Hiring a Pasadena Moving Company and what to look for
- Are they licensed to move you?
When you’re trying to find a Pasadena moving company you can rely on, one of the first things you should do is find out whether or not the company you want to hire has its license. You can search for the status of a license by checking to see if the company has its USDOT number. This easy search will also provide you with additional information such as the insurance information for the company, phone, fax, address, and even the amount of trucks the moving company has.
- Does the moving company have insurance?Having proper insurance is equally important, all Pasadena movers should have insurance. You can search to make sure a moving company has proper insurance by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. By entering the company name, USDOT, or docket number, you’ll be able to see if the company has proper insurance. Making sure you’re using a company that has both a license and insurance is extremely important to your move.
- Does the moving company take credit or debit cards?
Any legitimate company will take either a credit or debit card. Stay away from moving companies that might want cash as a form of payment. You cannot trace cash payments, so it’s a good idea only to hire a company that can take debit or credit card payments. Usually, companies that don’t have a license will only allow cash as a form of payment. To get a merchant account, a company must be legitimate, have a license, and all the necessary paperwork.
- Have you checked their online reviews?
Nothing is better than online reviews when it comes to choosing a company to hire. Almost all companies will have a negative review here or there. It’s important to only go with a moving company that has at least four stars or greater. It’s important to search moving review sites like Yelp, Google Reviews, and the BBB and only consider hiring a company that has at least four stars or better.
- Do they have reliable trucks?
If you go back to the business license search tool, this site will show you more about their fleet size. Also, consider looking at their website or address on Google Maps. Doing a quick Google Maps search will give you a better idea of what their actual business location looks like, along with their fleet of trucks. Having you load a huge house into a truck only to have it break down in the middle of your move would turn an already stressful situation, into a much more stressful situation. Long story short, only hire a moving company that has reliable, new trucks.
Making sure that a moving company you hire fits these criteria is extremely important.
