Movers are invariably one of two things: Either they are your best friends or your worst enemies. It is a huge task you are entrusting to the people who help you to relocate, and some people are better suited to perform the job than others. If you do your homework, you can end up with a team of skilled and knowledgeable people who will make a tough job much easier.

In any field, you can find people who love their job and people who despise it. This holds equally true with household movers, as you are likely to find that some people are truly interested in helping people start new lives on a positive note, and others are just looking to make a buck. There is no foolproof way to distinguish between the two, but begin by sharpening your powers of observation and trusting your gut.

Distinguishing Between Good and Bad Movers
Good movers never pressure you. They know that their service will speak for itself, and that a responsible person is naturally going to consider many companies before making a choice. They do not bombard you with calls or emails, and they do not hide their licensure and insurance information. Their Better Business Bureau information indicates few complaints, and more importantly, that complaints have been successfully resolved.

People who do not meet these criteria should automatically be viewed as bad movers and should be removed from consideration immediately. You should not take chances when moving your most valued possessions. Who knows what can happen when they end up in the hands of the wrong people? A successful move begins with movers you can trust.
