This article will tell you exactly what you should pay attention to when choosing a moving company to ensure a seamless moving experience.
1. Ask for Recommendations
Asking friends, family, or colleagues who have moved recently can be a good starting point. Ask them if they have had a positive experience and which company they used. You can also learn about pricing, whether anything was lost or damaged in the process, and if the workers were polite and professional.
If you don’t have anyone to ask for recommendations, skip over to the next step.
2. Search for Local Moving Companies in Maryland
You can do a simple Google search to find the moving companies near me. Then, you can compare that list with any recommendations you have collected to zoom in on or exclude companies from this list.
3. Check Rankings and Customer Reviews to Create a Shortlist
You want to consider the companies with the best reputation. But if a company you are considering is new or doesn’t have many online reviews, you can check their website, Facebook page, or reach out to them directly to learn some details.
4. Check Pricing Options
Get at least three quotes from the companies on your shortlist and see which one seems most suitable according to your budget and other criteria. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is, and there may be some hidden costs. It may be worthwhile to ask whether there are any additional expenses you may not be aware of.
Also, if the company requires a deposit of more than 20% upfront, that is a big red flag. Finally, when they show up for the estimate or while you are talking to them on the phone, try to gauge how professional and polite they seem. If they are rushing you and just want to get you off their backs, it is best to move on with the search.
5. Scheduling and Vehicles:
See if the company can accommodate your schedule for the pick-up and delivery dates and times. The best companies usually have enough vehicles and workers to accommodate your requests. However, if they rent vans or have difficulty finding the people for the job, you may want to skip that mover as well.
6. Licensing, Insurance, and Professional Accreditation:
Using a licensed company is a must if you want to ensure reliability and accountability. Moving companies need to be licensed by the Department of Transportation or the Public Utilities Commission. Take some time to verify the company’s license before hiring them. You can also check if the Better Business Bureau accredits the company and if they have a good rating.
Some moving companies don’t use insurance, and that is another important factor to look at.
You can also check the American Moving and Storage Association’s website to see if the company has been vetted for professionalism.
7. Company Address:
Check if the company’s address is listed under the company name. If it is listed under a residential name, that is also a red flag.
8. Additional Considerations :
Check if the company offers packing and storage services, boxes, and anything else that would make your move easier and less stressful. You can also ask them about their practices regarding complaints.
It takes some time and effort to choose the best moving company, but it is an essential task if you don’t want to be overcharged or get your property lost or damaged. There are over 7,000 complaints against US moving companies every year, and you don’t want to be the one adding to that number.

I have utilized Tristate Movers on more than one occasion. The employees assigned to move my daughters furniture and belongings from one location to another was excellent. The 2 Young men assigned to move her household goods were extremely professional, paid attention to detail ensuring her valuables (art work, antiques) we’re handled with the utmost care. I was extremely pleased with the move and would not hesitate do use this company again. I highly recommend Tristate Movers you won’t be disappointed!!
They were on time and the movers were courteous and professional. I was disappointed though that the sales rep did not send a big enough truck to make one trip, I would have cost me hundreds more for them to make two trips. Now I’ve been finishing my move with my 5×8 trailer for the past week .
Chris and Adonis were wonderful. The company was up front about the pricing and additional add-ons that we needed for the move. The movers showed up on time and were professional throughout the morning. We got the move done in about 3:30 hours and again, Chris and Adonis moved as fast as possible. They moved my TV and other sensitive items with care and after finally unpacking, we aren’t missing anything and nothing got damaged. Definitely recommend this company over the other because the pricing is fair and affordable for some really good work. I will for sure be using Tristate again and hopefully get Chris and Adonis again! Amazingly hard workers!
