5 IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN HIRING A MOVING COMPANY

Hiring a moving company in the Brainerd Lakes Minnesota area
Moving to a new home can be a lot of work. Realtors often suggest a few moving companies to help ease the workload. Whether buying or selling real estate, professional movers can help ease the process, making your Brainerd Lakes Area move as painlessly as possible. 
In the middle of Minnesota winter or Lake Country summer, qualified movers will use the utmost care to ensure your possessions are safely transported to your property.

When evaluating local movers or long-distance moving companies, consider asking these questions:

Does your moving company handle everything in-house? Or do you contract third parties?
Some companies only handle part of your move, contracting the rest to other parties. Make sure you know all the players before committing. 

Are you licensed, bonded, and insured?
The movers should be licensed and have insurance and bonding for theft and liability.  

Is there anything you do not move?
Some movers won’t transport high-value property, pianos, etc. Checking on this ensures you know what you’ll need to handle independently. 

How long has your company been in business?
Check on the company’s experience and history. It’s okay to ask for references and research online reviews. Also, ask about employee training to ensure you’re getting experienced labor.

What equipment do you use?
Ask about moving blankets, appliance dollies, furniture wraps, and ramps. How do they move fragile items like mirrors? Ideally, they have everything needed.
