– CHECK FOR CLIENTS REVIEWS
One of the best ways of getting good referrals is looking for other clients’ opinions about the service they had.

Take a good look before selecting who will make your move.
– SCHEDULE IN ADVANCE
Especially during the quarantine, the companies who are still working are having lots of troubles with their schedule. So it is better to plan and schedule your move with at least two weeks of anticipation. Many of these local companies are offering discounts when you do it or when you reschedule with a 48hrs notice. They can try to put some other client in the hours you had previously reserved.
– EVALUATE THE SERVICE
When you also refer to other costumers about the quality of the service you’ve been provided with, you help them to get a well- renowned firm to do the job they need or to avoid having the same trouble you did. You can tell your experience on their websites and blogs that always make lists of several reviews from their clients. Those lists are also good material to check before contacting a moving company.
– DO YOU NEED A STORAGE UNIT?
Sometimes, when moving to smaller locations, it is better to rent or buy a storage unit to keep some of your things. As said, most of the population is working from home, so a storage unit can be useful to prevent yourself from an even bigger lack of space. They are rented by the month, and are at good prices due to less demand it’s having nowadays. You’ll be secure that a trustable company has in their facilities something you had no place in your house anymore.
– SEARCH FOR SPECIALIZED WORK BEFORE SIGNING A CONTRACT
