Before doing business with a moving company, be sure to ask the right questions – ask about the business, their processes and procedures and about the type of service they provide. Here’s a list of important questions we think you should ask first. Then, I’ll tell you how U-Pack Moving answers those questions.

The search for a good moving company doesn’t have to be like the search for Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. Good moving companies do exist; you just have to know where to look. Finding them is all about knowing what type of service you need, how the services compare and how to check credibility.

It’s Flashback Friday! Each week we take a look back at a post that’s been helpful to our readers in the past. Today’s flashback is for all of those folks looking for ways to move on a budget. It’s all about cheap moving companies. Happy Friday!
Don’t we wish that all moving companies were cheap moving companies – especially in this economy? I think yes. But, here’s the big question: Is cheaper always better? Sometimes yes. Sometimes no.
Sometimes when it comes to cheap moving companies, you get what you pay for.

I heard a terrible story a few days ago
one that made me want to remind everyone to be very careful about the moving company you choose. I won't name any names – since I believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty and I only got one side of the story – and it was the Reader's Digest version. But, still, I've heard these stories before – and if you look at message boards online, you'll probably read similar stories. Really, it's just heart-breaking.

Working for a moving service makes me overly conscious of what questions should be asked when choosing moving companies. It's kind of like how mechanics know what to look for when your car doesn't run and how realtors know what to do to sell your house quickly – when it's what you do, it's what you know.
So, I try to put myself in the shoes of the person who has never moved before - just to consider all the questions that surface when choosing moving companies.
Here's the beginning of my list of questions people ask (and my answers)
