April 28th, 2011 - 2:26 PM

Whether you're just planning your college debut or finally donning your cap and gown, moving to (or from) college is a major event. Since finding reliable college movers can be a difficult process, we've compiled some important details to look for when choosing a reputable moving company.

Finding college movers: tips and tricks

  • A knowledgeable and friendly staff goes a long way. When choosing reliable college movers, the first thing to look for is a knowledgeable and friendly sales representative. Make sure they listen carefully and address your questions and concerns. Skilled moving companies should be able to answer any questions you have and provide you with an e-mail address and contact telephone number in case of emergencies.
  • Read your moving quote carefully. Be sure to have a detailed quote when choosing reliable college movers. The quote should be based on your specific moving situation and any unique circumstances that you may have. It is important to fully understand all estimated charges and under what circumstances they may change. U-Pack's website has a great resource that explains any situation or reason that would cause your moving price to change.
  • Check references. An important step in choosing reliable college movers is checking out testimonials from previous customers. Websites such as Epinions and Kudzu are great places to find consumer reviews.
  • Make sure your moving company is insured and certified. Check to see if the moving company you decide on is approved by the Better Business Bureau.  The BBB is a good resource for helping consumers determine if the movers they're considering are trustworthy and reliable.. You can also ask any moving company for their Department of Transportation (DOT) number to verify their legitimacy.

Choosing reliable college movers doesn't have to be stressful; just remember to keep these factors in mind when trying to decide which company to use. -Have questions about student moving? Give us a call at 800-413-4799.
