Home » Blog » apartment moves » The Good, the Bad & the Ugly of Moving Companies

Moving can be very stressful for everyone involved, so the last thing you want to worry about is hiring a “bad” moving company. Unfortunately, plenty of these bad moving companies are around and some of them can get downright ugly with you when they don’t do their job correctly! Check out RNR Moving’s tips to differentiate between the good, the bad and the ugly of these movers.

The Good

At RNR Moving we are not only a “good” moving company, we are the BEST! We have earned a reputation as a reliable moving company for both local and long distance moves. Here’s the proof: We are registered with the State of Georgia, hold a local business license, have proper moving company insurance, and have all of our required motor carrier credentials.

The Bad

Screen your potential movers from a state and federal level. We know, it takes some time out of your day to do so, but it’s better to be sure of who your are allowing into your home! On the state level check out the Better Business Bureau, the FMCSA website (for each state’s regulatory resources), and the American Moving and Storage Association (also has state-by-state moving rules and regulations); the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is another good place to investigate movers. If you find nothing but bad news about your potential movers or your find no information at all, you may want to look elsewhere because this may be a bad moving company.

(Did we mention RNR Moving has an A+ rating with the BBB?)

The Ugly

As horrific as it sounds, some moving companies can change from nice to ugly in a snap when it comes to moving prices and estimates. Extreme cases have even seen these ugly companies holding people’s belongings hostage until they get paid MORE than what was agreed upon! Don’t let these “companies” take advantage of you! Compare estimates of various moving companies; be sure to look for any hidden fees that could prevent you from getting your stuff back. Also, be sure to confirm the company’s insurance! Just because they say they have it, doesn’t mean they really do!
