Reviews and testimonials are your best friends in this situation. When checking out potential moving companies, it’d be a good idea to go online and check out their social media page and Google Reviews.

It’s always best to go with a company that has stellar reviews and testimonials from their past customers. Do also ask around amongst friends and family to recommend any moving companies that they may have used in the past.
