There’s no getting around it; planning a move is a stressful process. That’s why it’s so important to find the right residential moving company to guide you through the process. Depending on your move, you’re going to be looking for different services and support. Luckily, there are a wide range of full-service moving and storage companies out there that offer customizable plans that are tailored to your needs.
One of those companies? Metropolitan Van & Storage!
Since we first opened our doors back in the 1940s, we’ve been handling all types of moves throughout the Bay Area and beyond. That said, you can trust us to know what we’re talking about when it comes to what to look for in your home movers.
Honestly, there are so many things you should look into when it comes to finding the right moving team, but we’ve narrowed it down to the three biggest aspects to focus on:
- Offered Services
- Reviews & Track Record
- Affordable Rates
Comprehensive Services that Meet YOUR Needs
Even a highly rated moving company may not be the right fit for you. Be sure to look at the services they offer and ask as many questions as you need to ensure you’re working with a company that can completely accommodate you during your relocation. Some common packing and moving services to ask about include:
- Full-Service Packing
- Partial Packing Options
- Packing Material Sales
- Comprehensive Storage Options
- Efficient Transportation
Positive Reviews & Good Track Record
Once you’ve established the company offers the services you need, it’s time to dive a bit deeper. Instead of focusing on what the movers have to say about themselves, look to their past customers. Check out not only their star rating but how many reviews they have to get a better picture of their quality of work.
For example, Metropolitan has been in business for over 80 years, and we’ve helped thousands of customers move across the country and beyond along the way. Over the years, we’ve also become a:
- BBB-Accredited Business
- Diamond-Certified Moving Company
- ProMover with the American Moving & Storage Association
- Agent for Atlas Van Lines
Affordable & Transparent Moving & Storage Rates
One of the frustrating things about working with the wrong residential moving company is being saddled with unexpected costs after the move is completed. Before you commit to your home movers, be sure they offer upfront pricing without hidden fees or add-ons that can come back to bite you. This goes for storage rates as well!
At Metropolitan, we start every job with a complimentary consultation where we’ll go over your specific situation and provide an accurate estimate, so you know exactly what to expect from start to finish.
