Moving is not fun. 

I have never known anyone that looks forward to moving. 

Oftentimes moving can be stressful, time-consuming, and overwhelming. 

With that said, in order to reduce stress and save time, it is important that you know what to consider when hiring a moving company. 

Over the years I have moved quite a bit.

My family has moved from our starter home to a much larger home and we have also moved to an entirely new city that was 6 hours away. 

Each of our moves went much smoother than the one before each time we moved we learned something new.

Take a look at these helpful tips to consider before hiring a moving company. 

What to Consider Before Hiring a Moving Company

  1. Cost- Moving is very expensive. There is absolutely no way to get around spending money when you move, therefore when you are making a decision on which moving company to use, make sure that you research the details of the cost. It is important to know how you are charged along with any possible hidden fees. 
  2. Reviews- Unfortunately when customers leave a review for a company, too often they are negative reviews. With that said, it is still important to read the reviews that are left by previous customers. Of course, you will want to decipher the negative reviews and notice if there are any common complaints.  
  3. Licensed and Insured- You want to make sure that when you consider which moving company to hire that the moving company knows what they are doing. You want them to be held accountable if they damage a piece of furniture of other belonging of yours.  
  4. Skill Level- It is important to research the skill level that the moving company provides. If you need a heavy item such as a piano moved, it is important to know if the moving company that you are contemplating using can provide that. 
  5. Longevity- I always like to research to see how long a company has been in business. While it is important to give new companies a chance it is also very important to hire a company that has a solid history of serving customers. 
  6. Referrals- Whenever I look to hire a company I have never worked with, I like to ask friends along with the local community if they have had experience with the company that I am considering using. People are always willing to provide their opinion and experience. 
  7. Customer Service- First impressions are important. Make sure that when you call the moving company that you are considering hiring that you pay attention to the customer service that they provide you. If something goes wrong with the move then you will want to make sure that you know when you contact the moving company that they are professional, courteous, and helpful. Ensuring this will alleviate quite a bit of unnecessary stress. 

One moving company that has matched my needs and has been in business since 2015 is Our Truck Moving. This is a Dallas- Fort Worth Metroplex moving company that is experienced and is located in Garland, Texas, in addition to the Dallas- Fort Worth metroplex and surrounding areas. 

They offer a wide variety of services that include but not limited to packing, heavy lifting, commercial jobs, residential jobs, and labor only jobs.

In addition, if you need to have a piano moved, Our Truck Moving, Garland piano movers, know how to handle heavy and bulky pianos. They are equipped and properly trained for moving these large items. Because they know that pianos are very expensive but also delicate they make it their top priority to keep them protected throughout the move. 

They also take the time to listen to your needs to determine exactly what you need to help with any unwanted stress during your move. 

If you or someone you know is planning to move or simply needs other services such as packing it is important to know what to consider before hiring a moving company. You want to make sure that you choose a moving company that not only fits your needs but is also a moving company that provides excellent service and creates a stress-free move for you and your family. 

in order to reduce stress and save time, it is important that you know what to consider when hiring a moving company.


  1. My older sister and her husband are planning on moving into a new house in a couple of weeks and they need to hire a moving company. It is good to know your suggestion to ask your friends that are willing to provide their experience for referrals. I will have my sister ask her friends that she trusts for recommendations of great moving companies they can hire.
