six characteristics of the ideal moving company

Professional Movers in Philadelphia

Whether you're moving to your dream home in the new development just minutes from your current place, or you're relocating to a neighboring state, the most important component of this often-stressful and definitely-exhausting process is ensuring the safe transfer and timely delivery of all of your precious belongings to your new location.

Carefully handling, wrapping, packing, boxing, lifting, transporting, and then unpacking your family heirlooms, your Lenox Christmas china, your cool (and irreplaceable) Derek Hess art collection, Great-Grandpa's favorite chair, all your high-tech audio and video gizmos and gadgets, your treasured dining room table, and all your recently-purchased pieces is not an easy feat; that's why God created professional, intelligent, and dependable movers.

6 Characteristics of the Ideal Moving Company:

It is a Jack (and Master) of One Trade

The old adage, "Jack of all trades, master of none" applies to many industries, including moving. By choosing a company in Philadelphia that is focused on all-things-moving (vs. a towing company that also happens to do roofs, unclog drains, and move people's personal property), you'll be hiring a company you can count on to answer all your questions, handle your property professionally, and deliver exceptional service.

Additionally, their professional movers possess many diverse skills — an ability to communicate well with others, physical strength and stamina, common sense, and an ability to tend to the details while keeping the big picture in mind — all of which help contribute to their expertise in the one industry: Moving.

It has References, Referrals, & Other Happy Campers

What do previous customers write, say, and share online (and in your local grocery store line) about the experiences they've had with the moving company you are considering? By taking the time to read reviews (the raves and the rants) of other customers regarding their personal experiences with the moving company, you'll be better equipped to make a more-informed and confident decision.

You'll get a unique insight into how the company operates in a home, how they handle challenges, and how they fare in their customer service skills. Ask the company for referrals. If they say they're not at liberty to disclose that personal information about their customers, suggest they give your name and phone number to three of their clients. Most customers who are satisfied with a service are happy to share their experience with others (as are clients who weren't so happy with the service!)

It Provides a Price-Lock Guarantee

While most moving companies demand payment upfront or at least a deposit, finding a company that stands behind its service so much that your payment won't be authorized for the services until your move is complete is pretty remarkable.

With a trustworthy, integrity-based moving company of this caliber, you can rest assure there will be NO hidden fees. Most moving companies throw in additional fees at the end, such as travel fees. However, with Intelligent Movers, you know exactly what you'll be paying for upfront and are typically given a payment code. Once the services have been rendered and you're satisfied with the results, you give the Company Representative/Mover your assigned payment code and then the payment is processed.

It Offers Specials

The top moving companies offer some sort of incentive, special, or bonus as a way of thanking their customers for their business, referrals, and loyalty. One great way to demonstrate appreciation is to offer a dollar amount refund if the customer agrees to submit a review on his/her experience with the moving company. Whether the review is good or bad, the professional moving company will honor the reward and refund the customer the stated dollar amount.

Welcomes (and Responds to) Feedback

While good reviews encourage and inspire potential customers to hire a moving company in Philadelphia, not-so-great reviews help the company to become aware of areas in need of improvement and the chance to become an even better moving company. Further, an ideal moving company immediately addresses and responds to any negative comments/concerns from customers. A company response could include an apology, a promise to look into and follow-up with the concern, and/or an offer of a discount on future services.

It Makes a Great First Impression

Find a moving company that employs uniformly-dressed professionals with identification badges. This is a sure-sign the company is established and takes great pride in themselves. Companies that invest back in themselves as reflected in the appearance and training of their employees help ensure they are not simply a fly-by-night business that will be gone before you're moved into your new home.

Before hiring the services of a moving company in Philadelphia, consider the qualities of the great ones.
