I recently had the opportunity to talk to with Tony Sandoval, the general manager of You Move Me, about what people should look for from a moving company.
What Tony explained first and foremost was to make sure that you are working with a company that is licensed, has the proper insurances, and follows the PUC laws for your specific state.
Outside of just these things though, he mentioned that it’s also important to check a company’s reputation. Whether that means looking them up on the Better Business Bureau, Yelp, Homeadvisor, Angie’s List, or elsewhere, it is always a good idea to get a sense of what is being said about a company.
Tony’s company, You Move Me, has a five-star rating overall.
Equally essential, he says, is knowing who you are working with. You Move Me doesn’t contract any work out. Their team is their team, so you can be sure that training and screening have been done internally and thoroughly.
Tony himself is the first and last person who oversees the process when he works with people to help them move.
Even in portions of the process that his team is responsible for, he is always there checking in to make sure that everything is going smoothly for them and for the client.
Back on the subject of insurance, Tony also told me that you should always check a company’s liability insurance. This is especially true if you’re moving into a high-rise or an apartment.
Not only does You Move Me have $2 million of liability insurance, they also have worker’s comp insurance and are otherwise covered in every aspect.
