Moving companies are everywhere, but you may not know how to find movers that fit your needs for your move to Texas or within the Lone Star State. To find movers, you can:
Your friends, family and neighbors make great go-to sources to find movers in your area. Ask them about their experiences using a moving company and see if they have any recommendations. Finding a company that you know has done a great job in the past gives you a good idea of their work ethic.
Search for a registered moving company.
The American Moving & Storage Association is an exclusive partner with moving.com, and all movers registered on the site are fully licensed and insured. It's still important to ask for a mover's proof of license and insurance before hiring them. Moving.com is updated every three weeks with a list of currently licensed companies and is a great place to find movers.
Contact a local real estate agency.
If you have a realtor, he or she should be a great source for moving information. If you don't have a realtor, just call a local agency and ask their opinion on the best way to find movers. Or you can find a realtor on realtor.com and send them an email.
Use the phone book or online Yellow Pages.
The phone book is still a great source of information when you want to find movers. If you flip through the phone book you'll find plenty of movers listed. In addition, most business directory publishers also have an equivalent version of their information online. Superpages, DexKnows and YP are three examples. Each one may also have additional information on individual movers such as a link to the movers' Web site.
Once you find movers in your area that you can work with, check another moving-day task off your list. It's a good idea to get the electricity set up in your new home before move-in day. This will allow you to unpack your belongings and move boxes with the lights on. Going with a dependable electricity provider can help make your move easier.
