  • What is included in the cost of the move? Be sure to clarify what services are included in the price quoted by the company, such as packing, loading, and transportation. 
  • Do you offer any discounts or promotions? Some moving companies offer discounts for senior citizens, military personnel, or students. 
  • Are you licensed and insured? It is important to ensure that the company is properly licensed and insured to protect your belongings and ensure that you are not liable for any damages during the moving process.

  • Can the company accommodate any special requests or needs you may have? If you have any special requests or needs, such as moving a piano or handling fragile items, be sure to discuss them with the company to ensure they can accommodate them. 
  • What is your timeline for the move? Get a clear understanding of the company’s timeline for your move, including pickup and delivery dates. 
  • Do you offer storage options? If you need to store your belongings for a period of time before or after the move, ask the company if they offer storage options. 
  • How do you handle special items? If you have any special items, such as antiques or fragile items, ask the company how they plan to handle these items during the move.
