Make moving day a whole lot easier by hiring reputable long distance moving firms in Simi Valley. Start by asking the right questions during the interview. Don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered with the following interview questions:

How long have you been in business?

Companies will likely have this information on their site. If they don’t, that’s a red flag you wouldn’t want to dismiss. Consider the length of experience the company has. The greater its experience, the better.

Are you licensed?

They should be. Also, keep in mind that interstate movers will need to carry a license to operate in your new and old state. Make sure you clear this up with the moving company right from the get-go.

Are my belongings insured?

Not all companies offer this feature so you’ll want to ask about it upfront. Find out if the crew and company are insured as well. If they are, then your bases are covered. Don’t just take their word for it, though. Ask for proof of insurance liability and coverage.

Can I request for references?

References help you get a better gauge on the firm and decide whether it’s a good fit with you or not. A company that does excellent work will be more than happy to provide you with that list. If the company keeps giving you excuses for not having one, though, take a careful step back and consider other options.

Do you measure doorways and stairways in advance?

A good moving company will do so, says the Huffington Post. You could also take pictures of the stairs and elevators, hallways and doors to make it easier for the crew. That way, the long distance moving firm in Simi Valley you hire will have enough time to prep its crew to avoid any damage or accidents during the move.
