Finally closing on a new home can be an exhilarating experience, especially since the stressful home buying process is finally over. However, you’re not out of the woods yet. You still must move.

Moving can be a challenge, which is why you’ll want to find a reputable mover you can trust. Here are five questions you should ask when going through the process of choosing movers:

  1. How much will it cost?
    Movers generally charge an hourly rate for short-distance moves or a rate based on weight for long-distance moves. Make sure they are willing to provide you with an estimate in writing.
  2. Are there additional fees?
    Some movers charge additional fees that they leave out of the estimate. For example, they may charge extra to move heavyweight items (such as pianos or safes) or to move anything up or down stairs. They should be transparent about such fees.
  3. How much experience do they have?
    Look for a mover that’s been around a while. Movers with a lot of experience are likely reputable since dishonest movers are usually discovered pretty quickly.
  4. Do they offer insurance?
    A good mover will provide basic insurance and will offer additional insurance options so you can protect your belongings.
  5. Can they provide referrals?
    Be wary of movers that can’t offer referrals. It means they can’t name a single customer that was happy with their services.

Don’t quickly hire the first mover you find. Keep in mind not all movers are equal. When choosing movers, be sure to ask these questions.
