“I worked solely with Tyler throughout my entire process. He came out to give me an estimate within 15 minutes of calling and had an estimate emailed to me within an hour after our meeting. He was incredibly professional during any of our brief phone calls, emails or texts. His quote was very accurate for all services provided and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a local moving service.”

Assessing the affordability of a moving company 

There’s a lot of moving companies in and around Greensboro, North Carolina– and affordability is one of the easiest and most effective ways to pare that number down. At Marathon Moving Company, we focus on full scale moving solutions– seeking to provide value in every moving service and all storage options we provide. And we do so in a way that both keeps your wallet healthy, and your mind stress free.

When assessing a moving quote and determining if a moving company (or a storage company) is affordable enough for you, one of the first things to consider is the number of items that need relocation. The more items that must be moved– be they household goods, valuables, industrial equipment, or something else– the higher your price will likely be. Additionally, the presence of valuables and other items that require more specific care will affect price. All moving companies are not created equal– so be careful not to assume a lower price means a better business. It takes time to move pieces the right way, and that time investment can occasionally come with a higher cost. Above all, it’s the quality of the company that matters. 

Red flags when it comes to pricing include so-called “affordable moving companies” that don’t provide a home estimate or business estimate before you book your service, any full service moving company with hidden fees you only find out about after the fact, or companies that only offer “packages” that include services you may or may not want. Prices for moving and storage should reflect only the services you’ll be receiving.

Warning signs to heed when choosing a moving company

Some moving companies may seem affordable and offer everything that you want— but it’s important to do more in-depth research to make sure they aren’t too good to be true. One of the best ways to verify a company? Assessing its reviews. Google, Facebook, Yelp and other platforms afford every company a review feature that their customers can use to indicate how much they enjoyed the service. At Marathon Moving Company, we’re proud to have a five star rating from over 75 residential and corporate relocation clients. But even if you decide to go with another local moving company and forego the best moving company in Greensboro, the reviews of any residential or commercial moving company will still give you an accurate reflection of whether or not the company is worth your time.

Additionally, it’s important to consider whether or not the commercial or residential moving company has moving insurance, and if it is licensed. If not, it likely won’t be able to pay for any damages that may accrue from any accidents. While the best moving company is one that is licensed and insured and won’t make costly mistakes, accidents do happen, and if the company is insured when an accident does occur, you’ll be able to collect the money owed for the damages.

Finally, it’s crucial that you assess the professionalism of the moving service you’re interested in using. Consider whether the team of movers has its own moving truck, or if they are using a rented van. Any professional company that claims to offer moving and storage services, relocation services, long distance moving services, or even generic local moving services will have its own tools and equipment– including moving trucks. While some local movers may not always  show up in a large semi– particularly if the job doesn’t call for a lot of work– the vehicle they arrive in still needs to be a company model equipped for moving. In the moving industry, a truck is one of the first things a professional buys. If the moving team you’re considering doesn’t have its own truck or van, it could be a red flag that the service is either illegitimate, or not a service at all! 

How to know you have the right moving company

When you know, you know. Moving is a process, and it’s a process that takes passionate, skilled, highly trained moving professionals to do right. If you’re interested in a residential mover, consider asking friends and family members that may have moved recently to provide you with referrals, or to point you in the right direction. If it’s a commercial moving company you’re after (or just need some office moving done), check out the potential company’s reviews, visit its storage facilities beforehand, and call a few other companies to get a free quote or a free estimate.  In both scenarios, the Better Business Bureau can also provide a wealth of information about the quality of the business.

Ultimately, the right moving and storage company for your residential or commercial moving service needs will be the one that offers the perfect combination of value, efficiency, and experience needed to get the job done excellently. At Marathon Moving Company, value is our number one goal with every customer we serve. We treat your items and belongings the way we’d like our own things to be treated, and we take pride in doing quality work day in and day out. We’re considered the best moving company in Greensboro because we keep our clients at the forefront of everything we do, and we seek to constantly improve the client experience and our efficiency.
