What to seek out in a moving company
May 19, 2017 / Move Management
While there are plenty of moving companies out there, they aren't all equally trustworthy, accomplished or effective. Do you know what to look for as you begin the process of moving? Keep these attributes in mind:
A commitment to professionalism
Movers are responsible for taking nearly everything a person or family owns - outside of a few exceptions - and safely carrying it to a new home. Whether the destination is 5 or 5,000 miles away, individuals and families count on movers to make sure everything arrives in good condition.
That's why dependable, trustworthy movers carry the appropriate insurance policies for their vehicles and offer valuation options to help keep customers' property safe while in transit. They also properly vet their staff, conducting background checks and taking other measures to ensure employees are reliable and safe.
Unprofessional movers may not take some or all of these steps, which can leave your family in a bad situation should an accident or willful malfeasance happen during your move.
Recognition and awards
Atlas uses two levels of recognition - internal assessments and external certification - in an effort to provide customers with the best experience possible. Internally, we regularly measure the performance of Atlas agents to ensure to ensure a level of high-quality work and issue awards to those who truly excel. Achievements range from excellence in providing packing services to safety and customer service accomplishments for van operators.
Outside certifications are also critical for moving companies. They demonstrate that outside agencies recognize the professionalism and consistent performance offered by movers such as Atlas. We are proud of our network-wide ProMover certification for all agents, the highest quality standard developed and endorsed by the American Moving & Storage Association.
Atlas World Group, the parent company for all Atlas ventures, also boasts an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. That exceptional achievement stems from the length of time for which Atlas has been in business and our transparent business practices.
Finding the right moving company doesn't have to be a complicated or difficult process. You simply need to find a moving service that prioritizes customer service and follows through on a commitment to provide an excellent experience from the initial quote to the last box being moved off of the truck. With those qualities in mind, give the professionals at Atlas a call.
