Research your moving companies carefully.   A mover with a very low bid may be a fly-by-night operation which can result in both delayed deliveries and damaged goods.  Check with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ( which can link you to websites where, for a fee, you can uncover safety records and other valuable information.

Get comprehensive estimates.  It is recommended that consumers obtain bids from at least three carriers.  But make sure to go into detail:  "Ask for rates for extra services – packing, storage, long carry, stairs, bulky items, handling and fuel surcharge.”  Those may make your moving bill skyrocket on moving day.
