Hire the most professional movers you can find. Do some research and find companies that have excellent customer reviews, a stellar track record and provide solid services for a reasonable price. A trouble-saving tip is to ask for a reference from a client the company moved at least three years ago. Moving companies may change their names and re-open the business under another guise if they have been previously sued or reported to the Better Business Bureau. Be cautious of companies who have not successfully been in business for at least three years, and of any company using a modified prison van as a removal truck.
