If you are a realtor, corporate housing company, a business that regularly relocates employees, or even a seniors housing you’ll know the benefits of bringing some kind of added service value to your clients.

Some moving scams involve movers charging way to much, adding a lot of unexpected charges to your bill that weren’t on your estimate, or worst of all, having you pay beforehand and then not showing up at all.
Unfortunately, these kinds of moving scams are far too common. Fortunately, they’re easy to avoid if you do your research and follow a few simple steps before hiring a local moving company.
There are a lot of moving companies out there with varying prices, so how do you know which one is offering you the best value for the cost? And how do you know which companies are the best quality?

Quality moving companies do more than just show up with a truck; they also have other services, like packing supplies.
The more organized you are during your move, the less stressful it will be. And when it comes to staying organized during your move, nothing is more important than packing. A lack of the appropriate packing materials can take your move from efficient to disastrous in a flash.
