Moving is almost always more stressful than it needs to be. To make it a little easier, we have a list of what to look for when hiring a moving company.

Recommendations From Trustworthy Experts 

Hiring the right moving company is the key to a stress-free move. When looking for a moving company, don’t just rely on Google for information on good moving services. If you know people in the moving industry, ask them for recommendations. 

How do you tell if someone is trustworthy? Look for the AMOSA (The Accredited Movers of South Africa) accreditation. AMOSA is the national accreditation body for movers and sets standards for the moving industry to follow. Any mover or expert associated with AMOSA is therefore reliable for a well carried out move. Of course, Master Movers is a proud AMOSA accredited moving company in South Africa.

Online Reviews

To find trusted sources, you need to do your research. Learn more about the moving company. Look at the reviews that people have left them. Hello Peter? reviews for example, can show you the good experiences that people have had with the moving company. You can also look at reviews from the company’s website or social media pages. Positive reviews indicate that they are professional movers you can trust. 

Luckily, Master Movers is a professional moving company with good reviews and testimonials to our name. Some of our great reviews from our top clients can be found on our Hello Peter review page. We also have great reviews on our testimonial page.

Look for Red Flags

A professional and reputable moving company will be easy to verify. Look for a licence and make sure they have a valid physical address. Be cautious of movers that don’t have a physical address or claim to be moving brokers – these are not legit companies and they will try to scam you.

To avoid being a victim of fraud, call the company on a landline or take a drive to the company’s address. Although it is possible to book movers online these days, a good moving company will have sound infrastructure and clear branding. 

Do they offer insurance coverage? Do they offer a fully comprehensive in-transit cover? What are their credentials and years of experience? Experienced movers will have accreditation to their name and years of experience in moving and packing clients.
