In the United States, people relocate from coast to coast for various reasons. Some of these reasons include job changes, new jobs, school, a fresh start, and “just because.” Moving is a strenuous exercise, no matter what the reason for the relocation.
Many times it becomes laborious due to the time one has to put into “getting it done.” It becomes even harder when the people who are moving have accumulated a lot of “stuff.” This type of acquisition occurs in cases where people have not moved in decades (having had more time to collect), as well as those who may be defined as “pack rats.” Another term for pack rats, in this connotation, is “hoarder” and the appeal of studying what makes people hoard has turned into a reality TV show by the same name.
One thing that is needed is a moving company, especially if one has a lot of “stuff” and needs the professional experience to pack it and load it correctly for the move.
Sometimes one can get recommendations from friends, family members, co-workers, and other associates. In addition to referrals, an excellent source is the Internet. The Internet not only provides the information and details but also, in many cases, has user testimonials and reviews that a person can read. This research can help in making the decision of what moving company to use.
With the changing times, the Internet has become the platform for businesses to market their products and services, any interested party looking at a relocation is likely to turn to the internet for their research. Fortunately, it is as easy as performing a “Google search” for moving companies that cover the designated area.
Moving Companies Located In Los Angeles
Often, a company may be reviewed by using “review sites.” One example of an easy-to-use review site for moving companies is mymovingreviews.com. Some of the information below was obtained from other similar review sites.
In Los Angeles, there are many moving companies from which to choose. Areas that may differentiate them from each other would include rates, customer satisfaction and security.
These companies include the following:
Flat Rate Company: This company is a long distance moving company. They move customers across Los Angeles, and also abroad, they are located in the heart of the city with easy access to the 405 and 101 freeways, along with any road in between. From what they present, they have a professional reputation, countrywide certification, and personal service. Their employees are required to go through standard moving training to ensure that they are up to date on best practices in the industry.
Oz Moving And Storage Company: They mostly feature cost saving promotions to make moving a positive experience. They offer free moving supplies like cardboard moving boxes. They also offer special seasonal discounts.
Adept Moving Company: The site is a bit scary, looking like it was designed in the early 1990s. However, a book shouldn’t be judged by its cover and possibly the site is lacking because the time is being spent on quality moving service.
According to a review from someone who used their service, they showed up on time, were very professional, and did an excellent job. The client indicates that they appear to have known what they were doing. He goes on and explains their transparency in the fact that they talk about fuel charges and truck charges and cover topics that other moving companies don’t address. Another client talks about how the moving company brought enough packaging material for the job and kept her furniture clean. According to that client, they handled all of her items carefully the floors and walls stayed free from scratches.
North Star Moving Company: This company appears to have some very positive reviews, especially for short distance moves. However, when talking about a relocation, there is some concern. Many of the “complaints” against this company have to do with moving longer distances (like the relocation across the country to Los Angeles) and involve damages to personal property. The company’s responses (on the complaint site) appear to be caring, but the complaints indicate that the settlement of the damaged property does not end well.
In the United States, moving rates and services vary from company to company. It can be as easy and as difficult as the business you choose.
There are many more aspects to consider, beyond the moving company selection. For example, how would one move a pool table? Excellent tips are found on this blog about moving.
