What to Look for in a Waterloo Moving Company

By: Heather @ 3:52 pm

Just because a friend of a friend has a pickup truck doesn’t mean you should rely solely on them when moving to, or from Waterloo. You’re going to want to hire a professional Waterloo moving company with a proven track record of success who you can trust to ensure a stress-free move. There are many moving companies offering their services in Waterloo, yet it can be difficult to determine which is the best choice. To help you in your search, we have compiled a list of some of the top qualities to look for in a Waterloo moving company.

Years of Service

When you are looking for a Waterloo moving service, experience counts. Make sure you pay attention to a company’s track record because it demonstrates their ability and willingness to deliver every time. While insurance may cover the monetary value of certain objects, nothing can replace the value of sentimental items, such as your child’s hand painting or old family photos. As a result, it’s best to choose a moving company with years of successful moving experience. When you work with a company with experience, you can rest assured your property will be handled with the utmost care and respect, and your items transported in a safe and secure manner.

Successful Moves

The number of successful moves a company has, is as equally important as the number of years a moving service has been in business. When you’re choosing your Waterloo moving company, make sure you ask about the number of successful moves they’ve accomplished. If a mover claims 10 years of service but has only 10 successful moves, you should be wary of this type of ratio. Instead, it’s best to choose a mover with multiple years in the business and a sufficient number of successful moves as well.

Quality of Fleet

Just as you wouldn’t want to ride in a dilapidated taxi, your furniture and belongings shouldn’t be transported in unstable and broken down vehicles. When you are choosing a Waterloo moving company, make sure you pay attention to the quality of the moving trucks and equipment. In addition, the quality of fleet speaks volumes about the integrity and level of business the Waterloo moving service conducts. Any reputable business will perform proper maintenance and ensure their equipment is presentable. Old, dirty, and damaged equipment communicates the level of pride the mover has in their business.


When choosing a Waterloo moving company, it’s imperative the mover has sufficient insurance. While choosing a group of guys who move furniture as a side job may seem like the economical choice, it could cost you more in the end if your stuff is damaged. On the other hand, an insured mover will be able to offer the replacement value in the event your personal belongings are damaged in the move.


Undoubtedly, professionalism is a necessary facet of the Waterloo moving company you choose. When you call the company, will a secretary answer the phone from an office or will you have to yell over children screaming in the background when you speak to the mover. If there are hiccups in the move, will the mover call you back or will you have to take them to court to reconcile your differences? In other words, is your mover professional and do they communicate professionalism in all of their work? When you are choosing a Waterloo moving company, you shouldn’t substitute professionalism for a seemingly cheap price.
