A good moving company should also have an insurance cover to protect your goods when they are being handled by them. This is an important feature, and you must always ask the company and learn how much they are covered for.
Above all, make sure you have everything in writing. A moving company that gives their terms and estimates in writing are more reliable and will do a good job, and you will also be protected against any attempts to increase the price halfway through the moving process.
Your household things are valuable to you. Ensure they are handled by professionals.
