Take care to find a company that has sensibility at every level of the process. Sometimes things can get caught up in the rigmarole of contracts and agreements, and while contracts are necessary to the hiring process, so is common sense. Common sense is also useful for the person moving to make wise decisions and see the logic pitfalls when they arise. Sensibility is being reasonable not logically but also when things come down to a small human error.

Finally, every company you consider should be respectable. That means they should have the proper permits and legal processes, and they should practice respect in the office and with you as a customer. There are always business licenses and credentials that can show a potential client that at business is legit and reputable. Expect to be treated with respect and observe how underlings are treated by management when you go in to meet with a moving company. The right moving company will treat you with kindness and understanding. Following these guidelines is the only way to know if you are at the right company.
