Choosing a Reliable & Professional Moving Company In Cape Town

Advice on Choosing a Professional Moving Company

With so many people moving locally and Nationwide within South Africa there is certainly no shortage of moving companies in South Africa. However, not all companies are equal, and able to offer some service, but here are some advice on how to choose a professional moving company.

1. Check their credentials, certificate and insurance.

It's important to check if the company is registered within South Africa, and have a registration certificate. A certificate or a trade license is a legal certificate that allows a company to operate within South Africa. Companies without a trade license are operating illegally therefore you're at the risk of not getting the best service.

2. Read the reviews from past customers.

Reading reviews on Google, and Facebook is a great way to see what sort of experiences other customers had with that particular company you are looking to hire for your furniture moving. These reviews will give you a sense of the company's strengths and weaknesses.

3. Ask how your furniture / goods will be packed/ transported.

A reputable and reliable moving company should have a professionally trained team, who will pack your goods and furniture for you, using high-quality packing materials.

4. Select a company that has been around for some time.

Selecting a company with a proven track record will ensure that the company is reliable and knowledgeable within the moving industry. Companies that have been in existence for some time will have a trained team of experienced packers and movers available for you.

5. Vehicles

Although we operate in a dry climate it does rain, and we do suffer different weather elements that are calamitous to your personal belongings — ensure your moving company provides enclosed body moving trucks.

Whilst everyone has a budget to stick to, the price should not be your only deciding factor. All the above should be carefully considered before making a decision based on costs. Generally, you will get what you pay for and if it sounds too good to be true, it is usually.

Most reputable moving companies in Cape Town, South Africa will have a consultant who will be willing to pay you a visit, free of any charges or obligations to provide you with an onsite accurate quote
