Moving Tip of The Week – Know the Differences between a Moving Company and a Moving Broker
Knowing the differences between a Moving Company and a Moving Broker can help save you from a headache down the road. While a Moving Company is a singular company that books and performs moves themselves, a Moving Broker is a company that helps book your move with another moving company that the have a partnership with (essentially a middle man).
Some risks of using a Moving Broker are:
- The mover they book for you may not be licensed.
- The moving quote they give you may be significantly different than the final cost the actual mover charges you.
- Their knowledge and experience regarding the ins and outs of moving may be substandard.
- They may let you think they booked a mover for you when in reality they were not able to find you one.
