Who Is the Best Moving Company in Washington, DC?

Who Is the Best Moving Company in DC?

When it comes to relocating, most people only want to hire the best of the best to transfer their belongings safely and efficiently. Those who are moving within the Washington DC area may want to know what to look for when hiring the most professional and reliable moving company. The process of moving can be stressful enough, so the last thing someone wants to deal with on top of that is a flaky and unorganized moving company. Rest assured, here is some information about the qualities to look for when deciding who is the best moving company in Washington, DC.

Q: How do I know the estimate provided is a fair price?

A: A reputable professional moving company will ask for an inventory of your items to determine the size of your move. The biggest factor of the price is based on the weight of your belongings and how much space will be taken up in the truck. If a moving company doesn’t ask questions about the amount and type of items that need to be hauled and transported, you may want to look elsewhere.

Q: What if the company requests a large deposit?

A: Unfortunately, there are plenty of scammer companies out there that are only interested in making a buck. Reputable movers won’t demand that you pay cash beforehand or submit a large deposit prior to moving day. In fact, you only should pay upon delivery. If you send the company a payment in advance, you can lose control as the customer. The company may show up late or cancel last minute, and then you have to fight for your money back.

Q: Is it okay that I ask for references from the moving company?

A: Absolutely! A professional moving company should be prepared with a list of references. If the moving company is not able to provide you with customers in the Washington DC area within the last year or so, that could be a red flag. Perhaps the company is new and hasn’t gotten enough clients yet, or they offer poor services and don’t have any customers that they know for sure will give them a positive review.

Q: Should I be concerned about extra hidden fees?

A: If you live in a two-story house or on a high floor in an apartment, notify the company when you are exchanging information. A reputable Washington DC moving company won’t charge you hidden fees without telling you. But, if you aren’t forthcoming with any extra labor that is involved with moving your items, you may have extra fees to deal with when you get the final bill.

Q: What if a Washington DC moving company representative wants to do a walk-through?

A: A representative from the moving company may ask to do a walk-through of your current home to get a better idea of what kinds of items need to be moved. This is a good sign, as this means the company wants to ensure they are prepared with tools, equipment, and an appropriately sized moving truck so all your belongings can be transported with ease.

When you are planning a move are trying to decide who is the best moving company in Washington, DC, look no further than Suburban Solutions.

    5 star ratingVery pleased with Suburban Solutions on a small move from suburban Maryland to suburban Virginia. They were on time and took care with the preparations and loading. The processes went incredibly smoothly. It was a good deal and I would use them again.

    We had the most pleasant experience with Suburban Solutions. Our team was professional and handled all our stuff with care. They wrapped all our furniture completely in moving blankets and taped them all around. All our neighbors said they never saw a moving company wrap furniture like that and were impressed. Our on site manager (who was there from start... read more

    5 star ratingWe were moving a 2 bedroom + apartment from Ardmore, PA (suburban Philadelphia) to southern Sussex Cty, DE (Bethany area) with an intermediate stop at our storage unit. We had heard a number of moving company horror stories so we were a bit apprehensive. From our first contact by phone with Suburban Solutions, things could not have gone more smoothly.... read more

    I hate moving. Dread it. Don't like it. Run from it. My wife and I moved our family of four from Philly to the suburbs in mid-August 2021. It was difficult to hire movers. Suburban Solutions was the fourth company I called and they had availability. So I booked them. I was... read more

  • 5 star ratingSuburban did an outstanding job with a recent pickup and delivery of antique furniture to our house, including moving existing furniture to make room. Communication with the manager about setting up the move was very good, and the crew was careful, efficient, and responsive to all our directions. I will definitely use them again.

The crew, managed by “Q”, was so professional, efficient, and thoughtful of my personal items, and I can’t thank them enough for their service. They eased my stress and anxiety about... read more

    On the day of the move, there were text alerts prior to my teams arrival that kept me in the loop. My movers Chuck and Ashford arrived on...

    Can't say enough about this company. Our crew of Vez (spelling might be wrong there), Mike and Mikey were top notch. They were prompt, careful, friendly, and efficient with the move. I've never had close to this pleasant of an experience with movers before, and I'll never use another moving company again. Will absolutely recommend to my friends and family,... read more
