There are so many things that you need to look for when you are looking for a mover. You must make sure that you are hiring professionals and people that you can trust, just to make sure that your belongings will be safe. Octopus Moving Company employs only professional loaders of the highest category. Here are the 5 most important qualification every mover should have;

Proper Training

Whether this means that they went to school and earned a certificate, or they have undergone an internship, you have to make sure that the individuals who will be handling your stuff are well-trained. You don’t want your items to be thrown in boxes and bags.

You want to make sure that the movers carefully place your item in the box and handle them with care. You also want individuals who know what to do when it comes to moving your valuable belongings through narrow corridors, doors, or even through windows without causing any damages.


The next qualification is experience. No matter how many certificates or training a mover may have, if they don’t have experience then they are as good as not having a certificate or any training at all. When you approach a Greensboro moving company, ask to know the specific movers that will be allocated to your house.

Then inquire about their past experience; what type of moving jobs they have been handling, proof of the jobs they have taken care of before, how long they have been in the business. Ask to also see their reviews if possible. Make sure to clearly check their background record and ensure that it is clean.

The importance of experience is that it is a guarantee that the movers are well conversant with what they are supposed to do and can meet your requirements. Once you are certified with their experience level, you don’t even need anything else. This should be a pass that they are a good match.

License and Insurance

A moving company can only be truly and fully qualified if they are licensed and insured. It is so easy to get schemed these days. Finding a bunch of men with a moving truck claiming to be professional movers is the norm. To avoid bumping into such, check out the license and insurance.

This not only indicates that they are qualified but also that they are legit and permitted to work in the state. You must ensure that they comply with the law. Insurance also acts as a liability for any potential damages that may occur. Check out that the employees who will work with you are insured.

Documents and Paperwork

You should never trust a moving company without the necessary paperwork needed to complete the job. This is one of the very first things to ask for as soon as you start the negotiation. Make sure they provide a contract or an estimate. And it doesn’t end there;

Make sure that you have every seemingly little detail written down. That is; packing services, loading, and unloading, disassembling of furniture, hours to work, and every other service you will potentially require. The last thing you want is to end up paying double the amount of the initial estimate. 


Last but not least, you want to make sure that the company has multiple positive reviews, on their site as well as other third-party sites. You first want to make sure that they have a place online and that you can look them up and easily find them.

Then check out reliable websites for reviews and find out what past clients think about their services. You can also find reviews on other platforms like social media. You want to confirm the type of clients they work with, how many clients they have potentially worked with in the past, how their services are said to be, and generally what to expect hiring them.
