When you're planning on hiring residential movers, one of the most common questions brought up is if you should hire a moving and storage company or if you should hire moving brokers. There are some misconceptions and confusion around this topic—so we thought we'd break down the reasons why choosing a moving company is wiser. But before we do that, we thought you might want to know more about us.

Supporting Local

It's always a good thing to keep your money local. When you hire a moving company, you'll be spending money on a company that's located nearby to you. Moving brokers are national and have no locality specifics.

Trucks and Equipment

A moving company will own all of its equipment and likely be a certified agent for a reputable moving truck company, such as Allied Van Lines. Moving brokers have to rent their equipment and may be unprepared.

Services Provided

Moving brokers are very limited in the services that they offer and likely won't be able to meet your needs. Moving companies will allow you access to full-service solutions that make your move simple.


Before hiring anybody, you'll want to do some reputation research. Moving companies will likely have tons of testimonials for you to browse through while moving brokers will likely have nothing listed on their websites.

Damage Protection

If your belongings get damaged during the moving process, it helps to know that a moving company has insurance to cover these mistakes. Moving brokers are uninsured, and you'll be left with the bill.

Interstate Moving

Long-distance movers have to have specific licensing and permission to carry out interstate moves. Moving brokers will not have these special credentials and will not be able to move you long distances.
