You want to MAKE SURE that the company that you are hiring to move you is the company that shows up to move you. Some large movers subcontract out to local one or two truck movers if they overbook. These movers may or may not be of the same quality of experienced movers and there might be a much greater risk of an accident or breakage. Some people might be willing to take that risk while we find that most people would rather have their valuables moved by an experienced company that is the company that was hired for the job. Willamette Express will always be the company that shows up when we’re hired, our experience doesn’t mean you will necessarily pay more though, we are very competitive with our rates. Don’t take chances-hire Willamette Express.
The first question to ask any mover is are you registered, with whom and what are your registration numbers. Moving companies should have a USDOT (US Department of Transportation) number and also a State Registration number. Simply don’t do business with any mover that is not fully licensed and registered as many unforseen things could happen. You could have the mover take money and simply not show up, or show up and break valuable possessions and you have no way to file against them. Worse is a scenario where someone gets injured or even dies on the job, and there is not proper liablility coverage to handl the claims. The industry is very competitive and so our prices are very competitive. You don’t have to sacrifice a thing doing business with a fully licensed and registered company like Willamette Express, but you risk alot if you don’t ask the right questions.
