We know how stressful moving may seem. And when you're seeking help for your move, you might begin to feel even more overwhelmed. Don't worry—we're here to offer you some guidance in this decision. 

In this blog, we'll discuss all of the benefits of using a moving company rather than a moving broker. But first, how about a little info about us?

Since 1989, Alex Moving & Storage has been the top residential movers in Orange County. Our team takes pride in offering solutions that are designed to reduce your stress levels during the moving process.

Services Provided

Some moves require more involved solutions, and moving brokers aren't able to offer all of the same services that moving companies can. Moving companies will help with packing, unpacking, transportation, and more—moving brokers will not do this.

Necessary Equipment

Most moving companies own their own trucks, equipment, and facilities. A moving broker will only be able to rent these critical components.

Licensing for Interstate Moving

When you need long-distance movers, you'll want a moving company, as they are required to undergo proper licensing for interstate moves. On the other hand, moving brokers do not have permission to carry out these kinds of services.

Damage Protection and Reimbursement

If any of your items are damaged during a move, a moving company will be your point of contact and will have to reimburse you for any damages. Moving brokers hold no liability in these matters.

Support Local Economy

When you hire a moving company, you'll be supporting workers that likely live in the same area as you, stimulating your local economy. Moving brokers have employees spread out across the country.

Reputation Research

Reputation is everything, and you'll be able to quickly figure out the reputation of the moving company that you've chosen to hire by doing a quick search on the internet. A moving broker will likely not have any reviews, so you won't be able to know if they're reputable or not.
