Moving Company Vs Moving Broker

Elephant Movers and StorageAttention movers in San Antonio!  Do you know the difference between a moving company vs a moving broker?

What is a moving broker?

It’s definitely not a mover!!!! Brokers do not have the operational and logistic capabilities that moving companies have. They don’t have moving trucks, professional movers, proper moving equipment, and in a lot of cases not much moving experience.

Not All Surprises Are Good

Moving brokers are basically a sales team that book your move and sell it to an actual moving company, so the day of the move you would get a surprise: the mover you chose after long research, to trust and move your home, is a different mover – not the one that you picked! Sometimes the broker does not mange to sell the job because he ‘lowballed’ the estimate and no reputable moving companies are willing to buy the job; in this case you can get stuck with no mover on the day of your move.

Many of the moving brokers are located in a call center somewhere far from your city – Elephant Moving San Antonio is a local San Antonio moving company with an office (and supervisors) close to you that can assist you with any problems or concerns that may come up during your moving process.

Stay Informed

Be aware when you book your move and make sure to ask the company you are moving with if they are an actual moving company. Make sure that the company you booked uses their own crews and trucks to pick up your shipment.
