New London is a traditional seaport city that is considered the port of entry for the Northeast of the country. New london was considered one of the biggest and wealthiest whaling ports in the early 19th century and the architecture of the city clearly reflects that influence. The waters outside of New London were so deep that during the Revolutionary War, New London became the base for American naval operations.
Located at the mouth of the Thames River, the city began a transformation out of the whaling industry and into the shipping and manufacturing sector. The city is also home to the United States Coast Guard Academy, Mitchell College, and Connecticut College which brings in students from all over the world.
How to Find the Right New London Mover
The first thing prospective customers should do while trying to decide which residential moving company to hire is make a list of questions. Moving can be stressful, however, individuals who are looking for professional moving services should feel confident about asking for references and getting a clear understanding of what services the moving company provides prior to signing any paperwork. For example, do the New London residential movers provide packing and unpacking services? Are storage facilities available? Does the company guarantee its work? Are the employees licensed and insured? If staff members cannot answer these and similar questions and if there is nothing in writing to confirm their answers, then it would be in the prospective client's best interest to take his/her business elsewhere to avoid wasting money and time.
Granted, word-of-mouth advertising can be beneficial to customers and business owners. However, prospective customers will find that they can make more informed decisions about a company and the services it provides by finding out what its Better Business Bureau rating is. While there is no such thing as a perfect business, companies that have multiple complaints and/or unresolved complaints should be avoided. While this accreditation is not mandatory, according to the Better Business Bureau, it will help put customers at ease by showing them that the business has met all of the standards set forth by the BBB.
