Why Hire a Moving Company: An Interview with Lori Bos of Bos Moving & Service Inc.

By Lori Bos

Please describe a little bit about your company and its foundation.

Bos Moving & Service, Inc. is a family owned and operated company that has been serving the area since 1982. In 1982 we started with one truck which was operated by Mark Bos himself. We have now grown to a fleet of eight trucks. We pride ourselves on providing professional, experienced service at a reasonable rate while working to take the stress out of the process at the same time. Both Mark and I are actively involved in the day-to-day operations of Bos Moving & Service, Inc. It is very important to us that the service aspect of our business is upheld. The majority of our business comes from referrals from past customers. That to us speaks for itself. We currently have an "A" rating on Angie's List. In January we were awarded their "Super Service Award" for 2013. We also have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

What are some of the various moving services you offer?

We provide full moving services, both residential and commercial. We will handle moves of any size; from one item up to a fully furnished home, apartment, office, warehouse, etc. We are experienced in piano and organ moving as well. We will load or unload your rental truck or POD and also provide in-house moving. We offer a full packing service along with a full line of packing supplies.

What are some of the advantages that come along with hiring a moving company?

When you hire a moving company, you are leaving the heavy lifting to the experts. Our movers are experienced at handling all types of furniture; from your heaviest furniture to your most delicate possessions. We are experienced at how a truck should be loaded and how your items are protected while in transit. Our trucks are equipped with all of the necessary equipment to make for safe transport of your items.

Because moving is an investment in time and money involving your personal possessions, you should use care in selecting a qualified mover. While price is an important consideration when choosing a mover, quality of service and company reputation should share in your final decision. Cheapest is not always best when dealing with your prized possessions.

Is it sometimes more affordable to utilize the services of a moving company?

While it may seem like you have just spent all of your money on your new home and all of the expenses that come along with it, hiring a mover is a great investment. You want to put your prized possessions in the hands of experts, not your friends and family. There is always the risk of injury, damage to your items, not to mention the fact that we will complete the process much more quickly for you. We have had many customers that have hired us after their previous "do it yourself" move. They all say what a great investment it was. They are always in awe of how quickly the move went with the professionals.

Will I have insurance on all my belongings?

Bos Moving & Service, Inc. is fully insured for your protection. We provide cargo insurance for your items while in our possession. We also provide liability insurance that covers the interiors of both of your homes along with workman's compensation insurance. We are licensed by the Michigan Public Service Commission (#L-22006) and adhere to all of their regulations.

How does hiring a moving company help me save time?

Moving is rated as one of the top three most stressful things to do in life. If you hire a professional, you are taking a lot of that worry off the table right from the get go. Our movers are all experienced and work full-time with us. Many of our guys have been with us for fifteen years or more.

What is the best way for people to get in contact with you?

You can call our office Monday through Friday 9:00 A.M.-5:00 P.M. and on Saturdays from 9:00 A.M.-1:00 P.M. Nettie, our office manager, will be happy to go over the details of your move and give you our rates. She can even schedule a free, in-home estimate with Mark. We can be reached at 248-360-6644 or 800-706-6644. You can also email us at bosmoving@aol.com and we invite you to visit our website at www.bosmove.com.
