Only 1 in 5 moving companies in Houston are reputable according to the Greater Houston Mover Association.

Moving can be very stressful even if your mover does a good job. Finding the right company need not be difficlut according to the GHMA.

Michael Hershberger of the GHMA says there are many ways to determine if your mover is reputable.

"You want to make sure you are going with a company with a good Better Business Bureau record. You always want to check the BBB records. You can also talk with the Texas Department of Transportation. TexDot is the governing body for the moving industry in Texas. They have a great website that you can go on and check" Hershberger said.

Advertisements in places like the newspaper and Yellow Pages typically show if a mover is a member of the BBB, or have a TexDot number.

Hershberger also says never hire a mover who only accepts cash as payment.
