Why do reviews matter?
Relocation is a long and exhausting process. Nobody will blame you for wanting it to be over as soon as possible. But writing a review for the people who helped you along the way is still absolutely worth time and effort, especially when it’s not very hard to do. Think back to how you found Undergrads Moving SC when looking for movers – did you not rely on other people’s suggestions, recommendations, and reviews?

Writing a moving review is a way to reward good movers
Moving isn’t easy so any help that you get with the process is usually welcome. If that help came from Clemson movers, then a moving review is a great way to thank them for a job well done. So if your movers did a good job and you were happy with their services, take the time to post a comment on their website, give them a five-star rating on Google, add a review to their profile on social media or even a specialty review website. Your movers will certainly be happy to know what a difference they made in your relocation. But it goes beyond mere satisfaction and pride in one’s work.
Most people rely on reviews when choosing a business to trust. This includes choosing the movers for their upcoming relocation. By leaving a positive review for your movers you can increase their business and draw in new customers for them. This is the best possible way to reward your movers for all the help they’ve given you.
…or punish bad ones
Of course, there’s always the flip side of the coin: you may not actually be happy with the service you got from your movers. Maybe one of the employees was rude. Maybe your movers all arrived late. Or maybe they mishandled some of your things, broke something you cared about or damaged your floors. If you’re truly unlucky, you may even have come across some scammers. Whatever the reason for your dissatisfaction, writing a moving review can be your way of punishing the company that caused you problems!
If you were truly dissatisfied with your movers, then make sure to let them (and everyone considering hiring them) know about it. Post your review to as many platforms as you can so that everyone reading about the company on BBB, Yelp, Facebook or anywhere else knows what they’re getting themselves into and turns to someone else instead. If, on the other hand, there were only certain aspects of the service you didn’t like, then specify what it was that could’ve gone better. A moving company that truly cares will work on improving by fixing what went wrong in your relocation! Some may even offer you a discount or partial refund to keep you as a satisfied customer. So even a bad review may end up being good for both you and your movers.
Writing a moving review will help others find the right movers for their relocation
As you certainly know from personal experience, moving reviews can be a major factor in choosing movers. So write a review for the sake of everyone else looking for the best Columbia movers because you never know when your opinion will make a difference! Write about all the things your movers did right. Write about all the things they did wrong. Everything that you think is important, everything that you would want to know if you were still in the market for movers, everything that people might not learn from just looking at the movers’ website – put it in a review and share it! It’ll help so many others prepare and make the right choices for their relocations.
It can be helpful for you personally to write a review
So far, it’s all been about altruism. And don’t get us wrong: Undergrads firmly believe in paying it forward! But sometimes, you just want to do things for yourself. Believe it or not, a moving review can be one of those things. It can be a way for you to talk about your relocation to an audience that cares to listen. You can complain about the things that went wrong. Or you can be excited and happy about all the things that went right. A moving review doesn’t just have to be strictly about the moving services you used – it’s also about the experience.
How to write a good moving review
Writing a moving review isn’t very hard. Just be honest about the experience you had. Share as many details as you feel comfortable and be realistic – don’t focus too much on just the positives or just the negatives, it’s the whole package that counts. The one thing you do want to keep in mind is grammar: no one will take you seriously if you make a lot of mistakes or spelling errors. So read through your review before posting it to make sure that it’s clear, correct and makes sense!
