If you’re planning a move, odds are you have come across information on both movers and brokers in your research. As your trusted household movers serving Philadelphia and central New Jersey, we’re here to help clear up any confusion, so you know exactly who to contact for your upcoming relocation needs.

When it comes to choosing between movers and brokers, there actually isn’t really a decision to make. In most cases, you’re going to want a full-service moving team on your side to handle your relocation. Here’s what you need to know about the two terms.

Movers vs. Brokers

The main difference between mover and brokers is that mover are movers while brokers are more like lead generators. Brokers won’t usually have hands-on experience in the moving industry. However, due to their marketing skills, they know how to reach people who are looking for moving professionals.

These brokers will then look for local movers and sell your information to them, so you get connected with a mover in the end, but they make a profit for being the one to make it happen. It’s important to note that there are legitimate professionals in this business, but it can be very hard to tell the difference, which makes it a popular industry for scams and fraudulent behavior. 

To summarize:

  • Movers: The professionals that will help you with your move. They typically offer packing, moving, storage, and additional services.
  • Brokers: The middlemen that will sell your information to the professionals that will help you with your move.
