Why We Developed The Rating System

In 2020, Great Guys Moving set out on a mission to rank the best moving companies in each city. Our goal was simple; we wanted to help customers find the most trusted moving companies in their city. We believe these highly ranked companies deserve to get rewarded with more customers. Moving is one of life’s most stressful experiences and having a reliable and trustworthy moving company by your side can make all the difference.

The moving industry is competitive and many popular platforms that help consumers find a moving company offer elevated placement in exchange for payment. At Great Guys Moving, you can’t buy your way to the top of our results. We provide objective and quantifiable rankings of the best moving companies so you can have an easier moving day experience.

How Does The Rating System Work

The algorithm is complex, but the output is simple. Our calculations provide a score that we use to rank each company in a specific city. We then translate the score into a helpful adjective rating system as follows:




Very Good


Note: companies with a score below “Good” can still appear on the site, but they will NOT have a listed adjective, or corresponding color.

How Does The Ranking Algorithm Work

It’s a proprietary method we developed, so we can’t share everything, but we can give you a peek. Our team of data scientists tested, tweaked, and poured over millions of data points to get it right. We feed our training algorithms as much data as we possibly can from publicly available sources of data. This data can come from dozens of different sources including a company’s website, 3rd-party websites, federal licensing data, and general business information. We compare each company against others in the moving industry and assign every company a specific score. We then use this score to determine how each company ranks against the others and distribute the scores across helpful adjectives to better understand the meaning behind the scoring system.
