Perform a thorough research on the moving companies in your area.The internet never forgets, any moving company intending to be taken seriously must already be online, check out what is said on their services.Close associates can give you an indepth look at the pros and cons of using one moving firm over another.Prepare a list of the moving firms you want to get to know more, contact the sales representative and acquire a few references for work they have recently done and get in touch with the clients to understand the pros and cons of using the firm.
An inventory taking of the client’s stuff by the moving firm must be done.So as not to allocate less resources to the move than what is needful or excess, the weight of the move is accurately measured at this point.A quote for the move is then based on the findings of this exercise.Be present during this estimation rather than leaving it to someone else to ensure accuracy of the stuff is achieved as over estimation will end up with a higher quote.
A binding contract is going to be drawn up at some point before the move.Do not at any given chance, sign a blank contract.The quoted price which should include any extra fees must be indicated on the contract, including the moving date and the delivery date to your new home.
It is vital to consider the valuation and insurance too.Usually moving firms take full liability of items during a move so the insurance is key.Therefore upon receipt in your new home, open the packed boxes to ensure receipt of your stuff intact.Upon receipt of the items and you notice broken or absent stuff, report immediately to have the replacement process begin.Claims are supposed to be done in the allotted window period of 30 days.So if you’re opening boxes a year later and finding broken glasses, claims will not be met and you might be left with a bad taste in the mouth over a certain moving company.
