The big day is quickly approaching, and your move is almost here. Have you found a mover yet? For those who are thinking about taking on this task on their own, you may want to reconsider and utilize a moving company. A moving company is going to provide you with a move that is less stressful and overall easier. However, you cannot choose just any moving company that you find in your vicinity.
We have compiled a few tips and questions that you are going to want to ask those moving companies that you are interested in using so that you are getting the best deal possible!
Questions to Ask a Moving Company
Here are a few questions that you are going to want to ask potential moving companies:
- Does the quote cover everything or could there be extra financial surprises at the end of the move?
- What terms do you have for moving my belongings?
- What form of payment do you accept?
- Do you offer a guarantee on your services, such as ensuring the items arrive on time, not broken and the like?
- Will my items have to be transferred to another truck in order to get them to their final destination?
- Do you offer insurance on my belongings and is this an extra fee or a part of the quote?
- What is your process for filing a claim if something were to be broken?
Tips to Keep in Mind when Looking for a Moving Company
Now that you realize what important questions you should be asking a moving company, now you need to focus on a few tips that can make your search easier.
- Talk directly to the moving company, do not use a broker. A broker cannot give you an exact rate like the moving company can.
- Consider moving insurance if you have a lot of items that are valuable and you believe that the moving company insurance is not going to be enough.
- Keep a running inventory of all those items that you are packing and moving, so that you always have a way to prove that items were gone or damaged.
