It is important to undertand your mover’s quotation. If you make an uninformed decision…it could COST you! Read on for some useful moving tips that could save you a few headaches and a lot of money.
Stay home until the very last item is packed. Make a final inspection of the home before the van operator leaves. It is your resposibility to confirm that all of your goods are loaded.
Be on hand when the movers arrive. If you are not able to be present while the movers are there, then designate an authorized person who will be there to take your place and answer any questions the movers may have.
Make sure to mark all of the items you intend to take yourself so that your movers do not load them. Also, mark your boxes with fragile stickers when needed and label them all with your name, a list of their contents and the room they will be delivered to in your new home.
Disassemble your computer system before your move. Back up all of your computer files onto removable media. In transportation there is a risk that exposure to extreme heat or cold could damage internal components. Keep your data safe.
Make sure that you fully understand the details of the estimate provided by your potential mover. If you do not fully understand any charges, guarantees or other details, please ask your move consultant to explain them for you. Moving companies and individual estimators present their services differently, and for specific reasons, always be sure to clarify.
Dates, addresses, phone numbers and contact persons should be given to the moving company at the time you book your move. It is common practice for a mover to require a 10% deposit in order to book you in. Beware of movers that ask for larger deposits. See your estimator for more details.
