the to see if there are complaints against the company. Ask for and call all three references to gauge the mover’s professionalism and reliability. Choose a company with excellent customer service.
Step 3: Know whether an estimate is binding or non-binding.
Ask about rates. Be aware of any conditions that may lead to additional costs, such as moves over a certain mileage or goods over a certain weight. Ask what happens if goods are damaged, and under what conditions is the mover responsible and for how much. With non-binding estimates, the moving cost is based on an estimated hourly rate and/or the estimated weight of the cargo. The risk is that it can be difficult to know how heavy a house’s contents might be or how long they’ll take to move. Beware that there are no guarantees that the final cost won’t exceed the non-binding estimate.
Step 4: Ask for all your options.
Understand how packing options affect the price. For example, if you pack certain goods yourself, can you save some money? Or pack everything yourself with portable containers that are delivered to your home. You pack them, and the company transports them to your new home.
Step 5: Confirm the Crew
If you are moving a long distance, inquire about tracking options so that you can find out where your belongings are. Ask for crew contact information such as name and cell phone in order to contact them if necessary. Be sure they can guarantee a delivery date.
