If you're stressed about your move, we've all been there. We know how difficult it can be to find trustworthy and reliable local or interstate furniture removal and back loading specialists. There are many things that you have to plan, purchase, and consider when moving to a new home or facility. It is our goal to share some honest advice about how you should map out your next move.
Research and Review Your Professional Removalists
Just like every other business, the moving industry is loaded with con artists and scammers hoping to make a fool out of innocent people like you. There are actually web sites dedicated to exposing the top of the trash heap. Don't forget to check with your local consumer affairs department and the Better Business Bureau to scope out any professional movers you are considering employing.
Read and Record All Literatures Involved in Your Moving Process
Be certain that you comprehend every term and condition itemized in your contract. Ask all the questions you want; no question is a stupid one. Empower yourself so you know exactly what your money is paying for. Remember that if it isn't written down, there is no way to legally enforce it. If you plan on getting insurance (it's highly recommended), be certain that you know and can fulfill all of your insurance policies.
Should you have to make a claim, you have to know everything there is about remedying whatever situation you might be in. Take pictures, bust out the camcorder, and document as much as possible. During the actual move, don't permit the movers to force you into signing a document that you have not yet inspected and can agree to. Because once the movers are gone, you will have next to no avenues to fix any problems arisen which have not been documented.
Allocate Sufficient Time to Complete Your Move
A majority of homeowners try to make it so their move is on the same day of their real estate closing. Do not emulate the majority! You are only asking for trouble if you do because problems can and will arise. If you do not have enough time allotted for this procedure, you will be very stressed out trying to find enough time to fix the problems while simultaneously proceeding with the moving.
There are times when the professional movers are late or they actually didn't bother coming. We get calls because of this more often that you might think! Besides, you want as clear of a mind as possible if the movers try to squeeze more money out of you. You need a solid head to assess whether or not the extra cost is reasonable. Time basically allows for a whole lot less stress. This may be a lot of effort on your part, but honestly it is worth any and all effort imparted.
By following this advice, you'll be able to avoid scams from not-so-professional movers and you'll also be able to successfully move into your new home with a whole lot less stress.
