Moving can be very tiring. So why not get the professional movers to make the process easier? When selecting an efficient, reliable company, here are a few questions you should ask.
1. Is Your Company Properly Licensed?
All professional moving companies should have a license – local or interstate – issued in the USA. To separate the genuine ones from those that may be scammers, make sure you ask this pertinent question. Also, ask them to see their number or documentation.
2. What Liability Coverage Do You Provide?
Feel free to ask if they are liable for the replacement of the entire value of lost or damaged goods, or if only for a percentage. Liability Coverage usually varies by company, so it would be good to know how covered your items are.
3. Are Your Employees Properly Trained to Handle Specific Moves?
Your movers should have the skills to deal with unusual circumstances. For example, they may need to move your items up steep stairs and narrow stairwells. Your new location may lack an elevator or have narrow doorways. So do your research about the level of training the movers receive to ensure your items are well taken care of.
4. Do You Operate on Weekends and Public Holidays?
While weekdays may be cheaper than weekends, you may have to take a day off from work to assist with the move. You may prefer the convenience of having them come on the weekend or on a public holiday. Find out if they offer reduced prices on those days.
5. Do You Offer Discounts or Promotions?
Some companies offer discounts to students and senior citizens. These may include free delivery from their warehouse to your new residence, free boxes, and one-month free storage or container rental.
