Finding a Moving Company

Finding a moving company

Moving a home is one of the most stressful moments in anyone’s life as it involves not only the stress of relocation but also the added tension and anxiety of having handed over your prized possessions to the officer of a moving company. Once you have entrusted to a moving company, there is no looking back and if something happens in transit to even a single piece of your belongings, you lose a lot in spite of any compensation that is offered, because there are certainly some prized possessions that money cannot buy again.

How do you ensure that the moving company you have chosen is the right one? How exactly do you choose a reliable moving company? Most companies who specialize in relocation jobs have websites which have all details about their services, service history, destinations they will move to, roughly how much it will cost as well as their office locations and contact persons. Hence internet is a great place to get background information about any company and to start compiling a list of potential companies that you would want to choose from. Once this is done, contact them and ask for quotes, specifying your requirements. Always scan the quotes for conditions that are normally listed in the quotation. If any condition looks out of place, like not taking responsibility for items that are being moved, get that company out of your list. Also, look for companies who quote too low, as they are only concerned with the money and do not guarantee quality service. Ask for feedback from clients who have used these companies. Also, cross check with friends or relatives who have experience in relocation about the general precautions that need to be taken.

There are some signs that suggest that a company is not reliable. Always look for these signs before you make the choice. If the mover does not offer or agree to an on-site inspection of your household goods and does not give an estimate over the phone or email, there is something wrong. Also, if the company demands a deposit, this is also not right. Always check for the license of the company and insurance related to the relocation. Make sure that the company signs an agreement with you and gives you copies of relevan documents as stipulated by the authorities. If not, do not commit. If the offices and warehouse are in poor condition or nonexistent, this is also a source for worry. At last, on moving day, if a rental truck arrives rather than a company-owned fleet truck, back out immediately, as there is no guarantee for your items reaching the destination.
