||Moving Tips & Guides|
Create a Moving Inventory |
Whether you plan on moving your stuff yourself, or hiring a service, making an inventory of your belongings will be helpful not only to keep track of your stuff, but in the event that anything gets damaged or stolen, you may need to submit an inventory to your homeowner’s insurance company. Make a list with a description, what room it came from, the value and any serial numbers attached to an item in a spreadsheet. Take photos of your important items and keep them with the list and make sure to
Tip movers 5 percent of the cost ... |
Tipping movers is always a little tricky, and you should check if the moving company you hire has any official policy on tipping on their website. Usually tipping 5 percent of the cost of the move is acceptable. If a mover says that he is not allowed to accept tips, don’t force the issue, he is likely telling the truth and forcing him to take a tip could get him in trouble.
Different Types of Moving Services |
The moving company you choose to hire will depend on the type of move you need to complete. Are you moving local, long distance, internationally? Do you need full service, or just moving help? Knowing the answers to these questions will help you get a more accurate estimate for your move.
Types of Moving Vehicles |
Regardless of how far away you are moving and the amount of stuff you bring with you, you are likely to need a truck. You may plan on renting one to drive yourself, or you might decide to hire a moving company to transport your things for you. Either way, there are many different trucks and vans designed for different types of moves. The following is a list of the most common trucks and moving vans.
Common Company Policies |
If you’ll be using their packing services make sure that they do an in-house survey. It will give them a better idea of what you’ll be moving and you can ask them more questions. When loading and unloading they should have all the proper equipment to prevent damage to you items and to prevent injury to themselves and to you.

|They were unprofessional.|
Roadrunner Relocation Services LLC
|The crew was not prepared to bring packing material at all. That is one. And the second thing is they did not bring enough padding material to put in my new house, so they are walking on the carpet and on the floor... so I had to find my own sheets and everything to cover that, because everything was new at my new house, so I don't want to spoil that (number two). And then number three, they damaged some items. For example: The kitchen cabinet - they broke it, one. And then refrigerator handle - they broke it, one. And then a shovel they moved, they broke the handle. So the overall handling was not professional. Neither professional nor careful.|

|Awful Moving Company!|
Americas Best Moving Company
|I wish 0 stars was an option. Stay way from this company and their owners!! This was the worst moving experience I've ever had, and I've moved many times. I moved on New Year's Eve and at 4PM was told by the movers that they weren't able to complete my move because the owners told them to quit early due to the upcoming holiday. I called and talked to Sarah, the owner's wife, who didn't care that this was being sprung on me at the last minute and that I was in a lurch. I tried to explain that I had already turned in the keys to my apartment and had to move out that day and with no advanced notice in the late afternoon of New Year's Eve it was impossible to get another truck. She hung up on me. Her husband, the owner, called back and left a voicemail calling me names and threatening me. I wish I could post the voicemail message online for everyone to hear. That would scare everyone away. They charged me over $700 for an unfinished job. The movers unloaded everything they had already loaded on their truck (which wasn't half of my big furniture) into the garage of my new place and didn't put any furniture back together. We've been working all weekend, with friends' help, to carry everything in from the garage, where it was unloaded (with our help). We had to rent a van from Home Depot ourselves on New Year's Day to finish moving our stuff. This was the absolute worst moving experience ever. Stay away! The guys who did the move were great, but the owners couldn't care less and should be ashamed for treating anyone this way! I'd rather pay a little more to another company and get a finished job and be treated with respect. |
