Questions, questions, questions.
There are so many of them to ask a moving company when you are relocating to a new region. There are 10 important questions to raise to the moving companies you interview, with a list of 5 below. The rest of the questions that should be asked are just as important, and the companies answers will decide whether or not you will choose their service.
- How long has the company been in business?
- Do they have a license and insurance?
- How will they protect your property, walls and carpet, when moving furniture in and out?
- When will your belongings arrive at new residence?
- Do they have any moving reviews on their company readily available for you to read?
After deciding on a particular company, remain vigilant in your demand for quality service. Though you may think you are hiring a reputable moving company, there are still tasks you must take to ensure that you are happy with the complete move from your origin to destination.
And just when you think you have asked all the questions you can ask, ask more. Knowledge is power, and the more informed you are the less likely you are to be disappointed in the end. Answers to questions help you avoid common moving mistakes. Without purchasing additional insurance or packing properly, you may find yourself with damaged goods, or even worse, memorable mementos that ca not be replaced.
After all the Questions
After you have asked all the questions, avoided common mistakes and made your choice, it is not over. Overseeing the move out and move in is your responsibility. You can ask all the questions you want, but if you are not present during your move and your belongings become damaged, you may have no one to blame but yourself.
