Choosing A Mover: How To Ensure Your Possessions Are In Safe Hands

Moving companies are a boon to people needing to relocate far away from their homes. If you have a pick-up truck or a van, a lot of the work can be handled yourself. However, the hassle of packing, loading/unloading and transporting belongings can be a bit much amidst the long to-do list.

Good movers ensure that goods are transported with minimal risk of damage. They have experience in helping move not only residences but offices too. Sensitive equipment, expensive musical instruments and similar damage-prone items are carefully packed, shipped and unloaded come arrival time.

The number of moving services is high so filtering competent professionals is important since the wrong choice can see belongings lost or arriving damaged. Here's how you can make the right decision when searching for movers.

• Visit the websites of organizations that contain huge databases of names along with recommendations and complaints. If you know someone who's had to use a service recently, all the better.

• A mover should have a Department of Transportation or DOT number which shows it's registered. Not only does this legitimize a company but it helps when running checks in case something goes wrong.

• A mover should agree to conduct an on-site inspection of your belongings prior to giving an estimate. It shouldn't rely on your word because it's impossible to gauge how much packing and moving will cost without a first-hand look.

• You should be given a booklet detailing your rights and responsibilities when making an interstate move. It's required by federal law and includes such helpful information as estimating charges, resolving disputes etc. Any company that hesitates or states otherwise should be ignored in favor of others.

• While movers must be insured and bonded, know that the policy doesn't extend to all goods. Any company that claims otherwise should be viewed at with suspicion.

• The state of the company's office says a lot about how seriously it takes work. A shabby, virtually empty space with no employees, no company-owned and operated moving vans or worse, no office, should see you walk away as fast as you can. Moving is a business and like all businesses there should be a central location from where operations are conducted.

• The professionalism of employees matters a great deal and you can make an easy guess by gauging how they answer calls, how they respond to questions, whether they're informative etc. Information and proof of licensing and insurance must be provided upon request as well as any other information pertaining to moving.

• Interview at least three or four companies before settling. Have them draw up estimates along with discounts and additional charges.

• Cheap doesn't mean a good deal. It can mean poor service and no guarantee that your belongings will arrive in one piece. Rather, choose a company that prices its service mid-range. There's a better chance of having your goods transported safely and on time.

• Opt for a local mover for an intrastate move and a national one for an interstate relocation. Apply the same judiciousness when choosing either one because it's easy to lower standards with local movers especially if they're acquaintances and you don't want to risk offending them.

• Throw as many questions as you have to when interviewing movers. Trusted ones will be only too happy to answer them. They're also eager to provide proof of their reputation and know that you want your fears allayed.
