Important Information You Should be Aware of When Selecting the Right Mover for Your Relocation Needs
Moving can be a stressful process and finding a practical moving company can be even more stressful. Carmel Movers is dedicated to providing excellence in service, therefore we have put together helpful tips and a Moving comparison chart below to help you find the mover that's perfect for you!
This information will help you compare the quality of moving services. Talk to your moving consultant about this information to help you, your family and your friends make your best moving decisions.
Find out exactly what each moving company includes in its estimate. Some moving companies may include , packing of certain items, free boxes, insurance, etc. while others may charge extra for these additional services. Talk to someone at the company and ask specific questions. In addition, make sure to not only obtain a verbal consent of services provided but to have the services agreed upon in writing. By having a written agreement on services discussed you are safeguarding yourself from hidden costs on move day.
Determine what additional moving services you will need and call the moving companies that you are considering to establish whether they offer these services and what the price is for each service you will require. While some moving
companies may include certain of these services in their base rate, most will likely charge an additional fee for at least some of the following: tape, packing larger items like a television or your bed, packing boxes, disassemble and reassembly of your furniture, carrying items up or down stairs, the distance from the moving van to your residence (both moving in and out), transporting fragile items (pictures, mirrors, etc), storing your items for any amount of time
if you won't be at your destination when the moving van arrives and any other special requests or instructions you may have.
Determine what the moving company is liable for. If they are moving fragile items, precious pieces of art or expensive electronic equipment you may want to purchase additional insurance to safeguard those items. A respectable moving
company will have workman's compensation (this will insure you are not liable if a mover is hurt at your residence), property damage insurance, and standard valuation insurance for your items
Make sure to read all the fine print. Remember that an estimate is just that and your final may cost more than you're expecting. Anticipate all the additional services you'll need so that you're not surprised later.
