There are many considerations and decisions to make during the moving process. The tasks to be complete are many, including choosing a moving date, determining which moving company to use, arranging for utility shut-offs and turn-ons, and much more. Among all the tasks to be completed, hiring a moving company is one of the most important. Any prospective moving company should be able to provide you with a free moving quote to help you make your decision. At Berger Allied Moving & Storage, we have the personnel, equipment, and experience to handle your relocation in a highly efficient manner.
Along with getting moving company quotes, it is also important to ask prospective movers some important questions before deciding on a mover for your relocation. These include:
- Are You Properly Licensed?
Check to make sure the mover is properly licensed. Moving companies that transport household items across state lines also have additional licensing requirements per state and federal law.
- Can You Provide References or a Portfolio of Work?
A reliable moving company will not only provide you with a free moving quote, but also references or a portfolio of work upon request.
- What Is Your Experience With This Type of Move?
A mover with prior experience performing your type of move will be more likely to handle your relocation needs with the necessary safety, efficiency, and speed.
- Is This Your Final Quote or Will You Charge Extra Fees?
Ask for a written, binding estimate for the moving work. If the estimate is non-binding, you may be subject to additional fees and costs that cause the price of the work to go up significantly from the original estimate.
- Do You Have Liability Coverage?
In addition to receiving moving company quotes from prospective movers, make sure they have liability coverage. This type of insurance coverage ensures you will receive reimbursement if your items are damaged or broken during the course of the move. This coverage also protects your financially from any damage that occurs to your home or property.
Movers that transport items across state lines are generally required to have additional liability coverage that includes limited or total value protection. The mover is responsible for providing full replacement reimbursement with complete value protection for items damaged during the course of the move.
