Moving Tips – Find a Reputable Mover
1. Do your due diligence: Check the moving company’s history and read the customer testimonials. Every state government maintains a database of moving company complaints. Make sure that the mover is also “ProMover” certified, meaning that they have a vetted dispute process in place, you can check that here: https://www.protectyourmove.gov. This site allows you to make sure they have the necessary licensing as well.
2. Get a written estimate: This way you can guarantee the price you first discussed. Especially if moving from state-to-state, you should request a “binding estimate,” which is the absolute maximum you will pay for a company’s moving services.
3. Purchase the optional insurance: Your property is not insured unless you buy the moving company’s insurance by law. This is a great way to cover the replacement value should items go missing or get destroyed.
4. Plan in advance: This will help you come to an agreement with your movers and have the necessary time to prepare for and book a moving date(s).
Overall, moving can be a difficult, time consuming process. By ensuring that your mover is reputable, it will make your moving experience much smoother. For other moving tips and specific packing instructions visit: All Jersey Moving Tips.
