When you allow the moving company to examine moving inventory, you are sure to get a more accurate moving quote. The most overlooked places when calculating moving inventory include storage spaces in drawers, garages, cupboards, bookcases, etc. It is important to understand that the cost of moving is often determined by the distance, weight, and size of moving inventory among other variables. Therefore it is important to ensure all moving inventory is captured to the letter.
By the same token, it is important that the estimator asks as many questions as they will once you schedule a walk-through with them. It it’s important to let the estimator know of any items that you may not be planning to move into your new home to avoid having them calculated and increasing your moving cost. Another tip that most customers have come to value when it comes to dealing with moving company is paying on delivery. The good news is most established companies will accept any payment terms as long as everything is moving smoothly. Even better is if you decide to pay using credit card just to protect yourself against cases of fraud or risk having an unscrupulous mover disappear with all cash even before the job is complete.
You must work with a registered moving company; this can never be emphasized enough. Luckily, verifying that a moving company is genuine, registered and licensed doesn’t take so much of your time and effort today. You can even take it a step further and check for online reviews from such sites as the Better Business Bureau.
