Reputed Moving Company New

8 easy steps to choose the best moving company for your needs

Search for the right ones and not the cheap ones:
While comparing the quotes offered by packers and movers, always choose the height, weight/volume estimate as compared to the lowest quote estimate. A good packer and mover will be more concerned about the weight and dimensions of your shipping goods than quoting the cheapest bid. One tactic inexperienced movers often use is under-estimating the weight/volume of your items and focusing on providing you with the cheapest price. A good mover is always more concerned about your relocation.

Conduct a thorough initial screening: 
It is always advisable to check the previous track record of the service provider you are thinking to contact. Collect some basic info about packers and movers to verify reliability and credibility. Go for their reviews online and try to find genuine reviews from their former clients, as many times these reviews are fictitious and are deliberately sponsored by the company themselves.

Get at least 4 to 5 quotes from trustworthy packers and movers:
 Don’t be hasty to finalize your deal in the first go. Get quotes from at least 4-5 movers. Talk to the company in detail and tell them your expected budget. Ask for a complete break-up of their quotation like Packing, Transportation, Loading, Unloading, Handling, etc.

Ask them for a home visit, estimated time & material used: 
Before finalizing the movers, ask them to first visit your home and look for the shipping requirements details, ask them the estimated time they would take to deliver the items, and if it would fit their shifting schedule. And also don’t forget to ask for the quality of the material that will be used for packing your goods. Fragile items need good packaging.

Ensure There Are No Hidden Costs: 
Make details of your shifting very clear, which should include each and every item ( from small to big ) you need them to shift, all the taxes being charged, the exact pickup location to the destination place. Check if your destination has an elevator and how many laborers they will employ for your shifting. Once you agree on a price, make sure it is put on a contract to avoid extra charges on the day of shifting. 

Do They Offer Insurance? :
No matter how much a company claims about the quality of their packing, sometimes fragile items like glasses may get damaged. So, ask them about assurance. Talk to them about the breakage, which may be caused during the process, and who would be responsible for the occurrence of damage. Finally, ask them if they offer insurance for your goods.

Claim for Breakage of Your Items:
It is very important to note that if you want to make a claim, you need a signed inventory sheet from the company in detail about your entire inventory being shifted and get a properly signed receipt from the movers. In case you notice damage after unpacking, a claim must be filed within nine months of the delivery. It is always best to report the damage as soon as possible. The mover must acknowledge the receipt of your claim within 30 days and must deny or make an offer within 120 days of receipt of your claim.

Ask for Add-on Service: 
Don’t forget to ask for any add-on service which they may be offering for free like free storage for a couple of days, etc.
