Relocating? Five Questions to Ask Your Mover
By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group
Who will be my main contact point during my move?
It is advisable to make certain you have the contact details for your customer service coordinator in order to check in and also inform them should there be any modifications on your end. It's also a good idea to get the driver's contact number, if you happen to need to make contact with them directly concerning loading or delivery particulars. Finally, be certain and ask for an afterhours contact in case something unanticipated arises after 5pm or on the weekend and you really need to speak to someone right away.
What are the extra expenses over the written quote?
Most moving companies will provide you with an itemized written quote of all the charges you will incur. Make sure you read through this document thoroughly and determine what is included and what is not. For example, a number of movers do not include empty carton pickup in their pricing, which may result in additional charges. If there's something on the moving estimate that you do not fully grasp, ask your relocation consultant or customer service coordinator for clarification.
When can I expect my belongings to be delivered?
The last thing you want to do is wait for days or perhaps weeks for your things to arrive at your new home. Your moving company should be able to provide you with a good plan of when your belongings may arrive. Usually a delivery window is available until your things are loaded after which, the driver should be able to supply a more accurate delivery date. You will also want to find out how they will manage details in the event that they'll be delayed because of unplanned situations.
Is there anything which cannot be shipped with your moving company?
Typically, moving your house means moving your furniture, personal possessions, clothing, and other stuff for the house. These should not be an issue. However, there are some things, including flammable or explosive materials, that cannot go on the moving truck. And there are other items that it might be advisable to self-transport, including cash, jewelry, collectibles, artwork, and other valuable items.
What protections do you have set due to COVID-19?
You want to do everything that you can to safeguard your family's health and well-being. The last thing you need is a lax team interacting with your family and possessions. Be sure that your mover and workers are following adequate protocols, wearing face masks, washing hands, and also social distancing.
