A Few Valuable Hints to Help Make Your Move a Better Experience

April 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 96

I entered the moving industry over 12 years ago. I have seen both good moves and bad moves. I have learned over the years what to offer customers that I did not years ago. The first a most important thing is Full Coverage Insurance options. Most consumers are mislead from the start of their move. What most consumers don't get told by their moving sales consultant is the following: if moving local (intrastate), the only valuation a mover must provide is .30 per lb. on any damaged or missing item. This means the following: lets take a plasma tv that weighs 86 lbs. The TV gets damaged beyond repair. The moving company only has to offer under local state regulations 86 lbs x .30 which is $ 25.80 in reimbursement for the item.

Some companies may have more ethics than this. others stick strictly to this state rule governed by their local license. Lets take the example of an out of state move (Interstate), Lets use the same example. A plasma tv that weighs 86 lbs. would only pay the following: 86 lbs x .60 per lb. which is $ 51.60. That's correct, the mover gets off pretty easy. Most full coverage insurance plans cost 250.00 - 850.00 depending on the dollar amount you want to actually cover. I cant stress this to consumers enough. Mildly, stuff happens on moves. It does, items shift in transit sometimes. A wiseguy once told me, protect your assets.

The second valuable tool I can recommend is paperwork. Read all your paperwork clearly, and if you don't understand what it is that you are signing, then call the office of the moving company. if they don't want to explain what it is that you are signing, then don't sign it! Make sure at the completion of the load, your driver or foreman leaves you a copy of the bill of lading, inventory sheets, packing list, revised estimate, weight tickets and order for service. These are very important documents that you may need to refer to down the road should an issue arise.

Lastly, understand the general delivery schedule for your shipment. I know you think you are the only one on the truck, but you aren't! if a moving company only moved one shipment at a time on their trucks, then they would not have money for full and ever rising tolls! Please be patient and understand they may have other pick ups and drop offs scheduled with yours on their schedule. Unless you paid extra for space reservation, which is far and few between.

If you do want to learn more about space reservation, please refer to our website to contact a sale representative. http://www.whitegloverelo.com
