Ask your movers on a moving day these questions
Besides talking to your movers and asking them for advice, there is a simple tip that will help you pack and move with ease. Before packing and doing other moving tasks, download moving apps that will save your sanity and always have your moving checklist with you.
As we said before, moving is stressful and because of that, people often forget to do even the most important items.
#1 Ask the driver for a phone number
Anything can happen during transportation, so it will be beneficial to have a phone number of a moving truck driver. Maybe they cannot find your new address, or they are late, etc. By having contact info, you will always know where they are at that moment. And of course, if something goes wrong, they will call you. Verify the company’s info before hiring movers, and check their contact information.
#2 What is the time of arrival
When your items will be at your new address? Of course, you will know exactly when a moving company will be there to pick up your household items. But, after loading all those moving boxes into a moving van, ask them how much time will they need to come to your new home. Especially if you are moving to a different city or state.
#3 Are there any additional fees
If you have a lot of stairs in your home, or special items to move, for example, it is an additional cost. There are ways to organize your household for relocation which also include cleaning up the house. It is important to have enough space to move furniture around. Clear a hallway, pathway in front of the house, etc. When the movers come, ask them if there will be some extra costs. This way you will be prepared for the final bill.
#4 How much time you have for complaints
After moving and unpacking, something may be damaged or broken, unfortunately. What is the company’s policy in this situation and how much time do you have to complain. Usually, it is about 2 weeks. But, just in case, ask your movers on a moving day how much time do you exactly have. Immediately after moving, make sure everything is there and in one piece.
