Four Things To Review In Your Moving Contact


If you have hired movers for your relocation, then you want to be sure that you review the contract with the company before signing and moving forward with your move. Not reviewing your contract can cost you both money and time. Here are four things that you should review to be sure that you are prepared:

  1. Your Information: The address that you are moving from and your new address should all be correct, as well as your phone number, name, and other information that you have provided to the company. If the addresses are wrong, it can waste time because the company may not be able to find you or your new home once they are on the road with your things. You also want to be sure that the information is correct in the case that you need to file a claim. The process of filing may be slower if information needs to be changed. 
  2. The Timeline: Your moving company will write down an estimated time of arrival that you should be aware of in the case that you are moving a long distance. If you are going to arrive to your new home sooner than the moving company, then be sure that you have all items packed with you that you will need right away. You will also want to double check the date and time that the moving company will be arriving to pack up your items. 
  3. Additional Charges: When you receive an estimate from a moving company, the estimate can possibly change because of additional charges. These additional charges can be applied for things, such as heavier furniture items that need to be moved, as well as fragile antique items. You may even have additional charges because of parking situations. For example, if you are moving from an apartment and the moving company has to park far away from your actual unit, you can be charged for additional labor services. 
  4. Liability Limits: Finally, be sure that you check on the liability limits with the moving company's insurance. You want to be sure that your more expensive items will be covered under this policy in the case of damage. If not, then you will want to pack these expensive or antique items with you instead of with the moving company. You also want to be sure that injuries are covered under the moving company's policy so you are not responsible for them. 

By knowing what to check on a moving company's contract, you can be sure that you save both money and time. Contact a local moving company, like SC Moving, to get started.

Streamlining Your Next Move

After my boss told me that I would probably be moving a lot for work, I realized we needed to get a little more organized. Instead of gathering produce boxes and hoping for the best, we started analyzing our mistakes and successes of previous relocations. We realized that we usually got hung up on the packing, which is why we asked my employer to pay for a professional service. Our next relocation was a breeze. This blog is all about identifying storage problems so that you can avoid hassles, delays, and expensive mistakes that could destroy your overall budget.
