When the time comes that you need to move into your new house, many people forget to check one of the most important things about moving. And that is, who will be moving you.
The moving industry has many good companies. But there are also a few bad apples, so do your investigation about a mover before it’s too late. Check with co-workers friends, family or ask your realtor for a recommendation on a good moving company. And check to make sure the Mover is licensed. Moving companies must be licensed for either Interstate or intrastate moves.
In New Jersey Movers are required to come to your home to give the estimate. They need to look at what needs to be moved. If a mover wants to do a quote over the telephone based upon what you’re telling them hang up and move to the next one on your list.
Be sure to do your research. Call the Better Business Bureau or search online for positive and negative reviews of the moving company.
Make sure you pack and move your valuables of yourself. Do not trust the Mover to safely move money, jewelry or important documents. Do them yourself.
We recommend before the Mover shows up to begin that you take a lot of pictures of your items. And then when they get unloaded, make sure that they are not damaged. Check with the Mover see what their policy is on items that may possibly get damaged. Typically the movers will compensate you $0.60 per pound of damaged items. You may want to purchase additional coverage.
Schedule your mover early. They are very busy, especially near the end of the month. You may want to think about setting your closing for earlier in the month if possible . That may make it easier to find a good mover.
