Relocating? Five Questions to Ask Your Mover
By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group
Who's going to be my main contact point during my move?
You'll want to be sure you have the contact details for your customer service coordinator so you can check in as well as let them know if there are any changes on your end. It is also smart to ask for the driver's contact number, just in case you need to get in touch with them directly regarding loading or delivery specifics. Finally, be sure and ask for an afterhours contact in the event that something unexpected happens after 5pm or over the weekend and you must speak to someone right away.
Will there be additional charges beyond the written estimate?
Most moving companies will provide you with an itemized written quote of the charges you will incur. Make sure to read through this document thoroughly and determine what is included and what is not. For example, certain movers don't include empty carton pickup within their pricing, which would result in additional fees. If there's something on the moving estimate that you don't fully grasp, ask your relocation consultant or customer service coordinator for clarification.
When can I expect my possessions to be delivered?
The very last thing you want to do is wait for days or perhaps weeks for your items to arrive at your new home. Your moving company should have the ability to provide you with a good plan of when your belongings will arrive. Typically a delivery window is available until your things are loaded and then, the driver should be able to provide a more exact delivery date. You will also want to ask about how they will handle things in the event that they're going to be late because of unforeseen circumstances.
Will there be anything which cannot be shipped with your moving company?
Generally, relocating your house means moving your home furnishings, personal things, garments, along with other stuff for the house. These should never be a problem. Having said that, there are a few items, for example flammable or explosive materials, which cannot go on the moving truck. And there are other belongings that it may well be wise to self-transport, including cash, jewelry, collectibles, art, and other valuable things.
What protections do you have in place due to COVID-19?
You want to do everything that you can to guard your family's health and well-being. The last thing you need is a lax crew interacting with your family and possessions. Be sure that your mover and crew are following adequate protocols, wearing face masks, washing hands, and also social distancing.
