Why a Moving Company is Important

Posted on September 17, 2016

Whether you’re moving from a shack to a palace or accepting that job promotion in a different city – moving is crazy and stressful. Packing up all your belongings and relocating them is a chore that registers on the top 5 stress list.

Enjoy your happy occasion, reduce you stress and hire a professional moving company to do what they do best.

Full Service packers will manage your moving needs from the beginning to end – local and long distance. Trained movers know the art of packing and wrapping – whether it is your family’s priceless heirlooms or the framed pictures of the family.

A professional moving company will know how to wrap your glass items and protect your furniture from scratches and other damage. The professionals also know how to pack and unpack the moving truck in a way that keeps everything from moving – reducing the risk of damage to your important belongings.

Each moving job is unique with special requirements that professionals take into consideration with creative solutions.

Insurance is required due to the fact that even though all precautions are taken – damages can still occur. Homeowners insurance will cover damages – but at the risk of your insurance rates going up. Insurance can be purchased through the moving company with the basic coverage known as “60 cents a pound.” If something gets broken, it will be weighed and you will get 60 cents a pound.

Insurance by the pound will not pay very well though for your costly heirlooms if they are broken. You might want to consider buying full coverage insurance to receive more protection. Buy at a higher deductible and assume some of the loss risk. The deductible is applicable to the entire shipment, and once met, everything else is at replacement value.

The moving company’s insurance carrier may choose to repair an item instead of replacing it – except in the case of the item being a collectible or unrepairable. Also be sure and list specific valuables on the insurance policy and keep photographs and documentation to backup any claims.

Professional moving companies with full services will assist you in setting up house in your new place – including the reassembling of the large items and the difficult navigation of those awkward pieces.

Even though your moving process has been trusted to a professional moving company – stay involved. Make a list and check it twice to make sure everything runs smoothly.

When it comes to your big move – a professional moving company is IMPORTANT.
