Steps to be taken before hiring a moving company

By Annphilip Subscribe to RSS | March 19th 2012 | Views:

Whenever we plan to shift from place to other, the challenging task will be to shift household goods.

The relocation can be to nearby location or much farther location within the city or to a different city. Moving a small house or big house, the shifting will be a daunting task.

How can you tackle this problem? Earlier the shifting works has to be done by ourselves, but today so many companies like Moving Boxes are giving this service in a well acceptable way. They are helping us to make our shifting task pretty easy. Now you can relax, as the hectic shifting task will be done by these companies by taking care of all your valuable belongings.

As services offered by packers and movers will vary according to the area, great care should be taken while hiring a company. You might have heard of drastic incidents related to packing and moving companies like damage to your valuable items, irresponsible handling of furniture, asking for unreasonable fees and misplacing your household articles. What are the steps to be followed before choosing a packing and moving company?

Get a price quote – Before choosing a company to shift items, it is better to ask for a price quote. Don’t think that high price will give better service. Each shifting company will have their own rules and procedures. Some companies charge prices based on shifting service and distance covered, while some others charge prices based on number of workers, shifting patterns and time taken. Some companies charge additional rates, if they have to shift some costly and valuable appliances or instruments. Please make sure that your household articles will be safe in the shifting company’s hands for the amount you are agreeing to pay.

Insurance or protection policies – Whether the shifting company offers any insurance? Like insurance for shipping goods from one country to other country, some shifting company’s compensate for damages caused for your belongings. From a personal perspective, this practice will be good. So you can search for those companies that will provide insurance protection to your household articles during the shifting procedure.

Handling procedures – While some companies use labors to move items from house to truck, some others use some machines or certain equipments. You have to make sure that your glass and melamine utensils and valuable glass paintings are loaded on to truck and transported to destination with great care. Careless handling can spoil your precious collection. Compensation or insurance for that will not remove your worries.

General procedures and policies- Before assigning the shifting job to a company, you have to get assure that the movers will pack everything and deliver to your new home on time. What will happen if the household articles don’t reach your home? How the company will deal with issues like mishandling of articles and other dispute process? You have to check whether the company has any department that deals with compliant process. You must ensure that the shifting company will deal with such issues in a blind eyed way.

Nowadays people are depending on shifting companies like Moving Boxes, as they are giving services in various ways. Some of the services offered by shifting companies are local shifting, domestic shifting, and international shifting. They also offer services like packing goods, loading and unloading, transporting goods and insurance. Some little investigation on the moving company you are going to hire can reduce problems. As our household goods are priceless for us, it is our duty to find a good shifting company on whom we can trust on. By adopting a proper planning and research technique, you can easily find a reliable and reputable moving company in your area.
