Why use moving companies?
- Insurance: A moving company has all items insured in the unlikely event of an accident. The company has several types of insurance available to the customer. The items can be covered under alternate liability insurance or full value replacement insurance. Alternate liability reimburses items at $0.60 a pound. If a home theatre worth $200 and weighing 50 pounds is damaged, the owner is refunded $30 dollars. This move is preferred for heavy and cheap furniture. High-value items should also be covered under the full value replacement insurance.
- Mechanization: Movers have forklifts that handle very heavy items. If you don’t want your L-couch disassembled, movers can move it using a forklift. They also have vacuum lifting machines that deal with very heavy and delicate items. Items such as sculptures and gun safes are moved using such machinery. Movers have digitized the communication system which ensures information is relayed in seconds. The company vehicles have air cushioned carriers to protect items being damaged due to bumpy roads or other boxes.
- Valuable items: If you have an irreplaceable heirloom, movers are best equipped to handle it. They have the machinery and training to safely move the items. They can move delicate items like glassware with ease. The items are wrapped in bubble wrap and packed amongst soft fabric.

A moving company has the experience to set things in motion and ensure they follow the set schedule. The employees prepare months ahead and conduct a walk-through. This ensures they know what to expect and how to deal with it.
Each employee is assigned a role and a specific time set. This establishes order, while eliminating confusion and delays.
Find the best movers in Addison with these tips

It is easier to know which company has the experience and equipment to handle your move. All members are FMCSA compliant and have an IDOT number.
A reliable moving company should have been assessed and rated by BBB. A company with remarkable services and proper complaints resolution is rated A and above. Shun companies with poor or no ratings.
Beware of blank and incomplete contracts. They can be used to insert dubious clauses which increase costs.
Make your move successful with these simple tips
Hire a reliable mover that is experienced with your type of move. Confirm with reputable associations like BBB. They have all the records of the company since it began operations.
Make a budget that is all-inclusive. It should include common items, specialized items and the number of items. Underestimating your budget may lead to increased costs as the move progresses.
Create a moving schedule three months in advance. The adequate time allows flexibility. Other activities may conflict your moving schedule and hence you can reassign them.
Separate personal items like documents and pack them in clear plastic box. You can also make electronic copies or photocopies.
Visit the new area before moving in. This makes your transition easier. Know the neighbors, amenities, and rules.
Keep your energy levels high. Ask friends to help with exhaustive tasks and take frequent short breaks.
