Precautions when hiring movers
- Do a thorough background check on the movers within Albany before you sign any contracts. Go online and look for their reviews from other clients. Also check if they are registered with the American Moving & Storage Association.
- Make sure that after the first quote you get a more accurate quote by having the mover/s visit and assess your house or office. The final agreed price should be quoted in the contract when you sign off for their services.
- Avoid working with movers who require more than a 25% down payment. It is also advisable to avoid movers who insist on cash payments.
- Upon delivery of items, check to confirm that you have received everything in good shape. In the event of any missing or damaged items, do not sign off until you are compensated for the damages.

What to avoid carrying when using movers
When using the services of a mover, there are some things you are not allowed to move for your safety and that of your property. Many moving companies will provide you with a list of items they don't move or which they move but which will require you to pay an additional fee. These items include:
- Valued possessions: These are items that you have put a high value on and which are significant in your life. These may include but not limited to: passports, art works, jewellery, souvenirs, title deeds, wills and other important things. If possible it is advised to have scanned copies of all your important documents before the move.
- Hazardous items: These are items which could cause high moving risks because they are likely to explode, are corrosive or easily combustible. These items can be given away to your friends or neighbors or you can have them collected by the recyclers in Albany. Some of these items such as nail polish remover, matches or fertilizer may not seem harmful, however it is best to confirm with your mover what they do and do not carry. Other items include: bleach, car batteries, charcoal, paints, cleaning liquid among others.
- Perishable items: Many movers refuse to carry perishable goods especially over long distances because of their potential to go bad quickly or to cause damage to other items. For short distance moves, some movers may allow you to carry some perishable items but only if they are well packed. For long distance moves, you may dispose off all perishables or share them out to friends and family.
