How to find the best mover in Albert Lea
Research on moving companies in your locality. You can ask for recommendations from family members, friends and coworkers. You can trust the source but you need to further probe the company’s competence.
Use the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association site to verify the company’s license and insurance. All state to state moving companies must have a household items moving license and updated insurance information. The company should also have a satisfactory safety rating which should be higher than the national average safety rating.
Use the Better Business Bureau to validate the company’s service record. Check how previous customers rate the company. This can help you understand the operations of a moving company. They should also have resolved all consumer complaints in a satisfactory manner. Reliable moving companies do not take chances with customer satisfaction. The organization also comes in handy when resolving serious disputes since they act as the mediator.
- Any company asking for a deposit of more than 20% the total cost of moving.
- A company which is hesitant in performing the in-house survey.
- Any contract that is incomplete or has blank papers.
- A company that claims they have insurance for all your items.
- Any company without a permanent physical address.
Tips for a stress free move
- Move during winter or spring. It’s more affordable and swift since there are fewer people moving. Plan the move at least three months in advance.
- Create a to-do list which helps you plan your time by breaking down moving tasks. This helps to avoid a conflicting schedule. The earlier you acquire moving supplies and enlist friends to help, the less wok you will have on moving day.
- Pack items in order of urgency. Begin with rarely used items as you progress to everyday items. Get rid of items you don’t need to move with. Some clothes aren’t suited to the new climate or they may be outdated.
- Wrap delicate items with bubble wrap and pack glassware amongst anti-static peanut or clothes. Use padded boxes and tape them on the outside since the road will be bumpy. Load heavy items first and finish with light ones on top.
- After all items have been loaded, move through the house and confirm no item has been left behind. Get a copy of the movers’ inventory and say your goodbyes.
