Why you need a professional mover
- Saves time: Moving takes time especially when packing and transporting your items. You may have adequate friends to help with your move, but since they lack experience and equipment expect a slow work rate. Professional movers have the experience, trained personnel and advanced equipment which reduce the amount of time used moving. They can pack faster, safer and transport the items in modified vehicles which move for hundreds of miles without breaking down.
- Insurance: Moving a large number of items and assembling all required moving resources is risky. You need to cover the move to avoid heavy losses in case the items get damaged or someone injures themselves. Moving companies have the basic cargo insurance which covers all items at 60 cents a pound. They also cover the personnel and building under the bodily-injury and property-damage insurance. You can also buy supplemental insurance for high-value items. Confirm the company’s insurance information at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association.
- Professional services: Moving companies have a bill of lading that binds the agreement between the customer and the mover. It explains how they price moves and the type of move the customer is going to receive. They also note the place where the items are being sourced and where they are being moved. They use official communication and proper language. In case of any misunderstanding, they resolve the issue promptly.
