If you don’t have a credit card, check if the company accepts your preferred mode of payment. A good moving company should be flexible enough to allow multiple methods of payment
Step 5 – Final Delivery
The final day is significant as this marks the completion of your relocation. By now you know whether the company met your expectations or not. Did you remember to put all your items in a list? Now it’s the time to use the list. When loading and unpacking your items, confirm that all your things are there, as they appear on your list. If everything is in the right condition, sign the delivery documents and pay your last milestone “WELCOME HOME.”
