Why hire a professional mover
- Bulky items and physical condition: Moving is an uphill task that involves lifting bulky furniture and transporting stacked boxes for several trips. You get tired after a few hours and can easily injure yourself. Items like pianos are large and heavy. They require well-built individuals who work in unison. If one of them misses a step, the result may be horrifying. Your friends may be jacked, but they lack the skills to move such items. Moving companies have employees who have the skills to use winches to move heavy items several storeys high.
- Affordability: Moving companies are obligated by the contract to provide remarkable services. The company charges by the hour and hence uses the time to perform the maximum amount of work possible. They don’t want you to leave a negative review regarding their pace. The company ensures you can continue with your work as they handle the move. The items are handled safely and promptly. The company also consolidates loads to reduce the amount used on a single move. Combining two loads moving in the same direction results in a 10-15% reduced charge. The items are handled securely ensuring no loss occurs. If the unfortunate happens, the items are covered by insurance.
- Insurance: The company provides the release value protection at 60 cents a pound. FMCSA also compels the movers to provide bodily-injury and property-damage insurance at a minimum of $750,000. You can also opt for supplemental insurance in terms of full replacement value. The items are reimbursed according to the value of the damaged/lost item. The lump sum value insurance covers the items according to the value by weight. A load worth $10,000 and weighing 4000 lbs is insured at $2.5 per pound.

- Ensure the company performs a thorough walk-through and issues an estimate that covers any specialized items.
- Take stock of all your moving items and acquire sufficient moving supplies.
- Document the condition of all your items when packing and loading. It is essential especially if you purchased full value replacement insurance.
- Ensure you are 80% ready when the company arrives. The more time they spend, the higher the charge.
- After all the items are packed and loaded, request a copy of the inventory from the movers. It serves as evidence in case of misplaced or destroyed items.
- Keep the mood interesting by playing music or chatting. People easily get bored. This can lower their alertness and result to accidents and sluggishness.
