Movers Companies: How to Choose a Good One

Oct 8th 2015 at 2:19 AM

Pay attention to red flags!

Some mover companies in Fort McMurray use brokers or subcontractors in order to drum up business. If you do not want to be fooled – simply ask movers companies to provide you with this information because according to the federal law they are obliged to do so.

Other red flags?

No bricks and mortar: in the era of the Internet you cannot trust even to your eyes, meaning do not trust everything you see on a web-site of any movers company. If you see an address on a web-site – double check its existence manually to make sure that those movers companies that you have chose do physically exist in Fort McMurray.

Phone quotes and super-cheap estimates: Never hire those movers companies who provide you with the lowest price for an estimate! As a rule, theses are either tricks where later on you will have to pay tons of extras or simply service providers who cannot perform it in the right way.

Demands for cash: Reputable movers companies in Fort McMurray will never demand upfront payments. In the matter of fact, under the 110% rule for non-binding estimates, you cannot be required or, moreover, forced to pay interstate movers companies more than the original estimate which adds 10% at the time of delivery.

Know your rights: Movers companies are obliged to provide you with a booklet explaining your rights and responsibilities in the process of a move. Such handbook should be given to you at the time of your estimate. In case your movers did not provide you with one, it is a sign to over think the idea of hiring them.

Stay involved, but not too much

According to the research among the people in Fort McMurray, most of them think that paying to the movers companies to pack their belongings is overpaying, this is why they would prefer to take supermarket boxes and do it themselves. According to the specialists, that budget-saving tactic might on the contrary wind up being a pricey mistake. This happens because as a rule, movers companies do not accept liability for items that they did not pack. In case you have some expensive or fragile goods like heirloom china, then the best idea is to leave this issue to the professionals.

At the same time, all Fort McMurray movers companies insist on the fact that expensive things like money or jeweler and dear things like photographs or documents should travel with you, do not pack them because you simply cannot risk losing them.

When your things are being packed for you, you should not disappear. Do not “help” professionals to do their job, but anyway you need to see what is going into boxes. Make sure that all the items are listed on an inventory.
