Moves are stressful in itself. However if you are not aware of some of its important rules and facts, small mistakes on your part will only add more stress to the move. One such rule to remember about a move is that you have to pay your moving bill before the complete unpacking of your things.
This is because when you hire professional moving services, you hire their associated labor for the move. So you actually have to make a complete payment before the movers unload your things as they have already packed and loaded your things for you.
No riding with movers
Don’t think that movers are day laborers as reputable moving companies don’t hire day laborers. They actually conduct background checks on all their employees before hiring them. So to be on the safer side, it’s better to find out more about their hiring methods before you commit your move to a moving company. Then again, there are some movers who don’t actually have any set standards in their hiring practices.
Some people are of the impression that they can save a trip by riding with their movers to their new location. However according to moving rules, you cannot ride with the moving crew if you are not a moving company employee. Moreover as commercial moving trucks are not insured for carrying travellers, riding with them only gives the message that you don’t actually trust the movers with your things.
Movers cannot move everything
Though moving companies generally have moving insurance, it is not necessary that it provides coverage for everything moved. Some insurance policies are as low as a dollar on the weight of your items or full protection. So make sure you learn about the company’s insurance policy before hiring, and if required, get some additional third party insurance coverage for all your belongings.
Most people are of the notion that movers will move anything. However this is not true as according to law, moving companies are not allowed to transport some things like ammunition, live plants and aerosol cans. So if you have to move any of these things, you have to first get permission from the law before proceeding with the move.
With the help of all this information, you will be able to carry out a complete move without any complications, and with minimal stress and hassles.
