When looking for moving companies near me I have found it beneficial in doing the following. First please make sure the moving companies near me always have a least a general liability policy. This is the insurance used to repair damages done to either floors or walls. If the moving companies near me don’t have this insurance please look for another mover. Secondly when selecting moving companies near me, I always like to ask if they have the proper equipment to move residential furniture or commercial furniture. Professional residential movers or commercial movers usually have the necessary equipment required to perform moving. Two-wheel truck dollies which are great for moving boxes or contents. Four-wheel dollies are great for moving heavier furniture like desk or buffets. Moving companies near me will also have the necessary stretch wrap and tape needed to properly prep and pack your furniture.
Moving companies near me also don’t have to worry about weighing the load they are transporting for you. Nine out of ten time moving companies that perform over the interstate moves have to stop at weight stations to weigh their load. Guess what, if the load is more than what the moving company estimated the client will usually have to pay double for their move. Movers near me usually can pack and load around nine thousand pounds of furniture in a moving truck at one time. Moving companies near me can also show you in person how to properly pack your belongings. Over the interstate movers usually contract this service out. By doing this the resident can’t see what the movers are doing with regards to packing and prepping your house for the move. Please do your home work in selecting the right movers for you.
