Important information about moving

Planning a move and making certain that you have dealt with all the important matters well in advance will help you to avoid any last minute panics and allow you to enjoy the process of settling into your new home.

One thing that can assist you with remembering all the important details that need to be taken care of in the weeks prior to the day of the move is a moving checklist.  You should also get a minimum of three quotes in writing from professional moving companies.  Make sure that you do your research and check out the reputation and credentials of any moving company before you decide to do business; never choose a moving company just because it offers the lowest rates.

It is necessary for professional movers to possess a published tariff that incorporates information such as their available services, their rates, and the rules and regulations relevant to the assessed applicable charges.  This tariff has to be given to customers if they ask for it.  The moving company’s order for service lists the services it will be providing for you and includes the dates on which your items are to be collected and then delivered to your new home.

You should check your items at the destination as they are being unloaded.  Any damaged or lost items should be reported, with full details, before you sign the inventory.
