Hiring a removalist company to take your things to your new home means trusting strangers with everything you own on the premise that they’re professionals. Give yourself more peace of mind by finding the best insured packing and relocation company you can to handle your stuff. This way, you can rest assured that they’ll move your things efficiently and carefully and even if there are mistakes, you’ll be compensated for them.
Build a Relationship With Your Removalist Company
Before you choose the insured packing and relocation service you’re comfortable with, make a few phone calls and meet with the people that will be working with you during your move. Having a conversation can go a long way in building trust between you and your removalist company so you’ll know that your things will be handled with care.
What is Covered?
Most removalist companies, including the removal service we utilised earlier in the year, include insurance but not all of them will insure your things, the house you’re moving from, and the house you’re moving to. Accidents can happen when furniture is being moved, even with professionals. The best insured packing and relocation companies will cover all of these things in some way. Ask questions and find out exactly what is covered before you make your choice.
Inventory and Pack Accordingly
In order to ensure that all of your things make it to your new residence, it’s a good idea to make an inventory of your boxes and furniture that you also give to the removalist company. You don’t have to go crazy with it but if you know how many boxes you have and where they’re going, you’ll better be able to see that all of them are where they’re supposed to be once you arrive. An insured packing and relocation company should appreciate this extra step, because it holds their workers accountable as well as preventing you from claiming something that they never moved. The little bit more works for everyone.
How Will You Be Compensated?
In the event that the insured packing and relocation company does lose or damage one or more of your items, you’ll want to know how to receive compensation. This is among the questions you should ask among initial interview with the company you’re thinking of choosing. You’ll want to know:
- How much you’re insured for,
- When and where to file a claim,
- How long it will take to receive compensation, and
- If items that exceed the insured limit will be covered up to the limit if not past it.
No one wants to talk about money with these things but when it comes to your things you can’t be shy about what will happen. Know the information before you hire the company.
Get Ready to Move
Once you’ve chosen your insured packing and relocation company, you’re ready to get moving. Label your boxes well, use bright colours to “code” the boxes, and stay friendly with the professionals who come to your home to help you move. A little “please” and “thank you” goes a long way with everyone.
