Relocating? Five Questions to Ask Your Mover
By Julie DeLong, Oil Capitol Relocation
Who's going to be my primary contact point during my move?
You'll want to make certain you have the contact information for your customer care coordinator so you can check in as well as let them know in case there are any changes on your side. It is also a good idea to obtain the driver's phone number, if you happen to need to get in touch with them directly with regards to loading or delivery specifics. Lastly, be sure and request an afterhours contact in case something unexpected comes up after 5pm or during the weekend and you have to speak with someone immediately.
Are there extra costs beyond the written estimate?
A lot of moving companies provide you with an itemized written estimate of all the charges you will incur. Make sure you read through this document completely and determine what is included and what is not. For instance, certain movers don't include empty box pickup in their pricing, which may bring about additional costs. If there is something on the moving quote which you don't fully grasp, talk to your relocation consultant or customer service coordinator for clarification.
When can I expect my belongings to be delivered?
The very last thing you want to do is wait for a long time for your belongings to reach your new home. Your moving company should be able to give you a good plan of when your items will arrive. Usually a delivery window is available until your items are loaded and then, the driver should be able to provide a more accurate delivery date. You will additionally want to inquire about how they will handle details in case they're going to be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances.
Is there anything that may not be sent with your moving company?
Generally, moving your home implies moving your household furniture, personal things, garments, along with other household items. These should never be an issue. Having said that, there are a few items, such as flammable or explosive products, which simply cannot go on the moving truck. And there are other belongings that it may well be advisable to self-transport, including cash, jewelry, collectibles, art, as well as other valuable things.
What protections do you have in place due to COVID-19?
You should do everything that you can to protect your family's health and well-being. The last thing you want is a lax crew interacting with your family and belongings. Make sure your mover and team are following adequate protocols, wearing masks, washing hands, as well as social distancing.
