When relocating, there is a good chance that people need to hire a moving company, especially when there are pieces of furniture or other objects that cannot be transported without the use of a large moving truck and that manpower that a moving company can provide.
Sadly, there are stories old and new about horrible moving companies and because we’ve been around for over 70 years, we’ve heard everything.
One of the more popular tales is how movers steal entire trucks full of everything a person owns. This is less likely to happen today because of laws that allow customers to sue companies and law enforcement being aware of this, but it is still possible for a new moving company with little work history or background to do this and disappear, however.
Fortunately, there are many moving companies that are reviewed and vetted by customers online, and this information can help you hire better. Theft is one of the chief worries of people who relocate. And sometimes, it is not even the moving company that is responsible. The upstairs neighbour walking past could snag anything out of a pile of boxes when no one is watching.
Many people schedule their moves on specific days and times for a reason, and one major annoyance is movers arriving late. Trucks stuck in bad weather or mud, breaking down because of poor maintenance or age, movers unable to find your address, etc. The most irritating are drivers that are irresponsible. You even hear stories of drivers arriving at a designated location several days late. Having to sit for days in an empty house waiting for the moving trucks while your stuff sits somewhere in a parking lot with little or no communication from the moving company can be infuriating – and it’s unacceptable!
A story that happens too often to be of comfort is that of moving companies that deliver broken and damaged items or having things fall off trucks unheeded. This is why you need to ensure that your moving company is fully insured. While it may seem like a good idea to just hire anyone with a large truck to move your goods, there is expertise involved in ensuring goods make it to their intended destination in one piece.
A professional moving company, like A-Zip Moving & Cartage for example, has been doing this for over 70 years. Our staff are trained to take the utmost care when moving your precious belongings.
One of the best ways to find a reputable moving company is to check out the Better Business Bureau. You will want to find a moving company that has an A+ Rating with the BBB. With this rating, you can be assured that others have been satisfied with their experience, and if there were any negative reviews, you will be able to see the outcome through the BBB website.
