2 Tips That Could Save You Hundreds Of Dollars With Movers

Mar 28, 2008
When you need to relocate your home or office from either Dallas or Atlanta, it can be a very trying time for you both physically and emotionally. So the last thing you need is the fear of wondering if that great price quote is all that great after all.

For instance, not all moving companies in Dallas or Atlanta will wrap your valuable items for you, or disassemble large pieces of furniture for you. Many companies will do this if you accept the extra charges, which could get pricey. Make sure all work is backed by good customer service.

There are some things you can do to protect yourself and avoid the pitfalls of hiring outside movers. Its very difficult to totally trust strangers you hardly know to move and pack all your personal items and in hopes you have them all delivered as promised. Make sure all boxes are marked and sealed.

Movers know full well that once the truck is loaded and ready to go, after all the planning you've done, you aren't going to demand that they unload everything. You have dead lines to meet and must get to your new location. Your only protection is to get everything in writing.

I recommend that with all movers that you get a binding quote before agreeing to move with any moving company. Make absolutely certain that there are no more hidden extras. Beware moving companies that send day workers rather than trained professionals. When a moving company is trying to cut costs you are the one that will suffer.

Confirm with your moving company the day before the scheduled move out date. Make certain that they understand your address. This might not ensure that they show up if they are disreputable, but it will show them that you are on the ball and it might inhibit the likelihood that they will see you as an easy target.

At the very least they should be dressed appropriately for a move. If not, it could be a sign that they might not take good care of your belongings. In some cases a company will say that they will bring a 24' truck for the job, but might show up with a smaller truck or even a trailer in order to increase the number of trips and run up your bill.

There are a number of scams out there and according to some watchdog groups the number of scams is increasing as is the number of companies committing them. It is up to you to make sure that you and your belongings are safe from unscrupulous moving companies.
