Relocating? Five Questions to Ask Your Mover

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving to a new location is undoubtedly thrilling, however it may also be very stressful. Asking family and friends for assistance is not consistently an option and undertaking everything yourself is extremely hard. Employing a professional moving company in Tulsa may make the relocation simpler on you if you use the best mover. You don't wish to get taken advantage of, you want a fair price, and also you want to make sure that your things are going to be safe and that they'll get there on time. You have done your research, collected prices, and made your choice on which moving company to select. Here are a few questions you should ask your professional mover in Tulsa before moving day rolls around.

Who is my primary contact point during my move?

You'll want to make sure that you have the contact information for your customer care coordinator so you can check in as well as inform them if there are any adjustments on your end. Additionally it is wise to ask for the driver's contact number, if you happen to need to get in touch with them directly regarding loading or delivery particulars. Finally, be certain and ask for an afterhours contact in the event that something unforeseen happens after 5pm or over the weekend and you need to talk to someone without delay.

Are there extra costs over the written quote?

A lot of moving companies provide you with an itemized written estimate with the charges you will incur. Make sure you read through this document carefully and know very well what is included and what is not. For instance, some movers do not include empty carton pickup within their pricing, which would bring about extra charges. If there's something on the moving estimate which you don't fully grasp, talk to your relocation consultant or customer service coordinator for clarification.

When should I expect my belongings to be delivered?

The last thing you want to do is wait for days or perhaps weeks for your things to reach your new residence. Your moving company should have the ability to supply you with a good plan of when your things will arrive. Typically a delivery window is available until your items are loaded and then, the driver should be able to give you a more precise delivery date. Additionally, you will want to ask about how they will deal with issues in the event that they'll be late because of unforeseen situations.

Is there anything that can't be shipped with your moving company?

Typically, moving your house suggests moving your furniture, personal things, clothes, and other stuff for the house. These should never be a predicament. However, there are some items, such as flammable or explosive products, that can't go on the moving truck. And there are other items that it may well be advisable to self-transport, including cash, jewelry, collectibles, artwork, as well as other valuable pieces.

What protections do you have in place due to COVID-19?

You must do everything that you can to guard your family's health and well-being. The very last thing you need is a lax team interacting with your family members and possessions. Ensure that your mover and workers are sticking to appropriate protocols, wearing face masks, washing hands, and social distancing.
