Moving Supplies from Uline

If you are going to be moving this summer and you need to hire a moving company to help you move across the country, you need to make sure to check the moving company’s ratings to insure that your move will have a better chance of going smoothly.

Pitfalls to moving companies can be anything from damaged items in transit, to delayed delivery times, to extorting more money if you want your stuff back again.  You can check with your local Better Business Bureau for the moving company’s track record.  If they do not have any information you should go online to epinions website to see if there is any reviews on the company.  There are also other websites that have ratings for moving companies that you can find in search engines.

 
Make sure that you get a price quote in writing for the cost for moving your home.  You will need to read the fine print.  Make sure that the company you are hiring is not a sound alike company.  You want to insure that you are working with the main moving company and not a company that is using a similar name.

Visit the moving company’s online website for more information.  See how well they present their information online.  If they present their information in a clear and easy to understand way, you will likely have a successful move.

If you don’t have a whole lot of stuff to move, and you don’t want to rent an Uhaul, you might want to check out a new way of moving.  PODS is a company that delivers a shipping container to you.  When you are done filling it up, they will come and pick it up and move it to your desired location.  PODS is also available for storing your stuff as well.

 

When you get ready to move, you will want to learn how to properly package and prepare your furniture for transport.  If you learn how to package and pad your furniture correctly before the movers come, you can save some money.  If they have to do the work, you can except that you may have to pay more money that is were reading the fine print and asking questions before you move.  You should also ask for insurance costs to know how much is covered, and how much to buy more insurance if needed.
