The work of packing up all your stuff to move to a new home can be daunting at best. Your move, either cross-town or across the country, could be fraught with anxiety and headaches: How do I know how to select a mover? Am I being treated fairly? Are they safe?
Do some research before you select a Charlotte moving company that you allow to move your hard-earned possessions and keepsakes. Don’t entrust your belongings or your move to just anyone. Take some advice on hiring the RIGHT movers and save yourself a lot of potential trouble.
Start by getting recommendations for movers from people that you know and trust. One great source is real estate agents. Get estimates. Find a mover who will come out and speak to you about the details and possible costs of the move you plan to make.
Today it’s easy to conduct a background check online for an individual or a company. The Better Business Bureau and the American Moving and Storage Association may be able to help. You will definitely find TNT Moving Systems in the BBB Listings! There also websites that recommend companies or provide customer feedback and recommendations.
You might try movingscam.com. It provides a list of movers who have received frequent or excessive complaints from customers. Another website you might try is movingsham.com.
If moving to another state you may request that the mover provide a written estimate, some are binding. The U.S. Department of Transportation warns that final costs are generally higher. You’re your mover everything in basements and attics so that you get as close an estimate as you can. Be specific regarding details that might make the move harder, such as stairs or cramped spaces. Get references, and get company USDOT numbers and motor carrier license numbers.
When a bid is too low be skeptical. Charlotte moving company rates are very competitive. Try negotiating with a higher bid from a more impressive mover instead. After you choose a company, check to see that it is licensed to legally move you: Visit Safersys.org, enter the company’s USDOT number and get facts fast.
Another great resource is the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration hotline at 1-888-368-7238. You can check to see if there have been any complaints filed against your company.
