Red Flags with Full Service Movers Long Distance

Man carrying box with thumbs upMoving is very stressful. This is true if you are moving a house or an office, especially if you are moving a long distance. Full-service movers long distance is the ideal solution. They will do everything from the packing to unpacking. All you have to do is sit back and relax. However, you still have to take control of some things. Here are some red flags that will tell you to look for another moving company.

No details

When you ask for a quote, a full-service mover should give you a detailed list of what they will do for you. They will also tell you how much each service is going to cost. If the mover does not bother to walk through the property and gives you a single-line quote, be wary. You may be looking at double or even triple the quote for your move at the end of the day. Ask for a detailed, binding estimate. If the mover is vague about the details of the job, look for another mover.

No insurance

Reputable full-service long distance moving companies like Colonial Van Lines will offer you options when it comes to insurance. Damaged and lost items are common when moving long distances, even if a professional crew does the packing. The moving company will explain that standard insurance will only pay a small amount by the pound. It will not take into account the actual value of the item. Full coverage will compensate you for the value of any lost or damaged item. It is a bad sign if the mover does not bring this up with you at the start.

No credentials

A big red flag for a long distance mover is the lack of credentials. Do not take their word for it that they have the proper credentials. Ask for their USDOT or MC number of the mover. This is to make sure the company has the right licenses to move cargo across state lines. If the company is not forthcoming about this, take heed and look for someone else to do the job.

Conclusion

Full-service movers long distance can take on much of the work for a move. However, you want to make sure you are making the right choice. Take these three red flags seriously and you will.
