Be careful of movers who quote a very low rate - Once they have your goods in their truck, you are at their mercy. At destination, they may ask for additional money (for one reason or another), and refuse to unload the truck unless you pay the extra amount. Make sure any mover you seriously consider comes to your home and provides a written survey and estimated cost of services.
Call the NYS DOT at 1-800-786-5368 to confirm that your mover is licensed and if any complaints have been filed against him. Next, call the New York City Better Business Bureau at (212) 533-6200 or in Westchester at (914) 428-1232 to check on the integrity of the mover and their performance history.
Professionalism is very important in a move. Companies offering lower prices often use inexperienced movers, which can result in longer moves and broken valuables. Our movers are professionals. Selecting a professional mover ensures your goods will be handled promptly and efficiently.
How do they handle a claim for damage? Has the mover explained, in simple language, all claim options that are available to you, and the associated costs? Using professionals minimizes (if not eliminates) costly claims that unskilled inadequately-trained movers cause.
Moving can be a traumatic experience. Proper planning and choosing a reputable mover will ensure your valued possessions will be handled carefully and arrive at your new home on time and damage free.
