Once you have decided to have a moving company take care of your move, then the search for a suitable moving company begins. But how do you choose the moving company that suits you best? And what should you pay attention to?
You have a move on the way. A move guarantees a period in which a lot has to be arranged and a period that can cause you stress. With a move, all help is welcome, so a mover can unburden you by taking care of the move. The question then is: what should you pay attention to when choosing a mover? We give you the essential tips for choosing the right mover for you.
A recognized mover
Tip 1 is to investigate whether a removal company is also a recognized mover. The difference with recognized movers in Singapore versus other removal parties is that the staff at a recognized removal company is actually trained to be a removal company. In short, the staff is a group of certified relocation specialists. In addition, a recognized mover is insured for any damage that the household effects may incur, often up to very large amounts. In short, the cheaper alternative of an unauthorized mover without insurance can sometimes mean an expensive joke for you.
Guarantee and insurance
Ask what guarantees you have with the moving company. For example, is the move guaranteed if the mover goes bankrupt unexpectedly or can you whistle for your money? And which insurance policies apply? When you choose a mover who is affiliated with Recognized Movers, insurance will in any case be taken out for your belongings during the move.
Would you like to arrange your move yourself?
Are you still unsure whether to arrange your move yourself or to hand it over to a moving company?
Start taking inventory on time
Don’t wait too long to find a suitable moving company. It is best to start immediately as soon as you know your moving date. If you do not take stock until shortly in advance, then you will definitely run out of time to move in a calm manner.
Make a personal appointment on location
Every move is personal. Always make a personal appointment on location with the moving company. This way you get to know the company and the working method a little bit and you can better judge whether this moving company suits you. In addition, the moving company can make a completely personal tailor-made offer. Does the moving company not want to visit you? Then you can actually already question that.
Take a good look at the quotation & general terms and conditions
When you have received a quotation, always check carefully whether all cost items are listed. Is it clearly stated what the activities of the moving company are and what activities you will be doing yourself? Make sure you read and understand the entire quotation. If something is unclear, please contact the moving company. Of course, no matter how boring it may be, it is always wise to read the general terms and conditions.
In short: make sure you know clearly which agreements have been made. Then you can never be faced with surprises.
