Don’t Let Thieves Drive the Truck Away–4 Simple Ways to Plan for a Smooth Move
This story recently in the news, where Movers Allegedly Rob Family of Their Belongings, is so shocking. To think that movers would just pack everything on the truck and then take off with it all–who would even think that evil? I guess it’s a good reminder that crooks are everywhere. Making sure you’ve hired a reputable company is a must. Sure it’s great to get a good deal, but if they steal or cause damage, it would very likely do more harm than good. If you will be moving soon, here are some things to do in advance of your move to ensure things run smooth:
Check into the company you are hiring: Get referrals and don’t always go with the lowest price. Make sure the company you hire has a good reputation. Remember, you get what you pay for. Check your moving company here: protectyourmove.gov
Check building rules: If you’re in a high-rise, you’ll need to schedule elevator time well in advance of busy moving days. Also make sure the building will allow the type of truck the mover is bringing into the loading dock.
Take Video: Go around the house prior to the move and video tape the contents of each room. It will come in handy in identifying any damages that might happen. It’s also a good way to take a quick inventory and it really helped the family who was scammed above. They got video of the thieves in action!
