What to Expect from a Moving Company

What To Expect On Moving Day You’ve found your moving company and set the date. What should you expect for the big day? Your moving coordinator should have prepped you over the phone on what to expect on moving day. You should expect the crew size to be accurate with what was spoken about over the phone. If you’ve agreed upon four movers, then four movers should be present. Expect your moving crew to be properly equipped with blankets, shrink-wrap, dollies, and floor protection. Some moving companies may use the plastic floor protection. Northwest Movers takes an eco friendly approach with reusable Neoprim floor runners. Before anything is moved, your moving crew should look over your furniture to detail any damage that is present before the team begins moving your belongings. After this you will be asked to sign a Bill Of Lading. A bill of lading is a contract between you and the moving company. This will detail the start time, the hourly rate, any packing material charges, and two insurance options. Included in every move is released value protection. This covers up to $0.60 per pound. Let’s say for example you have a 200 LB table. Something happens with that table during the move. The payout would be 0.60 multiplied by the weight of the item (200). Leaving you with a payout of $120. Not a lot of money when you consider the item purchased is probably worth much more. You’re team of movers will then prep the house for moving.
