Read this before deciding who will handle the transportation for Moving


Once you have well defined everything you will transport to your new home, spend a good time, it is advisable is four or five weeks before the event, to look for information on the moving companies: what services they offer, guarantees and, above all, prices.

Today there are movers that, in addition to the transportation of all the furniture, offer the service of packing. They go a day earlier to your address and are in charge of packaging everything.

In the package of a standard house, four family members, two bedrooms, living room, dining room, bathroom and kitchen, this service costs approximately $ 500, includes boxes of different sizes and all the necessary equipment (bubble, Etc.) to protect all kinds of articles, from porcelain and porcelain to books. In addition, many companies include service insurance that protects all that is carried in case of breakage, misuse or misplacement.

We recommend selecting several companies and ask to visit to make a budget, which must deliver in writing specifying the terms. Never close the deal over the phone, since later they could modify the costs. Be wary of excessively cheap moving companies. The quality, service and efficiency have their price.

Once you have chosen a company, check that it complies with the requirements established by law related to the sector. Sign the contract only when everything is according to your requirements. Check that the document includes the company details, inventory, route, date of the move and price.
