10 Frequently Asked Questions About Moving and Movers
By GoodGreekMoving

Professional movers get a lot of questions, but certain ones pop up more frequently than others. The following looks at frequently asked questions about moving and movers, including those about what movers do and how to best handle your move.

What If Movers Break Something?

All movers must provide basic carrier coverage for your belongings that is based on weight, not value. This means if something breaks, you will receive about 60 cents per pound of damaged goods. That’s why reputable movers always offer you the opportunity to contact third party insurers who can provide more coverage for your items. Also, make sure to check your homeowner’s insurance, which may provide coverage for a move.

How Much Do Movers Cost?

A mover charges you based on the amount and weight of your items. That’s why it’s important to get an in-person evaluation of your belongings by a professional mover so they can better determine the cost. Good Greek Moving & Storage provides this, as well as a written estimate that gives you a firm price and helps you better plan the cost of your move.

Where To Find Movers?

These days, most people use Google to find movers. That’s not a bad option. But make sure to read reviews about movers and find one that generally gets positive reviews (everyone will get bad reviews now and then). Narrow your search by only contacting movers with all the services you need. That includes offering packing materials if you want to pack yourself and packing services if you don’t. You also want written estimates, a valid license to handle moves in-state or nationally, storage facilities and experience handling moves of your size.

Why Hire Movers At All?

Some people take a Do It Yourself (DIY) approach to moving, but that comes with its share of challenges. Professional movers have the experience, equipment and manpower to handle your move quickly. In a DIY move with you and a few friends (if they all show up), it will take longer, set you back the cost of renting moving equipment and there’s a higher risk of injury.

Are There Movers Who Pack Everything?

Yes, You can save yourself the chore of packing all your stuff by hiring a mover that offers packing services. Good Greek Moving & Storage offers this service.

Can Movers Store Your Stuff?

Yes, Some movers offer storage service. You will want to go with a company that has security on its storage units. Good Greek Moving & Storage uses a computer tracking system to inventory all items and has 24/7 CCTV surveillance.

Can Movers Move Plants?

This comes up often! Yes, movers can move plants, but they’d rather not. It’s smarter to save room in your own car for plants, your most precious items and valuables, and any food you decide to take from your refrigerator. And, of course, pets!

Will Movers Take Apart The Beds?

Yes, Look for a mover who offers this service, usually listed as light assembly and disassembly of furniture. This includes your bed. Just strip it of sheets and pillows, leaving the mattress, box spring and bed frame. A professional mover will take it from there.

Are Movers Licensed?

Yes, they should be. It’s important for consumers to check on the licensing of movers. To remain a legal business, every mover must have a license with the state. They also must have separate licenses to handle out-of-state or international moves.

When Should I Call Movers?

As early as possible. If you hire experienced, ethical and professional movers, they likely will have a busy schedule. You want to contact them early so that you can ensure you get them on the date you want for your move.

These are 10 of the many FAQ about moving and movers. Keep them in mind as you plan your move. Just remember to aim for the highest quality mover you can find, one that offers great services, name recognition and experience.
