Good Greek Moving & Storage Frequently Asked Questions
Here at Good Greek Moving & Storage, we get a lot of questions because of our years of experience handling residential moves and commercial moves in Florida. We’re more than happy to answer. Part of our job is to educate our clients on what to expect before, during, and after a move. Our goal is to make your move as stress-free as possible.
Here are some of the questions we hear most often.
How Much Will My Move Cost?
Reputable movers shouldn’t “guess” at the cost and then slap you with a surprisingly high bill on moving day. At Good Greek, we send a moving professional to your home for an in-person, free evaluation of your moving needs. We then provide a written estimate for your moving costs so you can make accurate financial plans for your move.
Are You Licensed And Insured?
Yes, Good Greek Moving and Storage is fully licensed and insured.
Are The Movers Employees Of Good Greek Moving & Storage?
Yes, all our movers are employees of Good Greek Moving & Storage who have undergone full background checks and drug testing.
Do Moving Costs Change On Moving Day?
No, they should not. The written estimate we provide is a estimated price. There are no “moving day surprises” when you deal with Good Greek Moving & Storage.
Do You Handle Out Of State Moves?
Yes, Good Greek Moving & Storage is a full-service relocation company and moves individuals and businesses locally throughout South Florida, to all points within Florida and throughout the United States (long distance hauls).
Do You Offer Storage?
Yes, Good Greek Moving & Storage offers temporary storage space in a brand new climate controlled and secure storage facility, if needed by clients.
How Do I Avoid Moving Scams?
Unfortunately, scams are a problem in South Florida, across the state and around the country. Whether you hire Good Greek Moving & Storage or not, we always recommend that you research a moving company thoroughly. Focus especially on areas such as estimated pricing, the availability of third-party insurance, and proper licensing. Also, check out their reputation as a quality mover (online reviews can help in this area).
Do I Want a Full-Service Mover?
It can definitely help make your move go smoother. A full-service mover offers packing, unpacking, disassembly and reassembly of light furniture (such as beds), safe transportation to locations in all of Florida and across the United States, and storage space if required.
Do I Need Insurance For My Move?
All licensed movers must offer standard insurance at no cost. This insurance is based on weight, not value, and is designed to cover any nicks or scratches, but not meant to replace items. If you want more coverage, keep in mind that movers are not insurers. A quality mover will offer you the opportunity to insure your move through a third-party insurance company and provide you all the information you need to do so.
What Can I Do Before Moving Day?
Some smart pre-moving steps include:
- Purge the items you don’t want to be moved
- Donate food items – you don’t want to fill up space with food that might spoil
- If you do your own packing, make sure it’s all completed before the movers arrive and ready to go from a central location
- Make sure there is a clear path for movers to take items from your home to the truck
- Have list of any items you need to be disassembled before transport
Do I Need to Pack Everything Myself?
No. At Good Greek, we offer packing services if required.
I Have Expensive Artwork, Can Movers Handle That?
That depends on the mover. At Good Greek, we have experience in moving fragile items, including artwork.
What Can I Do On Moving Day?
Know that some items might not be best transported by movers. This includes pets and plants. Also, at the destination, have a good idea of where you want all the boxes and furniture placed before the movers arrive. This helps make the move more efficient and effective.
Should I Tip My Mover?
Tipping your movers is not required, but it is always appreciated.
