- Ask all questions that you want answers to and don’t leave any question unanswered.
- Ask questions related to the relocation procedure, costs, and what everything is being spent on, what kind of lorry, and anything else that you want to know about.
- Don’t forget that every scam artist doesn’t like giving specifics, so, if you notice that your questions are not being answered clearly, think about another service.
- Get a quote and write it down.
- A well-established moving company will provide you with a written estimate that includes both the price and service.
- If anyone states over the phone that a price is ‘somewhere around that,’ give them a wide berth, as they may hike up the price later on after the move has taken place.
- Don’t pay one penny until you are given a document, because if there are any issues later on, you will have your legal rights backed up by the signed document.
- Make sure that the company provides you with a fully signed document which clearly displays all of the services and pricing, which has all of the mover’s details upon it.
All of the above should guarantee that anyone out there looking for an easy target, will definitely not get you on their radar! Have a wonderful move.
