Nobody wants to deal with the stress and hassle of moving on their own, and if you are going to be hiring movers, then you need to make sure that you understand the questions that you need to ask them. Because you don’t want to invite complete strangers into your home, it’s important that you fully vet the company you are going to hire to ensure that you have made a good choice.
1. How long have you been in business?
While there are some moving companies who have been in business a long time and don’t offer the best service, generally speaking, companies who have been around awhile are going to provide you with great service. They will understand what the client needs and how to make sure that they take care of them.
2. What kind of liability coverage do you have?
The problem with hiring Toronto movers is that you are trusting strangers to move your precious items for you. You will want to make sure that the company you hire will be able to offer you full protection of all of your items so that you can recoup your losses if they break something that is very valuable. Without the right coverage you may be out of luck.
3. Will you bring the right equipment for the job?
Without the right equipment, the moving company that you hire is going to struggle to get the job done correctly and quickly. They need to not only bring the right size moving truck, but also dollies and any hoisting equipment that will be necessary to move heavy items.
4. Do you have recommendations that I can see?
While researching a moving company online is a good idea, remember that they can put whatever they want on their website. You will want to see recommendations from past clients so you can be sure that the company you hire will provide you with great service.
Make sure to dig deep online for honest reviews and be wary if the company is reluctant to provide you with recommendations.
5. What kind of extra services do you offer?
Every moving company is going to offer different additional services and they are all going to charge you for them. You need to make sure that you understand what qualifies as an additional service and what the charge will be. Common services that are considered additional include travel time to your home, fuel charges, disassembly of furniture, and handling large or awkward furniture or objects.
