If you are currently on the verge of having to move and you are looking for the right relocation company, making sure that your movers are reliable and professional such as American Moving and Storage it is very important. Here are some questions to ask before making the final decision of choosing one moving company over the others:

  • Licenses – there are many movers that do not carry a state-issued license, therefore are not allowed to provide moving services legally. To avoid them, make sure that the mover you hire carries the right licenses;
  • Experience with special requests – try to figure out whether your move requires any special approaches, such as moving very bulky items on stairs or in narrow staircases or moving very fragile and sensitive, high-value items;
  • Liability coverage – you need a moving company that takes responsibility for the mishaps that can occur during the moving process. Licensed relocation companies can and usually do provide two types of liability coverage: full value protection, making the mover liable for the full value of the items that get damaged or lost during the transport and released value protection, which makes the mover liable for 60 cents per pound per item lost or damaged during the transport.
