Like most companies, not all moving companies are created equal. While some may offer you a fantastic deal on your long distance relocation, the risks will often outweigh the benefits of a seemingly impressive savings.
One of the most important details to be on the lookout for when it comes to hiring a mover is whether or not the company, and all of its employees are fully insured. While the price might seem to be the most important factor when it comes to choosing the right company, at A-Zip Moving & Cartage, we know that choosing a fully insured company is of the utmost importance.
Protect Your Belongings
If you choose to work with a moving company that is not insured, then the safety of your belongings is not guaranteed. While this is of concern for short term, local moves, it is of even more concern for long distance relocations. The more distance between you and your destination, the higher the margin of error. Even with the very best packing job, accidents do happen. How much are your belonging worth to you? Don’t be left disappointed by unforeseen circumstances.
Get The Details
Before you sign a contract, find out exactly what your moving company will insure against, and more importantly what they won’t! Start by asking about their mover’s insurance, and always insist on seeing a copy of The Certificate of Insurance. Common things to have an eye out for are whether or not their insurance policy is up to date, or whether it has expired! Be sure to find out the minimums and maximum claims that their insurance policy covers, and whether this is a good fit for your moving needs.
Ask About Past Experiences
It’s always a good idea to find out what experience your moving company has had with filing insurance claims in the past. Not only will you find out what their track record is like for damaged belongings, but you can also find out how adept they are at navigating the murky world of insurance claims. Ask about their minimum deductible, and whether or not they have filed any claims in the past year. If so, what was their outcome?
