If your business has been in the same building for several years, then you have probably collected a large number of files that may now be obsolete as well as well as other general junk that you will have to either move with the company or throw out. You might not feel like you can part with a lot of the paper files, so you may be stuck moving it all. You will want to have movers help you, but it will be important to find a moving company that is trustworthy, efficient, reliable, and affordable.
Majority of movers will ask for deposit to guarantee a reservation otherwise they will not take you serious. Also there is a penalty fee if you cancel your reservation, just be aware of all these things.
Thus, while selecting a sf moving company, you need to research thoroughly about the company you want to hire. Here are some of the things that can direct your research for the right moving company.
Collect or purchase boxes. Even better purchase some of those blue plastic containers with snap lids. They are inexpensive and will give you plenty of reassurance that your precious items will not get damaged. They are easy to load and stack. They also will protect your things from moisture. We bought probably 10 of them for our last move and I was wishing that I would have purchased 10 more. Next label them all, kitchen, bathroom, tools etc, When packing them use foam to cushion any breakable items. Try not to pack heavy items on top of delicate ones. This will prevent your delicate items from being damaged or completely broken.
First, consider what kind of moving service you need. For some people, it is important to have people who will not only pack their belongings but who will also transport them from the old home to the new home. Other people need movers who will carry their belongings from the home to the truck, but afterward, they can handle the drive themselves. Still others only need the packed items transported. Before you commit to choosing movers, consider what your options are and what you need from them.
Rates are usually determined either by how far you are moving or by hour. While getting an hourly rate might seem like a great idea, you have to remember that the movers have complete control over how long it takes to move you! They can take as long as possible loading the truck and moving the truck. Make sure to find out how you can pay and when you are expected to pay. Some companies that run scams will load all of your stuff and than refuse to unload it until you have paid, oftentimes a much larger rate than they originally estimated.
It’s a good idea to consider getting insurance on your most valuable possessions. Also, be sure to keep copies of invoices from the movers. Depending on the type of service you sign up for, the price will vary quite a bit. Read the fine print of the contract so you know exactly what you’re getting into.
