Planning to move into NYC needs patience, tolerance, and gumption. bharat packers vishrantwadi To move successfully in NYC means you need to undertake a lot of preliminary research to ensure reliability, efficacy, and cost control. According to NYC Insider complaints to the Better Business Bureau about movers is not uncommon.
What you need to do is contact a number of movers recommended by people you know. Next be sure to ask for estimates and sample contracts. Always make an effort to check out their credentials with the references they provide and with the DOT, State Department of Transportation. Never choose a mover because his estimate is the lowest. Always choose a mover because he is licensed, is professional in all aspects, lays the cards on the table, has no hidden clauses in the contract, answers all your questions satisfactorily, and has been in the moving business for quite a while.
A professional mover will always suggest a pre-estimate visit and will never give an estimate based on facts got over the phone. He will suggest that you consider additional moving insurance if the objects being moved are too valuable or fragile. Always pay heed to advice given on packing and scheduling the moving offered by the mover.
Well before you begin selecting a mover you need to consider whether you want to attempt handling the move yourself. Calculate the pros and cons carefully before deciding. Very often in the long run hiring a professional is more economical.
You must however ensure that the mover has insurance for his workers and trucks; that he will handle the assignment himself and not sub let it; and that there are no complaints against him with the Better Business Bureau. Always insist on a written estimate and guarantees. Be sure to check if he offers discounts for moving in the middle of the month or off season, or if there are special rates applicable because you belong to a certain club or institution.
Most movers who are established are members of organizations like LIMSA, Long Island Moving & Storage Association. And, they adhere to the “code of conduct” drawn up by the organization they belong to. If you make an effort then you can find a mover who will do the needful without giving you any heartache.
