Last most forgotten items
Fridges and freezers are always last and sometimes not always on your mind. Make sure you have enough boxes for those items inside, as it’s very important for them to be placed back into the fridge and deep freeze as soon as you arrive at the new location.
Avoid helping your movers load the truck at any cost, as this will void cargo insurance.
Our movers are fully trained and when we are hired we are responsible for you belongings, So whenever a third party or a customer wants to help load and unload we unfortunately cannot be held responsible for any item once this is done.
Always do a walk through of your home, prior to and and after your move and note any damages that may have occurred before and after your move.
This is one of our terms and conditions, its a great idea to make sure your mover didn’t damage any of your belongings, Depending on which company you hire you may not have the chance to show them something that wasn’t there prior to your move!
Always allow a little extra time for your move as things don’t always go exactly as planned time wise. Sometimes it may be a shorter move and sometimes it takes an extra hour or two.
