Storing Smarter Every Day

I have always been the kind of person who loves organization, which is why inheriting a bunch of items from a long lost aunt was really difficult for me. I realized that I couldn't part with things, but I knew that I had to store things in a smart way if I wanted to have enough room. I started going through things, nesting boxes, and working on a viable solution, and before I knew it, things were really coming together. I wanted to start a blog for people who need help storing things, so that you can get the advice you need.

What Type Of Residential Or Commercial Moving Services Do You Need? 4 Questions To Ask Now

How can you choose the best moving company for your needs? The top mover in your area won't always equal the best mover for your household. Instead of reading random reviews and listening to general referrals, you need to choose a company that is your individual mover match. Before you pick a commercial moving services or residential moving services contractor based on reputation alone, take a look at the top questions to ask during the search process.

Do You Need To Move Your Office or Your Home?

Commercial moving is exactly what the name sounds like. These services include commercial (business) moves. You will need a commercial mover if you want to transport your office, retail store, or other business items from point A to point B. But if you want to move your home office or your primary residence, you will need a residential moving contractor. 

What Is Your Most Basic Service?

Are you on a tight moving budget? If you don't have extra money to spare, a no-frills basic moving service is the ideal option. This type of service should include lifting, carrying, and transportation. When you ask for an estimate, make sure the contractor knows you don't want any add-ons or special services. Review the company's list of potential extras and what a basic option includes before you agree to a quote. You don't want to find out that the basic moving service doesn't cover larger pieces of furniture or fragile items on your moving day.

What Is Your Most All-Inclusive Service?

Are time and energy your tough spots? Work, school, caring for your family, or anything else takes up your time and makes it almost impossible to pack, plan, prep, and move on your own. Instead of using your vacation days to move, hiring a sitter, or dropping everything else to get ready for this major transition, hire a company that provides a full service or all-inclusive package. 

As the name implies, full service moves include a full range of moving services. The contractor may provide moving materials (such as boxes, tape, and bubble wrap), pack your boxes and bins, disassemble/reassemble furniture, label containers, organize everything before and after the move, and do everything else included in a basic moving service. 

How Do You Handle Mid-Move Damage?

Accidents happen—even when you choose the most experienced or careful mover. To reduce the financial risks, talk to your would-be future mover about how they handle loss/damage-related claims. Most movers are legally liable for move-related damage and losses, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Refer to the full replacement value protection section of your moving contract for more information on the company's responsibility and how much they pay per item/pound. The FMCSA notes that it's usually possible to waive full replacement coverage and elect released value protection. While this can reduce the price of the move, you will need to cover some damage or loss-related costs.
