Escaping Unexpected Expenses
Published on Wednesday, 15 August 2012
1. BE HONEST WITH THE COMPANY
Extra charges and additional payment requirements are usually enforced on you by the moving company because the service you ask from it is more difficult and sophisticated than usual. Therefore it is imperative that you precisely list and mention all of your belongings to your company. Only then it will be able to provide you with a good quote. You can't expect that the company will handle every problematic detail of your removal if you don't share it with them so inform your company for every little thing that is troubling you in connection with your move. You have to mention everything to them and what they should be careful with, otherwise they might unintentionally cause damage and the reason for it won't be their lack of expertise but your inconsistency. If you haven't mentioned an item of yours to the company and later that item breaks you will have to pay for it and not the company. Regardless, the staff you pay for will do what is necessary to get the job done and in the end of the day it will become clear that the company has done more than you have paid for. And this is how they will enforce taxes upon you that you will be obliged to pay.
2. BREAKABLE OBJECTS
Examples for easily damageable belongings are mirrors, glass vases, computers and televisions. Both you and the professional staff dealing with your move need to be extremely careful with your TV. If you have a new generation wide screen television you have to know that these types of TV are quite vulnerable. Their screen breaks a lot easier than you might expect. If it is necessary try to assist the staff with the carrying. Other examples of breakable belongings are goblets, cabinets with glass-covered doors and others. The larger your breakable possessions are the greater is the danger for an accident to occur. It will get even more risky if you live at an upper floor in a tall building because carrying heavy objects down the stairs is not exactly considered safe at all. Another important thing you might probably forget about is the details of you sofa that might include recliners or the hideaway. Such assets will usually make it a bit more difficult for the professional staff to deal with the transport of your items and because of that you will have to pay more. You also need to mind the length and width of your bed, how easily can it fit through the front door and does it have any accessories that could make its transportation more problematic.
To avoid any of those extra charges make a list with all your possessions before you contact the company. Under every item of yours write down anything that might be important for the process of moving. This way you will be prepared when the time comes for you to inform the staff of the details of your belongings. It is no more difficult than writing homework. This and the money you will have to pay for the whole service itself are the only two things that you need in order to do your move successfully.
Receiving an accurate quote from your moving company is the key to save yourself from any additional taxes. If you are open, honest and supportive to the staff you will have no problems whatsoever. If you are helpful and supportive to your moving company, the favor will be generously returned.
