5 Things not to do During Interstate Moving

Posted by bennysmoving on August 20th, 2014

Moving your household from one state to another can be a truly stressful business, what with transferring so many items and picking a good packer and mover to do the job for you. Though with the modern packaging and moving systems now, things have become much easier, there are certain aspects on which a little bit of caution is required.  Unlike a local move, where all your household things are going to reach you on the same day, an interstate moving involves forgetting about your precious items for a few days at least while it is on freight. So, here are a few things that you should not do, if you are planning up a domestic transfer.

•    Engaging A Mover
Well, there are quite a number of movers and packers, who do interstate moving. Do not pick out a moving company, just because they are going to do it at a cheaper rate. Check for the things like the type of vehicle they are going to employ for moving your things, the special care they are going to take during the freight, any customer care facilities whom you can contact, if your goods are delayed and so on. Engaging a good mover is one of the crucial decisions you need to make during interstate moving.

•    Signing Up Documents
Movers often sign up documents and papers, before they move your things interstate. Do not sign anything that you are not entirely comfortable with. Check the documents carefully and consult an expert before putting your initials at the bottom.

•    Packaging Services
Interstate moving is unlike a local moving; where you can pack up your things any way you want. Since your things are going to be on the freight for a much longer time, do not try to pack it up yourself. Engage the best packers to do it and monitor the whole process to ascertain nothing will go amiss or be damaged on the road.

•    Time Of Travel
Do not travel during the season of extreme weather condition. While you cannot control the climate, you can at least take precautions before sending your precious items up on the road. Look for weather reports before starting up the road trip.

•    Claim Documents
Read the claim documents carefully and ask all relevant questions before taking up insurance. Insurance is an essential commodity for interstate transfers.

Interstate moving can be a daunting occasion if the above-mentioned things are not taken care of but a good interstate mover can make it safe and secure by planning carefully.
