Can I Pack My Clothes In A Chest Or Dresser Drawers?
Lightweight clothing – sweaters, shirts, blouses, etc. – may be left in the drawers. Do not fill drawers with heavy items such as books, table linens or sheets, which can damage the piece of furniture during transit. Be careful NOT to leave fragile items, money, jewelry, watches or other valuables in the drawers, as well as anything that might spill or leak.
Am I Protected Against Loss Or Damage While My Goods Are In Transit?
Yes, but how much protection you have and its cost to you depend upon the “valuation” program you choose Full-Value Coverage or Released Rate Liability (60 cents per pound per article).
How And When Should I Pay?
Some charges must be paid when we take possession of your shipment.
What Is The Binding Estimate?
A binding estimate specifies in advance the precise cost of the move based on the services requested or deemed necessary at the time of the estimate.
When Should I Move?
If there is an option, most moving companies suggest that you move during the spring, fall or winter. If you need to move during peak times such as summer, end of month and holidays, it is a good idea to schedule your move more than a month ahead of time.
Do I Need An Estimate?
We offer complimentary in-home estimates that are competitively and fairly priced.
What Type Of Insurance Will I Be Offered
These are a list of questions that we are commonly asked here at Red Carpet Moving, in our Dallas, Tyler and Longview offices. Hopefully this will help answer some of your most important questions about your upcoming local or long-distance move.
LIMITED LIABILITY:This is the basic coverage required by law and doesn’t cost you anything. Under limited liability, the mover is responsible for 60 cents per pound per item for an interstate move.
ADDED VALUATION:This type allows you to collect the amount based on the current replacement value of the item, minus depreciation. The amount you pay for this coverage depends on how much you declare your goods are worth.
FULL VALUE:This insurance costs the most and covers the actual cost of an item’s replacement or repair, without any deduction for depreciation. Before purchasing coverage from the moving company, check your homeowner’s insurance policy to see if it will cover your goods during a move and compare plans.
How Long Does It Take To Move
Every time you move, there are several factors that determine the total time it takes to complete your move. How long does it take to move your house or apartment? Here are a few factors:
How many boxes How much furniture How many odds and ends (unpacked items) How many flights of stairs Size of the elevator. Long hallways/long carry out to the moving truck How many items need to be disassembled & reassembled. How close we are able to park the truck to your location.
When Planning for the cost of your local or long distance move it’s important to understand whether or not your move fits within the average move. Remember, an average will contain people who are moving furniture only as well as those with a full house. The following is what we have found to be the average amount of time it takes to move:
