FURNITURE DOESN’T FIT
Discovering the hard way that your furniture does not fit through the door of your new home when you arrive can cause a lot of stress. You’ve driven for hours, unloaded the van, and you can’t get your future through the doors. This can be a big disaster!
To avoid this problem make sure you measure the dimensions of your furniture before you move. Include the width, height, and depth. And then compare these measurements with the dimensions of the entry points of your new home.
FURNITURE DOESN’T FIT/YOUR ITEMS ARE DAMAGED
Unfortunately, damages can occur easily during a move. If you don’t pack your items securely, they can scatter and roll around in boxes during transit. And arriving at your new home with damaged belongings can cause a lot of heartbreak.
To avoid damages, make sure you pack well. Use extra caution and make sure everything is securely wrapped and placed into appropriate containers and boxes. Having a professional team to pack your valuables can take care of this for you. At Abe Lincoln Movers, we can help you ensure your fragile items are safe and secure for the move.
STUFF IS MISSING
Arriving at your new home eager to unpack all your things only to realize that some of them are missing can be disheartening. Especially if your moving company is unable to locate your missing items.
Make sure you or your moving company do a thorough inventory check before the move. This way you’ll know exactly what was packed before you left. And you’ll have a record of what items have gone missing. You can also purchase extra insurance coverage from your moving company. This can give you peace of mind knowing everything you own will be covered if something goes missing.
IT COSTS MORE THAN EXPECTED
Arriving at your new home eager to unpack all your things only to realize that some of them are missing can be disheartening. Especially if your moving company is unable to locate your missing items.As you get closer to your move, you might discover that your moving company charges more than you expected. You may find that they’re charging a higher rate if you booked a “last-minute” service. Or, when you go to pay upon delivery, you may find extra fees added to your invoice. This can add a lot of stress to the moving process.
Make sure you ask about any extra fees before you commit to a moving company. Some companies will add a fee for different things you may only see on your invoice once your items are delivered. So make sure your moving company is upfront about any possible hidden fees they may have. And try and book as far in advance as possible for your move to avoid paying a higher rate for last-minute services.
