Moving Your Estate With Fine Paintings, Furniture, And More? What To Know About Moving Companies

by Candice Lopez

If you are moving and you are starting to grow concerned about the care in which your valuable items will be transferred, there are a few things that you want to think about. You will need to spend the time to find a reliable moving company, and you want to invest the money into making sure that all your items are moved safely and as they need to be. Here are some of the things that you want to talk with the moving company about, and things that you want to do before you start the moving process:

Extra Insurance Options

Get a copy of the insurance coverage included with the moving services company, and then send it to your insurance agent. They can go over the coverage and then determine what extra coverage you may need and want for the valuable items that you will be moving, and for anything that may have to go into storage. You want to be sure that if anything is damaged it can be replaced or you can be compensated

Pre-Packaging Approval

Talk with the moving company about the materials and supplies they will use to package some of the items that you have in the house. Let them know that you want everything to be prepped, and then you want to approve it before they move the items into the moving truck. This way you can see that is everything is protected as it needs to be, and you can see if anything seems unsafe before it's loaded.

Tented Options if Needed

Are you worried that the moving company may not be able to get the back of the moving truck into your garage, or that items will be exposed to water or damage if it's raining or snowing? If so, talk with the moving company about tents or portable tunnels they may use to make sure the items go from the house to the truck without concerns.

You want to know that your valuable paintings, musical instruments, furniture, and other items are going to be moved safely and that they will be handled with care. You don't want to try to save money and use a company that doesn't have good recommendations, or that isn't used to handling valuable items. Instead, take the time to find a moving company like M Dyer & Sons Inc that specializes in moving objects and items like the ones you have in your home.
