Rules and Regulations!

residential moving truck

Every legal interstate mover is required, by law, to provide potential shippers with literature that outlines the movers responsibilities and the shippers responsibilities when moving. One of the most important topics covered is claims, and the most important issue on claims covered, is that when you receive your shipment. ANY MISSING ITEMS OR DAMAGE TO FURNITURE AND BOXES MUST BE NOTED ON THE INVENTORY BEFORE SIGNING. This is not difficult to do and is the cornerstone in any claims filing. This is the procedure for any shipment, going anywhere, with any company. Whether you ship with the USPS, UPS, FedEx or any other company shipping anything anywhere in the world. There are no excuses! “There wasn’t time to check everything” is not a valid reason. During the move you have one job, the move. If you need help, get it. Call upon your family for assistance if necessary. Depending on the size of your shipment, the delivery will take hours. Get organized and eliminate distractions. Do not sign anything till your are satisfied that everything is properly notated. If there is an issue, call your Relocation Consultant.
