Contact our team to find out more about how we can help you! Y- Your Responsibilities When you’re planning your move there is a lot to think about, from organizing and packing, to making travel arrangements, transferring utilities, dealing with real estate transactions or lease agreements, and the like. Did you know that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires all relocation companies to provide clients with a document called “Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move,” which outlines all the things to consider when planning and preparing for your relocation?Some highlights include things like: Use only a licensed Household Goods Carrier or mover; Obtain a FREE written estimate of cost – a professional, qualified mover will never charge you for an estimate; NEVER pack jewelry, money, important papers, medicines or other valuable articles on the mover’s truck; Make sure you read, sign and receive a Bill of Lading from your mover which serves as your contract with the mover and states the services to be performed, charges for the move and their liability for loss or damages; Check the condition of your property before you sign a delivery receipt; In the event of loss or damage, a claim must be filed, in writing with the mover – repairing or replacing an item before consulting with the mover may jeopardize your potential settlement. If you’d like to learn more about Your Rights and Responsibilities when moving you can locate that information here:: http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/protect-your-move. Z- Zebras (& Pets!) When moving, its often easy to get caught up in the packing and planning for your family, but what about your four-legged family members? While it might be easy to physically transport your pet to your new home, have you made all the other preparations to ensure that your transition to your new home is easy for your furry friends? Check out these tips from United Van Lines about all the ins and outs of relocating your pet. If you are planning a relocation and are unable to transport your pet yourself, we would love to help you locate the perfect pet relocation service to get them safely to your new home. Just make sure to talk with your move coordinator about these services during pre-planning to make sure there is enough time for the appropriate arrangements to be made.
