BLT Packers and Movers Help Desks When Hiring Movers Ask Questions Help you to choose Right Movers

Before you even have the moving companies do a walk-through of your home, ask these questions while you have the movers on Survey at your Home . This is your chance to interview the moving company to see if they are going to meet your needs.

1)   Registration Number :- The moving company should have a registration number with the Service Tax No. (Under Goods Transportation Agency). You can check online with http://www.aces.gov.in/
2)   Rates and Estimates :- Ask the company what there rate is; most companies will provide a rate for Sharing Vehicles & Dedicated Vehicle. For short-distances You should select Indusial Vehicle,& For Long Distance You can go for Share Vehicle if You don’t having full house hold or costly items. whereas the estimate can depending on the type the carrier provides. Keep in mind that the moving company must give you an estimate in writing and they must provide you with a copy. The estimate must include all charges and both you and the mover must sign it for it to be an agreement. The estimate must also indicate the method of payment and be dated.
3)   Additional Fees :- Find out if there are any additional fees or when additional fees apply. Some companies will charge extra for awkward items, or if the destination does not have easy access, or if the load has to be hand-carried over a certain distance. If your old or new residence is not accessible for a large carrier truck or van, you may need to have the mover arrange for a shuttle service, which will also incur additional costs. Additional costs may also include fuel surcharges or transportation surcharges if you are moving to a remote area. In addition, if your belongings cannot be unloaded on arrival, they may need to be stored. Storage-in-transit fees will be charged along with warehouse handling charges. Try to avoid either by ensuring your new residence is ready on time.
4)  Additional Transfers :- For long distance moves some companies may transfer your belongings from one truck to another. Additional transfers increase the possibility of damage and loss. Keep this in mind when you are choosing your carrier and ask beforehand. Also, if you are moving during the winter or rainy season, find out if the company protects against water damage.
5)  Insurance :- Ask detailed questions about insurance. The moving company will provide insurance at an additional cost. Insurance is usually based on goods Nature, so you will need to assess the value of your goods versus what the insurance policy will provide should your belongings arrive damaged or not at all. Standard coverage is 1.5% on Value and is usually not enough to cover the true cost of the damaged item. Before you purchase insurance, look about insurance company and take policy before starting your Packing.
6)  Packing/Storage Services :- Find out how items are protected and labeled. Most companies will shrink-wrap your sofa and provide a free blanket wrap service; smaller companies may charge for this service. Ask how items are labeled and how they will be identified on arrival. Make sure you keep an accurate list of all your items, number of boxes, single pieces and odds and ends. In addition, ask up front if the moving company expects appliance service charges http://www.bltpackers.com, and if they do, ask about their policies for preparing appliances for transport to see if you can either do it yourself or find someone who'll do it at no cost. In most cases, companies don't charge for standard major appliances, but will for any extra item.
7)  If you require storage, ask the company if they provide storage service. Usually, the larger companies do and this can save you time and money by having the truck drop off your items for you. It's a good idea to check out the storage facility beforehand.
Complaints and Claims

Ask the company if they have any unresolved complaints or claims against them. Most will give you a history of complaints and claims, and if they were resolved satisfactory for the client. Details won't necessarily be provided, but if there are some outstanding issues, ask for more information about why and the nature of the complaint and claim. Also, ask how many claims and complaints they've had; this is a good indication of their incident record.

Ask for Referrals/Recommendations

Most reliable companies will automatically provide you with letters of happy clients. And although anyone with a printer and computer could generate supportive documents, you can usually assume they are legitimate and factual.
