When Moving it is very important that you know your Rights and Responsibilities and know how to act in a problematic situation with your moving carrier. Hiring a quality mover is a hard task but you should know your priorities in advance.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) consumer protection regulations arrange rules which must be followed by each licensed and insured moving company providing Interstate Transportation of Household Goods as a Certified Moving Provider. You can find all the information in their website.
Some helpful information you should look at:
A binding estimate is an agreement made that supposes you and your mover are bound by the charges. It ensure the total cost of the move based upon the quantities and services on your mover’s estimate.
A non-binding estimate is what your mover assume the total cost will be for the move, established upon the estimated weight of the shipment and the additional services demanded. A non-binding estimate is not binding on your moving company.
Pickup, transportation and delivery
You can require from your moving company to prove availability of arranged pickup and delivery dates. Also, you have the right to observe when your shipment is weighed. If you have any concerns, you may request a re-weigh of your shipment.
Arguments during moving
Movers must offer you a dispute settlement program as an option, in case of arguments, which arranges settling loss or damage claims. Ask your mover for more details. You should know your moving rights if any troubles occur. You might want to add a moving insurance that will be additional to your overall cost of movers.
Take time to read all the important information. Knowing your rights when relocating is a must do job. Moving is stressing and frustrating, and you want to finish it fast, but when it comes to your belongings, you definitely don’t want to make mistakes that could cost you a fortune.
