Moving requires preparation, organization and choosing a reputable mover. It is, therefore, beneficial to know relevant facts about moving companies.
Moving companies are required by law to provide you with the booklet “Your Rights and Responsibilities when You Move”. If they don’t do it, it may indicate the moving company is not legitimate. It also illegal for a company to hold customers stuff hostage in order to ask for higher payment after the move is complete.
Moving companies include the cost of packing, loading, transporting, unloading and if you like arranging your stuff in one bill. This may be helpful and pocket-friendly than renting a truck and moving everything by yourself.
