It depends. Some moving companies have a minimum delivery time, but they usually only do so weekly, if that. Some do have a minimum delivery time, but they often require you to make a deposit before they can be scheduled for. What is important is that they are scheduled to arrive within the time frame you specified and they are not too far away from what you specified.
In most cases, if your moving company is too far away from your residence, they will not even bother to arrive at least a day late. They have a good reason why they are taking so long though. They are probably hoping that you will have more things to do when your house is being moved.
This is probably why many moving companies offer to do all of the moving for your house for free. Because so many people are moving their homes, they have all these free hours they can use. I have often had to ask moving companies if they would be willing to do things for me that I have already told them will not happen, and they always have this response: Oh, sure, and I will just do everything for you.
Moving companies are like the Uber for house movers. They are great at making you feel like you are getting a huge discount by offering to do the moving for free and then charging you for it. But the truth is that you are probably going to end up with a larger bill because you are moving your stuff all over the place.
Moving companies will always have a few tricks up their sleeve. My favorite is to tell you to call them on the day you move. I know that sounds crazy, but a single call will give a moving company a chance to get an estimate on a price. They will then make a phone call that will guarantee they are going to be there the next day, ready to take care of whatever you needed.
I would have to agree with that. It’s the same principle as a mortgage company. You give them your information and they give you a list of things to keep. I say it’s a lot less stressful to get a quote and they are usually willing to negotiate. You might also consider being proactive by putting in a good word for them with your bank, as well as with your new landlord.
I have no problem with the above. Its a great way to make sure your moving company is on track. I have personally had instances where I just called and left a voice mail that I had been unable to get through. I have had moving companies call me back and say that they were on the phone with me and I didn’t get to them. I had to get a new cell phone number.
I understand that there are some people who feel that getting a good moving company is just for show. I don’t get that. I have had moving companies do things like send me a signed contract and a copy of their lease and then the next day call me to confirm there were no errors in the process. I have had a moving company tell me they were on the phone with me and I didnt hear them. They know that their reputation is important to me.
I was with my friend David, and we were moving into a new house. We were on our way to the town of Chatham, Michigan. David had been working with his moving company for a few months. I was new to the area and didn’t know much about moving companies. I figured they wouldnt call me for a few weeks and then call me to confirm the fact that they were still working with me. I was wrong.
As it turns out, the company I was moving to was working with my moving company for about a year and then decided to change their business model. After that, I was on my own. I started out with my moving company in the hopes that I would have a long relationship. I was wrong.
