After buying a home in York County, there’s a good chance that you’ll need to hire a moving service in order to move from your old home to your new one. However, keep in mind that not every mover is the same. This means that you’ll want to make sure that you read over the paperwork carefully. The following are a few things you should know:
- Estimates - There are two types of estimates – non-binding estimates and binding estimates. Non-binding estimates could end up being way different than the final cost because the costs will be determined by the weight of your shipment. A binding estimate tells you what the cost will be up front.
- Bill of lading – This is your contract. Make sure it includes information such as the mover’s contact and license information, your contact information, your origin and destination address, the services and rates, the time frame of the services to be rendered, the payment method and the insurance coverage and dispute settlement.
- Inventory list – Make sure the inventory list and condition listed is correct beforehand.
