Anything Goes Moving
WORST MOVING COMPANY EVER! I actually saw them drop four pieces of furniture, completely destroying one of them. They glued the others back together (as though that would make it okay). They threw an antique rocking horse from the 1940's into their truck - no box, no moving blanket, nothing. It’s broken and worthless now. And when they moved things into my home, they didn't do anything to protect the brand new flooring from their dollies and dirty shoes. They just ground the dirt into my hand-scraped hardwoods and carpeting. They left gouges and scrapes in the walls all over my house. They had taken the handles off my refrigerator, and didn’t put them back on correctly. I had to make them come back to hook up the washer and dryer before they left. Then they left empty soda bottles and food wrappers from their lunch in the front yard when they left. When I complained to the owner, he sent me a check for $87 and sent me a text that said to “read the contract” and "grow up".

The men were gentlemen, careful with our stuff and hustled.
Tips & Advices
Yes, it’s best to empty drawers, wardrobes and chests before a move. Items always get knocked around a bit, and doors can fly open even if they’ve been taped. In fact, more often than not, movers will want to remove the drawers from a dresser--or disassemble the wardrobe to be more space-efficient.
Yes, it is customary to tip movers, but the amount varies widely. For full-service moves, a 5 percent tip is suggested, although, for extra service, some people go up to 10 percent . For small local movers, you can give each mover $10 for a few-hour job, or $20-$40 for jobs that take longer.
A bill of lading is the legal contract for the move. It provides a detailed receipt, in addition to a contract between the client and the mover. It authorizes the mover to transport the goods from one specific point to another, and it outlines the exact scope of services, with cost breakdown for those services. It also provides an itemized list of the inventory, and carrier liability protection for each declared item. Finally, it specifies the payment arrangement. Make sure to go over your itemized list extremely carefully before finalizing the paperwork--and get a copy of the full document. A good mover will go over everything on the bill of lading with the customer.
There are several items that moving companies will not move – those items will be listed on a document as “non-allowables.” These items typically fall in three categories: perishables, sentimental/personal items, and hazardous material. Perishables are food and plants. Sentimental/personal value is up to the client to decide, but usually includes jewelry, medical and dental records, personal paperwork, valuables and collectibles. Hazardous material is the tricky category, since it includes a lot of everyday items found in the garage, garden or kitchen. For example, cleaning liquids and pesticides both are considered non-allowable by many companies. Some go so far as to disallow nail polish and batteries.
A binding estimate means that the moving company cannot charge more than the stated amount, though they can lower the final bill if the scope of the job was smaller than expected. A non-binding moving estimate is more likely to wind up costing more than expected, since the movers can increase their rates for unforeseen variables like stairs, “long carry” and materials.
