Moving out of Norman is best done through a professional moving company. Finding a moving company to assist you might take some time because you’ll want to be sure that they are capable of meeting your needs before signing any contract. Once you have hired a moving company expect to see them at your door in roughly one month.
Items You Shouldn’t Load on to the Moving Truck
• Cleaning Chemicals
• Pieces of Art
• Propane Tanks
Storing Units Are Available
In some cases people who are moving will need somewhere safe to keep their household goods while they prepare their new homes to be inhabited. There are various types of storage units available including climate controlled units. There are also storage pods which can be delivered to your home and placed in your front yard.
Preparing Large Appliances for Transportation
Moving companies require that all appliances such as washers, refrigerators and dishwashers are dry. If you are planning on transporting a washing machine, don’t prepare it for transportation until a week prior to moving so that you can continue to do laundry. Most reputable moving companies have professionals that can properly service your appliances for a move as well.
Keeping Track of Your Goods
You can expect a phone call 24 hours before your property arrives to its destination. Make sure to give the mover a reliable number to reach you at so that they can keep you updated on the location of your goods. Also, make sure to prepare a legible inventory sheet so that you know the location of each individual item.
How Broken or Lost Items Are Handled
If something should get damaged or go missing during a move, contact the moving company and file and insurance claim. Moving companies are very prompt about returning phone calls in regards to missing or damaged property while under their care. Moving companies have insurance plans that you should consider purchasing so that you can be reimbursed in the event of an accident.
If you purchase full-coverage, the full value of your items will more than likely be covered. Transporting very valuable items in a personal vehicle is the most reliable way to get them to their destination. It doesn’t happen often, but accidents can happen even when all of the necessary safety steps are taken.
