You will wonder how to differentiate between a legal moving company and one that is not. From here we give you several guidelines for you to find out if you have all the guarantees to carry out your move in conditions.
Generally, all moving companies should have a web page where you can see where they are located, as well as various forms of contact (email, telephone, office addresses or storage). If the company that has passed your budget criteria but has no website you can start to distrust. Another of the parameters to take into account is to check reviews, the comments and opinions that this company receives on the internet (although many companies have several names for the same company of movers).
As for the budget, they will always have to go to the home to see in situ what furniture and equipment to move, as well as access to the building or your room, to be able to make a budget closed etc. Budgets by email without going to visit are unprofessional.
There are several factors, clues and differences that will make us suspect if a legal removal company is or is not. The first thing is to make sure that the removal company has a headquarters or physical offices, the second is that they have a fleet of properly labeled vehicles and the third is to sign a contract with the mover in which both the name of The moving company, as its location and tax data.
Once you have passed these 3 steps we can be sure that it is a legal moving company. In addition it will be advisable to see the opinions and comments that other private individuals have written about the removal company.
Over the last ten years, we have been seeing how pirate removal companies have proliferated exponentially, with what this entails. They do not have a company, they do not have physical offices and therefore they do not offer any type of insurance that can take care of any damage that could occur in our furniture and fixtures.
That is why we recommend that you choose to local packers and movers, whether professional or self-employed, who have their physical existence and certificates and papers in order, this way you will save you scares and unpleasant surprises.
A good way to opt for one or another agency and know if it is a legal apartment moving service or not is going to their offices to sign the contract of moving, this way we know of a physical place where to be able to claim in case Necessary. Of course, in the contract, must appear all the furniture and equipment to be transferred, the packaging to be used, the length of the move, whether the company will add boxes or not, the price and payment methods and of course the compulsory insurance that every legal removal company should have.
Finally we must take into account that we should not only look at the net price of the move, but also the boxes, packaging, etc, we will charge the removal companies even if the naked eye is not seen in the budget.
