Dallas Movers- How to Plan Your Move
Dallas Movers Tips How To Plan Ahead
Summer time is the busiest time of the year for Dallas Movers to nove you . In addition, the beginning and end of each month are traditionally busier than mid-month, regardless of the season. If you are planning to move during one of the times, plan well in advance so your Dallas Movers schedule will fit yours.
Now it is time to contact the Dallas Movers. Inform them of your destination and the timing of your move. Ask Dallas Movers to provide you with a written estimate, and have them explain the services listed in the estimate in detail. Carefully compare each estimate to see which company best suits your needs and budget.

Dallas Movers Packing Tips
Proper packing by a trained packer using specially designed cartons and materials is crucial to a good move. Schedule packing with the Dallas Movers a day or two before the moving van is loaded. If you are packing yourself, it is never too soon to start. While packing yourself can save money, Dallas Movers will not usually accept liability for damage to items packed by owners.
Be present when your goods are packed. An inventory of your goods will be made and it is important to resolve any disagreements prior to signing the inventory. Make sure all copies are legible and all items are numbered. Have valuable items listed separately. Some appliances may require servicing prior to the move. Your Dallas Movers can schedule these services for you.
There are several options for insuring your goods. All household goods shipments move under limited liability. However, you may purchase additional liability coverage from your Dallas Movers.
Planning Your Moving Day
Your Dallas Movers may ask you to select several consecutive days during which your goods can be loaded and a second series of dates during which your goods can be delivered to your new home. A spread of days gives you and your Dallas Movers the flexibility needed to keep your move on schedule. Remember that summer months are the busiest, and some Dallas Movers offer lower prices between the months of October and April.
- Be on hand when the Dallas Movers arrive
- Discuss the delivery arrangements fully with your Dallas Movers.
- Have beds stripped and ready to be packed.
- Save your energy – let the Dallas Movers moving crew disassemble goods.
- Read the Dallas Movers Bill of Lading before you sign it.
- Tell your Dallas Movers how to reach you at your destination.
- Keep in contact with the Dallas Movers agent at your destination while you are in transit.
Dallas Movers Delivery
Generally, your belongings will be transported in a van along with those of other families in the same general direction. This helps to keep your costs down. Delivery is made on any of the several consecutive days agreed upon before the move began. Make sure the Dallas Movers knows how to contact you to schedule actual delivery. If you cannot be reached at destination, the Dallas Movers may place your shipment in storage to avoid delaying other shipments. This can mean additional charges for storage and handling.
Upon delivery, check your goods for damage. Do not sign the inventory until you have inspected your furniture and the exterior of the cartons.
Dallas Movers Claims
If any of your household goods are damaged or lost, report the facts promptly and in detail on the van driver’s copy (original) of the inventory sheet before you sign it. If you notice damage after unpacking, a claim must be filed within nine months after delivery. However, it is to your advantage to report damage as soon as possible. The Dallas Movers must acknowledge receipt of your claim within 30 days and must deny or make an offer within 120 days of receipt of your claim. When making a claim or considering a settlement offer, keep in mind the amount of liability that you declared on your shipment. For example, if the value declared on your shipment was $5,000, the Dallas Movers maximum liability for loss or damage to the articles in your shipment is $5,000. Claims for more than this amount will be declined because they are in excess of the Dallas Movers liability that you declared on your shipment.
