Residential movers in Kansas City are plentiful but not all services are the same. If you are planning to move in 2018, you need to know what to look for in order to choose the right company.

A quality moving company will conduct a thorough inventory of your property, and provide an estimate based largely on the bulk and weight of the property being moved. You should check the estimate closely to make sure it is as accurate as possible. Getting more than one estimate is recommended, checking the services offered and making cost comparisons.

If you choose to have the residential movers pack for you, ask questions about the packer’s experience. Most employees of moving companies are very careful and respectful of their customer’s possessions, but not all are, so make sure you don’t hire movers with questionable practices.

Make sure the company is licensed and appropriately insured should anything go wrong. You may want to check with the Better Business Bureau for residential moving companies in Kansas City to see how they rank, checking for complaints or lawsuits for damages or recovery. Ask for references from customers who have recently used their services, and follow up by calling to verify, asking direct questions about their experience.

Make sure the moving company provides you with an itemized list of items they will be moving. If there is a loss of any of your property it will not be covered by insurance if it is not on the list. Read the contract closely, and never sign it if it is left blank to be ‘filled in later.’ This contract should list all fees and charges as well as the date of pick-up and date of delivery.

Avoid paying residential movers in advance. You lose control of the transaction that way and you could risk the loss of your belongings. You may be required to pay a deposit, but it should be a reasonable amount.

Upon completion of the move, you should examine each box or crate and check for any damaged items and make a note of it on the residential mover’s copy of the bill of lading before you sign it. Without it you are not likely to recover any damages from the insurance company. Use a credit card for payment upon completion of the move after you have checked everything.
