MOVING
WHEN PLANNING A MOVE THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS TO CONSIDER:

- USE A COMPANY THAT HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR A WHILE OR CAN OFFER REFERENCES WHICH YOU SHOULD VERIFY.

- CALL THE MOTOR TRANSPORT BOARD AT 1-204-945-8915 TO ENSURE THAT THE COMPANY HAS THE NECESSARY OPERATING AUTHORITIES.

- MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH INSURANCE THE CARRIER HAS AND WHAT IT COVERS. YOU MAY NEED TO PURCHASE EXTRA INSURANCE TO PROTECT YOUR POSSESSIONS.

- OBTAIN SEVERAL WRITTEN ESTIMATES, KEEPING IN MIND THAT THE LOWEST BID MAY NOT NECESSARILY BE THE BEST WHEN YOU CONSIDER INSURANCE, TRAINING, EXPERIENCE, QUALITY OF VEHICLE, ETC. VERIFY THAT THE ESTIMATE INVENTORY INCLUDES ALL THE ITEMS YOU WANT MOVED.

- MAKE SURE THAT ANY ORAL PROMISES ARE CONFIRMED IN WRITING. MAKE SURE THE CONTRACT SPECIFIES THE DATES AND TIMES OF YOUR MOVE. DO NOT SIGN ANY CONTRACT WITH SECTIONS LEFT BLANK. CAREFULLY READ AND UNDERSTAND THE CONTRACT BEFORE SIGNING.

- IF DAMAGE OR LOSS OCCURS, HAVE THE DRIVER MAKE A SPECIAL NOTATION ON THE INVENTORY AND/OR DELIVERY RECEIPT, THEN PROMPTLY NOTIFY THE COMPANY IN WRITING, KEEPING A COPY FOR YOUR OWN FILES.

- SUPERVISE THE LOADING AND UNLOADING OF THE TRUCK OR ARRANGE FOR SOMEONE ELSE WHO HAS A COPY OF YOUR INVENTORY TO DO SO.

- IF YOUR BELONGINGS WILL BE LEFT OVERNIGHT OR SHORT TERM IN A TRUCK, CONSIDER SUPPLYING YOUR OWN LOCKS AND KEEPING YOUR OWN KEYS.

- REMEMBER, IF THE MOVING COMPANY PACKS AND UNPACKS EVERYTHING, THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE; IF YOU PACK OR UNPACK THINGS, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE.
