Schea Van Lines strongly recommends the following when hiring a moving company to handle your families relocation:
Choose a firm that is family owned. There are many large corporate companies that have lost the personal touch somewhere in their expansion. The personal touch can only be provided by those who truly take pride in their work. Family owned and operated moving companies generally have these values.
Schea Van Lines is family owned and operated.
Have a representative from the potential moving company come out for a visit of the home. This in home visit is important for two reasons. First, you will be able to see what type of individual the company has chose to represent them. Is this person knowledgeable? Second, you will have a better idea as to what the service will cost upon completion. When hiring any contractor, surprises are never a good thing. Schedule an in home estimate to prevent any surprises from happening.
Schea Van Lines is more than happy to send a representative to your home or office at anytime.
– Be certain to verify licensing and insurance information. Is this moving company licensed to move locally? Is this moving company licensed to move across state lines? To be licensed, a moving company must possess adequate insurance. This keeps illegitimate firms from marketing to consumers who could be then subjected to scams. State licensing also requires that a company possesses workers compensation. Not only is workers compensation the only humane way to operate, it also protects the consumer. If a worker is injured at your home, you could be responsible for medical bills if the company you selected does not possess workers comp.
Not only is Schea Van Lines licensed properly to relocate throughout the state, Schea Van Lines also retains authority to relocate homes and businesses throughout the United States. Workers comp carried on each staff member. All possessions handled by Schea Van Lines are also insured.
– Visit the moving companies office. How a company values their own home will speak a great deal as to how they will value yours. This will give you the opportunity to meet staff, view equipment, and get an educated idea as to how this organization operates.
Schea Van Lines welcomes existing and potential clients at our office anytime. Our staff are uniformed, friendly, and full time. Our equipment is the best the industry has to offer. The floor of our facility is spotless. We take a great deal of pride in these values we possess.
– Be certain you are completely familiar with a moving companies billing structure. Additionally, have the billing terms and conditions in writing prior to the scheduled move date. Unfortunately, there are many illegitimate “moving companies” that do not operate honestly. To properly protect yourself, be certain to have in writing the billing terms.
Schea Van Lines provides every client with billing terms and conditions in writing. This prevents any confusion on the actual move day. Transparency is one of our strongest values.
– Research reviews prior to contracting the moving company you select. Online reviews may not always be completely accurate, but they can show a trend. If a company has the same complaint repeatedly reported about them, that company may have a reoccurring problem.
Schea Van Lines encourages clients to research our reviews. We take pride in our service. This pride is apparent in our reviews.
