These tips from the experts at Sir Move will make your relocation a smooth moving journey!
Relocating to another country is an exciting adventure, but you’ll have to tackle the part of moving your belongings to a new home. Though it may seem like a mammoth and even impossible task, fret not, this guide will have you covered!
Where do you begin? Here are some tips from the experts from Sir Move.
Get quotations from a few companies
You can choose up to five companies to get a quotation from, and it’s best to get at least three. This way, you have data points to compare and shortlist them based on your needs.
Ask these questions
Before the move, it’s standard practice for the movers to conduct physical site surveys as a complimentary service. Some companies even offer virtual site surveys via video for further convenience if you’re time-strapped. But wait, don’t confirm your survey appointment yet – there are three important questions to ask:
1. Are you a FIDI/FAIM company?
2. Are you a full-service mover?
3. Will you handle my shipment door-to-door?
If their answer is yes to all three, you’re well covered as it ensures that your moving company is reliable.
Preparation is key
Of course, you have to prepare before the site survey, not just the physical items in your house but your questions too. Your list of questions could include checking if the mover can meet specific requirements like pet moving, protection and packing for fragile or bulky items, and other services that you need.
Check the reviews and credentials
After shortlisting a number of companies, ask around or search online for reviews from other people. Also, do your research to confirm their FIDI/ FAIM accreditation. This is to ensure that they are compliant with the requirements as assessed by independent auditors.
