Every year, thousands of people move either in or out of the UAE. But even with this huge number, going through the move successfully is more or less like a miracle. This clearly shows how important it is to hire a reputable removal company when moving in or out of Sharjah.
However, the fact that a large number of people move every year doesn’t mean that all the companies offering relocation services are reputable. There are actually a few things that you need to look into in order to ensure that you are working with a reliable, reputable, and professional company. In this article, we are going to discuss important things you should consider when looking for movers and packers in Sharjah.
- The moving inventory
A professional relocation company won’t just surprise you on the day of the move. Rather, they will visit your premises a day before your relocation and take inventory of your items. If you live in the countryside or a place far from their premises, a video survey is also allowed. The person taking the inventory should be thorough and also look into places like the garage, cupboards, and bookcases among other places. Actually, it is the total weight of your items that will be used to determine the relocation cost. Therefore, ensure that the figures taken are as accurate as possible.
2. The deposit
The best movers in Sharjah do not demand upfront fees before carrying out the task they are required to do, i. e relocating your family and belongings. As a client, you should only agree to pay after delivery. If you agree to pay any money before the relocation, then be sure that you won’t have full control over the items anymore. If you really need to pay upfront due to one reason or another, ensure that -you use your credit card for easier tracking-just in case of anything.
- Have they changed their name?
This sounds weird, but it really happens. We have had cases of relocation companies doing business under another name which is really not theirs. So before hiring a relocation company, ensure that they have an address on their website. The company should also be insured and licensed. Additionally, you should also check their reputation online. Don’t work with them is past clients were not satisfied with the services offered by the company.
Do you have friends, colleagues, or family members who have hired a removal company before? How was their experience? If they were satisfied with what the company had to offer, ask for their number and call them straight away. You can also check the company’s website to get more information about their reputation and the type of relocation services they offer.
- Avoid paying for packing
Packing the items on your own will save you the relocation cost. But in this case, the mover won’t be held responsible if any issue like breakage happens during transit. But if the movers do the packing for you, the relocation price will increase since you will also have to pay for the packaging materials, labor, and time.
If you feel that the movers can pack better than you, then ensure that they have the right experience. Most relocation companies can take good care of your belongings and hardly do we get cases of breakages and theft. But since these are your items, you are the one who knows how delicate or costly they are and can, therefore, do the job better than anybody else. As someone once said, never take any chances!
