What to Look for When Hiring a Local Mover
Are you looking to hire a local mover?
When hiring a local mover there a few key points you need to be aware of when selecting your moving company.
1. INSURANCE – Make sure your local mover has insurance coverage, your mover should be able to provide you with their insurance certificate listing their cargo coverage. The minimum amount required is $100,000.00 per straight truck
2. WSIB – Work Safe Insurance coverage – Your mover must have WSIB insurance, this is the insurance coverage that protects you if your moving crew gets hurt on your property. Be careful and cautious, there are many movers operating without this coverage. If they get hurt on your property and they don’t have this coverage you will be liable for their injuries.
3. BBB – make sure your local mover is a member of the Better Business Bureau in good standing. In the event you have a problem with your local mover the BBB will assist you in resolving the matter – otherwise you’re on your own.
4. CAM – The Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) is the only legitimate regulatory body that ranks and rates movers. Make sure your local mover is a member of CAM in good standing before you buy their services.
You must know what to look for when hiring a local mover, and if you ensure that your local moving company complies with the 4 points above, you will be well on your way to a successful move.
Great shopping and good luck with your selection.
