No, unless it is a binding agreement between the two of you. This can be done when you ask them for an official print out of the estimate, binding them to move the items that you have for the price that they originally stated.

What Information is the Mover Supposed to Provide Me With?

When it comes to working with a moving company, you want to make sure that you get the following information from them to ensure that the move goes as smoothly as it possibly can.

  • The binding agreement between the two of you, which is normally in a contract with the estimate that they gave you
  • A copy of “Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move” from the Department of Transportation
  • Settlement and arbitration information for a neutral dispute
  • Contact information of the movers should you have questions, concerns, complaints or other inquiries later on down the road or during the move

You want to ensure that they provide you with all of the necessary paperwork and are completely honest with the work that they do. This might take some digging, but knowing who you’re hiring is essential.

What is the Order of Service?

This is a lot like a contract, giving the movers permission to move and ship the items that you need to have taken out of the old home, and put into the new one. This is you signing off on having them handle the items, so that nothing is disputed about hiring them in the future.

What Happens if My Items Do Not Show Up Like They are Supposed To?

There is a specific time frame for which the movers have to get your items and then have them brought to the new place. You’re generally given the dates for the move, and they will stay within them. However, if they are delayed and beyond these dates it is ideal to speak with the moving company. If it is a intrastate move, then normal occurrences and delays such as weather problems can cause something like this to happen, and it is perfectly acceptable and generally outlined in your contract.
