Track Your Every Move

SafeList can verify your inventory at the time of your move so you can track anything that might be lost or damaged.

Moving as stress-free as possible

While the internet is full of horror stories about moving, Halifax does have quite a few reliable and professional movers to help you get your belongings to your new home in a responsible manner.

Nevertheless, there are a few things your can do to make your move as stress-free as possible:

1. Ask friends for a referral to a moving company they respect.

Friends can give you an honest evaluation about their movers and tell you about their moving experience, but get more than one referral as you will still want to compare prices, check their availability and compare their moving services.

2. Do some of your own research on any moving company candidates.

You can check online to see what other people might be saying. However, keep in mind a complaint or two on the internet doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad moving company. All businesses experience some complaints both from reasonable and sometimes unreasonable people. If you are considering a company and see a complaint about them online just ask for their side of the story.

3. Check their insurance coverage and policies.

You want to know upfront how your belongings are protected if something should get damaged or lost.  For example, at what level would you be reimbursed if some was damaged beyond repair? Would you receive replacement costs or a depreciated value? Knowing what to expect is very important to avoid disputes.

4. Get a firm price.

Make sure your move estimator has an accurate understanding of everything that has to be moved, specific times for pick up and delivery, with both locations accessible at the agreed upon times. Get a firm quote, ask about any hidden fees and avoid open-ended hourly billing.

5. Have an accurate inventory.

Having movers pack for you can save you time, but it will also add to your costs of moving. Further, professional movers can note any damage, blemish or stain and ask you to sign off on these. If you don't have time to verify these items identified by industry codes, a dispute could arise if a item becomes more damaged during the move?

Whether a moving company is packing for you or not, it is wise to have your own inventory of your belongings, and the condition of them, when you are moving. SafeList can perform a home inventory and can verify your list and the condition of your items while moving within Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) or before you move from HRM to another location. If you move a lot, it is much easier to have one list that can updated and verified than to have to create a new list for every move.
