When working with your relocation specialist, make sure that you don’t forget to share with them all the details of your move. Not sharing certain information can make your move less than ideal. Below are a few things that you will want to communicate to your relocation specialist in order to make sure your move goes as smoothly as possible.
Access To Your New Home
Your relocation specialist will determine if a large truck can access your current home just by looking at it. However, if you are moving out of state or across the state, your relocation specialist will need information from you in order to determine if a large truck can access your new home.
Are there small roads leading to your new home? How long is your driveway? Can a truck access your driveway? Are there low hanging trees? Are you moving to a city or location that requires the truck hauling your shipment to have parking permits?
Giving this information to your specialist will eliminate the frustration you and your driver will face on day of delivery.
Make sure that you provide your relocation specialist with a cell phone number, your new home number, or the number of a close friend or relative. Your driver will need to contact you prior to delivery. Problems can arise if your driver cannot reach you on the day of delivery.
After two hours of trying to contact you, your driver has the option to put your household goods into storage. This allows him to continue on with his trip and make his next delivery in a timely manner.
If your goods are put into storage because your driver cannot reach you, you will be responsible for paying to get your goods out of storage. To relieve any undue stress and to prevent a pricey mistake, make sure that you are reachable in order to avoid unnecessary and costly fees.
The estimate that your relocation specialist provides to you includes a shipper inventory sheet. When your driver comes to load your household goods, he will use the inventory sheet to verify that additional items are not added to the shipment.
If you add additional items to your inventory, make sure to let your relocation specialist know. If you don’t communicate this to your relocation specialist, your driver may refuse to load your goods until your relocation specialist comes out to re-inventory and re-price your move.
