Hiring Movers

I was so excited about moving after have gone through the death of my husband, I failed myself. Since I had a short distance for moving, I decided to use someone local. Little did I know he was a crook. Due to the events of my life and present state of mine and everything that was going on in my life, I failed to check the truck when he said he was finished.

After looking back on some pictures of my old house, I realized that I did not have a lot of my things in the new home. At the time of the move I was missing some kitchen items, but did not think much of it at the time and went out to buy new.

The pictures I looked at started ringing a bell in my head, "Where is my folded room divider?", "Where is my little cabinet with shelves?" "What happened to my old Poloroid camera?", etc. Nothing he failed to bring everything in.

Now a tip to all. Before paying the movers, check out the truck and make sure it is EMPTY. A hard lesson learned.

If you are moving long distance using a professional mover, try to make itemized list of what is in the boxes. We lost 9 boxes on our last move and lost money from insurance because we could not tell them exactly what was in each box.

I just had a nice surprise this morning. The company which handled our move from Houston, Texas to Knoxville, Tennessee sent an email saying we have a refund due us. They processed over 200 dollars back to the card we used to pay them.

If you are hiring movers, be sure to ask them what their insurance covers before packing anything yourself. Quite often, they will only cover boxes that they have packed.
