Moving to a new place can be an overwhelming task. Aside from the preparations you have to deal with, you will soon face the uncertainty of adjusting to a new environment. To give you peace of mind during the move, here's some information you need to know:

Be informed of your rights and responsibilities before selecting a mover
Knowing your rights and responsibilities is very important before moving your household goods. At Uber Movers, we discuss basic information that will help you understand the required documents that you have to sign.

Read and understand all information provided by the mover
When you finally decided to choose our moving services, we will give you these basic documents as part of your move:

  • Estimates - In this document, you will find all charges for services we will perform.
  • Order for Service - This is a list of all the services we will perform and shows the dates your household goods will be picked up and delivered.
  • Bill of Lading - This is the contract between you and Uber Movers as well as a receipt of your belongings. You should be able to receive a partially completed copy of the bill of lading. We will hand this over to you before we leave your residence of origin.
  • Inventory List - You will also get a receipt showing each item shipped and its condition. You will receive a written copy of the inventory upon agreeing with the description (whether the goods are in good condition or not) and after your household goods are loaded. 

Keep in touch with your mover
Get the driver's name and contact information, and give him your contact numbers. Also, confirm directions to your new home with your driver.

During the moving day, make sure you arrive to your new home before the movers to avoid additional charges for waiting if you are late. Once you receive your household goods, check the condition of each and note them on the inventory form.You can personally report damages or loss to our representative. To avoid possible damage to your TV and other appliances, let them adjust to the room temperature before using.

At Uber Movers, we treat your belongings like our own. Let us handle them with care! Contact us today at +1 866-386-8237 for a free estimate on interstate moving.
