Questions to Ask Movers—Part 5

We are pleased to wrap up this “Questions to Ask” blog series with three more important questions to ask when shopping for a moving company. At Plantation Moving & Storage, Inc., we want our customers in Charleston, Summerville, North Charleston, Goose Creek, Mount Pleasant, and Columbia to be informed and educated when they make their moving-company decision.

What is your pricing policy?

Many moving companies will only provide customers with an estimate of what the move will cost. We do not give estimates. We provide guaranteed pricing. Once we do a walk through and learn about the customer’s needs, we provide an exact cost of the move, and we guarantee that the price won’t change.

How far in advance should I schedule my move?

In the summer months or if you’re working around holidays, you generally should start setting up your move three or four weeks in advance. During other times of the year, you should start two or three weeks in advance. We usually have the availability to do short-notice moves. When we provide a guaranteed price, we want to be within about three or four weeks of the move.

Do you provide insurance?

Yes. We provide actual cash value insurance up to $50,000 for every move at no charge to our customer. Keep in mind that this is not replacement value. Replacement value coverage is available for an additional cost. But keep in mind that the actual cash value insurance we provide is much better than the 60-cents-per-pound coverage that most other companies provide.
