Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
One of the moves that all team members remember happened on the day when super storm Sandy hit Virginia. Not only the moving crews but also the warehouse people, office people, estimators and managers and supervisors worked on one project. We had to move a residence form Potomac MD to our storage facility before the storm hits. 5700 sq.ft. home has been packed, prepared for the international shipping and moved to our warehouse by 2 PM. It took us less than 7 hours to do that. It was a very exciting and challenging experience.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
We know how challenging is to choose a moving company. We are talking about the people who are going to walk in to your HOME and handle all your personal belongings including the once with the sentimental value. There are so many questions to be asked, there are so many concerns. Whether my movers be on time, whether they are even going to show up, will they be careful to protect my home and belongings, will they put my furniture where I want them to. With G&J Moving and Storage the answer is YES. We have successfully moved over 2800 families in the past year.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Below is a list of questions you should ask your mover as you shop for the perfect fit. Is your moving company licensed? Does your company charge by the piece or by the hour? Do you have a minimum charge? How do you charge after the minimum? Do you charge extra for larger items such as piano moving, large screen televisions, or any extra flights of stairs to move items on? (This is not unusual.) Do you charge for the travel time from your office to my home? Do you charge extra for moves in the evenings or on the weekends? What payment options do you offer? (Many companies require a deposit.) Do you have full-time employees or do you use temps and day labor? (Be cautious of companies that use temps or day labor because they may not be properly insured.) Are items insured during the move? (Even if a mover is bonded and insured, it doesn't mean that your items are covered during the move. Some states require that a company put a valuation of 60¢ per pound of coverage.) What kind of cancellation policy do you offer? (You should always be able to cancel or postpone until a few days before your move.) Do you offer free moving quote? (For homes larger than three bedrooms, try to get an on-site estimate done. Be thorough in identifying all the items you need moved. Don't forget the basement and the attic.) Do you have any suggestions on how to make the move easier? (Movers who care about customer service and making your move a positive experience will do all they can to help you.) Do you have a contact number for the day of the move should any challenges arise?
