Before hiring a moving company in Jacksonville FL, it’s important to make sure the mover is properly licensed and insured. Besides the technicalities of licenses and insurance, consumers need to use common sense when hiring a moving company. In addition to being expensive, hiring movers also grants you less control over your move as a whole and – if you hire a rogue moving company – could potentially open up the door for scams.

I recommend learning about your state’s individual regulations before hiring a moving company. Some important questions to ask before hiring a moving company in Jacksonville FL:

  • Will you pack specialty items, such as TVs and electronics?
  • Will this moving company be delivering my items or will another party be delivering them?
  • Will my items be transferred to another party along the way? Do you subcontract your moves?
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
  • How long will the move take?
  • How do I contact you and the driver during the move?
  • Do you have a cancellation policy?
  • Are there any restrictions on what and how I pack?
  • Are there any potential charges I’m not already aware of? What additional moving supplies will I be paying for?

Of course, tipping is never mandatory and it’s not necessarily expected – but if you’re satisfied with a job well done, it’s a nice way to thank your mover for all of their hard work and efficiency.
