Guide to Moving Company Documents

By January 27, 2013

Follow me on:

PaperworkI had a recent email from a reader asking, "What's all the paperwork for?". And if you've ever hired movers, you know exactly what she's asking. Before, during and after a move, you end up with so many documents it's difficult to know what each form is for.

So, if you're hiring movers, you should know the type of documents they need to provide and what each document is for. While contracts can be intimidating, knowing what each means and what you're signing is key to having a successful and smooth move.

(1) Eric says:

A moving company increased the cost of my move by over $3000 without justifying why. They said the final cost was due to the increased weight but I never saw or signed anything letting me know what the increased weight was. Is there anything I can do?

Thank you,

Hi Eric,

What did you original contract with the mover state in terms of a fee? Have you tried to resolve this with the mover? If you have and they’re not responding, contact the BBB and report the issue. Let the mover know that you’ll be contacting the BBB if this isn’t resolved.

Let me know what the mover says.
