Frequently Asked Questions
We make paying for our moving services fast and convenient. We accept cash, credit or debit. We would love to accept rain checks but unfortunately we can’t. Payment for our moving services is due in full when the move is completed.
While gratuity is optional, the simple answer to this question is YES. Our movers here at Busy B’s Moving give 120% on every job site they arrive on. We all know that moving can be physically and mentally exhausting. Often times customers feel inclined to add a gratuity at the end of the bill of lading, while others do not or just don’t know that they are able to. Either way our movers do not disclose that you can add an extra gratuity or a tip at the end of the bill because we believe that they will meet your needs and go above and beyond to make sure you are completely satisfied with your moving experience.
We pride ourselves on being in constant contact with our customers. If there are any problems that arise with arrival times, changes in schedule, or bad weather conditions, Busy B’s Moving will notify you right away.
Sometimes accidents do happen, but with our trained professionals we keep the possibility of damaging any of our customers property to a bare minimum. If one occurs we will file a claim right on the spot and notify you right away. Here at Busy B’s Moving we are fully insured for any possible scenario.
Some essential items you may want to keep with you include items you would need to use on a typical day. Those may be paper towel, toilet paper, towels, chargers for your electronic devices, an extra set of clothes toothbrush/toothpaste and some snacks. If you have important documents or medications on hand or other expensive items, they should be set aside and kept with you until the very end of the moving day.
To start, compile a list of local moving companies you plan to research and get a quote from each mover. You will want to get the moving quotes directly through a company’s website or by calling their phone number. To make sure you have found the right company for you and your relocation needs, read the company reviews to get a better feel for the company and their overall reputation. You can also ask how the moving company is insured and if licensed. After you have familiarized yourself with the moving company, determine how each mover’s schedule works. Some questions you may think of may include your delivery date being guaranteed or if the same person who begins the loading process will transport and load them as well. Different movers have different charges so make sure you are comfortable with the specific rates, their cancellation policy, and whether a deposit is needed. This is your move. Find the company that best fits you because everyone’s needs and situations differ.
Typically, moving companies can give you an estimate via phone call. In some instances, movers may need to schedule an in-person visit at your home to provide you with an accurate quote. You may need an in-home estimate if you answer yes to any of the following questions listed below:
- Is your home 1,500 square feet or larger?
- Do you have any large or heavy items that may be difficult to move safely and securely?
- Does your home have any narrow hallways, doorways, or stairways that furniture cannot fit through?
- Will movers have difficulty parking a 26 ft. truck close to your home?
- Are you moving out of state?
In order to accurately measure the size of a room, you’ll have to do a little math. Don’t sweat it though, it’s pretty simple. Rooms are measured in square feet, which is length x width. Use the steps below to calculate the size of your room (even without a tape measure!).
- To begin, use a tape measure to measure the length and width of the room. Make sure you clear any items out of the room in order to get the most accurate measurement.
- Then, multiply the length of the room by the width of the room to determine the square footage of the space. If you do not have a tape measure, you can measure the length of your foot with a ruler to determine the area of the room.
- Pace off the length of the room stepping heel to toe. Be sure to use the wall for support if needed.
- Using the length of your foot, multiply the number of steps and divide that number by 12 to determine the number of feet from wall to wall.
- Repeat steps 3 & 4 to measure the width of the room.
- Finally, to identify the square footage of the space, multiply the length of the room by the width of the room.
- Take some time before you move to pack. You will want to allow yourself enough time to carefully pack up your belongings to avoid feeling stressed during the move.
- Create a list to determine which room will be packed first. The most common way is to pack up each room separately and helps organize your items.
- Start packing up the room in your home that you use the least. That way, you will still have the essentials to use while packing up the rest of your home.
- Your essential items should be the last components to pack. The items you use daily such as a toothbrush should be available until the absolute last second.
- If you are struggling to pack by yourself, consider hiring professionals to help. Many companies do offer packing services to make you feel at ease throughout the process.
