What Does it Mean to be Licensed and Bonded?
Selecting a bonded company is crucial when moving for several reasons. Basically, a bonding company has put away funds that are made accessible to the consumer (you) in case an accident has occurred during your move. The money is not in control of the moving company; rather it is in control of the state. Let’s say you hire a moving company and they steal your white diamond necklace. Once you file that claim, an investigation takes place and you are paid out by the bond.
A license is necessary for various professions, especially a moving company. Having a license present verifies that you are competent and thoroughly trained to do the work. Clients can get your license number and search it through the Better Business Bureau to view your reliability. By having a license, this demonstrates to the client that you are dependable and professional. It’s also comforting to know you are leaving the job up to a professional.
Basically, make sure the company you are choosing is licensed, bonded and insured or you could be in a whirlwind of issues. Upon finding out that the company has attained all three, check their background. Do a lot of research and check at least 3 quotes with other companies. It’s worth taking the time to do a little investigating.
