What To Know Before Hiring Movers in Florida 


  • You have probably already heard about the horror stories that come with hiring certain moving companies in Florida


  • Businesses have received complaints about additional charges, hidden fees, and damaged furniture. 



  •  Otherwise, you run the risk of letting a shady company have access to your belongings. 


To avoid moving scams when hiring movers in Florida, here's what you need to know:


Check Customer Reviews


Florida moving company reviews

  •  To check if a moving company is legitimate, read online reviews to see what people say about it. 


  • Should you come across Florida movers with a lot of 1-star reviews, it can be an indication that they are not reliable. 


  • Reliable companies will have at least 20 reviews, with most customers happy. 


  • Trustpilot, Yelp, Google, and the Better Business Bureau are reputable sites to check for reviews. 


Insurance 


  • Legitimate movers have insurance, but that doesn't mean you have full coverage unless you pay a deductible. 


  • The standard liability insurance of 60 cents per pound is what you'll get if you don't purchase additional coverage. 


  • If your TV breaks during shipping, it costs only $10 to $20. This is because standard liability insurance is only sixty cents per pound.


  • To have full coverage, you need to pay a deductible. The value of your furniture determines the deductible amount. It can be $400 or more, depending on the value of your items. 


Know Your Estimate 


  • When you call movers for a quote, your initial cost will likely change, hence the keywords: Moving estimate. 


  • If the wording of your agreement includes "estimate," it suggests that your relocation expenses are not guaranteed.


  • Movers calculate your moving estimate by the size and distance of your relocation. 


  • Florida movers don't provide a fixed price unless you ask for it. This applies to both local and long-distance relocations.


Cubic Feet/ Weight


Long distance movers in Florida calculating the costs
  • The cubic feet or weight of your furniture plays a major factor in the overall cost of your shipment. 


  • You can find the estimated cubic feet on your shipment on the Florida moving company's contract. 


  • If you find a cheaper company, ensure your cubic feet are accurate, or you'll pay the difference on move day. 


  • Moving companies have a reputation for lowering your cubic feet to persuade you to agree and sign. The problem is that your initial costs are not always a flat rate; they're often not. 



Binding Not To Exceed Estimate 


  • A binding moving estimate is a flat rate agreement that must be mentioned in your contract.


  • Make sure that your contract states that your moving costs cannot change on move day to avoid disputes with your movers.

 


  • The FMCSA states Florida movers can re-negotiate a binding moving estimate if your inventory list is inaccurate. 


Delivery Time For Long Distance Moves


From Florida to Any state movers
  • Long distance moving companies must provide a reasonable dispatch service, but that is not always the case. 


  • By law long distance movers can take 21 business days to deliver your furniture. Sounds crazy, right? We know. 


  • American National Movers takes two to three days for out-of-state moves because we don't make any extra stops. 


  • Don't choose Florida moving companies that share your truck with another customer for faster furniture delivery. 



Protect Your Move 


  • The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has resources to help protect you from moving scams. 


  • Check www.protectyourmove.gov to see if your Florida movers have any registered complaints in the FMCSA's database. 



Long Distance Movers Florida 


  • A long-distance move can be a 200-400 mile trip within Florida or a relocation to another state. 


  • Should you be moving between states, the correct term for it is an "interstate move." 


  • We calculate out-of-state moves based on your furniture size and your relocation mileage. 


Professional Moving Services Florida 


  • For a good moving experience, you need to hire professional movers. 


  • The average cost of professional movers is 1,000 for local moves and $3,500 for long-distance movers in Florida. 


  • Cheap moving companies in Florida may offer a low price but don't agree immediately. Check if they are trustworthy first. 


Hiring Our Reliable Florida Movers
