We’re happy to work with clients to develop a plan of action that best suits their individual needs. Rely on the best Utah movers in the business for a great moving experience!

Timing is crucial

When planning a move, remember that timing is critical. Most people move during the warmer months. This makes it harder to schedule with summer movers salt lake on short notice. To avoid scheduling issues during our peak season, try to schedule your move several 2-4 weeks in advance.  Although it is easier to schedule a move outside of our busy season, keep in mind weather conditions can interfere with long-distance moves too. It’s important to discuss all the issues with your moving team if there is flexibility in the moving times.

Start Packing Early

If you’re anticipating moving in the coming months, it’s important to evaluate what will be moved and what will be left behind. Since the volume of belongings to be moved impacts the total cost, disposing of non-essential items rather than moving them will reduce the overall cost. Our experts will provide advice whenever possible to help during the packing process.

We encourage clients that are doing their own packing to standardize the box sizes to streamline the process. Standardized sizing eliminates wasted space in the moving trucks. Therefore, saving money for customers and reducing the chance of damage. Of course, every box should be carefully labeled. This ensures it is handled properly during the move and is delivered to the right space in the new home.

In addition, Pioneer Moving and Storage offers full packing services. Our experts know how to properly pack items to eliminate the chance of damage occurring. Whether it’s fine china or valuable works of art, our skilled team has the training and equipment necessary to safely and efficiently pack the items. Of course, we’re also available for clients needing help unpacking at the new location.

What type of insurance will I be offered?

Movers generally provide three types of protection for your goods in case they are lost or damaged.

Limited liability: This is the basic coverage required by law and doesn’t cost you anything. Under limited liability, the mover is responsible for 60 cents per pound per item for an interstate move.

Added valuation: This type allows you to collect the amount based on the current replacement value of the item, minus depreciation. The amount you pay for this coverage depends on how much you declare your goods are worth.

Full value: This insurance costs the most and covers the actual cost of an item’s replacement or repair, without any deduction for depreciation. Before purchasing coverage from the moving company, check your homeowner’s insurance policy to see if it will cover your goods during a move and compare plans.

What happens if my items get lost or damaged?

We do everything possible to prevent lost or damaged items. However in the case it does happen, you have nine months from the date of delivery to file a claim.
