Can My Car Transport Company Help Ship My Furniture?
So you are in the process of moving, and you have most of your items all boxed up, but there are those larger items you have, like the dining room table or couch, and you know you are not going to be able to move those items yourself. So, what are you supposed to do? Well, you can always look for a professional full-service moving company to help move everything for you.
Considering you have your own car or a rented trailer that you will be driving to your destination, a full-service moving company may not be necessary and often too pricey. If you are flying or shipping 2 cars to your soon-to-be home, another option is to find an auto shipping company that could potentially transport your larger furniture or boxes along with your vehicle.
Does The Auto Transport Company Have Insurance That Covers Personal Items?
Don’t just assume that any auto shippers can help you move household items. This is because many companies don’t have the insurance to cover this kind of assistance. They might have coverage for loading and transporting vehicles but not for sofas and valuable household items. Due to this, it is a potential liability for the company if they break something by accident. Companies will not take a chance on this as they do not want to be on the receiving end of a lawsuit. This is why you need to call and ask while researching your car shipping options. The last thing you want to do is assume they can help and then wait until the day of asking them to help out, only to find out that they can’t.
Ask You Car Shipping Company If They Can Recommend a Moving Company
If the auto shippers tell you they are unable to assist, you can always ask for recommendations. Chances are they are going to have ideas as to who you can go with. They might even have a partner company that offers home moving services on top of the auto shippers. It is most likely a different business entity to avoid insurance problems and hassles, but your auto shippers will have helpful insights on what you need to do and who you can go with for moving help.
