Extra pick-ups for the removal of packing material are not authorized. You may wish to unpack some articles. If you do, claims against the carrier for loss or damage may be more difficult to substantiate. Make sure the inventory shows which articles you will unpack before you sign it.
Allowing the movers to remove cartons and packing materials on delivery day will insure that these materials are recycled.
You or your representative must be present at the time of delivery and unpacking. It is YOUR responsibility to insure that all items delivered are checked off the inventory.
Goods will be placed in the area of the house that you designate. Beds will be assembled and mirrors attached to dressers.
PACKING AND PICK-UP DATES
Bedding, utensils, and clothing can be set aside for use on your last night and packed on moving day. After a date is agreed upon, the carrier is required to give reasonable advance notice of delay, if unable to comply.
At the time your move is arranged, a delivery spread will be fixed according to your request and the carrier's ability to comply. Shipments of less than 2,000 pounds may require up to 14 days to deliver.
You or someone you can rely on should be present to check off each item on your inventory as it comes into your residence. Make note of damaged or missing articles on the driver's inventory
