The importance of hiring bonded movers.

When employing movers to relocate your furniture, you are entrusting almost all of your possesions to that company and it’s employees. A moving service is potentially one of the most important purchases a consumer will make in their lifetime. Rarely, if ever, will a consumer put that much trust and faith in any other service company.

Most consumers are hestitant to allow service industry employees or contractors into their homes when they are not around. When is the last time you told the phone or cable company to just let themselves into your home because you couldn’t be there..? This is understanable as you would be allowing these strangers access to all of your belongings without knowing whether they were trustworthy.

The moving and renovations industries are full of transient employees with unknown backgrounds. Moving companies regulary hire day labourers and contractors, often without so much as an interview. The companies hiring these people often don’t even have basic infomation such as their full name, address, or SIN number. These kind of labourers could have criminal records for theft or violent crimes. Are these the types of people that you want to hand over all your belongings to or be left in a house alone with?

When a moving company bonds its employees, it is essentially insuring against employee theft and dishonesty. Due to this undertaking, such companies often insist on criminal background checks and ensure that they have complete details of employee information. This would, obviously, greatly reduce the likelihood of criminal acts by employees.

1st Rate Movers took a lot of stress out of our move by being on time, careful (not a single bump), and courteous. They were helpful and patient in arranging the furniture….and the estimate they gave was accurate. Thanks again for the excellent work in our move.
