What to Do if Your Moving Company Damages Something

Moving can be a hassle on its own, but finding out that some of your belongings have been damaged is the last thing you want to hear. As the owner of the property, you’re entitled to reimbursement from the moving company. Here is what you need to know:

Review Contract

Before you sign the contract, review the fine-print details to make sure there isn’t a clause releasing the company from moving damages liability.

Inform the Movers

As soon as you spot damaged property, inform the movers. If they confirm an item has been broken, it will help expedite the claim process.

Document the Scene

Once you see that something is damaged, take photos. You want to have proof that your items have visual wear. It also helps if you have a time-stamped photo of your property before the move.

Call the Company

You need to call the moving company to file a claim. With some businesses you have up to nine months to do so, but it’s best to do things right away. You can also speak with the movers directly so they can give you insight into the process. Reputable dealers have insurance policies in place for instances such as these. Someone should contact you to file the necessary paperwork that will lead to reimbursement.

Filing a Complaint

If the moving company isn’t following proper procedure, you can contact the Better Business Bureau and file a complaint. You should receive a response within two weeks.

Available for Inspection

It is likely that an agent from the moving company will want to inspect the item to ensure the damage is in line with your report. So you want to make it available to that individual, and this means not setting up the piece of furniture, in some cases.

Contact the American Moving and Storage Organization

This organization has an arbitration program that can handle the case between you and the moving company. The company is required to attend the hearing but it isn’t mandatory for you. As long as your loss is less than $10,000 the company must accept your request for an arbitration hearing.

Write a Review

You can be a help to the community and write a review about the moving company. Let others know of your experience so they can be informed before they choose movers.

Great Christian Moving Businesses

I wanted to tell you about to of my favorite all time best moving businesses: U-Save Moving and Storage and U-Save Moving and Storage of Grand Rapids.

These two business are what I would call the bees knees so to speak.

While they are two separate moving companies they are owned by the same God fearing Jae Burnham.

He started U-Save Moving and Storage way back 2008 at the height of the great Recession in Michigan (one of the hardest hit states). Of course back we he started this moving company it was named Quick and Easy Moving, but he had to change the name when a greedy company out of Detroit area sued over the name. Not being able to afford million dollar lawyers he had to capitulate and change the name.

Starting small Jae quickly built up the moving business using his advanced knowledge of internet marketing and sales skills to where he now opens up his Grand Rapids moving company.

So now Jae and U-Save Moving and Storage are more than just Lansing movers but the best movers in all of Michigan per the testimonials of 100’s of satisfied customers.


Still a small independent moving company centered in Lansing Michigan they are quickly expanding.

They not only move locally but they will also move you anywhere in the lower 48 states, that is if you are willing to pay :)

We invite you to go to their websites and check them out for yourselves. Go to http://usavemovingandstorage.com and http://movers-grandrapids.com.

We Must Stay Healthy

That means keeping the Temple of God clean of impurities spiritually and physically as well. Besides working out being and staying healthy means eating right.

Well it means eating those things that will keep us healthy like vegetables and fruit and the proper protein.

One way to eat the proper protein is to have protein bars that are made from all natural ingredients. And out friends at the Best Protein Bars Report have put together a tremendous amount of useful info for us.

Visiting St Paul the Apostle

One of the most prolific apostles was Paul.

A good study of acts reveals the ministry and route that Paul took throughout Asia, Greece and finally Rome where he met his untimely death.

I believe, even more so than Peter, that we gentiles have the Gospel because of Paul’s ministry. Sure the church was built on the ministry of Peter (which I believe was more of misunderstood interpretation more than anything) but it was Paul and his entourage that did the legwork.

Here is a great video of the life the Apostle Paul:
