UF Moving Companies
UF Moving Companies in Gainesville Florida are a plenty. Many movers in Gainesville, Florida cater to the student moving community. Every year during the annual apartment turn season, a time when all student properties renew their leases, moving companies become inundated with calls for student moving in Gainesville Florida. For students this can be a stressful and time consuming process to sift through the different moving companies. For parents the stress often becomes magnified. For most students this will be their first time dealing with a moving company, and they often don’t understand their rights and responsibilities as outlined by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer services.
According to the Department of Agriculture and Consumer services all moving companies are required to provide a written estimate or contract for services prior to conducting any service. Often moving companies in Gainesville Florida know that the UF students are unaware of this and use it to their advantage. Gainesville Moving always recommends, like the State suggests, to get at least three written estimates prior to deciding on a UF moving company to go with. Often the younger generation wants to get an estimate solely from the internet or over the phone. While this may be the quickest way, it does not ensure there will be no surprises come move day. Having a written estimate protects both the moving company and the customer from any surprises, headaches and added costs.
Any Gainesville UF Moving Company that does not offer to provide a free, no obligation in home estimate is one that the customer may want to further look into. By going to the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services website a customer can conduct a search to verify that the moving company has a valid, active license with the State of Florida. All moving companies in Florida are required to have their Intrastate Moving registration number, abbreviated IM, posted on any and all advertising. If the company the student is looking into does not provide this, then it is highly likely that the business is not operating within the confines of the law. Companies that register with the State must meet certain minimum insurance, and liability requirements, to ensure protection of its customers. Moving Companies in Florida who do not do this, may not have the customers best interest at hand. Gainesville Moving is the premier UF Student Moving Company in Gainesville Florida.
