Kansas City Moving Company Shares Advice On Hiring Competent Movers

May 29, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Kansas City, MO based Centurion Moving & Storage wishes to advise the public on the necessity of checking an interstate moving company’s qualifications prior to hiring them. As they are themselves veterans of the long distance moving and storage business, the company has a wealth of experience to share regarding the standards that every professional mover should maintain.

According to the company, several federal and state regulators police long distance moving companies, that use federal interstates and state highways, to protect their customers’ property while in transit. As these government regulations are intended to reduce financial risk to the customer (by ensuring the safety of their possessions), moving companies take up the responsibility of care when they load a customer’s belongings on to their vehicles. However, Centurion Moving stresses that residents and businesses moving across state lines should not assume that everything is automatically taken care of. The most crucial step, they say, is always to check how qualified a mover is before trusting them to take one’s possessions.

Fortunately, Centurion Moving & Storage notes that there are a few telltale characteristics that customers may look out for when seeking a qualified and responsible moving company, no matter where they live or are moving to. Customers are advised to check the company’s Assignment of US Department Of Transportation (DOT) Number and whether they are registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Furthermore, it is also important to check how comprehensive the company’s insurance is.

The Department Of Transportation issues a unique US DOT number to interstate moving companies for meeting federal regulation standards of safety and financial responsibility. Having this number is easy proof that company is compliant with the relevant regulations. Furthermore, the US DOT number helps track the company’s records in regard to audits, inspections, compliance reviews, crash investigations, and other safety data.

A noted on the company’s website, Interstate movers have to be registered with the FMCSA to transport household goods across state lines. The FMCSA requires interstate moving companies to update their registrations every two years. Centurion Moving & Storage advises customers to check whether the moving companies they get quotes from have up-to-date registration.

Last, but not least, customers should check that the moving company in question carries adequate insurance. Interstate moving companies are required to hold Bodily Injury and Property Damage (BIPD) and Cargo Insurance Policies, at a minimum. They are also required to have workers’ compensation insurance to protect both their employees and their customers in the event an employed mover is injured while transporting a customer’s possessions.

Naturally, local Kansas City movers of Centurion Moving & Storage’s pedigree take pride in making sure that they comply with all state and federal laws, while simultaneously delivering a satisfying customer experience.

The company says, “If you are looking for a trusted and licensed long distance moving company in Kansas City, then look no further. Centurion Moving has the licence for long distance moves, and employs highly trained professional movers, many of whom are themselves US veterans.” The professional movers also retain the proper equipment and vehicles required to ensure a safe and efficient move—utilizing floor protection materials, wardrobe cartons to safely move hanging items, and furniture blankets to protect a customer’s belongings while in transit. They add that, “We have a variety of truck sizes that can service any size move, from a small apartment to a large home. All of our uniformed movers are full-time, fully trained employees, and each undergoes a drug screen and background check.”

While moving across such distances can be a hassle that few people wish to deal with, the company is able to cut down on the time it takes to shift, and therefore the stress it generates, by relying on their experience to navigate Kansas City as quickly as possible. They assert that, “From downtown, to North Kansas City, to the surrounding suburbs, Centurion Moving knows the fastest, most efficient routes for your move. Our seasoned staff members will plan all of your moving logistics, and our team of local Kansas City movers will make the move with the utmost care and respect for your items.”
