The freight market today is overflowing with offers from carriers. Offers vary in cost of service, quality of service and type of service. Some companies are highly specialized, others provide a wide range of services, there are also private companies consisting of one person and a single car. How to choose the right carrier so that the cargo remains intact during transportation and the cost of transportation does not put a heavy burden on the wallet. The use of the furniture companies transport also should be there.

The Right Transport

Choosing a transport companydepends largely on the properties of the transported cargo, its mass, volume and, if not strange, it sounds, the danger that the cargo may create during transportation. If you have a small box that needs to be delivered, for example, from Moscow to Nizhny Novgorod, then there is no point in hiring a Gazel with loaders.

  • If you need to carry out a residential relocation, then most likely, the company specializing in the delivery of groupage cargo in cities of Russia will not be able to help you. The market for cargo transportation services is quite fragmented, so that you can choose the company that can professionally deliver your cargo to its destination. Choosing a company of narrow specialization, you can get services from professionals in their field who have thoroughly studied their niche in the market. Specialized companies have more experienced employees in their field, than a general company. It is also necessary to take into account that a specialized company has lower prices in its market niche.

In our opinion, any transport company, regardless of what kind of services it provides for cargo transportation, must meet the following requirements:

  • polite, competent, thinking staff;
  • announcement of the delivery time at the negotiation stage;
  • fulfillment of the declared terms of transportation, punctuality of drivers;
  • 100% safety of the cargo;
  • simple ordering;
  • providing a full package of documents if necessary (contract, insurance, accounting documents);
  • publicly announced prices for services;
  • any form of payment;
  • quick resolution of disputes;
  • providing the possibility of ordering additional services.

So, we will define the criteria for choosing a moving company for the transportation of furniture, household appliances and various large-sized interior items, the region, as well as in the transportation of cargo. We will decide on the choice of the moving company in case of apartment moving within the city and apartment moving to another city, as well as office moving. First of all, the company engaged in apartment and office moving should provide a number of additional related services: professional movers, packaging material, furniture assemblers. The company must have the appropriate transport, cars of various carrying capacities, equipped with furniture booths.

When you first call to the transport company, you can understand how the carrier treats its customers. If the dispatcher of the transport company is not very happy to answer you or worse, try to get rid of your questions. If in a conversation, the dispatcher does not answer your legitimate and legitimate question, but refers to other sources of information (website, booklet), does not want to talk to you, and the only thing he needs is to fill in the transportation application form , then most likely movers and driver will treat you with even more impatience.
