Hiring a moving company that is licensed, insured, and bonded is critical.

Whether you’re planning a move locally or long distance, moving can be stressful. One of the most important factors in planning a move is to hire the right mover for the job. Not knowing what to look for while searching through the vast range of moving options can be overwhelming. Erickson Living has simplified this process for their incoming residents by narrowing down the wide range of options to a list of “preferred” movers. 

Selecting a preferred mover can mean the difference between a move that is a success and one that is a disaster. Each Erickson Living community offers a list of selected movers that support your geographical area. These vendors have undergone a thorough vetting process that evaluates their quality of work, efficiency, and reliability. As a result, working with a preferred mover provides incoming residents with peace of mind knowing that their treasured items will be handled with care.

Proven track record

Hiring a moving company that is licensed, insured, and bonded is critical. This certification assures that the moving company is permitted to conduct business and that it holds the necessary insurance coverage required should an accident occur during the course of the move. In addition to being insured, preferred movers typically offer full replacement value protection. This coverage holds the moving company responsible should your items be damaged or lost during the move. Additionally, preferred movers have a proven track record of professionally loading, unloading, and transporting contents. Use of the proper equipment and trained staff to assure that your property arrives in its original condition is essential. 

If you are planning a move to an Erickson Living community, take the stress out of finding the right mover by simply choosing one that is preferred. Assuring that the move to your new home is a pleasant experience is something Erickson Living takes tremendous pride in.
