Georgia Moving Tips

Georgia’s Department of Public Safety offers valuable tips on how to be prepared for a move to, from, or within Georgia. 

After you choose your licensed and insured carrier, it’s an excellent idea to get a written and signed estimate. Keep it in a safe place in case you need to recall it later. Understand and agree with the bill of lading (your moving contract) before you sign it. You will also want to fully understand your movers’  limits of liability and loss/damage protection before your move. 

Get off to a great start on moving day by being ready when your movers arrive and make an inventory with them before the truck is fully loaded. Be at the destination at the agreed upon time to receive your household goods. Sign the delivery receipt after checking the condition of your property.
