Being citizens of an increasingly globalized world, it has become the norm for millions of people to experience a big move either for personal, political, or business related reasons.

But with many companies offering relocating services on the market today, how do you know if you’re picking the right one to suit your specific needs and requirements?
Here are 4 things to consider when choosing a relocation company for hire:
1. Are You Moving Domestically or Internationally?
While most local moving companies cover basic handling and transporting of household furniture, appliances, and personal belongings, there’s still a risk of mismanagement that requires waivers from customers. If you’re moving domestically, there’s probably the overhanging worry of wanting to stick to a certain budget without breaking the bank. However, there’s always the possibility of certain add-ons for services rendered that covers very big items that require more manpower, or fragile belongings that need extra packaging.
With Crown Relocations, all of these worries are taken care of by their team of expert handlers once your Dedicated Move Manager has itemized all your belongings. Operations are carried out smoothly and efficiently with state-of-the-art moving facilities and equipment, both domestically and internationally ensuring secure handling of all personal belongings, while using only the highest quality and environmentally-friendly packing materials.
2. How are Your Belongings Stored in Transit?
For international relocation, your belongings will have to pass through a transit point that will require storage facilities for a certain amount of time.
Regardless of long or short term transit, Crown’s storage facilities around the world offer the best possible protections for all your belongings wherever they are. Customers will be advised on options available should you require storage at your location of departure, final point of arrival, or in between transit location.

- If you decide to go traveling before you reach your destination
3. Are Your Belongings in Safe Hands?
An important factor that’s crucial to transporting personal items is a good coverage plan to protect customers from risks associated with road, rail, ship, or air transportation. The CrownCare Transit Protection plan is designed to provide the coverage you need against these risks, and all crew hired to operate these services are rigorously trained to exercise care and treat customers with respect and professionalism when packing, transporting, delivering, and unpacking all belongings.
Because of such strict internal regulations, Crown has one of the highest-rated records for claim-free relocations in the industry. It is important to note that although every precaution is taken to eliminate risk, personal belongings will be traveling on a truck, train, plane, or boat, all of which carry inherent risks. This is why Crown offers the CrownCare Transit Protection plan with policies that offer full replacement cost coverage on an all-risks basis.
