When moving with National City Movers, you should know that we start charging only once we arrive at your location, and we don’t charge our clients to get to or go back from your location. This means that we will stop the clock once our movers complete your relocation and the last item is unloaded from our truck.

9. What if movers break something?

It is important to hire a licensed and insured moving company, as you would want someone to compensate for the damage and be held accountable if anything unfortunate were to occur during your relocation.

Never hire movers without a valid license or insurance, as this won’ t be the case in those situations.

There are a lot of amazing local movers for you to choose from, that are licensed, insured and reliable, and will provide you with a great moving experience.
