    Clients tend to become stressed at the time of moving, especially if it is their first move or if they have not moved in a while; as I am sure as a real estate professional you already know this. They have trusted in you to sell their home as well as find them a new one, with this they also want your help with navigating the other parts of moving as well. Here are two helpful ways you can assist your clients who will be using a moving company.

    • ·                                 Give them advice for finding a reliable moving company. Many clients do not have any idea on how to find a reliable company. Deciding on whom to trust with packing and/or transporting personal belonging is a HUGE decision. Why not make it a little easier by sending them to this site:

    www.protectyourmove.gov  ;where they provide information on Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s brochures Moving Fraud Prevention Checklist and Red Flags of Moving Fraud.

    •             Help them understand the difference between basic released value liability and full value protection. Clients often believe that moving companies will pay them the full amount for their property if lost or damaged en route to their new home, however this isn’t always the case.  The website

          www.protectyourmove.gov also can be a valuable resource for this information.
    You don’t have to be experts on all subjects. Although if you are able to point out to your clients trusted and reliable resources it will help make you their trusted professional ‘go to’ person.
