Tips on How to Get a Trusted Moving Company

August 18th, 2016

When it comes to moving, you make a decision whether to handle the move yourself or to hire professionals to help! You might think that having a DIY move will help you save money but it’s usually better to invest in reliable and professional movers to take care of your fragile or high valued items.  There are many moving companies to choose from in the New England area, however, who do you choose to trust? At Rare Moving & Trucking, we have put together some tips to help you find reliable and quality movers in your area.

 

BBB-Accredited

To know that your potential moving company is trustworthy, check to make sure they are BBB-Accredited before making any calls. This accreditation is a great indicator that the moving company has quality service and isn’t getting a large amount of complaints from past clients.

Customer Reviews

We live in a day and age where feedback is everything. We love reading and writing our opinions about our personal experiences with company services about everything. That’s why it’s important for businesses to have a lot of positive reviews. It’s helpful for users to see what other people had to say about their moving experience with a particular moving company.

Detailed Free Estimate

A good way to evaluate if the moving company is right for you is how they treat you during your moving quote, which should be for free.  If you are not getting timely answers back to your questions or you are getting little to no detailed replies to your requests then they are probably not the right company for you.

Top Truck Maintenance Tips for the Summer

August 3rd, 2016

Make sure that your truck is up to par for the summer with these simple tips before heading out to your scheduled routes! Even though summer might have better road conditions than the winter time, it can still lead to dangerous results if your vehicle isn’t running properly. With these maintenance guidelines, you’ll be safer making new deliveries in the summer heat!

Cooling System: The anti-freeze concentration levels should be proper and all cooling systems should be in order since its summer weather outside. If the anti-freeze level to water ratio is off, the cooling system won’t be able to function properly in the warmth. For your safety, be sure to inspect the radiator mounts, fan shrouds, and fan clutch as well.

Tires: Heat can make the rubber that the tires are made up of burn fast. So in the summer, check your tire tread depth occasionally.  Another issue heat can cause problems with is your tire pressure. Your tires can blow out if it is under or over inflated due to the heat. Ensure your safety and successful deliveries by checking your tire tread depth and tire pressure consistently!

Air Conditioning: Summer weather brings in heat and humidity, so air conditioning is essential when on the road with your truck! Check for any leaks, condenser blockage, clogs in filters, hoses and more since a dysfunctional A/C unit in your truck can be disastrous!

Battery: Battery sulfation and the conducting grid of your vehicle’s battery can corrode due to extreme heat. The summer’s heat can cause corrosion of batteries and if it is not treated properly, it can lead to lower voltage from the battery. Maintain your battery life by inspecting your battery often and brush off the corrosion.
