Frequently Asked Questions

How will the cost of my move be calculated?

Each move is “rated” based on the type of move intended.

  • Local: If you or your family is moving within 40 miles of your present location, your move will be calculated based on an hourly rate.
  • Intra-State: Any move greater than 40 miles within the state of Ohio. This type of move is calculated based on total weight of the shipment and the total miles driven to destination.
  • Inter-State: Any move that crosses state lines, outside the state of Ohio. Again, this type of move is calculated based on total weight of the shipment and the total miles driven to destination.
  • International: Any move that crosses an international border. This type of move is calculated based on a cost per 100 pounds that may include a special container for use by air, by sea, by rail, etc.
What other items can affect the total cost of my move?

Packing – This service can be provided on a customized basis, where only selected items are packed, or on a whole-house basis. The total cost of packing includes a packing rate per box and the cost of the box.

Storage-in-Transit – This service can be provided should the homeowner need to vacate their home ahead of schedule. The cost of this service depends primarily on how long the household goods remain in storage and the amount stored.

Insurance (also known as Valuation) – There are several choices available to the homeowner.

  • Coverage may be available from the homeowner’s own insurance broker via the homeowner’s policy already in force, or through a rider to the homeowner’s current policy.
  • Basic coverage is available, at no cost, to the homeowner provided by the mover.
  • Replacement value coverage is available to the homeowner for an additional charge. Deductibles are available to lessen the cost of this line item.

Items requiring Special Handling – There will be an additional fee for items requiring special handling like grandfather clocks, riding lawn mowers, boats, motorcycles, and automobiles.

How much extra does it cost for the professionals to pack?

Having the professionals at Woleslagel Moving pack those items you may be uncomfortable packing or those items you want insured, is more cost effective than you might imagine.

What about my good dishes and glassware? Can I have just portions of my home (belongings) packed by the professionals

Yes and yes! You can instruct Woleslagel Moving to pack your good china or, for example, pack just the kitchen.

How does packing affect my insurance coverage?

Insurance will cover anything packed by Woleslagel Moving; however, anything packed by the homeowner will not be covered, as is the case with any moving company.

Can I purchase boxes, tape, paper, and other supplies from Woleslagel Moving?

Yes. We have the correct box for the specific need plus the paper and tape you will require. You have the option to acquire boxes and supplies elsewhere so long as box lids are in tact.

How will my good furniture and antiques be protected during my move?

All furniture is carefully wrapped and padded by professionals to help insure a quality move.

How about my Baby Grand piano?

What most people don’t’ know is the N.I. Woleslagel began, over 70 years ago, selling and delivering pianos before he decided to get into the household moving business! The Woleslagel family is now it its third generation of moving delicate instruments.

How do I select a moving company?

Be careful. Begin by assuring yourself that your prospective mover is registered with the State of Ohio (PUCO) in Columbus, Ohio. Each mover must be registered to do business within the state! Ask for their PUCO registration number and call the state if you have any questions. This registration insures the mover will carry the required amount of liability insurance on their personnel and on their vehicles. It also insures compliance should you have a claim for damage.

  • Check with the Better Business Bureau in your area to determine the complaint experience. (www.toledobbb.org)
  • Check with your local Chamber of Commerce President to see what they have been told.
  • Do you know anyone else who has had experience with the prospective mover? What about your realtor? People at work? Ask for some references.
  • Do you trust the person giving you the estimate? How open are they to answering your questions, giving you alternative suggestions, etc.?
How do I pay for the move? What are my options?

A personal check is generally accepted for a local move. A major credit card or certified check is generally expected for intra-state, inter-state or international moves at time of delivery.

How far in advance should I schedule/arrange for my household goods to be picked up?

During the primary moving season – May through September – it is generally a good idea to schedule your move 2-3 weeks ahead of time to help insure you get the date that best suits your needs.

How can I show my appreciation for a job well done by my moving company?

Write a letter to the company president, specifically praising those people who did a good job, from the beginning of the process to the end. Your taking the time to send a letter will be greatly appreciated! And don’t forget to tell your friends and your realtor – they, too, may have need of the mover’s service.
