Why do movers cancel last minute?

So, why does this happen? Why do movers cancel last minute? Well, unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. There is an endless number of reasons why your movers might want to cancel your move. However, generally speaking, there are two main reasons why you might get that sorrowing call from your movers on moving day:

  • Breach of agreement. Your movers can call off the move if a client didn’t comply with the contract. For example, they can cancel your move if you don’t submit the weight of all your belongings before moving day. This is especially true if you arrange a binding estimate.
  • Unforeseeable circumstances. Terrible weather means icy and slippery roads. Which can lead to increased risk to your belongings during transport. And if the weather is so bad that the movers outright refuse to move during it (i.e. blizzard, or hurricane), don’t be surprised if you get a call from your movers Amesbury MA.

What can you do about it?

If the movers cancel your move you have two options.

First, you can always ask for a new moving date, which your movers Derry NH will be much obliged to provide.

If your rights have been impinged on, you have the full right under the sun to protect them. However, we are sure it won’t come to that. Taking a case to court is probably the last thing you are going to want to do. A simple phone call is probably all that it’s going to take.
