Do I have to be present at the time of loading/unloading?
No, you do not have to be present, though someone needs to provide access for the driver.
What are the payment Terms?
We at Movega Removals do not adopt the full payment upfront practice. Once the deposit is cleared, the balance due is then split into two equal instalments. First Installment is due two weeks before the collection, and the second one is due on the day of delivery, once the vehicle arrives.
In case of fines, incurred during transit, as a result of overweight which party will be responsible for the fine?
We do have every intention to avoid fines and tickets during transit. Many times there are substantial differences between the preliminary and final inventory lists. In case of overweight, it is the customer's responsibility to cover the cost of the ticket.
Would my load be inspected by customs?
For the countries of Switzerland and Norway, there is a Customs procedure. Therefore it is very likely that your load gets inspected. That is why our moving quotes from and to the countries mentioned above include Customs Clearance Service to ensure that the documents needed are prepared and provided to the driver. Please do keep in mind that the service related to the customs clearance procedure provided by Movega is to cover the administrative costs. Any additional fees required by the authorities would be the customers' responsibility to protect.
