I realize that this is probably going to be one of those "you have to ask the specific company" thing, but I wonder in general.
If I pay a company to move my stuff from the old to the new address when I'm moving, do they generally let me ride with them to the new location? And if so, does that mean me sitting with them in the front, in a real car chair, or inside the cargo space of the truck with all my moving boxes?
The reasons I want to know are:
- Paying for a separate taxi ride to the new location would set me back a ton. I have no car/driver's license myself, nor can anyone else drive me there. Taking a train/buses would be very cumbersome.
- I'm frankly scared of leaving them out of sight. Even the idea of having a bunch of (well paid) strangers carry my boxes out from my house into some truck, and then out from the truck inside the new home, stresses me out endlessly. Who knows if they just disappear with all my belongings, never to be seen again? Or "just" break it by rough handling, or carelessly allow somebody else to snoop and/or steal items from my boxes, etc.
Maybe I'm too paranoid, but after all, we are talking about 100% of my belongings, minus whatever I can stuff inside my backpack to carry with me. (I will be putting all my storage devices and other critical but small items in there for sure!)
