Do I need an in-home moving estimate?


By ajakab

Our Move Coordinators are experienced, and trained to provide you with an over-the-phone estimate. They’ll ask you several questions to help provide an accurate estimate for the length of your move.

There are three factors that are most likely to impact the accuracy of your estimate:

Preparation: When it comes to making a move efficient, preparation is key! It always helps save time if you can have everything packed and ready to go. Any item that can go in a box should. Also, moving boxes and items as close to the entrance/exit of your home as possible really helps.

Volume: It can be difficult to remember everything that needs to be moved when you’re filling out a form or discussing a quote. We recommend doing a walkthrough of your home beforehand so you can take notes on the number and variety of items you have. This will help your quote be as accurate as possible!

Accessibility: How long is the walk from your door to the entrance of the building? How close can we back the truck to that entrance? Is the snow and ice cleared from walks in the wintertime? How tall/wide are pathways, entrances, stairwells, etc.? Issues like this can have an impact on the length of your move and, therefore, your quote.
