The Moving Process

These are the steps you can rely on us taking:

FREE Ballpark Pricing

We’ll apprise you loosely what the price of your move will be after we’ve talked with you initially and we’ve evaluated the kinds of moving services needed to get you the distance you need to go. To be sure, this ballpark estimate can go up or go down, as a consequence of the services you wind up selecting.

The Home Survey

Our intent – always – is to meet your needs and work with your schedule. This explains our giving you two estimating choices. Choose the most convenient for you:

  1. In-Home Consultation. One of our expert estimators meets with you at your home to discuss your move and perform a full-house survey of the items you’ll need shipped.
  2. Video Inventory. You’ll link to our estimator by means of your smart phone and record a video of yourself performing a walk-through of your home as you clearly indicate what needs moving. It’s the first and last word in technological convenience!

The Written Estimate

After we’ve consulted with you, taken the move options you’ve chosen into account, and analyzed the results of your Home Survey, we deliver a written estimate that more exactly fixes the financial outlay required for your long-distance move.

  • the price of the move,
  • safety and insurance details,

The Pre-Move Confirmation

Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distance move.
