Filling out an online quote request is a great way to get a rough estimate of how long a typical move takes from the information you provide without having to wait until an estimator can make an appointment to come and visit your residence. While our Customer Service Representatives will do their best to give you an accurate estimate, it all comes down to how detailed you are when filling out the form.
As you fill out the form, ensure to provide a working email address that you check daily. When providing a number you can be reached at, also provide a time that works best to call. If you list a work number, ensure that you are able to take incoming calls.
Date of Move
This is very important to fill out. For us to assist you in moving, we need to see if we have trucks available. If you are flexible on which day you can move, provide a range of days that work best for you. Keep in mind the last and first week of the month are always the busiest times to move. If you need to move in this time frame, book a mover a month in advance to ensure you get the date you want.
Type of Move
There is a big difference in moving a few pieces of furniture and moving the entire contents of a house. Depending on if its a house or apartment, we may send more movers to handle the use of stairs or elevators.
If you do not know the square footage of your residence, provide the number of bedrooms you have. This will help us to give you a more accurate estimate and how many boxes you might need to pack your home.
Flights of stairs slow the moving process. If we know how many floors there are, we may provide an extra mover to speed up the process. If you are moving into or out of an apartment, find out if there is a service or freight elevator made available to the movers.
When filling out this portion of the form, please provide the full address of where you are moving from and moving to, not just the city. Providing us with the full address allows us to calculate the travel time more accurately.
This last section of the request allows you to provide us any pertinent information that we might need to know. If there is a specified time window for an elevator, limited access to the driveway, or a heavy item we need to move like a paino or a safe.
Following these simple guidelines will help you get a more accurate online estimate and ensure there are no surprises on moving day.
