Moving Estimate

What to expect when getting an Estimate from your moving company:


This type of estimate means the moving company can’t charge you more than 10% above the original estimate. Keep in mind this isn’t always the case, in some states, there may be No limit to what you’re required to pay, No matter what the estimate states. This is the most common estimate in the moving industry, especially with local moves.


This typically means you will not have to pay any overages to the original estimate. The estimate is the most you’ll have to pay for any service rendered. Check with your state to make sure this is true per state requirements.


This should be a fixed price for your move and all extras and services. If you request addition service later on, though, you’ll have to pay extra for those services. That could include packing materials, rearranging furniture, unpacking services, not included in the original quote.


When you call into our office, we could provide you with an approximate cost, either for your local move or for your long-distance move based on the items you wish to move. Keep in mind we can’t see your locations and if there are stairs, elevator or long walk the move may take longer. So, it would be a rough idea on what to expect on moving day.


This is the newest way to do any estimate, with everything going on with the Pandemic this would be one of safest ways to have any estimate. You could email pictures or Facetime our estimator to do a walk through virtual. This way we could see the items you would us to pack or move for you.
