Moving Estimates in Minutes

By October 9, 2018May 12th, 2019Moving


Moving requires a lot of time and planning. Even if you are only moving a couple blocks away from your current home there are several details that you will need to have set . Planning a move can be stressful and time-consuming but the idea of moving without good planning can definitely be far more stressful.

One of the most difficult things when planning a move is finding the time for it. You have to do a lot of research, make sure the mover is legitimate, decide on what things you’ll bring to the new home, packing and of course you need to figure out how much it will cost.

A few years ago your only option was an In-Home estimate which meant that you needed to schedule an appointment with a moving company so they would go to your home and make a good assessment of all your belongings so they could give you a fair estimate for your move. Nowadays things are far more simple and you have more options. Sure you can still have someone go to your home to get the estimate but there is also a new and quick way to get the information you need in just a few minutes that will easily adapt to your busy schedule.
