Please fill out the short form provided on our website, to get free, no-obligations
moving company estimates from the best movers in your area. We will never give your contact details to anyone, without your permission.
Get at least three moving estimates from different companies and compare them, before you select a mover.
To get an accurate move estimate, show the mover’s agent every single item that needs to be moved and clearly describe the services you need.
Be wary of low-ball move estimates that seem to be unrealistically low. Reject shipping estimates that are offered via the telephone or without seeing your furniture.
A non-binding moving company estimate indicates the approximate cost of transporting your possessions to the destination and is not a bid or contract. The final cost is determined later after the shipment has been weighed.
The final cost may turn out to be more than the estimated cost and the moving company can ask you to pay 10 percent more than the initial moving cost estimate, at the time of delivery.
If there are any additional charges, beyond the 10 percent, they will have to be paid within 30 days of delivery.
With a binding moving expense estimate, you will be obliged to pay the amount quoted, whether the shipment weighs more or less than mentioned in the moving costs estimate.
A binding house moving estimate only covers the goods and services quoted. If you add any extra service or add any things that you want moved, you will have to pay an additional charge for them within 30 days of delivery.
If you are offered a not-to-exceed estimate for moving, you will have to pay the amount of the binding estimate or the actual cost, whichever is lower.
Both binding relocation estimates and not-to-exceed estimates must be provided in writing and are binding on the moving service.
