Congratulations, you have called the moving company and you have begun the process of a stress-free move. To continue that theme of stress reduction, your next step is to get ready for your moving survey. That’s where your moving professional will be able to give you an accurate moving estimate.
Having an accurate estimate is going to go a long way in giving you Peace of Mind for your upcoming move as well as your ability to budget moving forward. Plus, the last thing you want is any surprises on moving day because your movers didn’t see everything. So let’s start there.
Show your moving consultant everything
If it needs to be moved, then your moving professional needs to see it. This includes the main home as well as the garage, the attic, or any crawl spaces. If you have a barn or a shed, it needs to be incorporated into your survey. And if you have items in a storage facility, and you want those moved, make sure your moving company understands this as well.
Get rid of unwanted items
You can save yourself money on your move by getting rid of items you no longer have a use for in your home. If you can donate those items ahead of time, that’s great. But it’s also important to tell your moving professional about items in the home that are not going to be placed on the moving trucks.
Get a virtual survey
Many moving companies, including this one, are now offering virtual surveys and they are done on your time. You have more flexibility for scheduling and in most cases, they are just as accurate as an in-home survey.
