If you’re considering moving, whether for business or to be closer to family, you may have some questions. We’ve compiled a list of some of the questions that are most frequently asked here on our website, along with our answers, so that you can get a better idea about how to plan your move.
There are a wide variety of variables that go into estimating how much a move will cost, ranging from how much furniture needs to be moved and how heavy it is to whether or not it must be disassembled. The layout of the home must also be taken into consideration, as well as whether or not the furniture will need to be lifted over any other heavy objects. The number of boxes will need to be taken into consideration, as well. Again, estimates are variable and depend on the state and condition of the home, as well as the number of items that are left in it.
The moving itself will also take a variable amount of time, based on how organized the home is and its general cleanliness, as well as what has been packed already. The home will need to be completely emptied out, with all furniture, belongings, and personal items packed and removed. The timing will also depend on whether the movers are doing the packing or on whether the house has been packed in advance.
We also frequently get questions about when individuals will regain access to their belongings, and this is also highly dependent on a variety of factors. Each move is unique, and you’ll receive the dates, timeline, and arrival dates for your belongings as soon as our moving company can provide them.
Our moving company can provide estimates for the moving costs for services that we provide, including packing your belongings at your home, relocating them to your new home, and storing them if necessary until your new house is ready. We can refer you to cleaning companies in your old and new areas if this is a necessity, but we do not provide these services.
Your house should be clean, with all items that the moving company will not be packing already packed into boxes. You should be able to walk our estimator through the entire area and show them which items will be packed and which items will be staying behind or donated, so that they can get a clear estimate of how many items will need to be moved. This will allow them to help decide how big of a team they will need to send, and how big of a moving truck will be needed.
