The estimate for your move

  1. Choosing the right company: When you go on- line, you see so many companies. How should you make the decision who to call? The first thing is looking at the Better Business Bureau, and checking if the company has consumer complaints. If the company seems reliable call them and make an appointment for them to come and estimate the cost.
  2. The estimate: This is an important step especially if you have more than two members in your household. The cost of the move depends on the amount of stuff that you have, and what looks like no big deal to you, reveals itself differently to the professional eye. This is why it is really important to decide what are you planning to move and what is staying. The more detailed you are about it, the more accurate your estimate will be. The moving representative will make a list of what is going and by that list, he will give you the estimate. If you decide on the day of the move to take more things that are not included, expect to pay for it extra.
  3. Note that the estimate is only an estimate and not exact. Until the move itself, there is a margin of inaccuracy.

That is why it is good to go with a company that offers a flat rate that is not exceeding a certain amount.
