Moving Tips

1. When Should I call a moving company?
It’s best to give your moving company between four to six week’s notice, if possible.

We can provide both non-binding quotes and binding quotes.  Non-binding quotes require you to pay based on the actual weight of your shipment and the services provided by your moving crew.

The most common quote used is the binding quote which is a fixed price bid that will not be exceeded unless additional services are ordered and performed that are not listed on your shipping list or inventory.  Make sure that your Move Consultant has included all of the items you intend on shipping.
