How do you determine the estimate?
We determine your moving estimate based on several factors: the total weight of all your items for long distance moves, the total number of hours needed for local moves, and total distance in between your locations for both local and long distance.
Are your estimates binding or nonbinding?
We offer both binding and non-binding moving estimates.
What is a binding estimate?
A binding estimate, or Not to Exceed price, is the total cost of the move which is agreed to by the shipper and carrier before the move. A binding estimate is provided to give you an exact price of the move before it happens, which can help you establish a moving budget.
What is a non-binding estimate?
A non-binding estimate is an estimate that can change based on your needs. For long distance moves, once all of your belongings are loaded into the truck we travel to a certified weigh station to weigh the truck. At this point we will know how much your shipment weighs so we can provide an actual cost based on your shipment weight. This option can be more or less than your original estimate depending on how much you take and the services actually need. For local moves, we charge by the hour. Depending on the actual number of movers and hours your specific move needs will determine the total cost.
Do you offer insurance in case something is damaged?
Yes, we do. There is basic coverage included at no additional charge on every move. However, if you are interested in a higher level of protection we have plans to meet those needs as well. Make sure to check your homeowners or renters plan as well, often times they will cover you while you’re moving. Accidents happen, and we want to make sure that your possessions are safe and sound. So be sure to check out our moving insurance page and learn more about how you can be insured during your move.
