During the in-home estimate , a sales representative from the moving company will come to your home. you will go over and walk through all over the house so the estimator will make a list of all the inventory of the items that you need to move. The list of inventory is the base of the estimating your moving cost.
when the estimator will finish the walk through you and estimator will talk about which moving services are needed, moving dates, pricing, and any of your questions about the move. The in-home estimate takes about 20 -50 min its very of house size and questions that you have.
Every move is different, but the factors of every move are the same: how many items needs to be moved, what is the location of the move, and what services you will need from your mover. there are a few basics that the moving company needs to provide you with an estimated price for your move. the moving company has no idea how many trucks and crew members to send, what equipment to bring, how long it will take the guys to pack and load and which moving service you need, without this information. the only way to have an accurate price for your move is to meet with estimator at your home.
first and foremost an in-home estimate is the best way to get the most accurate price of the move. The in-home estimate is the best time to get to know the moving company and your opportunity to interview them. At the time of the moving estimate, you can understand the moving process and ask all the questions that you have. Most of our clients say that the in-home estimate is the reason they choose Sky Van Lines.
The process for a phone estimate is the same process of an in-home estimate, only you will list the items that need to be move room by room over the phone with the sale representative guidance. If you move a smaller house or apartment, such as a two bedroom apartment or less, the moving company can do a very accurate estimate over the phone instead of in your home. However, if you like to do an in-home estimate instead, we are happy to oblige.
If your home is larger than a two-bedroom apartment, an in-home estimate is highly recommended to create an accurate inventory and it’s much more difficult to do so over the phone.
As soon as you know what you want to move and when you’re moving, you’re ready to schedule your in-home estimate.
This is usually right after you sell or purchase your home, and preferably about 3-4 weeks before your preferred move date.
