A home survey is recommended for all household moves of more than a studio apartment.
When shipping household goods internationally costs are based on the total volume (measured in cubic feet) or weight of your personal belongings. We offer a varied selection of shipping methods. The most common are LCL (Less than Container Load), where your goods will be shipped in our consolidated containers. The other option is FCL (Full Container Load), for the exclusive use of a 20ft. or 40ft container for your shipment.
During the in-home survey, our representative will visit your home. Together you will do a walkthrough of your property so the representative can take an inventory of what needs to be moved. The inventory is the key to estimating your moving costs.
After the survey, you and our representative will discuss which services are required, the move plan, pricing, and will answer any of your questions. The in-home survey usually takes about 30-45 minutes depending on the size of your property and how many questions you have.
What is the purpose of an in-home survey?
Every move is unique, but the factors of every move are the same: what needs to be moved, what are the specifications of the locations of the move, and what do you need from your mover. These are the basics that the moving company needs to plan the move and provide you with an accurate cost of services. Without this information, the company has no idea how many crew members and trucks or the size of the shipping container to send, what equipment to bring, what type of packing material, access information and how long the move will take, and which services you need.
Ones the survey is completed, we will provide you with our proposal shortly thereafter.
If a survey is not possible due to your location, limitations of time, or you simply your desire for a price without a visit, you can fill out our Online Estimate form
What is the purpose of an virtual survey?
Virtual Surveys are becoming as popular as in-home surveys very quickly.
This Virtual survey is a mobile app that allows you to connect with one of our sales representatives via video call and do a walking tour of your home. It is design for small moves or big moves and take approximately 15-20 minutes.
We will send you an email confirming the appointment along with a unique access code.
During the virtual moving survey, your sales rep can snapshot the various spaces while you do the walk through and log them in your customer portal with notes so that, on moving day, our crew is prepared to meet your specific needs.
