Booking an in-home visit to get a moving quote
Most of the moving companies provide moving quote free of charge and without obligation. All that you need is to contact a moving company and book an in-home visit. A sales consultant will visit you to discuss when you wish to move, what you are taking with you and what you may need to store. Moreover, he will advise on what may or may not be practical to transport, assess any special packing or delivery requirements. In addition he would identify any other requirements such as parking permits, hoists or lifting equipment necessary for the safe removal of your belongings.
During the visit a consultant will need to view and inventory all items for removal,so please identify those items you wish to move, including any essentials you may prefer to send ahead by air, or any items you may wish to leave behind in storage. In addition, the delivery conditions at your new home should be considered for a moving quote.
