Getting an Estimate  
  • Arrange to have three estimators come to your home.
  • How soon does the estimate get to you
  • Was he/she prompt
  • Did the estimate have a ceiling price or guarantee within a reasonable percentage (usually 10 - 15%)
  • Be specific about what you are planning to take with you and what you are planning to have the movers pack and move.
  • As a comparison ask the estimator to quote on the larger items and boxes separately
  • Ask about insurance, what kinds of options they have and what other options may be available to you. Do they have a deductible?
