Initial Quote

When calling a moving company to quote your move, expect the moving coordinator on the other end of the line to conduct himself in a detail-oriented way at all times. Starting with an assessment (inventory) of the items to be moved. This could be done through an in-home estimate, or over the phone, where the moving coordinator will ask you a series of questions, such as if you will be requiring packing services as well as the volume, type, and fragility of items to be moved. 

This is a crucial and necessary step in order to calculate the right amount of packing materials and equipment to be able to provide you with a 5-star service. If you get rushed through this process…this is a red flag and you’re most likely dealing with a broker! Run!
