Ten Things You Should Know When Getting A Moving Quote

Young Couple with Stevens Boxes
  1. Whenever possible, get an in-house quote. In-home estimates are likely to result in a more accurate price once the move is complete.
  2. Always ask your mover for their D.O.T. #. This proves they are a licensed moving company.
  3. Always ask if the mover sub-contracts jobs to another mover. You should only trust movers that are affiliated with a national van line. Make sure the company is “an agent for” a van line like Stevens Worldwide Van Lines.
  4. Get more than one estimate and make sure to ask each mover the same questsions. It makes comparing moving companies easier.
  5. Review your moving quote(s) is detail. Be sure you understand all the charges.
  6. Always ask for references from the mover’s past customers in your area.
  7. Always request a binding, or “not-to-exceed a certain dollar amount” estimate.
  8. Always ask how long the moving company has been in business.
  9. Make sure the company is a ProMover and member of the American Movers Association
  10. Be prepared by knowing what to expect throughout your move.
