When a mover comes to your home to prepare an estimate they need to see everything in your home that is being moved. This is usually called a survey.
The survey also includes the amount of space your household items require on the moving truck, the distance it will travel and the timeline of your move. The mover determines the approximate cost and gives you a written Estimate/Order for Service. Please keep in mind that this document reflects estimated costs which could vary when the actual move occurs.
There is no cost for the estimate. The moving company must perform your survey at no charge.
