Onsite estimates are very essential when you are planning to move to a new location. Online estimates involve someone from the moving company to come at your office or residence and after carefully looking at your belongings, giving you an accurate estimate of the amount that you will be required to pay for the move.
Onsite moving estimate is a much better and accurate tool compared to online estimate as online estimates are solely based on the details given by the individual to the moving company. It is simply a statement of the luggage and it does not include the vital information such as the condition of the furniture, their exact shape and size. Other factors such as the absence or presence of stairs, elevators or escalators, which may not concern you, add substantially to your total moving costs.
Online quotes, which are just a rough idea of the amount that different movers will charge you may help you in short listing a few mover, but these figures can be lucrative and useless unless you ask the movers for free onsite moving estimates. It is therefore crucial to ask your mover for onsite estimates in order to plan your finances in a better manner while moving to a new location.
