Questions the Relocation Consultant Will Ask

Relocation Consultant Questions

Are you making a move and don’t know where to start? One of the initial steps in the moving process is a consultation with a moving expert. Our experienced Relocation Consultants are ready to help you. Having them come to your home for a free estimate is the perfect time to discuss your needs, ask questions, address concerns, and ultimately, receive an accurate estimate for your move.

To help you prepare for this key meeting, we’ve compiled a list of questions that our consultant is likely to ask during their visit to your home. By understanding these inquiries in advance, you can streamline the estimation process, ensuring that every aspect of your move is carefully considered. Let’s dive in and discover the essential questions that will pave the way for a smooth and stress-free relocation.

Do you have a move date in mind?

Our consultant will ask about your possession dates, your ideal date to move, and whether your dates have any flexibility. The sooner your move can be booked, the better. Weekends and month ends can be busy, and we may have more availability if your move can occur during the middle of the week or month.

Which items, if any, are not going to be moving with you?

From time to time, customers will be donating or selling some furniture pieces before they move.

Are there items you have ordered online yet to be delivered to be added to your move?

Bigger items not accounted for can affect your estimate.

Do you need packing services?

This can range from a full-home pack to simply having us pack up your china cabinet.

Will you need to put anything into storage?

Sometimes possession dates don’t align, and we can help with any gap times you encounter.

Are you moving into or out of a space that has special access requirements?

Perhaps an elevator needs to be reserved for move day or we can’t get our tractor/trailer into your cul-de-sac (in which case, we would coordinate the use of a shuttle).

Will you want additional cargo protection coverage for your belongings?

Our consultant will ensure you understand the coverage options available to you.

Are there items outside or in a shed that will need to be moved

Articles such as play structures, patio furniture, or your lawn mower may not come to mind when you think of packing up your belongings.

Do you have any exceptional value items

These would be any of your possessions valued at $5000 or more.

Do you need a vehicle shipped?

We don’t haul vehicles, but we work with companies that do!

Will your contact information (phone number) be the same once you reach your destination?

Should we need to reach you after your move for any reason.

There is a lot to think about when you are moving, but when you can break it down step by step, question by question, it will make your decisions much more manageable. Call us today to arrange an in-home estimate with one of our relocation consultants. Having someone to walk alongside you throughout the move process is invaluable!
