Hello, and thank you for visiting!

The best way to ensure your estimate does not go up on moving day is to hire a reliable and reputable moving company. Scam movers will often quote you a very low price, then tack on additional charges or claim your shipment weighs more on moving day.

Ask questions. When getting an estinate for your move, always ask the movers about the possibility of extra fees. Moving companies will sometimes add additional charges for things like star carries, long carries, supplies, packing materials, etc.
Get an in-home estimate. Never hire a moving company without receiving an on-site estimate. Any trustworthy mover will offer you a free on-site assessment of your home and shipment before you book your move. Make sure to be upfront and honest about everything you will be moving--adding belongings to your inventory on moving day will make your price increase.
