Frequently Asked Questions
It is sometimes said that moving is life's third greatest source of stress, behind only divorce or the death of a loved one. That's a pretty weighty undertaking. When you plan a move with Precision Movers USA, you will find that this doesn't have to be the case.
1How far in advance should I schedule my move?
We recommend scheduling your move as far in advance as you can. The farther out you can plan your move, the greater the availability you will have in choosing a date and time that is convenient for you. A general rule of thumb is to contact us no later than two weeks in advance of your desired move date. We realize advance planning is not always possible, and do our best to accommodate last minute customers as well.
2What day/date is best for a move?
Because complex events, such as a home closure or completion of construction, can be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, we don't recommend scheduling your move for the same day. Save yourself the stress of rescheduling and plan your move date for several days after your closing date.
3I want to do some packing and moving before the movers arrive. What areas would be most helpful?
Focus on packing, instead of moving. Smaller items and moving boxes can be moved very quickly by professional movers. Don't spend time trying to move these items yourself. Rather, focus on packing boxes, so when the movers arrive, you are 100% ready.
4Why should I hire a professional mover?
Hiring a professional mover delivers exceptional value on a day that can be otherwise very stressful. Moving can be both emotionally and physically draining, and handling delicate or bulky items with care requires specific moving skills. We highly recommend turning to professionals for this, as you would for many of your households needs such as plumbing and electricity.
5How much will my move cost?
We base an estimate for a local move on an hourly rate, which includes the drive time for each leg of the move: from the moving company to your original home, then to your destination, and back again to the moving company. Pricing for a long distance move is based on a flat rate, fixed price. Once we have taken an inventory of your furniture and other belongings and identified a timeframe for delivery, we are happy to provide a binding price for your move. If you prefer, we can also price a long distance move by weight.
6Is moving labor the only moving expense I should expect?
Moving labor represents the majority of the moving expense. However, you should also budget for packing supplies, such as moving boxes and tape, and for additional valuation (moving insurance) as needed. Precision Movers USA takes special precautions with delicate or oversized items, such as flat-screen televisions and chandeliers. These items often require a custom wooden crate, which will incur an additional fee.
