Most consumers select their moving companies over the phone. This is becoming increasingly popular and convenient for the person whose always on-the-go. In most cases you can go online and search for moving companies and submit information and within minutes be contacted with your moving quote. However, some prefer a one-on-one consultation with an in-home estimator. This service is also free and is provided by most reputable Maryland moving companies. Often moving companies reserve these services for individuals who are moving out of state or moving a large home(i.e. 3 bedroom plus) locally. Nonetheless, anyone can request a free in-home estimate for their Maryland move.
If you are contacted after submitting a request for a moving quote online, ask the individual to schedule you for a free in-home estimate. Or you can contact the moving company directly to schedule an appointment, it’s that simple. Please note most estimators can’t be scheduled on the same day, after 5pm or on weekends.
I recommend taking time to review the quote before signing. At least compare it with two other estimates from other Maryland movers. Remember the in-home estimate is a flat rate moving quote that has a not-to-exceed rate as opposed to just an hourly rate depending upon hours used.
