At We Move U, we want to keep you informed. For your convenience, we have compiled some of the most frequently asked questions about the company and moving in general. As always, feel free to contact We Move U at 888-386-6757 with any questions you might have.

When is the best time to move?

Professional moving companies are busiest in the summer. The highest frequency of moves occurs from May to September. Take this into consideration, as well as weather conditions and your personal schedule.

When considering the best time, plan around your business hours to save money. Either move after hours or during the weekend to optimize your business operations, ease of the move and the cost.

The ideal time for a move depends on various factors – atmospheric conditions, holidays, government regulations, and moving policies. You should try to avoid peak season, if possible (summers and year-end). On a personal level, you should consider the urgency of the move, children’s education, and other family priorities. Better planning leads to a stress-free move.

How do I select a moving company for my upcoming move?

Look around for different companies serving your area and compare price, availability, and liability policies. Look for a company that is bonded, licensed, and insured. You may want to check companies’ records with the Better Business Bureau to get an idea of the quality of service.

When should I begin contacting moving companies for estimates?

The more notice you give your moving company, the easier it will be to tailor the move to your needs and schedule, especially during the busy season mentioned above. Six weeks from the move date is ample time to start bringing in estimators to complete a visual survey and provide a price quote.

How is the moving cost determined?

The moving cost is determined by the size of the move, the amount of movers and trucks needed, the amount of hours, if it is a local move, the size of shipment if it is an interstate move, and other services such as: packing labor, packing supplies, storage or disposal services.

What is a binding moving cost?

A binding moving cost is a moving cost that is not exceeded. It includes all the services you been provided and the list of your inventory that is to be move. At all times, the binding moving cost is to protect the customer from any additional costs. Any additional item or service is reflected through the final cost. The final cost can be discounted if your service needs change, such as deciding not to move items on the list or deciding to wave some services we agreed upon in the binding moving cost.

How do I get a binding moving cost?

Setting up a binding cost is as simple as meeting with our moving consultant. They will visit your office or business to visualize all your moving needs and then provide a custom plan and a binding moving coast accordingly or you may receive a binding cost based on accurate list of items to be moved.
