We recommend doing an in-home survey, but we do also provide a virtual walkthrough, which can be done from your phone or tablet.
An in-home survey allows us to be able to come in and make sure we’re fully assessing the property, including any potential access issues for our trucks. You can meet the salesperson, look them in the eye, ask them questions, and talk through the logistics of the move. I think it also gives you a level of comfort for move day, that you’re able to meet someone ahead of time who represents Suddath.
However, we are as thorough as possible in our virtual walkthrough. We understand that time is of the essence these days, and it is a very accommodating option – you can do it early in the morning, or perhaps later when you’re home from work. I would compare it to a Facetime application, where you work with a move coordinator on one end of the call, and they would direct you while walking through your home with them, using your phone or tablet.
I would personally recommend having someone come to the home but again, I know with everybody's hectic schedules these days, it may be easier and more efficient to do the virtual walkthrough survey. Either way, we have a couple of different options to be able to work with you to get the estimate done.
