LOCAL MOVING FAQ

How do I get an estimate for my local Minneapolis move?

We offer both in-home surveys and virtual walkthroughs to provide estimates for local moves. Your local move coordinator will walk through your home with you room by room to assess what needs to be moved. They will perform the walk-through at a time that is convenient for you. If you choose an in-home estimate, we will set an appointment with you at your home. If you prefer our virtual walkthrough, you will simply use your smartphone or tablet to give our team a video walkthrough of your home.

Once the walk-through of your choice is complete, you will have two options:

1. A non-binding estimate - this estimate is based on the total weight of your shipment. Keep in mind that we will not know the exact weight until moving day when all your items are loaded onto the truck.

2. A binding estimate - the cost of your move is provided upfront. So, if the final weight is above or below the estimate, you will only pay the rate we quoted to you.

How can I be sure I’m hiring a trustworthy Minneapolis local moving company?

We’re glad you’re asking this question. It’s unfortunate, but the reality is that there are many moving companies that are not properly insured, especially for local moves. Pay close attention to the quote process. All moving companies must perform a home walkthrough prior to the day of your move. It is not legal to provide a quote without performing a walkthrough and survey. If the company is unwilling to commit to a specific price or if they offer vague pricing options, we recommend finding a different moving company in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

Perform online research through reputable, third-party websites. Once you have read through Google reviews, visit the websites of independent organizations like the Better Business Bureau (“BBB”). They can verify that the companies you are considering are established and accredited. The BBB website provides access to complaints and responses from the moving company. This can provide insight into how the company responds when their customers are unhappy with the services they received.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA, is another valuable source of information. This organization’s job is to make sure that all commercial carrier vehicles that meet certain requirements have a Department of Transportation (DOT) number. Once you have the DOT number, head over to the FMCSA website and look up the moving company’s compliance. You can also ask the moving company directly for their (DOT) number.

Finally, be sure to ask your mover for a record of all of the accreditations they have earned and the industry associations they have. Don’t forget to request their insurance information to be sure it’s up to date. Any reputable moving company is accustomed to supplying this information to its customers and will do so willingly

Do I need valuation coverage?

You will be automatically provided with a $0.60 per lb. valuation, free of charge. However, we are happy to provide additional valuation coverage to every customer that wants more protection. One thing you should keep in mind is that valuation coverage is not insurance. In order to procure insurance for your move, you will need to work through a licensed insurance company.

Learn more about your valuation coverage options in our blog post on the subject.

How far in advance should I start looking for a local moving company?

Ideally, we recommend that you begin the process no later than two months before your desired move date. It’s not uncommon for things to change once you begin the process and starting in advance will give you plenty of time to manage any unexpected issues or developments.

Have less time than that before you need to move? Don’t worry. Our team in Minneapolis has over a century of local moving experience, we can help you get where you need to go.
