A walkthrough, whether in-person or via a virtual source, is crucial to the planning process. In fact, moving companies are legally required to do a walkthrough with you in order to give you a binding quote. This is because it is difficult to accurately estimate the costs and time needed to move a home sight-unseen, and it allows you to be sure that you understand the true cost of your long distance move before hiring us.
At Suddath, there are two options for an in-home survey of your home to help us properly estimate your move. At your convenience and by your choice, our representative will perform either:
- An in-person home survey
- A virtual walkthrough
The virtual walkthrough can be done easily from your phone or tablet. This has become a welcomed, time-saving option for many customers because of the convenience it affords to their schedule. You arrange a time that is optimal for you with little interruptions where a representative can survey your home using an application similar to FaceTime or Skype. The move coordinator is guided through your home via a video-view to assess the layout, contents of your home and to understand any unique needs you may have.
We can then plan for the equipment and personnel needed to accommodate the transporting of your belongings. The more we can plan, the better we can save time and increase efficiencies for a successful move.
