What happens when a relocation consultant comes to my home?

The relocation consultant will complete the visual survey of your household items. Once this is completed, they will calculate the weight, packing costs and any other charges related to your move.

Remember that the relocation consultant must clearly see what you are moving in order to provide you with an accurate estimate. Don’t be alarmed if the relocation consultant goes through your cabinets and closets or looks under beds and on top of cabinets. Crawl spaces, attics and cluttered closets can be deceiving, so be sure to point these areas out when the relocation consultant arrives. Similarly, if there are items you will be eliminating, be sure to point them out as well.

TIP: One word of caution that can save you a great deal of trouble on loading day: get rid of all items you do not plan to move. Not only will you save money by not paying to move otherwise unwanted items, but should you decide to move items not included in your estimate it is possible that there may not be sufficient room on the van for all of your belongings.
