|MOVING OPTIONS is NOT a moving company. We do NOT have trucks or airplanes. However, drawing on a number of resources spread throughout the world, we can arrange for your move from anywhere to anywhere.
Neither are we a brokerage. We do not put your move out to bid, and sell it to the highest bidder, or the lowest for that matter. Rather, we are a contract sales organization, a forwarder, in a sense, with ties to several national household van lines and a variety of international forwarding companies.
When you request an estimate through MOVING OPTIONS, we will arrange for you to receive at least one and often several free estimates. We will explain the the differences, advantages, and disadvantages. You make the choice as to which company, if any, you will actually use for your move. There is no cost or obligation to you for requesting an estimate.
Whenever possible, the estimates will be based on information obtained by way of an in-home survey, done by a representative of a major van line. There will not be an inventory taken at this web site, or a request that you guess at your shipment weight; such information is almost always inaccurate, and misleading, either on the high or low side.
Once the survey has been done at your current location, the survey representative will provide the information obtained to MOVING OPTIONS, and estimates will be prepared and presented to you. You then will schedule the move with your MOVING OPTIONS move coordinator, who will make all the necessary arrangements with the movers you have selected.
This service is FREE to you. And we will always look for ways to help you save on the cost of your move. You will NEVER be asked to write a check or give credit card information to MOVING OPTIONS. You only pay the company which you finally select for your move. We are paid a fee by the carriers which provide the service to you!
