Moving companies from all parts of the country offer free estimates. This estimates will help anyone who plans to move or use their services get an idea about the price that they ought to pay to the company. Basically there are two types of estimates which people who are moving needs to know about.
The first type of estimates are the most common one, they are done over the phone. You call the moving company and tell them about the things that you are taking along with you. This recitation of things is not that accurate as compared to an in-house estimate. But this is a good method for those who want to save time and are okay with having a rough estimates of the price that they ought to pay.
The other type of estimate are in house. This is where a representative of the moving company comes to your house and goes over your thing and gives you an estimate.This can be costly thus not all companies offers this service.
