Why should I hire a professional Vererans Express Moving Company?

Hiring us delivers exceptional value on a day that can otherwise be very stressful. Moving can be both emotionally and physically draining, and handling delicate or bulky items with care requires specific moving skills. We highly recommend turning to professionals for this, as you would for many of your households needs, such as plumbing and electricity.

Is moving labor the only moving expense I should expect?

Moving labor represents the majority of the moving expense. However, you should also budget for packing supplies, such as moving boxes and tape, and for additional valuation (moving insurance) as needed. Veterans Express Moving Company takes special precautions with delicate or oversized items, such as flat screen televisions and chandeliers. These items often require a custom wooden crate, which will incur an additional fee.

Should I tip my movers?

As with other service industries, you may wish to thank your movers for a job well done by offering a gratuity.

What do I need to do to prepare my appliances for the move?

You should make certain your dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine, and dryer are empty. Additionally, movers are not trained electricians or plumbers – you need to arrange for the appropriate professional to disconnect your washer, lighting and chandeliers, and refrigerator from any electric and/or water connection. Most importantly, movers are not licensed to disconnect gas, which powers many dryers and ovens.

What kinds of moving estimates are there?

A moving estimate is an estimated cost of your relocation. There are two kinds of moving estimates:

A non-binding estimate: A projected cost for your move, but not the guaranteed price you’ll pay. The actual cost can be lower or higher than the estimate. However, a non¬binding estimate is based on the experience and know¬how, hence it is mostly accurate.

A binding estimate: The actual price you will pay in the end. It means that you’ll pay exactly the amount of the binding offer even if the actual costs are lower or higher than estimated.
