Virtual Move Estimates Vs. In-Home Estimates

The current COVID-19 pandemic has altered business-as-usual in many different ways across business sectors. One significant change in the moving industry has been the use of virtual technology for moving estimates. This technology was available before the pandemic, but many moving customers opted for in-person estimates instead. In this article we will explore the technology that is available, and make the argument that it is just as good as an in-person estimate, if not better, for its added benefits.

What is virtual moving technology?

Virtual moving technology allows you to get an in-depth and accurate moving estimate from the comfort of your home, by using a smartphone or tablet. An agent representative will walk you through the process and help you determine the following:

  • The total number of items that will fit into a standard moving truck
  • Total number of items and sizes to be moved
  • Total weight of your belongings
  • Special items and items that need to be crated
  • Space layout of your home on moving day
  • Entry/access points in your home for the moving crew on moving day
  • Special circumstances for moving day preparation

What are the benefits of getting a virtual estimate?

  • Prevention of unnecessary contact in your home during the pandemic
  • Schedule on your time instead of a moving company’s
  • Convenient, easy, and stress-free

Many moving companies have shifted towards doing virtual estimates for the protection of their customers as well as staff. RLD Relocation is here to answer any questions that you may have about the process.
