Frequently Asked Moving Questions
|The key to a smooth successful move is organization. From many years of experience, we have developed a series of frequently asked questions that will assist you in organizing and planning your move.|
|Q: When should I call Ready Set Movers about my move?
A: The sooner you contact RSM the better. By giving us more of a notice we are more likely to meet your moving schedule needs. You will also have more time to properly organize and pack your home to allow for a smoother stress-free move.
Q: What is a binding estimate?
A: This is a type of estimate that shows the approximation of the cost and breakdown of your move based on the services requested. If the customer adds additional services, such as additional items to move, packing, unpacking, etc, that was not included in the original estimate the total bill will increase accordingly. All binding estimates provided by Ready Set Movers are valid for up to 30 days.
Q: How much will my move cost?
A: The cost of your move will depend on several variables. It will depend on how large your home/office is, what optional services we are providing, how far away your origin and destination are and materials needed to safely move your belongings. If you would like a more accurate estimate contact us at (843) 882-7561 to schedule your estimate. Or fill out our free estimate questionnaire on our website.
Q: How and when do I pay for my move?
A: RSM requires a $100 deposit that will reserve your moving date and upon completion of your move that deposit will be put towards your final bill. RSM accepts check, cash and credit card as forms of payment for services rendered. Payment is accepted after all services are rendered.
Q: Can I tip my moving crew?
A: If you feel your moving crew did an excellent job and beat your expectations they would graciously accept gratuity for their hard work. In general tipping can range from $4-$6/hour/mover but this figure is up to your discretion.
Q: Should I empty file cabinets and dressers before the move?
A: When your home or office estimate is being done be sure to point out any file cabinets or other heavy objects. If you feel the cabinet is extremely heavy you can empty the top drawers of the cabinet to make for an easier move.
Q: Are there any items you cannot move?
A: Our insurance does not allow us to move hazardous or combustible items. Examples: propane tanks, paint, firearms, etc.
Q: Can you dispose of trash on my moving day?
A: We would be happy to dispose of your trash on move day. We do charge a disposal fee, which is dependent upon the amount of trash.
