GPX understands that customers want to review comparative pricing and moving services before they hire a mover. With that in mind, we strive to provide moving quotes in a timely manner so you can move forward confidently with the decision-making process.
Instant Ballpark Quotes vs. Moving Quotes or Moving Estimates
Moving is complicated, and providing a truthful moving quote is paramount in providing realistic expectations for our customers. We understand the frustration of having to pay more than what you were told when the moving services remain unchanged. Sometimes moving lingo gets mixed up, and it’s easy to get confused between an instant ballpark quote and a moving quote (also known as moving estimate).
An instant ballpark quote is a very rough estimate that is based on the limited information that you provide to a moving company. It may not be the actual price that you will pay.
A moving quote or moving estimate is more involved compared to an instant ballpark quote. Moving quotes require you to provide more information to the moving company and for the mover to view the items in your home that you need to have moved.
GPX offers both in-home and virtual walk throughs so that estimators can see your belongings, the layout of your home and the areas in which the movers will enter and exit your home. During these walk-throughs, estimators review any special requirements that you may have and answer your questions and concerns. Soon after your walk-through, you’ll receive your official moving quote.
