The moving process

Let us look at what the moving process would entail.

  1. Request for an online quote

Firstly, you would have to request an online quote to get a rough estimate of what you should have as the moving budget.

If you visit their official website, you shall see the ‘Get a Free Quote!’ button at the top right corner. You will need to fill in your names, the zip code of the place you want to move from and the zip code of the destination. Then you have to enter a correct email address since the quote will be sent via email.

  1. Schedule for an in-home estimate

The in-home estimate gives you the exact amount of money you should pay to Bekins for the move. During this meeting, the representative from Bekins will enquire the services that you want included in the move so as to come up with an exact quote for the whole process.

  1. Logistics

If you plan on moving a business office, you will require sufficient planning to ensure that your business operations are not interrupted. Bekins provides you with a project manager to oversee the moving operations so to balance the moving and business operations.

  1. Packing and unpacking

You will have to pack all your stuff before the moving date. It is recommended you start packing early so that you will have sufficient time to pack everything well especially if you are doing this by yourself. If you decide to do the packing by yourself, it could take you about two weeks.

But in case you require Bekins packing services, you will have to pay for the services but it is worth it; it will give you a break from the rigorous and tedious packing process. You will have to discuss this with the staff that comes for the in-house estimate meeting.

  1. Loading and unloading

This is putting the packed things into the moving trucks. It is done by Bekins staff and you don’t pay anything extra for it.

The duration will depend on the amount of stuff you have for moving. Also once the truck arrives at your designated destination, the staff also unloads the things for you.
