1 WEEK OUT:
THE DAY OF THE MOVE:
Moving is stressful. Some might even say “Moving Sucks!". We get it. There’s the planning, the preparation, the packing…and that’s before the moving even begins! And of course the dreaded task of choosing a moving company. Where do you even begin? How do you know what to look for?
At Move Indy, we have been doing this for a while. We're here to share some helpful insights into selecting the right moving company! (Spoiler Alert - IT’S US!)
Quality Moving Service
Sometimes you don’t know what you’re getting (or not getting!) until it’s too late. Avoid disaster and ask the right questions up front! Here are some helpful example questions to ask your moving company:
How do you hire and train your crews?
What happens on move day?
How do you guarantee I’m satisfied with my move?
At Move Indy, we pride ourselves on hiring our own, local crews. We are a local Indianapolis moving company, and we hire from within our community. Each employee we hire is specifically interviewed, background-checked, trained, and supervised by us. You can rest assured knowing we are sending professional crews to complete your move! Additionally, we have a team of managers who check on every job to ensure it’s running smoothly; they are ready to respond to any issue that may arise. On move day, we will pad and stretch wrap every piece of furniture to make sure it’s moved safely. We provide all the necessary supplies and equipment - there is no additional cost for these services. Finally, Move Indy is fully licensed, bonded and insured - you can sit back and relax, knowing you are in good hands! At Move Indy, we move your stuff the way YOU would move your stuff! And we've got the reviews to prove it!
We do not believe in a “one-size fits all” approach. How flexible are the moving companies you’re working with?
Do they provide options for obtaining estimates and booking services?
Do they provide customized estimates tailored to your needs?
Do they offer discounts for bundling additional services?
At Move Indy, our flexibility starts with your first interaction with our company. Contact us in whatever way works best for you: call, email or even text! Need flexibility with how you get your estimate? No problem. We can schedule a free in-home consultation; you can complete an online checklist; or call us to create your estimate over the phone!
Only moving a few items? We’ll create a flat-rate estimate so you’re not paying for time you don’t need! Just need some help loading up your POD or UHaul? We’ll create a customized estimate for that, too! Want some help with packing, storage, cleaning, or junk removal? Move Indy provides ALL these services and offers discounts when you bundle them with your move!
We can do a little, or we can do it all! We do our best to tailor our estimates to your needs.
Don’t pay for time or services that you don’t need! Get your free, no-obligation estimate today!
We’ve all been there - you get the estimate, you book the service, and then the final bill comes…SURPRISE! It’s way more than you expected. Avoid this by asking some important questions up front:
How am I being charged for these services?
Which portions are flat-fees v. hourly rates?
What are the minimums?
Do you charge extra fees at the end?
Move Indy strives to provide accurate and easy-to-understand estimates. Our pricing structure is transparent and straight-forward. We provide written estimates to every customer, giving them the opportunity to review and ask questions before booking. We cross-check every estimate before beginning the job; any discrepancies are addressed in advance. Our customers are asked to approve start & stop times for all hourly labor, which eliminates any surprises on the final bill. All flat-fees are clearly displayed in the estimate and will not change. We pride ourselves on regularly coming in AT or BELOW our estimates!
WE know Indy the way YOU know Indy - because we live here, too! We are a local, Indianapolis moving company. Supporting Move Indy means supporting your community. We create local jobs and hire local crews.
Come experience the difference a local moving company can offer!
