The first step in choosing a company to handle your move is obtaining an estimate. This service is free of charge and involves having a professional estimator come to your home to see what you intend to move and calculate the approximate volume of your shipment. Because rates are largely based on a shipment’s size, an estimate allows a shipping company to give you their best rate which, in turn, gives you an idea of how much money you can expect to spend. Furthermore, it lets the moving company know how they can best prepare for your particular move which will enable them to do the future job as efficiently and professionally as possible.
To set up an estimate with Rainier, call our toll free number – 1-800-426-9928 and provide us with:
- 1. Your full name
- 2. Your home address or address where your goods are stored
- 3. Your best contact phone numbers and e-mail addresses
- 4. Your preferred dates and times to meet with one of our estimators
On the date set, our estimator will come to your home to take a look at your goods and prepare a report using a standardized table of measurements which will then be sent to Rainier. All goods which are not currently at your home, but will be purchased or added later, should be mentioned so they can be included in the report.
Once this report is complete, a Rainier representative will contact you to review the results, discuss your options and costs and answer any questions you may have. Afterwards, a written confirmation will be sent to you.
Remember: The visual survey and estimate are free and involve no obligation on your part.
