Whether you are moving into an apartment or into a new home, there are plenty of expenses involved in moving, such as closing costs on a home or security and pet deposits for an apartment. One way to help keep those expenses as low as possible is by getting moving quotes online. With moving quotes online you can quickly and easily find the company that will give you the best price to get your belongings from here to there.

The first step for receiving moving quotes online is filling out a form with your contact information. The companies will gather basic information about your move, such as where you are starting and where you are moving to and what size dwelling you have. They will also gather your e-mail address and phone number. Most of the time the phone number is only to confirm a scheduled move, but some companies will make sales calls.

After confirming that you are a serious customer, you will then fill out the second part of the form, which is an inventory form. You will have to list all the large furniture, appliances, televisions and other heavy items that you want moved.

Some items are included in the base price of the move, which includes the items the moving company generally expects to move with a 1-bedroom apartment, a 3-bedroom house and so on. Other items, such as a full-length mirror, can carry an additional charge, and some items they may not move at all for liability reasons. A moving company may not want to carry a highly breakable Fabergé egg, for example.

Filling out the inventory form accurately will help assure that the moving quote you got online matches the actual. Forgetting important information when you fill out the online form can result in an unpleasant surprise on your moving day. If you receive a moving quote online but forget to list a queen-size bed in your guest bedroom on the furniture check list, there will be an additional charge to move it. Many companies also have additional charges for two-story houses or upper floor apartments, so be sure to note this on your form also.

Finally, keep a printed copy of your quote with you on moving day. It can help save some potential disagreements during the move. By correctly utilizing your moving quotes online, you can eliminate some of the stress that comes with a move.
