VERY IMPORTANT – IF YOU ADD ITEMS AT PICK-UP OR IF THE ITEMS ARE A DIFFERENT VOLUME AND/OR WEIGHT FROM WHAT IS ITEMIZED ON THIS ESTIMATE:
1. The mover may provide you with a revised estimate
2. DO NOT allow the mover to load the truck or perform any services before you agree in writing to the new estimate
3.

Any balance due above the binding estimate would need to be billed by the mover thirty days after delivery.
This is why we ask you to notify us of modifications at least 3 business days before the scheduled pick-up date, to avoid surprises at pick-up! On the day of pick-up, your foreman may offer you a newly revised estimate listing all costs for the entire move including the additional services ordered or additional items to be moved, if any. The total price will be the same as the price listed on this estimate if your inventory’s estimated weight/volume has not changed and if you do not require additional services. If your inventory’s estimated weight/volume increases or if you require additional services, however, then your price may change based on the rate per pound and/or cubic feet stated in this estimate.
