Get a Speedy Moving Estimate With Our Quoting Tool

Let’s talk money. Moving day is getting closer and you need to know how much it’s going to cost. Lucky for you, we created a quote funnel to give you a ballpark estimate. This online tool crunches numbers based on historical averages to create general moving estimates.  

Enter Some Basic Details  

To give you a well-rounded idea of how much your move will cost, our quote funnel requests some basic information such as:

  • Name
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • Preferred Contact Method
  • Personal or Business Move
  • Current Address
  • Destination Address
  • Estimated Move Date
  • Concerns: Duration, fragile objects, timeline, special requests  

Navigating The Quote Funnel

Let’s say the clock is ticking and you need a moving estimate now. You Google different companies and Bailey’s Moving & Storage pops up; you click the quoting tool and start entering some basic info for a move from Colorado to Utah. Check out this walkthrough video to see the final outcome:

Working with an In-Person Estimator

After you submit an online quote with Bailey's Moving & Storage, a coordinator will assign you an estimator. From start to finish, the estimator will stand by your side to execute the move. The representative's job is to evaluate all of your personal belongings and create a firm, written estimate. Generally speaking, there are two types of written estimates: binding and non-binding. These contracts inform customers of their moving costs and hold them accountable for their expenses. If everyone reviews and agrees with the contract, there will be no surprises on moving day; the process is smooth and simple.  

"What if an Estimator Can’t Reach Me?"  

With locations in Salt Lake City, Denver, Grand Junction, and Colorado Springs, Bailey’s has a team of dedicated estimators that cover both Utah and Colorado. However, in rare cases, an estimator will not be able to reach a location due to unforeseen circumstances. In this situation, Bailey’s would recommend that a customer use Yembo to perform a virtual survey of their household goods. Like an in-home survey, an assigned estimator would gauge the value of a customer’s move based on a video walkthrough. All that’s needed is a cell phone with basic video recording features.

Keep in mind that both in-person and virtual estimates can vary depending on circumstances. For example, requesting that our team pack, unpack, and provide long-term storage for your goods would increase your final cost. As a full-service moving company, Bailey's Moving & Storage offers different ways to assist all customers in their own unique way.

To get to that point, one of our moving coordinators would have to schedule a date and time for an in-person estimator to work with a client; this is always arranged after someone submits an online quote. Not that we don’t enjoy speaking to our customers via telephone, but our quote funnel ensures you don’t have to wait around on hold with customer service. We created the quoting tool because we know your time is valuable, and so are your household goods.
