6. Hopefully They Offer On Site and Custom (not automated) Estimates

Many popular moving companies make estimates with an automated computer system or office worker but you should make sure whoever is providing the quote has moving experience. For larger jobs, it may make more sense to have an on site estimate for accuracy.
