A moving company that performs a quick walk-through without noting what you plan to move and how is never a good sign. On the other hand, a thorough walk-through, in which the company asks questions about what you plan to move and how, gets the moving process off to a promising start.

At Advantage, we take our time and guarantee to make your move as smooth as possible.


Moving.com, a partner of Realtor.com, put together a list of some “do’s and dont’s” when searching for the right commercial moving company. Among them, not accepting a “guaranteed” quote. The site goes on to explain the three types of moving contracts…

  1. A non-binding estimate on your contract means the company cannot require payment more than 10% above the original estimate. Any overages must by paid within 30 days of delivery
  2. A non-binding to exceed estimate on your contract insures that you will not have to pay for any overages to the original estimate. The estimate is the maximum you’ll be required to pay for any services rendered.
  3. A binding estimate on your contract is supposed to be a guaranteed price for the move and all extras and services. If you request additional services (such as unpacking), any extra fees must be paid within 30 days of delivery.

A great way to find out if you’re selecting the right commercial moving company is to hear from customers who have used them before! In your initial meeting or walk-through, request to speak with some of the company’s past customers. Ask them what they thought of the moving process, how much it cost them and if they would be likely to recommend their company.


Some moving companies require a down payment of cash before the moving process gets underway. Reputable moving companies (like Advantage) should not demand payment until services have been rendered, and should not demand cash payment. Businesses that choose to work with these commercial moving companies run the risk of being swindled out of their money and property when the movers provide unprofessional and poor moving services.
