What is a Pre-Move Survey? 

A pre-move survey is a tool used to help plan out your upcoming move. Pre-move surveys take inventory of the items in your home in order to determine things like packing materials needed, amount of boxes needed, and if extra services will be needed for specialty items. Traditionally, pre-move surveys are done face to face with a representative from the moving company of your choice. This representative takes inventory of all the items in your home and gives you an estimated price for your move. With a virtual survey, a representative does not come to your home, instead, you conduct the survey yourself virtually via your mobile device.
