The surveyor will need to conduct a home survey to ascertain the volume of effects being shipped.
This involves him/her walking through the property room by room noting what items are to be moved and recording it on their electronic tablet.
Once the consultation has been carried out, White & Company will always provide a written quotation within 48 hours.
Our quotation will always outline exactly what is covered as per your instructions to the surveyor.
The quote is our contract. Once you have signed and accepted it, the price is set, so you will know exactly what the bottom line will be.
