Getting a survey done prior to your move is recommended because not only can we can provide you with a quote based on the estimated and volume of your shipment, we can help you stay within a budget so that you don't get a shocking invoice. 

Our motto is to provide you with information so that you can make an informed decision.  We have helped thousands of customers relocate and yes, we have answered alot of questions and here are the following five most frequently asked questions. For more FAQ's please click on this link.

Q: Do I need to put down a deposit before the moving date? No, Premier Van Lines International will not ask for a deposit before the moving date. In fact, you should be wary of any moving company asking for a deposit before any move begins. It can sometimes be hard to get back your money from other moving companies if something goes wrong or the move is cancelled later. Should you need to cancel, change your move date, or postpone, simply let us know at least a couple of days in advanced so that we can notify the movers and not come to your home unnecessarily.

Q: How do I get a survey?  As a courtesy, we offer free in surveys initially by phone and then in person.  Typically, the survey will take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete.  The surveyor will be able to provide an estimated cubic feet and weight.  Once the survey is complete, we will send you the results for your move.  In addition, we will provide a quote based on the results; however, this does not mean that this is how much you will be invoiced. If the survey is more than what you anticipated, you have the option of downsizing to reduce the overall cost or just take the entire lot. 

Q: How do I avoid a shocking invoice?  Premier Van Lines International's policy is to give you an all inclusive realistic quote.  We don't quote low just to get your business and then jack the price up later on.  One of the major complaints that we hear from people who have been burned previously by other companies is the amount of the final invoice.  The actual invoice is sometimes two if not three times more than the initial estimate and unfortunately, they had to pay on the spot for the excess. This approach leads to increased instances of resentment toward the moving company in question and this is definitely a business practice that we do not care for nor implement.  In fact, we are very cognizant about your well being and will what we term, "intelligently" move your household goods and not blindly load everything up resulting in a shocking invoice.  If you state a budget that you want to adhere to, we will help you do so. It doesn't do you or us any good if you can't pay the bill.  

Q: Do I pay the movers directly on the moving day?  No, our company will bill you by e-mail, usually within one week of the pickup date.  If you are having the government or your company pay for the move, simply let our company know the contact information for the person(s) in charge of payment. For some large shipments, it’s often best for the customer to contract directly with the local agent for hourly loading help (and unloading help at the destination city); our company will advise you on this according to your moving needs and budget.

Q: What is the typical transit time to my destination?  The transit times are generally 8-15 weeks total. For more FAQS, please click on this link. FAQS
