Q. Why should i hire a professional mover?
A. Hiring a professional mover delivers exceptional value on a day that can be otherwise very stressful. Moving can be both emotionally and physically draining, and handling delicate or bulky items with care requires specific moving skills.

Q. Do i need an estimate?
A. Usually, a sales representative will be able to give you a good idea of a price range over the phone after getting some information about the items being moved, the size of the current location, etc. We offer Free Visual Estimates as well to provide a more accurate quote.
Q. How can i keep costs down when i move?
A. Keep in mind that moving is not an exact science and that each move is different. But, a good way to keep costs down is to be as prepared as possible for when the movers arrive to cut down on using any unnecessary time. Moving boxes is one of the most time consuming areas of a move, yet are some of the lightest things to move.
So, try to use the same size boxes and be sure they are taped up and labeled correctly for the movers. Stack them up, so the movers can just place them on the dolly and go. Also, while the movers will be happy to do so, disassembly of furniture takes up time as well. You can try to disassemble any beds, desks, etc to cut down on
time. In short anything that you can do yourself or anything that can help the movers move faster will cut down on your cost.
Q. Are there any unexpected costs i should be aware of?
A. NO! Champion movers has absolutely ZERO hidden fees!
Q. Is moving labor the only moving expense i should expect?
A. Moving labor represents the majority of the moving expense. However, you should also budget for packing supplies, such as moving boxes and tape, and for additional valuation (moving insurance) if needed. Champion movers takes special precautions with delicate or oversized items, such as flat screen televisions and chandeliers.
Q. How accurate will the moving estimate be?
A. With years of experience, our sales team prides themselves on providing the most accurate moving estimates in the industry. Our proprietary sales system ensures that we work closely with every customer to fully understand his/her moving needs and to provide a moving estimate that reflects those needs.
Be sure to offer as much information as possible at the time of the estimate – this includes reviewing the inventory
for accuracy. Neglecting to mention additional items, or difficult areas of access, at the time of the moving estimate almost always results in unexpected costs for the customer.
Q. Should i tip my movers?
A. As with other service industries, you may wish to thank your movers for a job well done by offering a gratuity. While the movers do not expect a set amount, we suggest a tip based on your satisfaction with your crew and the overall move.
Q. Is valuation (Moving Insurance) necessary?
A. Although Champion Movers will take every necessary precaution on your move, unexpected damage can occur and it is important to make sure that your possessions are protected. We are able to offer valuation (moving insurance) to our customers at a very fair price due to the very low number of claims we file.
