Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you cost more?
We charge the correct price to do the job properly. If it’s more than you were quoted by another company, you have to ask yourself a couple questions. Have they come out to take a look and give you a price in writing, or was it a “happy number” over the phone? Are they a reputable company? Is everything included in their price, or are there going to be hidden fees?
When House to Home Moving comes out to provide you with a free in-home estimate, the estimated price is the not to exceed price for the move. That means if it takes longer, you don’t pay more. You also get the same crew for your move no matter how many days it takes. House to Home Moving is also a direct shipment company. That means, no layovers, exact times for loading and unloading, exact pricing, and no worries.
What are your payment options?
We make it easy at House to Home Moving when it comes to paying the bill.

What is your cancellation policy?
We typically require a $100.00 deposit on local jobs and half the cost of the move on long distance jobs.
