Everything You Need to Know About Virtual Estimates

Figuring out how much a move costs would traditionally require having a Hopkins and Sons employee out to your home. We would look at all of your rooms and items and calculate how much it would cost to move you to your new home. Depending on the size of your item, this could be a lengthy process. In addition, scheduling one of our employees to conduct the in-person survey could take a few days during our busy seasons.

Thanks to our new virtual estimating software, we can now provide you estimates using your phone. Our virtual estimates are as accurate as the in-person visits, but offer more convenience. This high-tech estimating tool lets you use your tablet or smartphone to walk through the rooms of your home and photograph your possessions. It might be hard to believe, but this method takes only 15 minutes on average to finish. In addition, the convenience is immeasurable. You don’t have to worry about making, keeping, canceling or rescheduling appointments.
