In order to ensure safe passage from origin to destination, we must allow "cushion space" for your belongings. This means that your move will take up more space than the actual dimensions of all the items in the inventory. Many people overlook this when stating how many small, medium and large boxes their move will contain.
Underestimating the "small stuff" (Your books, clothing, toys, tools, sporting goods and collectibles) can cause surprises for both you and us. Firstly, the price of the move will increase which is not a nice surprise. However, even more costly is the added time and lost space on a truck alotted to other customers scheduled on your route. When in doubt, adding a little more to the estimate is better in the long run.
