What to Expect with Your Local Move

What to Expect with Your Local Residential Move in Colorado Springs

Okay, so you’re not moving very far. You still want to insure that your local residential move’s a trouble-free move – no hitches, no headaches, no heartaches. A-1 Freeman Moving Group is here for you. We’ve helped thousands of Colorado Springs people move across the street or across town in our years of business. What our clients particularly value is our stress-free handling of …

The Moving Process

These are the steps:

FREE Ballpark Pricing

When you first meet with us to discuss your move, we’ll make sure you get a FREE ballpark estimate of the price you’ll likely pay – reflecting our precursory awareness of what you’ll need. This amount may rise or fall, relative to additional analysis and what move options you select.

The Home Survey

We provide you with two options for helping us arrive at a final, accurate estimate – either of which is meant to address your schedule in a way that’s most convenient for you:

  1. a live, in-home conference with one of our expert estimators – encompassing a room-to-room survey of the possessions you’ll need transported, or
  2. a video inventory that puts leading-edge technology to work for you, linking you to our estimator via your mobile phone as you move through your home and show us what needs moving.

The Written Estimate

Based on our consultations with you and the results of your Home Survey, we’ll deliver a written estimate of the price you can expect to pay. This written estimate nails that cost down with far better specificity than our first ballpark estimate. It speaks to each and every aspect of your shipment, including all moving services you’ve chosen.

The Customer Agreement

When you’ve selected the options you want and accepted our terms and pricing, you’ll sign an agreement with us. This is your move contract fixing locations, move dates and times, the moving services you’ve selected, and other details such as cost, safety, and insurance. With this concluded, we book your move.

The Move Plan

This is the stage at which your very own A-1 Freeman Moving Group Move Concierge speaks with you to …

  • confirm your move dates and the addresses involved
  • affirm which of our services you desire
  • inform you of what to expect from your move, and
  • answer your questions.

Your Move Concierge is your one point of contact from here on out. He or she will see to it that you’re apprised of all that’s happening with your local residential move – to make for as trouble-free, headache-free, and harmonious a move as anyone can provide.

The Pre-Move Confirmation

As your move date approaches, we’ll email or phone you to affirm that everything arranged is still a “go.” We’ll make a final affirmation of dates, times, locations, and other factors regarding the move to keep it on track.


As is usual with us, we give you options to meet your needs and budget. You can handle your own packing (and we can deliver the packing materials, if you like) … you can authorize our full-service Colorado Springs movers to help you pack … or you can get a personalized plan where you get the packing started and we help with specialty items.


When the truck and crew come to your house, they’ll introduce themselves and conduct a walk-through of your home to get familiar with the floor plan and what needs moving out. Then they’ll prepare the home to shield it, padding stair rails, cramped corners, doors and jambs, and setting down carpet covers to keep high-traffic areas dirt- and damage-free. Next, they’ll employ a systematic loading procedure, where moving boxes are labeled and inventoried based on rooms and your needs when you arrive at your new home. Items that should be disassembled – anything from entertainment centers to beds to swing sets – are carefully torn apart at this stage. During the loading process, quality checks are performed and communication with your Move Concierge is maintained.


After we get your belongings safely to your new home – expeditiously and without damage, we unload it with great care. Our delivery services include …

  • employing protective pads and carpet covers to keep your your new home safe from any sort of damage during the move-in process,
  • systematic unloading – where we set your belongings into the rooms you want them in, as you point out,
  • reassembly of items broken down intentionally for the move – beds, the like,
  • unpacking – just let us know; we’ll get it done for you, and
  • debris removal – where, if you prefer, our people will dispose of all the empty moving boxes and materials after the unpacking.

The Post-Move Follow-up

This is the step at which your exclusive A-1 Freeman Moving Group Move Concierge calls you to learn how you think the move went … analyze the quality of the services we performed … address any concerns that might still need taking care of … and, especially, THANK YOU for picking A-1 Freeman Moving Group! Your complete satisfaction is essential to maintaining the quality of the services we offer to everyone.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
