The improvement of moving businesses using video estimates

There are several ways of how video survey improves your moving business. It lowers the cost for an accurate estimate, lets your customers feel more comfortable being able to get estimated moving costs online and in a shorter time, and makes it possible to get in touch with anyone around the globe!

  • Lowering the cost of an estimate

The customers mostly want to know the accurate cost for their move before they conduct it. So, in order to do that, moving companies used to send moving professionals to the home of a customer. That way, you were able to check what they own, and what’s actually gonna be moved. This was the only way to provide the customer with an accurate moving estimate. The cost of that was, in money, around 250$ on average. Not to mention that you were forced to send your professionals to their homes, never knowing if you’re even gonna be hired. Plus, those people visiting the homes of customers were unable to do anything else. Which is an additional expense?

Now, having a video survey platform, you can do all of it for a lot less time and money. There are two options. You can use a video survey with a survey bot. The cost of that is somewhere around 100$. Or you could use only a video estimate, which lowers the cost down to 20$ per estimate! Hence, the difference in what you pay for providing this kind of service is pretty obvious! It lowers the expense of 50-90%!!! Is there any reason not to implement video survey platforms into your moving company’s everyday activities?

  • Now, what does this mean to the customers?

Well, the same thing as for you! Only from another point of view. You save money for your moving company, and customers save time contacting more moving companies! As simple as that. To see how the overall experience of a customer is improved, we shall compare the usual in-home estimate to a new video estimate:

In-home estimate:

-Takes about 4 hours to be conducted

-The customer receives the estimate about a week later

-Maximum average cost: 250$

Video estimate:

-Takes about 15 minutes to do it

-The customer is provided with an accurate estimate in only 4 hours on average

-The cost is 90$ or lower

  • No obstacles in terms of the distance of the potential customer
