Ideally the packing appointment gets scheduled right after receiving the move proposal from United Relocations. We recommend to book the move at least 3 weeks prior to the packing appointment.
Is a pre-move survey necessary in order to receive a proposal?
The purpose of a pre-move survey is to assure the parameters of the move like volume and item list matches the service proposal.

How do I prepare myself for the pre-move survey?
Think of the items that you would like to take with you to your next destination. Make sure you point out items that might be difficult to move or require special handling such as buddha statues or unusual items. Should you like to have a separate proposal with a list of ‘maybe’ items will we do our best to prepare this as an option. Check your electrical appliances for requirements and voltage in the destination country. Begin to select possible dates for the packing appointment.
