Online moving estimate example.

Starline Overseas Moving - Quote for Long Distance Move

20,180 lbs from Nevada to Washington? Anyone interested? How about 8,443 lbs from  Canada to Botswana? Or an intra state move of 6500 lbs. from a customer that lives 150 miles from the nearest moving company. See the details here.

 

Moving companies that use MovesOnline.com on their website receive thousands of online inventories every year from customers. These three, which came in within minutes of each other last night, demonstrate the migration of moving customers from the phone to the web

 

The first move (20100) was submitted on the Five Star Moving website last night at 2:30 am. The second, to Botswana, on the Starline Overseas website. The third to Highland Moving in Calgary Alberta, is notable because the customer lives 150 miles from the nearest moving company. That sale is a slam dunk since no other Movers in the state offers a practical online inventory.

 

Below is an example of what your company would receive if you used MovesOnline.com on your website. The first half details the move requirements, the second shows the move preparation tips that are sent to the customer on your behalf and tailored to this specific customers goods:
