Wheaton World Wide Moving provides full-service convenience for local, long-distance, and international moves. And with services designed to make your moving experience as quick and painless as possible, Wheaton is our recommendation for last-minute moves.
If you’re moving on short notice—or you’ve put off planning ‘til the last minute (we’ve all been there)—then you probably don’t have a lot of time to shop around for the best prices or services.
Plus, moving companies often require you to schedule an in-home estimate before they tell you what your move might cost, which takes more time.
Luckily, Wheaton allows you to get an instant estimate online. While the online estimate won’t be an exact prediction of what Wheaton will actually charge for your move, it’ll give you a rough idea of what you should plan to spend.
Once you’ve got your quote, you can decide if you want to try your luck with a different company, or you can get the ball rolling with Wheaton by scheduling an appointment to get a more accurate in-home estimate.
While online quotes can significantly accelerate the planning process, they’re not entirely unique to Wheaton, unlike the next service we’ll mention . . .
If you’ve got a big budget and you need to get where you’re going quickly, then Wheaton’s Priority Relocation Service was made for you. For Priority Relocation customers, Wheaton expedites the shipping process to meet deadlines (if possible) and guarantees delivery dates.
For every day your Priority Relocation shipment is late, Wheaton will pay you $150, so you know the company takes your schedule seriously. Of course, Priority Relocation moves are much more expensive than normal moves with Wheaton, though we can’t say exactly how much they cost because prices vary from one move to another.
Unfortunately, Priority Relocation Service is only available for shipments between 3,500 and 6,000 lbs. This restriction should be fine if you’re moving out of a two- or a three-bedroom house, but if you’re moving out of something more like a studio apartment or a mansion, you probably can’t take advantage of this service.
