Planning an international move can be quite hectic. There are so many things to take care of: filling in forms, canceling subscriptions, starting a new life, saying goodbye to friends and family, making decisions about what to bring and what to leave behind …
To make things a little bit easier for you, we use G.U.E.S.T. (Gosselin User Enabled Survey Tool), an online survey tool that will help you get an estimate of your international moving costs. All you need is a smartphone with a camera and a little time to record your household goods.
The benefits of using an online survey tool
Conducting an online survey is very simple. You film your household goods with your smartphone and the tool’s AI identifies all the items and calculates the packing requirements to create an inventory list. Based on this list, the experts of Gosselin Moving will make an estimate of the costs to move your items to your new destination.
Using an online survey tool like G.U.E.S.T. has several benefits:
- An online survey saves you the hassle of making an appointment with one or more moving companies to get an estimate.
- You can conduct the online survey whenever it suits you: outside office hours, on the weekend or even during your lunch break.
- The tool uses AI to make an estimate and is just as reliable as an estimate made after a home visit.
- G.U.E.S.T. is a web-based tool, so there is no need to download or install anything.
- It’s a completely digital, and thus covid safe, way to obtain a moving quote.
- You quickly receive a non-binding and highly accurate estimate. Are you interested in using our services? Then we will use the estimate to make a binding quote.
