  • Step 2: Pre-Move Survey

Within 24 Hours after you initiate your UAB move, your Armstrong Move Coordinator will contact you to discuss the details of your move and will schedule a pre-move survey. Generally, the survey is performed by one of our 900+ Authorized United Van Lines Agents around the globe; however, if you have a household goods, office, and sensitive laboratory move, our Armstrong team will personally travel to your origin city and perform the pre-move survey.

The results of the pre-move survey will determine the scope & size of your move. Once completed, your Armstrong Move Coordinator can assist in your planning and move date selection.

  • Step 3: Planning Your Move

A packet can be e-mailed to you containing a pre-planned moving guide and a “Your Rights and Responsibilities” booklet. If you have any questions or want more information please do not hesitate to call and we will respond immediately.
