The world seems like it moves at a much faster pace than it used to.
Instead of spending hours researching at a library, you can get an answer to (almost) any question in seconds by asking the voice assistant on your smartphone.
We no longer have to fumble with huge paper maps to find our way while we’re driving — GPS can give us directions in real-time.
And we can watch entire seasons of our favorite shows on demand (and get recommendations for other shows we’ll probably enjoy once we finish the first one!).
In today’s world, technology is embedded in our everyday lives — and AI (artificial intelligence) technology is revolutionizing the ways we do things.
In the moving industry, AI technology is also changing the way we think about moves — and streamlining the whole moving experience. Here at Appleton, we’ve always been dedicated to helping our customers have the best, most efficient moving experience possible. And we’ve become leaders in the AI moving industry by combining our time-tested experience with the efficiency and insights offered by AI technology.
If you have a relocation on the horizon, you might be wondering how moving companies (like Appleton) are leveraging AI in the moving experience and what to expect.
How Appleton Is Leveraging AI for Streamlined Service
“AI moving” might bring up images of robots packing your boxes and driving your items to a new location — but that’s NOT what we mean.
Our Texas company is built on decades of experience and friendly, personal service — and that will never change.
At the Appleton Moving Companies (including Scobey/Central), we primarily use AI to give customers fast, accurate quotes for their moves. Instead of a traditional in-person survey by one of our moving professionals, you can use your smartphone to video your home or office with a Pre-Move Survey — and our software creates an itemized inventory, calculates weight, capacity, and demand-based pricing. This gets you a quick, accurate, no-hassle, and no-obligation estimate for your move.
What to Expect from a Moving Experience (When the Mover Is Leveraging AI)
Now, you might be thinking, “A Pre-Move Survey sounds convenient, but will the rest of the move be any different if I use an AI moving company?”
So glad you asked! Yes, AI moving technology can streamline your moving experience from end to end.
Here are three things you can expect from your AI moving experience.
When your mover uses AI technology, you can expect a highly efficient and streamlined move.
- Fast, Accurate Inventory
Preparing to move can be stressful and time-consuming, and you might not have time for an hour-long walkthrough while someone takes notes on a clipboard. Our AI software can meticulously catalog your items (down to the smallest detail) in minutes. This not only captures the volume and scope of the move but also makes note of fragile items and technology that requires special handling. Knowing (and planning for) these details is the backbone of an efficient moving plan
- Quick, Accurate Estimates
When you’re planning a move, it can be stressful and frustrating to wait days to get an estimate from a potential mover. Through leveraging AI, AI moving companies (like Appleton), can get you an accurate quote within minutes.
- An Efficient Moving Day
When moving day arrives, AI technology can help movers to know exactly what to expect. Thanks to the detailed inventory and plan, movers come with tools, packing materials, and truck space precisely tailored to your relocation.
2. Great Communication
Leveraging AI in your moving experience can keep you informed and updated (literally) every step of the way. Whether it’s the status of your shipment or checking the estimated time of arrival, AI ensures you have the latest information at your fingertips.
- Tracking Your Shipment
With AI moving technology, you can track the progress of your belongings in real-time.
- Availability Updates
With real-time scheduling updates, you’ll understand the availability and timelines of your movers. And if there are any unforeseen changes, you’ll get that information quickly.
3. Less Stress
Leveraging AI in the moving experience is designed to take the anxiety and stress out of your relocation process. Through using AI tech, we at Appleton do this in several ways.
- Simplified Pricing that Adapts to Your Needs
Through dynamic pricing models like a “Low Fare Calendar,” AI moving services can help you budget for your move with less stress. By adjusting costs based on demand and the time of year, you can lock in the best rates without the guesswork.
- A Streamlined, Less Stressful Timeline
AI-driven logistics not only speed up the moving process but also reduce the time you spend worrying about the details. Using insights from the AI algorithm, movers can streamline the timeline of your move and be more efficient. As a result of these AI-driven insights, we can condense the process so you can focus on settling into your new space.
- Stress-Free, Hassle-Free Estimates
Waiting can be (very) stressful. AI technology empowers you with an instant estimate, so you can make quick decisions, confirm your booking, and check one more item off your to-do list. The straightforward process (from getting an estimate to booking the service) means you can breathe easier, knowing that your move is in capable hands.
Expect the Best Service
At Appleton, we understand that moving is more than loading boxes onto a truck; it’s partnering with a moving expert you can trust to handle all the details of your move with care.
In everything that we do, we seek to provide customers with the most efficient, professional, informed, and stress-free experience possible. And through leveraging AI technology, we’re able to take your moving experience to the next level.
Whatever your move looks like, with Appleton, you can always expect the very best in the moving industry.
