What to Expect with Your Local Move

What to Expect with Your Local Residential Move in Tulsa and Oklahoma City

It really doesn’t matter if you’re not moving all that far. You still want to ensure that your local residential move’s as easy as possible a move – no pressures, no problems, no provocations. Oil Capitol Relocation understands. We’ve helped thousands of Tulsa and Oklahoma City people move across the street or across town since we’ve been in business. What our customers especially like is our stress-free execution of …

The Moving Process

Here are the steps:

FREE Ballpark Pricing

When you first contact us to talk about your move, we’ll make sure you get a FREE ballpark estimate of what you can expect to pay – based on a preparatory awareness of what you’ll need. This figure might go up or go down, pending further analysis and what move options you select.

The Home Survey

We provide you with two options for helping us deliver a final, accurate estimate – each of which is intended to address your schedule in a way that’s most convenient for you:

  1. a live, in-home meeting with one of our expert estimators – also entailing a full-house survey of the items you’ll need moved, or
  2. a video inventory that deploys the most advanced technology, linking you to our estimator via your mobile phone as you go through your home and show us what needs moving.

The Written Estimate

Taking into account our consultations with you and the results of your Home Survey, we’ll provide you with a written estimate of the price you can expect to pay. This written estimate sets that cost with far better exactitude than our initial ballpark estimate. It speaks to every aspect of your shipment, including all moving services you’ve requested.

The Customer Agreement

When you’ve chosen your best options and accepted our terms and pricing, you’ll sign an agreement with us. This is your move contract fixing locations, move dates and times, the moving services you’ve picked, and other details such as cost, safety, and insurance. With this settled, we book your move.

The Move Plan

This is the point at which your personal Oil Capitol Relocation Move Concierge gets hold of you to …

  • affirm your move dates and the addresses that apply, including your current address and your destination address
  • vet which of our services you desire
  • counsel you in what to expect from your move, and
  • answer your questions.

Your Move Concierge is your one point of contact from now until we’ve got you settled into your new home. He or she will see to it that you’re up to speed on all that’s happening with your local residential move – to insure as trouble-free, headache-free, and harmonious a move as humanly possible.

The Pre-Move Confirmation

As your move date comes up, we’ll send you an email or give you a call to ensure that everything arranged is still ”on.” We’ll make a final affirmation of dates, times, locations, and other elements of the move to keep it on track.


As always, we extend you options to meet your needs and budget. You can do the packing by yourself (and we can provision you with the packing materials, if you like) … you can authorize our full-service Tulsa and Oklahoma City movers to provide backup packing assistance … or you can go with a customized plan where you get the packing started and we assist with specialty items.


When the truck and crew come to your house, they’ll introduce themselves and conduct a walk-through of your home to get an overview of the layout and what needs to be shipped. Then they’ll ready the home to safeguard it, padding stair rails, sharp corners, doors and jambs, and laying carpet covers to keep high-traffic areas clean. Next, they’ll follow a systematic loading procedure, where moving boxes are labeled and inventoried based on rooms and your needs when you arrive at your new home. Pieces that require disassembling – pretty much anything from entertainment centers to beds to swing sets – are properly taken apart at this time. Throughout the loading process, quality checks are conducted and communication with your Move Concierge is maintained.


Once we get your shipment safely to your new home – expeditiously and without damage, we see that it’s unloaded with great care. Our delivery services include …

  • employing protective pads and carpet covers to keep your your new home pristine while we’re moving you in,
  • systematic unloading – where we unload your possessions into the rooms you want them in, per your direction,
  • reassembly of items taken apart for the move – beds, the like,
  • unpacking – just give us the go-ahead; we’ll take care of if, and
  • debris removal – where, if you like, our people will take away all the empty moving boxes and supplies after the unpacking.

The Post-Move Follow-up

This is the step at which your exclusive Oil Capitol Relocation Move Concierge contacts you to learn how you felt about the move … review the quality of the services we delivered … talk about any concerns that might still need taking care of … and, above all else, THANK YOU for picking Oil Capitol Relocation! Your absolute satisfaction is what we care about most.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
