First, choose the appropriate Event. This will tell us what kind of move it is and if you are requesting a cube sheet or just the video survey.

NOTE: only available times will be displayed.


Next page will show in summary details you already defined (1). In addition, you will see the list of details to fill out (2):

  • Enter your customer's first name, last name
  • Enter your customer's email if you want them to receive the automated confirmation email. (You can enter your email if you would like to receive the email, then forward it to your customer. You will not get any other confirmation).
  • Enter your customer's phone number (country code if applicable)
  • Enter your email and first name so that we will know who to give the complete survey and cube sheet to (if requested). Enter your first name so that shyft may use it during the survey and create a team handoff for the estimate or survey results.  
  • Check all that apply to this particular move
  • Enter any notes for the surveyor to help Shyft perform successfully and create a nice warm handoff back to you.


In the end, click on Schedule Event. Your request will be forwarded to Shyft directly.
