When planning a move, it’s always smart to plan for the unexpected. But one area that you don’t want to be surprised is the pricing and cost of your move. Thankfully, the unexpected can be avoided if you are diligent up-front when comparing estimates and moving companies.
The price of your move is obviously a big concern. Moving is an expensive endeavor.
You want to feel like you’re being treated fairly with the service and cost. Unfortunately, not all moving quotes are created equal. You have to put some work to really understand what is being presented for your move. It would be a mistake to only focus on the bottom-line dollar amount without understanding what went into the pricing. Read our article on pricing to help give you an understanding of what goes into our quotes. Estimates from different moving companies may be based on different services, weight estimates, packing options, valuations, and many other factors. The cheapest estimate may not always result in a less costly move.
It’s extremely important that you understand what is included when you're comparing estimates. Ask your mover some specific questions:
- What services are included in this estimate?
- What services are not included in this estimate?
- What will impact the price that I ultimately pay?
- Is anything about this estimate variable and can change on move day?
It’s wise to be wary of low-ball estimates. If the pricing is “too good to be true” compared to the other quotes you are getting, it probably is. It’s also important to verify the quality of the moving company you work with - ask for recommendations, reviews, and referrals.
