Choosing The Right Moving Estimate

Sep 4, 2008
Moving your house or your office? Then you must be looking for a moving company that can get your stuff relocated at minimum cost. But before you go for a moving company it is better you get your self accustomed to the moving estimate types that you need to choose when hiring a moving company. Most of the people end up paying hefty bills because they choose the type of moving estimate that is leads to huge bills for relocation of their stuff.

Knowing the details of the kinds of moving estimate helps you to control your expenses of relocating. More over you tend to protect your self from paying hidden charges that the moving company may ask you in the end. There are basically three types of moving estimates.
1. Binding moving estimate
2. Non Binding moving estimate
3. Not to exceed type Binding moving estimate

In case of Binding moving estimate, the moving company claims that you need to pay a bill that is estimated in advance based in the estimated weight of the shipment. This may be taken as the fixed price for the relocating your goods to the destination. But you need to know that even if the company claims that you will not be charged any thing over the estimated price, the one who is loading your goods can charge you extra if he feels that the weight of the goods is larger than what is written in the papers. Hence you cannot spare your self from getting back to the company at the moment of relocating in case this situation creeps in. You can not stay in peace if you go for this kind of moving estimate.

The Non Binding Moving estimate gives you a moving estimate that is calculated based on the estimated weight of the shipment. This type of moving estimate is good when you yourself have a good idea of the weight of your goods. In case the salesperson makes an estimate that is less than the actual weight then too you are bound to pay only 110% of the moving estimate already given to you. For instance, if the moving estimate was billed for 1000 bugs and the actual weight is higher than the estimated, the moving company can charge you a maximum of 1100 bugs no matter what is the extra weight.

Not to exceed type Binding moving estimate is the type of estimate that can get the peace of mind you want while you relocate your house or office. In this type of moving estimate, the moving company agrees to that your bills will not exceed a particular limit. This type of moving estimate ends up in the same amount of bill that you get estimated with the moving company. Another advantage is that you may end up in smaller billing amount in case the final weight of your stuff comes out to be less as compared to what was estimated by the moving company. So the key to control your bills is by being present at the time when your goods are been weighed so that you can take advantage if any.
