Getting Your Moving Estimates Right

Sep 4, 2008
The thought of relocating your house or office gets you a picture of undefined expenses. Whether you hire a moving company or plan your relocation your self, it is important that you plan your moving estimate well in advance. When you go to a moving company for getting your house or office relocated, you get a moving estimate from the company. But do you thing you should rely upon the moving estimate fully or research a bit to see if you will really end up the same bill in the estimate or not.

It is always wise to do an in depth study of the moving estimate that is handed over to you by the moving company. When a moving estimate is given to you, you should clarify about the type of moving estimate that the company is using to bill you. The company may bill you based on the Binding type or the Non Binding type moving estimate. There are companies that charge on "not to exceed type moving estimate". It is always better to clarify well in advance about the type of billing you will be getting when you get to your destination. The company should be able to give you a detailed picture of what is included in the moving estimate and what categories will be charged extra. All this will save you from coming across extra costs added up in your bill in the end.

In case you are amongst the crowd who plan to move on their own, then you have to include certain big and small expenses in your moving estimate. The first expense is for the truck that you need to hire to move your stuff to new destination. Having the right estimate of the size of the truck is important. Then you need to take into account the cost of labor that you need to pay for loading your goods. Then you need to take into account the cost of the packing material in your moving estimate.

No matter you are hiring a moving company or planning your relocation on your own, there are certain expenses that you need to take into account apart from cost of relocating your goods. The travel expenses of your family members should also be a part of your moving estimate. If they will be stopping at a certain place in between their way to your new home, the hotel charges and food expenses have to be included in your estimate. When you move to a new location, you need to pay connection charges for various utilities like water, gas, electricity etc.

So if you take into account all these factors while you make your moving estimate, there is no way that you do not get your estimates right.
