Need Moving Quotes? Why Getting The Exact Quote Stated Is Crucial To Your Move

Sep 10, 2008
For most of us, cost of a commodity matters a lot when it comes to purchasing it. May it be your household stuff of hiring a moving company the same rule applies. But some times making a wrong choice ends up in losses that cost you much more. If you plan to move to a new place you might hire a moving company that promises to keep your moving expenses low by providing you a low moving quote. But beware; you final bills can be very different than the moving quote handed over to you by the moving company.

Hiring an unreliable and cheap moving company can pile up your expenses. Such companies give a moving quote that looks very reasonable but levy charges later. If you do not clarify the details of the billing in advance there are good chances that you end up in a bill that is far more than the moving quote. You may be charged extra for packing and unpacking your stuff, packing materials as well handling special breakables. Moreover the company is not answerable for loss or breakage of any of your item.

Apart from choosing a wrong moving company, a major reason for difference in initial moving quote and final billing is that people do make a proper list of items that they need to move. Every time they are negotiating with a moving company about their items they want to shift, they tend to forget to mention one or the other. Finally when things are being moved, they tend to move much more than what was actually written in the moving quote. As a result they end up paying extra charges for shifting stuff that is not there in the list.

Sometimes there are items that you are not sure about moving. It is always wise to ask in advance from the moving company as to what charges the moving company may take in case the items need to add at the time of shifting. You can add the cost to the initial moving quote and make your budget accordingly.

The biggest mistake on the part of the consumers that lead to a discrepancy in the initial moving quote and the final billing is that they do not analyze their moving quote properly before they accept it. It is very important to understand the moving quote as to what the billing method is, what services are included in the billing and what will be charged extra. They hesitate in asking details about the billing from the moving company. It is desirable that you take the details of every thing that is mentioned in the moving quote and about things that are not mentioned.
