Deciding On A Moving Quotes That Can Actually Save You Money

Sep 10, 2008
Do you have to move to a new location for your home or office? No matter how you choose to move, shifting your house or office is always a tiring and pricey matter. If you hire a moving company to shift your stuff they give you a moving quote which is an estimate of the final bill. Now one of the most difficult decisions is to choose a moving company based on the moving quote. Different companies have different policies of charging and thus offer different estimates for same list of items. Here is some piece of advice that will help you to decide upon as to which moving quote you should select for shifting your possessions.

When you approach a moving company they give you an estimated moving quote that is based on your word about the items you need to move. The rule of the thumb is that you need to go for at least 3 or 4 moving quote from various companies before you decide to choose one. The moving companies do not charge any thing extra to give you a moving quote. So you need to take advantage of this and compare each one based on price and services they offer.

One thing to be remembered when you are to make a decision on a moving quote is that the least price is not the best price. Also paying unreasonably high for a service that can be obtained at a comparatively cheaper rate is not wise. So it is a good option to select a company that offers its maximum services at a reasonable rate that is some where in the middle.

Now analyzing the moving quote can be a Herculean task. Many times the moving companies play tricks while giving the moving quote. They propose a moving quote that is reasonably low while the final bill comes out to be quite greater than the estimate. The reason behind it is that they charge you for stuff that you think is free of cost. For example, the moving company may demand extra money for packing materials. If your house is on the first floor, they may add extra charges for lifting your goods to the first floor and so on. So it is a good practice to clarify things well in advance so that there are no hassles over the payment in the end.

When you decide to choose a particular moving quote, make sure that you do not make the entire payment in advance. You may give partial payment initially and commit to give the rest on completion of the job. Otherwise you may be left waiting long to get your stuff shifted
