Don’t Be Tricked by Moving Companies
Whether it’s your first time making a move or the nth time, it sure is a daunting and stressful process in choosing the right moving company for it. In the end, not all the moving companies you will find are equal and when it comes to prices, the stress you feel may intensify your decision of which suits to your budget. Fortunately, there are tips that can help in your moving process.
You might want to consider the following tips to ensure that you’re hiring the right company and that you are not being tricked on the price for such.
Tip number 1. Make sure that you have a price to compare – as strange as it may gets, there are unscrupulous companies that are not giving you quotations or estimates of the cost of the move. It’s considered to be a red flag in the industry so if you have encountered such company while searching for one, quickly eliminate them from your list.
A great company will always make inquiries of the number of goods and furniture to be moved, any special items that are part of the process, the size of your household and the likes prior to beginning with the process. So be sure that you always have a price to start with or else, you’ll find yourself paying for a heftier price than what it should be.
Tip number 2. Cheap isn’t always better – it is very hard to ignore offers of moving companies that are so low. But as much as possible, keep yourself away from this temptation by asking one simple question, is it reasonable? There is a likelihood that you’d be disappointed with the service you are going to get if for instance that the quote is lower than average. On the other hand, prices that are too high don’t indicate a sign of great service either. Thus, you have to learn how to evaluate and balance things.
Tip number 3. How the company computes the cost of move – make it a point that you have inquired how they have come up with the price. Any reliable company will gladly show this to you and explain their methods of estimating the price. Avoid those who give vague responses or those who don’t have no method at all because this shows lack of responsibility and reliability.
Tip number 4. Get and review multiple bids – to assure that you only get the best deal and a fair price for the service, it’s wise to get several quotes from multiple companies and do comparison of their offers.
