Right Moving Company
Q: How to choose moving company?
You can check with Better Business Bureau for complains on moving companies.
Check the moving licenses of the moving companies.
Check the small words in the moving estimates that the moving companies send to you and Add your special moving requests to the estimates.
Do not count just on promises by the phone. Ask from the sells person of the moving company to add your special requests to the estimate.
Check the moving insurance that the moving companies offer you.
Don’t take the lowest estimate that you get from one of the moving companies automatically, because the lowest offer can be at the end of your move the expensive one. We recommend you to take an average offer.
Now it is a good time to explain about types of moving estimates. The estimate is very important part of your move.
There Are Two Types Of Moving Estimates:
A representative of the moving company come to your property and sees all the
actual household goods that you have.
Estimate By The Phone: Binding And Non-Binding.
You give the list of your household goods by the phone and the moving company sends you an estimate that based on the list that you provided.
Give all the information that you have, even over estimate. Usually moving companies charge
more for additional c.f (cubic foot). We recommend to go by weight, the charge per pound stays the same “all the way”.
Non-Binding moving Estimate
You give a general idea to the moving company about the size of your house/apartment and the moving company gives you an estimate that based on their experience with properties in the same size like yours.
