You probably think that moving prices are fixed. But they aren’t. Moving service price fluctuates based on demand, competition, and supply.
In order to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible when you move, here’s a list of things to look out for when comparing moving quotes:
1. Move Date
It’s important to note that moving dates vary widely between movers. So, ask your mover when he/she expects to complete your move.
2. Movers’ Experience
How experienced is the company? Are they licensed? Do they have insurance? How much experience do they have? Ask these questions before hiring a mover.
3. Insurance Coverage
Ask your mover if his/her company provides liability coverage, property damage coverage, and workers’ compensation. These coverages protect you from accidents during the move.
4. Packaging & Unpacking
Does the quote include packing materials? Does it include unpacking supplies? Is the quote itemized so you can easily compare costs?
5. Delivery Method
Do they provide door-to-door delivery? Will they bring everything inside your home or leave it outside? What happens if something gets damaged in transit?
6. Pickup Location
Is the pickup location convenient for you? Can you meet them at the destination?
7. Packing Materials
What kind of packing materials does the quote include? Is it all included in the cost?
