How to Use a Moving Quote to Your Advantage

How to Use a Moving Quote to Your Advantage
Published on Tuesday, 16 August 2011

If you are thinking about hiring a moving company but are not sure if you can afford their services, the best thing to do is get quotes from varying companies. Moving companies charge similar fees, but they are never the same. So, make your own research to find the best deals out there.

The quote determines the rough cost of the entire move. In a way, it is like a binding contract that keeps you from paying more than agreed upon.

However, it is crucial that you are honest and detailed in describing your moving information to get accurate quotes.

Before you call various moving companies for quotes, make sure you are ready with all the information needed to make an estimate. By this time, you should have already figured out which items would be moved and which items would be discarded.

Moving estimates are often given for free.

Therefore, there is little reason why you would not want to make use of them. Compare the rates and services to figure out whether you would be better off renting a truck or hiring a moving company. Even if you have allotted a budget for a moving company, it is still advisable to ask for free quotes so that you don't blindly sign a contract and end up paying more than you are supposed to when the move is complete. Use free moving quotes to your advantage.
