Moving Quotes

No matter what way you look at it, moving is a task. You can help make that task just a little bit easier by obtaining your moving quotes as early as you possibly can. How early? You should start getting quotes from several movers the moment you know that you are going to need their services. The following tips are provided to help you know what to look for when obtaining these quotes.

Never pay for a quote. Moving quotes should always be free. There are so many movers out there at this very moment that are competing for your business. Those movers will have no problem giving you a free quote for your move.

How to Get Cheap Moving Quotes

If you can offer a little flexibility with your moving dates, you could end up paying a lot less for your move. Moving in the summer? Your moving quotes will no doubt be higher than if you were to move during the winter. The same goes for moving on a weekend versus moving during the week.

When you obtain moving quotes online or by telephone, potential movers will base your pricing on the list of items you have to move, which includes all boxes and furniture. You could get charged extra for each item that a moving service had to move that was not included in your list of items; therefore, if you don’t have an exact number of items, overestimate the amount rather than underestimate.

Type of Move Affects Moving Quote

Know the difference between basic and full-service moves. Many companies will include basic packing services with their moving quotes. The keyword here is basic. This does not mean that the movers will pack up everything you own and put it into the moving truck. Basic packing means that the company will load your already packed items in the truck and secure them so that they are not damaged during transport.

If you need more assistance with your move, you should consider obtaining full-service moving quotes. Movers will pack your belongings, load, and transport them for you to your new home. When they arrive at your new home, the movers will then unload and unpack your belongings for you as well. Full-service moving services come at a higher premium and your moving quotes will most definitely reflect it.
