Everything you Need to Know About Moving Quotes
How True Moving Service Providers Differ from Scammers.
One of the biggest problems faced by people who want to move is deciding between estimates. As we know, most moving companies offer free estimates, and this gives people the opportunity to ask for estimates from as many companies as they want. But once they have them, very few people know how to read them correctly. Knowing what your estimate is actually saying can help you make the right decision when choosing between companies that offer a full moving service.
Binding vs. Non-Binding
There are two types of estimates: binding and non-binding. A binding estimate includes all the services your moving company will perform, as well as a final cost. A non-binding estimate is more of an approximation of the price your company will charge you. This price is not final and can change at any time during the moving process.
You’ve probably figured it out by now that a binding estimate is what you should look for. Although it usually is hire than the non-binding one,you can rest assured the price is final and won’t change. With non-binding estimates, on the other hand, the price may be changed by the contractor, during or after the project.
True estimates always come as a result of a thorough inspection of the job to be done. It is the only way movers can actually offer a fair and accurate estimate. Many residential and commercial moving companies will try to offer estimates over the phone. Make sure you request a meeting with one of the managers before signing up with such a company.
Perhaps the most important thing to look for when signing a contract with a company that offers a moving service is the final price. This means that the price you see on your estimate should remain unchanged during the entire moving process.
