Get Packing!Moving Quotes


A quote often serves well in providing peace of mind since you know in advance what your move will cost. They are often required when a move is being paid for by an employer or subsidized by the government. Sometimes customers ask for quotes to ensure they do not exceed their budget.

Another common reason that people request quotes for moving services is that they do not trust estimates given by movers. This is to be expected as many less reputable moving companies will give a low estimate over the phone just to get the job and then inflate the price on the day of the move. This is a common issue which plagues the moving industry. This can be avoided by making sure you choose a reputable moving company that you trust rather than choosing one just because it has the lowest rate. Two age-old adages come to mind; “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is” and “You get what you pay for”.

For very small jobs, quotes often make sense as they are often lower than the hourly rate which generally incorporates a minimum number of hours and a charge for travel time. For most other jobs, provided you chose a reputable company, an hourly rate will usually end up costing less than a quote. Quotes are based on estimates which, in turn, are based on an hourly rate. Unlike estimated prices, quoted prices can not vary unless the customer changes the scope of the work to be completed. When a moving company quotes on a job, they take into account several factors. These include the cost of visiting the client to conduct a thorough inventory of all items to be moved and any possible delays or unexpected circumstances that could arise during the move. For this reason, quoted rates will generally be set 15-25% higher than the estimated cost of a move.
