COVID-19 update: As an essential service putting safety first, all of our movers wear masks on every move.
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.”
