Types of Moving Estimates
“How much does it cost to move?” This question is one of the most widely used questions that moving companies hear on a daily basis. For years, customers have had dreadful moving experiences that made their move horrific, none of it directly associated with the actual move.
From terrible customer service, unprofessional movers, and the biggest; the actual price quoted prior to moving day. We will discuss the different type of estimates you may encounter during the moving process.
There are three types of estimates that you should be aware of before moving:
Non-binding estimates - are based on the actual weight of your items rather than a speculation of your weight. If you are provided a non-binding estimate, you are not required to pay more than the cost provided by the mover at the time of delivery. By law, movers are required to deliver your goods for no more than 10 percent above the price of an estimate. In most cases, non-binding estimates are preferred over binding estimates because the price usually tends to be lower. However, there is no guarantee that the non-binding estimate you received will be the final cost.
