Lowest Price Movers

 

If you’ve started planning your move, you’ve probably realized that the moving costs are one of the biggest expenses you will have to pay. Understandably, you would like to save money while moving so you may consider working with a low-cost moving company. But, it’s that a good idea?

The sad reality is that some cheap moving companies allure clients with really cheap rates. But then, after packing, loading, and transporting their belongings, they reveal that the actual price the client has to pay is much higher than the initial estimate.

That doesn’t mean that all low-cost moving companies are scammers. Some have really found a way to keep their rates affordable while still providing excellent services. So, here are some tips that will help you tell the good cheap moving companies from the bad ones.

Don’t Let Them Know Your Budget

When you disclose your budget before you receive an estimate, you allow the moving company to set the anchor. Because they know now how much you are willing to pay, they will base their estimate on your budget instead of the actual price of their services. Be wary of moving companies that ask you to disclose your budget first as it’s often a trap set to surcharge the rates.

Ask for an All-Inclusive Price

Make sure to ask for an all-inclusive price from the beginning and not just an estimate. This way, you avoid any hidden fees or last-minute charges that can increase the final cost of your move.

Discuss Your Move in Person Before Sealing the Deal

While it’s alright to ask for quotes via phone calls to get an idea of how much the move might cost you, make sure to meet with the movers in person and discuss your move in detail. Only after physically evaluating your possessions the movers will be able to give you a reliable estimate. That way, you can also ensure that you haven’t missed any details either.

Look out for Any Warning Signs

Pay attention to red flags that may indicate that the moving company isn’t trustworthy. For example, a professional moving company would never ask for a large deposit upfront. You should also be wary of companies that claim to have incredibly low rates or astonishing insurance coverage. If the movers refuse to disclose information about their location, insurance, or license, then it would be best to consider a different company for your move.

One of the best ways to ensure that you will choose a trustworthy company is to find out if other customers have been satisfied with their services.
