Moving Tips: Understanding and Learning Your Quote
When you start looking for a moving company, movers usually prepare a quote for you on how much your moving needs cost. The more detailed you are in describing the items that you need to transfer to your new home, the more likely your quote will match the final bill.
You need to list down all the things that you want to bring and the things that need to be transferred by the moving company. Try to estimate if you can't weigh them and put this information on your list, too.
In listing your things, you need to put the detailed description and item in your list. Try to divide your list by items and their approximate weight. Books are heavier than other items and this are very costly to move.
You also need to know that any item that is in irregular in shape or size needs special packing materials. You need to separate these items in a different container and tag it as fragile or breakable.
Always bring your inventory and make some extra copies when you inquire to moving companies. This way, you will be able to receive a more feasible quote from moving companies that you have inquired. Their quotes are one of your criteria in choosing the moving company.
