Is there something important that people should know about getting an estimate from a moving company?

When inquiring about an estimate from a moving company make sure to ask what their pricing includes as it relates to moving supplies, fuel charges, and travel time to the initial move location.

How do you calculate an estimate and what the cost to move a household will be?

Estimates are typically calculated based on the amount of time the total move will take as most moving companies charge by the hour.

Are there any extra charges could possibly raise or lower an estimate?

Charges that could raise or lower an estimate would include the moving of specialty items such as pianos and safes, or art work and other expensive pieces.

After people receive an estimate, what questions should they ask the moving company to make sure that everything is included?

For a customer to ensure that everything on the estimate is inclusive, they should have a representative from the company sign off on the moving quote therefore providing finality. On the other hand the customer should be confident that they are providing all their wants and needs in regards to the moving service, if later the customer should decide they would like additional services or moving supplies, this will increase the total cost of the move.

What advice do you have for a homeowner who has a limited budget but doesn't necessarily want to go with the company who provided the lowest estimate?

In the circumstance that a customer has a limited budget, they should provide the moving company with an exact list of items to be moved as well as the addresses involved in the move, and exactly what their expectations are as far as and disassembly and assembly any furniture to be moved. Flat rates for moving services can be obtained in these situations and the customer should inform the moving company up front that this is the customer's goal. A good moving company will ask these questions to ensure that the customer knows exactly what to expect for the price that is given.
