I think that the general consensus is that everybody likes to save money. Money is used to purchase things, and if you spend too much of it on an individual object, then you don’t have enough to go around. However, there is such a thing unfortunately in the moving industry, as well as every other industry for that matter, as too low of a quote. I know, it may seem a little bit hard to grasp, but if someone gives you a quote that is ridiculously low especially for the distance that you will need to be traveling, then it might be a scam and you should take heed of that feeling.
Moving estimates are something that are usually pretty rock-solid because they have to take into account the distance they need to travel, the gaskets going to be used, and the time that is going to be spent by the people who are helping you move. It’s really pretty easy to figure out exactly how much money you are going to be spending to help an individual customer move. However, some fake businesses can be set up and set themselves at ridiculously low prices that would put them in the red simply to get a hold of your stuff. Now, don’t get me wrong. Sales do happen and prices fluctuate. Sometimes you’ll find a really good price for moving that seems to be almost borderline in the red. Businesses can do this to try to generate business and it’s not exactly a rare occurrence. However, if you see something that is blatantly too low for what you think standard price would be for even the fuel to get you to your next home, look elsewhere. They will probably try anything to get your attention but you just need to walk away.
Unfortunately scams are everywhere. There seems to be an innate desire within some people to try to steal as much as they can from other individuals without getting caught. Maybe it’s a thrill issue, or maybe it’s something to do with something that happened in their childhood. I’m not going to get off Freudian on you here, but there is something wrong with the individuals who create these sorts of programs. Sometimes it’s possible to tell if these people are who they say they are when you meet them in person. A simple tech, or a slip of the tongue could give enough away to put you on edge. If you really don’t feel confident that accompanies there to help you, don’t hire them simple as that. It’s much better to be safe than sorry.
If there is one thing I have learned over the years, it’s that people who don’t shop around 10 to get ripped off. Granted, every company wants your business because that’s how they stay afloat, but you as a consumer need to be intelligent about how you decide which company to go with. Let’s take Exodus for example. It’s not likely that you’re going to find many full-service moving companies around in Fort Collins, but it is true that there are a few around the Denver area who could help you.
You would not be an intelligent consumer if you did not look around and find out which one had the best deals and which one had the best reviews. After all, the Internet has given us the ability to discuss our experiences with the world. Anyone who wants to listen, has the ability to read about almost any company. This means that as consumers we have never had more power over which company we choose to take, and anyone who does not exercise that power is seriously limiting themselves. Moving estimates for different areas can fluctuate wildly depending on the difficulty of moving into the home, and the drive there.
There are extenuating circumstances however where you want one company, but they don’t offer the best price. Something you can do about that is go and get the best moving company quote that you can, and then take it to the company that you want and see if they will honor that price as well. Or, if nothing else that they will bring their price closer to what you have in mind. Price matching in the moving company business is not an exact science, but it is something that some companies will do.
So don’t be afraid to ask if you can get your price lowered a little bit if you have an example of it being considerably lower on another company’s website. It’s little things like this that make people a smart consumer. Don’t let yourself be one of the people who gets ripped off, follow along with these very simple steps and don’t be afraid to speak your mind. People respect a person who speaks their mind about whatever they are thinking, so long as it’s not crazy hurtful.
If there’s one thing that you want to compare with other companies, it’s moving estimates. Moving can be one of the most expensive endeavors that you can encounter in your life, especially if this move takes you across the country. It’s highly recommended that instead of going with the first company that you come across, whether that is us or not, that you look around and see what other people have to offer. You can always ask if the company that you desire to have move you can price match with another company has offered. It’s not always going to work, but it’s always worth a shot. Not every moving company is going to have the ability to price match especially if they’re located in different places around the globe. If you need to move let’s say from New York to Los Angeles, it’s going to cost considerably more if you hire a company that’s located in Ohio for example. Not that you would really want to do that, but still.
Getting a free quote is something that you should definitely take into consideration as well. Some people don’t offer their quotes for free and we think this is a severely outdated method. They should not cost you money to figure out if you want to spend money with a certain company. Get our free quote, and then go compare us with other companies that you come across. Not only is this the wise business decision, but it allows you to get a better idea of what your expenditures are going to be. You will always go with the cheaper option, that’s just the way things are. However, before you decide that the cheapest option you’ve been able to find out there is the company you want, to make sure that they offer the services that you want as well.
Services are an extraordinarily important part of moving. If you hire a company who is cheap, but doesn’t offer the services that you’re going to need, than what was the point of the whole endeavor? Instead, do as we discussed above and see if the company that you know has all the services you want will price match what you found. You’ll keep it cheap as well as getting everything that you desired.
A moving company is generally defined as two guys and a truck who move your things to a new home. Now, you may feel like this isn’t the most complex of definitions, but it doesn’t have to be. Two guys who come to your home, help you move your things out, and help you drive them or get them ships to your new place is a great definition. After all, where would we be without it? A lot of people don’t know people who have trucks, which means that if they ever have to move they are up a creek without a paddle.
Moving companies like this one that provide you with 2 guys and a truck are exactly what these types of people need. So you can say that we are necessarily the end all be all of moving, but rather you could say we are a company whose willingness to help you move is of great benefit. And to think all of this is accomplished with two guys and a truck. It’s a rather astounding notion to be honest.
We can’t tell you how many times we’ve been thanked for the amount of help we’ve been in a person’s moving process. Helping them get their belongings into the correct rooms whether they’re heavy or not is only part of the things we do. The driving, the shipping, and anything else that needs to be done as far as moving belongings is concerned gives us a sense of fulfillment that we are unlikely to find anywhere else.
The only other place where we find this type of fulfillment is at your fully furnished home when you thank us for a job well done. So what do you say? Do you believe now that two guys and a truck can be one of the most beneficial things to your moving process? You should, because otherwise this blog has not done its job. If you haven’t hired us however, give us your consideration and you will find out exactly how effective we can be with just this small method.
