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.
