Understanding moving estimates
Once you get moving quotes from different companies, invite them for a local in-house estimate. It is very important to disclose information about everything that you will move so that you can get an accurate estimate.
The type of move you are going to make will inform your final estimate. For local or short distance moves, you are charged by the hour. Other factors included in your estimate are the number of crew and the size of vehicle you will use. For long distance moves, your will most likely be charged by the weight of your items, the total distance to be covered and any additional services required for the move.
There are three common types of estimates as below:
- Non-binding estimate. They are based on the real weight of your property. This type of estimate does not make it compulsory for your mover to stick to the originally estimated price. A non-binding estimate allows you mover to adjust the price either upwards or downwards. If the total moving cost will have to be revised upwards, check with your mover to ensure the increment is not more than 10% of the original cost. The mover should allow you to pay the new bill within 30 days. Many professional movers will however not give you a non-binding estimate.
- Binding estimate. This type of estimate allows you to plan and budget for your move because your mover is not allowed to change the price. You pay what has been estimated irrespective of whether your items weighed less or more. However, a mover can charge you more for any accessorial service that may not have been factored in the quote.
- Binding not to exceed estimate. This is the most consumer-friendly estimate as it has a price guarantee. This estimate allows the price to be adjusted downwards if your total moving cost is lower than had originally been calculated. If the cost of the move is higher, you don’t pay extra. This is the most preferred estimate for long distance moves.
The estimate you receive should then be attached to the bill of lading contract.
