What to Expect in Professional Moving Quotes

Items to Look for in Professional Moving Quotes in Brighton, CO & Colorado Springs, CO

If you are planning to move your home or office, you might be overwhelmed by all the different moving companies you are looking to schedule an estimate with. The good news is that you do want to look at multiple moving and storage services. The challenge is to know what to look for and what to expect in professional moving quotes. The professional movers at Great Plains Moving and Storage in Brighton, CO and Colorado Springs, CO have put together the following list of items to look for.

  • Billable Time - Moving quotes charge services on billable time. Short distances, such as a local move might not have a binding estimate but moving quotes for long-distance moves and more are often binding because of the large number of people, equipment, trucks, and hours dedicated and reserved for that move. Long distance moving quotes are also largely priced on the weight of your belongings.
  • Equipment & Material Cost - A moving quote depends on several factors. You are not measuring only how far the move is, but the number of belongings in your home, garage, shed, or office all weigh into the price by the amount, what equipment or trucks are necessary to move everything, and what material costs will be.
  • Full-Service or Partial Services - Moving quotes and moving and storage services can offer full-service or partial-service movers depending if you would like professional movers to pack your belongings instead of only moving them. Moving coordinators and designers can help with floorplans and arranging your furniture at the new location as well. All these services are a part of the moving quote.
  • Damage Protection - Protection for lost and damaged items are usually added to your estimate upfront. This is important to protect valuable items in your home but remember to ask during your estimate how much the extra protection will cost. Movers are only held accountable for damaged items if they are the ones who packed them. Remember this if you decided to pack on your own.

A move has many moving parts. When planning what moving and storage services are the best for you, ask many questions during an estimate and include all information vital to the move to make sure your quote is accurate. Pick the moving company that best suits your needs.
