Long distance moving can get complicated, expensive, involve storage and delivery challenges. Because of the expenses involved, finding a bargain-priced long distance moving offer is something that most people relocating to another state are seeking. This new Alpha Moving and Storage blog post offers some key points that will help you in finding your bargain price.

The Difference Between Bargain Prices and Lowball Estimates

It is highly important to be able to tell the difference between bargain prices and lowball estimates. In order to make sure the estimate you received is genuinely inexpensive, ask your potential mover to provide you with the basic charge unit. In long distance moving, this means the charge per pound or the charge per cubic foot. Also, request that all extra fees – packing materials, elevator and stairs charges, paperwork charges and so on – appear on your written estimate.

Verifying a Moving Company’s Reputation

The second element of telling the difference between an honest bargain price and a lowball estimate has to do with the moving company’s reputation. If a company has dozens of unresolved complaints with the Better Business Bureau it probably means that your “too good to be true” really is too good to be true. Don’t be tempted by amazing prices offered you by shady long distance moving companies.

Selecting your Bargain-Priced Mover

Our recommendation is that you collect about three to five long distance moving estimates from reputable companies. Alpha Moving and Storage recommends that you ask your potential movers to send a relocation consultant to your home, provide you an estimate in writing and thorough explanations regarding extra fees, storage policies, delivery terms, packing and packing materials and so on.
