When you are planning a move in the Broomfield area or in and around Colorado, it can be tempting to just choose one moving company and avoid the time of meeting with several different moving companies.
The problem with this approach is that not all moving companies are the same, and even a company you have used in the past may not be competitively priced or offer the services of other companies that provide moving in this area.
By taking the time to compare information from at least three moving companies, it is possible to get a good understanding of what is available and what price is competitive. It is important, however, to make sure to compare the same types of quotes and to make sure the quoted price includes all the services discussed with the moving company.
Best Estimate Possible
Ideally, look for estimates or quotes for the move that are binding or not-to-exceed binding estimates. The binding estimate gives you the exact price provided the requirements of the move do not change.
It is also possible for moving companies to offer a not-to-exceed binding estimate, which gives you the benefit to pay the lower of the estimated price or the actual price by weight. This is often preferred by consumers as it ensures that the binding estimate is not inflated, or provides a cost reduction if the estimate is over the actual.
Better Understanding of Optional Services
Not all moving companies in Broomfield CO offer all the additional services and features. Some companies can arrange for professional packing and unpacking crews to come to the home in advance of the movers and pack, box or wrap all items in the home.
Other services can include automobile transport if you have more than one vehicle and need assistance, as well as providing storage, assistance with temporary accommodations if needed, and full online tracking 24/7 for interstate or international moves.
There are full service moving companies who can even assist with marketing your home, closing the deal, mortgage assistance and in finding just the right realtor to handle the sale.
By meeting with a representative from moving companies to complete the in-home survey for the estimate, it is also possible to assess the level of professional support and service to expect.
This is very helpful in narrowing down the options in moving companies to get just the professional relocation service to handle your household move.
