The perils of cheap moving quotes
Everyone wants to move their stuff at an affordable rate – who wants to pay more and get less? But like with anything you get what you pay for. If you want cheap moving quotes and services, you have to know what cheap prices are good, and which ones are bad.
This is why we always recommend gathering multiple quotes to ship your household goods (or your vehicle). Being able to compare and contrast prices and find the right shipping company for your budget is important. Going with the first company you find may work out fine, but more often than not you either end up paying too much or leaving services on the table – or both, if it’s drastic enough.
What cheap moving companies can do for you
Like any moving company, cheap moving companies can help you get your household items moved at a great price. But cheap moving companies can come with issues that other, higher-priced movers don’t.
Don’t forget that household goods transportation is an industry just like any other. Companies want to help, but they also need to make money. So most times, household goods moving prices are based on basic supply and demand as well as popularity of routes and availability of services.
Cheap household movers can be tricky because some of them, especially lower-quality ones, will try to cut corners to save you money. This can manifest in the form of shoddy packing, haphazard loading or unloading of your goods, not properly securing your goods in the truck, poor driving of the truck, and more.
Companies that cut those kinds of corners normally don’t last long. But it’s important to keep in mind that some do this, which is why it’s vital that you look at reviews of your potential moving companies, cheap or not.
How reviews can help you find a quality cheap moving company
Reviews are a wonderful tool that we cannot recommend enough. We tell our customers to look at our own reviews as well as reviews of any of our competitors that they are thinking of booking with. Honesty is a great quality, especially in a company that you are trusting thousands of dollars of your possessions to.
Companies that cut corners to keep costs low tend to have a smattering of both good and bad reviews. Almost every company – even the best in the business – will eventually end up with a bad review. But bad reviews should be few and far between, and should mostly come from customers who just will never be satisfied by anything.
Good companies will show this. Bad companies, or companies that don’t take your goods seriously, will have a healthy mix of good and bad.
Naturally, companies with lots of bad reviews should be avoided. Companies with nothing but good reviews are great, but some may be too good to be true. So keep that in mind as well.
Ultimately, you should get multiple quotes to ship your goods, compare those companies by looking at and reading reviews of them, and then finding the one that’s right for you.
