One of the most important things to a customer is the price in which they pay for a move. It is important to understand what types of estimates you can receive from movers. First and foremost, if your move is under $500 worth of services, movers are not required to give you a written estimate. If the move exedes $500, then a moving company in Columbus is required to give one of the following three types of estimates.
Types of Estimates
- Non-Binding – This is an estimate where the mover may exede the amount in the written estimate. The amount may also be less than the estimate but this is unlikely to happen. We do not recommend this type of estimate if it is possible to avoid. A non-binding estimate is one that is the least detailed. Essentially a non-binding estimate is the most inaccurate type of written estimate. If a moving company offers you a moving estimate that is far below that of the other you may want to ask if the quote is a non-binding estimate.
- Binding – A binding written estimate means that the move has to be for that exact amount. These are usually the most detailed type of estimate you can have. They will normally outline in great detail what tasks the movers are to do.
- Guaranteed-Not-To-Exceed – This type of estimate is exactly what it sounds like. This type of estimate just means that the movers will not be able to exede the amount on the estimate.
Even if you have a move that is below $500, you should try to get an estimate in writing. You can find out more about about what to look for in a moving company by reading some of our other articles.
