There is a great variety in the quality of Toronto moving companies on the market. With a low barrier to entry and little regulation for its workers, moving companies have come under fire for less than stellar performance. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Performing your due diligence when comparing moving companies and collecting quotes allows you to fill confident in your selection and partner with a Toronto moving company that cares about your needs and guarantees professional and positive experience.
If you research what the market offers, you might get exactly what you need from your Toronto moving service and possibly end up with considerable savings. So, if you are wondering how to compare Toronto moving quotes effectively, there are three essential aspects.
Free vs. Obligation
Some Toronto moving companies will offer you a quote based on the pre-estimated weight (or volume: see #2) of your belongings. In other words: a good company will give you a non-obligation (free) quote for moving services.
And, then there are those which offer binding estimates. This means the price you pay is fixed. However, this type of quote is different than the ‘not-to-exceed’ alternative. So, when you contact a moving company in Toronto, make sure you ask specifically about the type of quote you receive and take notes, so you won’t forget important details.
But all this naturally raises the question: What are quotes based on?
Weight And Volume
Naturally, the more space your belongings occupy (or for other companies, the more they weight), the higher your final price for the move will be. Volume plays a decisive role in your end price. Most Toronto moving companies (including us), charge per hour and per mover.
For too much luggage and furniture, the moving company can send more people and a bigger truck (or two, or three). Sometimes, hiring more people can save a lot of time, so it’s quite relevant to spare a thought about that. In any case, it’s best if you get rid of some things you don’t need anymore before you move.
In most cases of a “straightforward” move, there is no need for you to consider charges for additional moving services. Especially when you don’t have any delicate items that usually require special handling such as artwork or musical instruments.
But, then there are times when you need to move a piano and things get a little bit more complicated, in special instances, you might need to combine with an additional moving service for extra insurance.
So there you have it!
