Moving Hourly vs Binding Moving Quotes

Working for a company for over 14 years and having had to move also I am always asked the same question, “should we choose a hourly or flat rate binding quote”?

The answer is not that simple and there are arguments on both sides. The client/companies that like the work by the hour tend to think that the movers will work more careful and not rush thus being more careful with the furniture and preventing any damage while catering to the clients needs at a slower pace. The clients/ companies that like flat rate binding quotes tend to think that working for a fixed price is better because there are no surprises when it comes to the price and you will know exactly what you will pay in advance is a great thing especially if you are working on a budget. The fact that there is a higher then normal traffic or its raining will not affect your move price is a comforting factor. The movers also like it since they don’t feel that the client is always worried about then taking brakes and other such things .

The fact is that whether you feel comfortable with an hourly rate of binding price its always better to ask for an onsite estimate since us as the clients don’t have that much experience estimating or listing items. Do your research online and choose a mover with a great online reputation, if something goes wrong these are the movers that will be more responsive since they care about not receiving negative reviews.

    I had a truly 5 star experience – they were on time, gave me a call an hour before arriving, packed everything neatly and efficiently and placed all items in my new place perfectly. Did the job as promised!

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!
