Screening Moving Companies - Part 4
If time is of the essence and you choose to prepare your own inventory list and then send it to various moving companies for a quote, you must do your job well and create an inventory list that will reflect the actual size of your move.
Do not try to drop out items just to make your list seem smaller. This list will have no holding in reality and you will still pay for the amount of items you actually have and need transported.
An accurate inventory list is not only important to determine the cost of your move but to allow your moving company to be well prepared for your move. This means that if you provide your moving company with accurate information, they will be able to do their job assigning the right sized moving truck and crew.
Your inventory list does not have to be a hundred percent accurate. Your moving company knows that and is ready for reasonable margins. It will be wise to be ready for these margins financially too.
As you start receiving price quotes and estimates from the moving companies on your shortlist, don't look only into the price. Be sure to consider all factors when narrowing down the options and choosing a company.
