Everything you need to know about moving quotes NYC

If you haven’t moved before, you’re probably finding that there are a lot of things specific to the moving industry that you don’t understand, don’t know much about or maybe haven’t even heard of before. There are loads of expressions that are part of the dictionary of the moving industry. It is only natural that this wide variety of specific expressions came to be. As a nation, we move a lot, and that is especially true in big cities such as NYC. Bill of lading, 110% rule, various associations (such as the Better Business Bureau for example)… all of it might seem confusing. Luckily, most of it is not that important, or it will be explained by the movers when the time comes. However, when it comes to the estimation of the price of a move, we take it very seriously.

A moving estimate is an approximation of what your relocation is going to cost

This may seem logical, but let us start with the basics: moving quotes NYC, also known as moving estimates, are what the movers you are contacting expect your relocation with them to cost. You should always get several different ones to compare prices. This is especially important when you’re moving long-distance, as that kind of relocation costs more so you will need to be careful with your budget.

What are the factors that go into our moving estimate NYC?  The main factors are the time needed to deal with the move, the weight of your items, and the distance of your move. However, the influence of these factors on the final cost will depend based on whether the move is under 4 hours (local) or more (long-distance). If it is local, the time needed is more important, while fuel consumption on longer distance relocations gives more importance to the other two factors. Of course, this is a simplification, but it works to show you the basics of what goes into a moving quote.

There are different types of moving estimates

Whether you are moving your home or your office, a moving estimate is essential for the process. But it’s worth noting that not all moving estimates are exactly alike. There are three main types:

  • non-binding: an approximation of what you can expect but not a guarantee; the actual cost of moving can be higher or lower depending on a number of factors including the size, weight, and difficulty of the move. However, this cost cannot be more than 110% of the estimate.
  • binding: the exact amount that the move will cost, regardless of whether it ends up heavier or lighter, more or less difficult
  • binding not-to-exceed: the maximum amount the move can cost, though the price can go down if the weight of the load is lighter than expected. You can see that the other two estimates have their own limit set by the industry-enforced 110% rule, but this one is very strict. That is the upper limit and your costs cannot go any higher.

Moving quotes NYC are necessary and helpful for the moving process

Always get a moving estimate early on in the moving process! Not only is it one thing off your to-do list, but it will also help you plan your moving budget. So don’t hesitate to ask for a moving quote as soon as possible.

I was in charge of moving out a bank and in this process I came by a few moving companies . Spoke to all of them and got quotes from all and the most reasonable and fair seemed to be movers101 plus I really liked the customer care so I booked my move with them. I was really skeptical at first because this was a big and complicated move , and required high level of origination and moving skills but The day of the move they came fully equipped , on time and finished a huge job faster than I thought . They were supposed to finish the move in 3 days but finished it in 2 . Definitely recommend them and will be booking them for any future moves !
