Shifting Home? Here's how to not get Overcharged by Packers and Movers

Are you planning to shift your home and ready to sign a contract with a packers and movers service provider that you shortlisted? Are you really happy about everything and sure that you won't be overcharged by your mover?

I am not trying to scare you but the fact of the matter is there are shady and mediocre movers and packers companies who may add different hidden charges and overcharge you during the course of move; even after signing the contract and agreeing on a price.

So how do they do this?

Low Rates to Grab Your Order

Obviously, when you hire movers for shifting and relocation, you talk to several companies to check rates, charges and their credentials. Out of all those movers that you interacted with you end up choosing a mover who offers you lowest rate and that's the catch.

Obviously all movers and packers companies does not use this trick, but there are a number of them who would quote you much lesser than the feasible price. Why would they do so, you may ask? Because they just want to ensure that you select them and once you agree, they will start quoting rates for additional services, taxes, charges for this and that.

So the point is to not get fooled by hard to believe discounted rates while hiring a movers and packers. Be practical and evaluate offer carefully and choose a mover who looks impressive and practical, not one who offers lowest rates which is hard to believe.

Hidden Charges may appear on the day of actual packing

Before you sign any contract, ask your mover to survey your goods, look at each and every single item and ask them to give you the final quote for complete shifting and relocation services. Just make sure that there are no hidden costs, not even for toll tax or anything like that.

A shady relocation company may offer you lowest price and once you sign the contract and assign him the job of packing and shifting, he will start negotiation after packing your stuff. They will come up with hundreds of excuses like it too lots of effort in opening the bed, or packing that thing or loading and so on.

They may start adding charges for lunch and labor costs to unload goods from 3rd floor and so on and they can give you an excuse that they had to park the truck far away and so they are charging you for labor costs.

But you know what; these things need to be clarified earlier. Whatever you do, just make sure that there are no hidden costs and you don't have to pay anything more than mentioned in their final quotation.

Over to you

There are so many awesome packers and movers companies who have built their business over a period of time with lots of efforts and great customer support and services. But real challenge is to not get imitated by lucrative by hard to believe offers and end up hiring a shady packers and movers companies for your shifting.
