SPECIAL TOPIC – FLAT RATE & OTHER ESTIMATING METHODS

Myths About Pricing

Movers can offer different types of estimates, binding, non-binding, and not-to-exceed.

You will be hearing all of the many terms mentioned above when it comes to pricing and it can sometimes get quite confusing.

More and more you will hear the term “flat rate pricing”.  Currently it has become a very appealing concept and much the “buzz” in the moving business.  But…

… Is this rate really flat or are there hidden EXTRA charges. What people have found is that either they or the moving company did not include ALL of the items when the estimate was originally created and that more items have been discovered and hence the “flat” rate has to be increased to cover those items that were “left out.

 So, this is all confusing, right?

 When you really think about it, if you accurately identify ALL of the items that you intend to move and they are accurately and honestly priced by your moving company, then it IS, effectively at “flat rate.”

Let me know your opinion and experiences.
