Moving house has many different complexities that can make the whole thing incredibly difficult if you are not careful. In many instances, there are things that can go wrong from a very early point, and you will no doubt understand that avoiding these things is the name of the game. One of the most difficult things to do is to ensure that everything is accounted for early on, and in your haste to do so, you may cut corners without realizing it. Many people find themselves falling victim to the trappings of the internet and the ease that it offers. There is something comforting in not having to move from your office desk, and getting everything that you need form your computer screen, but sometimes it is a bit of a false lead, as many find out when they use price comparison websites.
Price comparison sites are designed to compare the offers and deal put about by different services to ensure that people are aware that they are giving the best deals. However, when it comes to Houston Moving companies, you will often find that such things are not as simple. With an insurance quote, you may be able to put in a few answers and get a quote, however, with a moving survey, a quote relies on so many things that an online quote just won’t be realistic! You need to ensure that you are in a position where there is nothing hidden or up in the air, and this is exactly what you are getting yourself in for if you go with an online quote from the start. The Houston movers that are being fed by the price comparison sites will be charged a fee every time the company gets a lead, and this means that it is in their interest to give low quotes. They make up for this by changing the quote later on, blaming it on something that you may not have thought of – these scams can be very clever!
It is not to say that all of these moving companies are scammers, but it is rare to get a good quote that is completely realistic and remains that price all the way through. The only way to get an accurate quote is with a house moving survey, which will ensure that everything is going to go to plan for the money you pay. A house moving survey will also ensure that the movers are aware of how your house will work for things aside the sheer quantity – they will see how tough the stairs will be for the staff, and where they can park their large moving trucks. These are the sorts of thing that can make a removal get extremely difficult if you are not careful, as an unseen enemy can throw up a lot of difficulties for a remover if they have not visited a property before the day of the job!
So, avoiding an online quote will mean that you need to get a proper moving survey, and this will ensure that you are not at risk of being charged more when you are in no position to refuse! This can happen, it is called ‘moving the goalposts’. Just before the move, when it is too late to change moving company, the firm asks you for more for whatever reason. This is obviously an extremely difficult position to be in and many will cave to the pressure!
