To make sure that there are no surprises at the end of your move you should get a written estimate from the movers. A moving company will send an estimator to your residence or business facility.
You need to set aside approximately 45 minutes for an estimator to take a detailed inventory of your items. The estimator will assess the location for accessibility of the truck and will find out if you require any additional services.
This information is then input into a moving software that does the calculations and figures out the size of your shipment. Based on the size of your shipment, additional services required and materials to be used- the estimator will figure out the amount of labor necessary to complete the local job or figure out the weight of the shipment for long distance jobs, add the cost for materials and additional services and finally come up with a final cost.
The estimator can provide you with a written estimate at the time of the visit, or take this information to do calculations at the office and send you an estimate over fax, email or by mail. The fact that estimator came out to view your shipment and did a physical inspection of your location will make it a legal binding estimate.
Written estimates are binding and movers will not increase the price on you, unless there is a need for unexpected, additional services that come up during the actual relocation the cost will not change. In that case movers will ask you to sign a new "Order for Service Form", which will describe additional services and costs. This form will need to be signed by you/shipper. If you disagree with the additional costs, you are not required to sigh this form, however the movers will not be required to perform additional (unexpected) services.
In case the estimator made a mistake in calculations in your favor (underestimating the size of your shipment) - the cost will not change.
However, if the estimator overestimates shipment's weight or labor hours the cost will be adjusted down (in your favor).
Therefore, the movers are supposed to keep track of the labor hours and materials used on local moves and weigh the shipment to figure out the actual weight of your items. And adjust your price down.
Both California Public Utilities Commission and Department of Transportation advise shippers to receive written on-site estimates. Especially if you are planning a long distance move across country, or relocating a large residence, you should get at least three estimates from reputable moving companies. The companies that don not provide on-site estimates should not be considered, even if they offer lowest prices. Start your research of reputable movers and schedule estimates 3 to 4 weeks before your move day. This way you will have plenty of time to find the right mover and make a reservation in time to make sure they have the availability.
