In moving as well as in life, we are always presented with options. What makes all the difference is when you decide to make a choice. When you choose to say yes.
Here’s where we’ll give you an important tip when it comes to getting quotes for moving services, don’t book on the first call.
All too often, a lot of people grab opportunities the second that they arrive. This happens normally with job offers and even romantic suitors too. The same goes when you’re searching for a moving company. Some people book the first company that calls them.
Now, why is this bad?
There’s nothing wrong with booking a company on their first sales call IF you get lucky. However, chances are higher that the first company may not offer you the best price or the best package.
You have to remember that when looking for service providers you need options, options, options.
The more options you have, the more power you have on your hands.
If you book the first moving company that calls you, you’re already closing your door to other companies who want to present you with what they can offer. Instead of being able to compare their pricing and package inclusions, you lose that chance because you were either too eager to start your move or too lazy to look at other quotes.
Why You Need to See Other Quotes
Obviously, you get the power to compare if you see the options in front of you. Here’s another tip, if you have several quotes presented to you, you can use them to your advantage by letting each company know about their competitors’ offers. You can leverage this opportunity to ask for a better offer, or get discounts. If you’re lucky, some companies will budge and try to swoon you over with a better deal.
This technique is also good if you don’t understand a detail in one of the quotes. You can approach the other company and ask them about it. If they know that they have a competitor with a similar quote, they will try to explain it better to you and offer you a better deal.
The key here is to have presence of mind, and a control over your emotions. Sales people can be very persuasive but you have to stand your ground. Don’t say yes to the first person who talks to you.
