Whats a binding quote? Or a binding moving estimate?

A binding quote is the contract which licensed moving companies use to make a formal agreement to fulfill your move. The way these quotes work is that we say based on this amount of stuff, we can all agree that the bill is this amount per unit. Movers charge either by the foot or by the pound for any cross country move, and sometimes also for local moves. Shorter distance local moves are typically billed by the hour. The binding part of this estimate is that the license requires the movers to honor the rate they agree to on the day of the move. This is one of the big advantages of using a licensed moving company as opposed to a broker agency. Unfortunately brokers are notorious for bait and switch tactics and holding peoples items hostage. Licensed moving carriers such as the companies we partner with will honor their rates on move day. Check out Understanding moving quotes

I have a relocation package, can you work with my HR Department?

First of all congratulations on having such an amazing job that they are taking care of you like this! We handle thousands of moves every month, and its rare for a compnay to offer a relocation package which will cover the cost of hiring a moving company for your cross country move. That being said, we work with HR Departments all the time and are happy to accomodate. In our experience what most HR Departments require in order to pay for your relocation is to have 3 or 4 binding estimates. Nine times out of ten your company will want to pay for the lowest priced quote you submit. Keep in mind that once they approve a price they will not want to pay more so it's really important to get an accurate quote which leaves some buffer in case there are any last minute additions.

Do you reccomend we get moving insurance?
