Of course you want to move from point A to point B with as little cost as possible. That is certainly a reasonable goal; however, you also want to do it safely and with no loss or damage to your household items.
The more rooms you have, the more complicated the moving process becomes. Add to that some particularly valuable items like antique furniture and you begin to see why it is not always advisable to simply hire the first couple of college students with a truck offering to help.
“Cheap moving companies” can become more expensive than they seem once property becomes damaged or even stolen!
Handing Your Precious Belongings Over to the Lowest Bidder Doesn’t Make a Lot of Sense
Some things in life just need to be done right. For instance, you wouldn’t make price the top priority if you needed surgery.
It makes sense to make sure that you reduce the likelihood of suffering a loss for something that is not easy to replace. In many cases the cheapest moving company will also be the one cutting corners when it comes to how carefully they transport your belongings. You may see lots of rough handling in the name of expediency, or due to a simple lack of proper training.
A Cheap Moving Company May Not Be So Cheap After All…
Sometimes claiming extremely low prices may simply be a marketing tactic of a company that is not confident in its ability to attract business through quality and reputation.
The worst case is when a Tucson moving company does not stick close to its quote and actually tries to get as much money as it can after already completing the move. They may do this by charging you for “overtime” after intentionally underestimating how much time the move would take.
It’s a Cliché Because It Is Often True
You get what you pay for.
It may not be true 100% of the time, but it seems to be true 90% of the time when it comes to moving. Even if their quote is honest and the move comes in very cheap, how many dings in your wooden table are you willing to tolerate to save a buck?
The cheapest Tucson movers may not even pay attention to the words “fragile” or “handle with care” no matter how large you write it on the boxes!
