Hourly rate or Fixed price, that is the question

The first is whether you need an hourly rate or fixed price. Now if you
are asking yourself what those two things are, don’t worry. A lot of
people fall into traps when moving because they don’t know the
difference. If you book your move with an hourly rate, that means the
removalists are being paid for the total amount of hours they work on
your move. This can include driving to and from your locations, being
held up in traffic, or in more recent time, border checkpoints. Whereas
a fixed price means that the price for the move is set before the move
begins. Be careful being sold an hourly rate that is well below the
fixed price quote. Many cowboy removalists will under quote to get the
job, then continue to charge you. This often ends up being more than the
original fixed price. It is really important to think about the big
picture and if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Always read the fine print and make sure you understand everything you
are signing up for.

The second consideration is deciding whether to book your move with a
large or small company. The service provided by different companies will
vary depending on many factors, including the size of the company, the
value of the items to be moved, the client removalist relationship, and
the availability of staff. You need to decide whether price or level of
service is more important to you.

My biggest tip for selecting the right removalist is to remember that
you get what you pay for. If you are only concerned with the cost and
decide to go with a cheaper company, be prepared to receive a level of
service that might not necessary be to a high standard. When you book
with Moving Made Easy, you can rest assured that the members of my A
