How to Negotiate a Moving Company Estimate

If you want to negotiate a moving company estimate, there are a few ways that you can do so effectively. Moving can be a lot more expensive than many people realize. Therefore, you need to do whatever you can to make sure that you save as much money as possible on moving costs. Here are a few ways to negotiate a moving company estimate down to a price that you can afford. 

Get Multiple Estimates

If you want to negotiate with a moving company, you are first going to need to get some leverage. When you shop around and get multiple estimates, you will have a much higher likelihood of being able to negotiate. 

Use the Estimates

When you get multiple estimates from moving companies, you need to do your best to negotiate with them. If you have a low estimate from another company, ask the company that you want to work with if they will match or beat the estimate. If they want your business badly enough, they will try to beat it for you.

Be Persistent

No one likes to repeatedly tell someone no. If you ask once, there is a chance that they will tell you no. If you are persistent and keep asking them to lower their price, they are more likely to do so.
