“The other company only charges $85 per hour for 2 men.”
“The mover on Craigslist is only $79 an hour, why are your prices so much higher?”
These are common questions and statements we hear when giving a price for moving service in Fort Worth. Sometimes I’m not sure how to answer those folks, since they may already have it set in their minds that they want a cheap Fort Worth mover or a cheap Dallas mover.
You get what you pay for! This statement usually rings true for high quality vs. low quality. Of course there are exceptions to every rule but with professional movers, do you really want to risk hiring a “cheap movers” that may not be licensed and insured? I don’t know about you, dear reader, but I like my stuff. I like my stuff to stay in one piece, undamaged. They say you can’t take your stuff with you (in the end), but when you are moving, you are indeed, taking your stuff with you! Why would you choose a random Craigslist moving company with no license or insurance? When a moving company advertises itself as a cheap moving company, well, you’ll get cheap!
My husband has worked in the moving business for more than 25 years. He started out by working for moving companies in New York, then opened his own company in New Jersey. When his partner in New Jersey decided that ripping people off was a great way to make more money, my husband left that company. Sure, a moving company can charge whatever they want. They can raise prices, charge for a “long carry”, packing materials, shuttle services and much more. When you use a reputable, licensed moving company with integrity, any and all charges will be included in your not-to-exceed moving quote.
