Asking for a quote is the right thing to do before making a selection of a moving company to handle an office relocation move. Getting a quote is a fairly simple process. The quote request form is filled out and submitted. Once it is received and reviewed, a free estimate will be sent via email. The process is not all that tough so it should not be difficult.
The problem here is errors and mistakes can be made when filling out and even reviewing the quote form. To help ensure the right rate is quoted on the relocation assistance service, here are a few basic tips to follow.
Online forms can make the process a lot easier. However, do not allow the ease of filling out the form become an excuse for being lax. Take the same attitude with an online form as you would with a hardcopy paper one.
Do not rush through the process of filling out the quote form. While some might want to hurry up and fill the request form out quickly to get the process moving, this can be a mistake. Errors, oversights, and omissions are common among those who rush to complete the form. Take your time and fill the form out carefully before hitting the submit button.
Reread the entries you have typed in the form. Execute a careful proofreading. No matter how deliberate you may have been the first time around, no one is perfect. You may have made a mistake. Sometimes, mistakes lead to getting the wrong estimate or simply receiving a request for clarification. Proofreading can eliminate a number of problems along these lines.
Be aware that even though you may write or submit a questionnaire any time of the day or evening, the request for an estimate is going to be reviewed on a business day. Sometimes, the turnaround may be 24 hours. 48 is possible. Anything longer than that might necessitate sending an email to the office relocation moving company. Just do not be unreasonable in terms of the time frame you request a response.
Once you do receive an estimate, do not give it a mere cursory skimming. You can do this for a quick once over when you read it the first time, but you definitely do want to read it thoroughly. This will be the only way to get the clearest and best understanding of what it says. Skimming just is not going to be enough because you may end up missing important points and details.
If there is anything in the quote you do not understand, send an email or call for clarification. The customer service reps with the service are surely going to want to help you out. You might even be able to try and negotiate on the price. Who knows? If your request is reasonable, it may be accommodated easily and quickly.
