Vancouver's Movers Crack the Estimate Code

Vancouver's Movers Release Post Explaining How Local Moves Are Estimated in Order to Fight Unethical Industry Practices

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - September 25, 2015) - For Ferguson Movers, a Vancouver moving and storage company, transparency has always been the best policy. A recent page on their website explains how quotes are typically estimated, and why they've adopted a policy of firm, flat quotes.

As the fall arrives, moving companies will be shifting into their high volume season. It's a busy time for buying and selling homes. In addition, students will be packing up and leaving for university and college. So it's not unusual for moving companies to receive several estimate requests each day. Read more at:

"Those who check with multiple companies are often surprised to learn that the costs can vary quite dramatically from one to the next," says a company representative.

The post explains that some Vancouver movers base their estimate on gas while others use time as a yardstick. Although it doesn't seem like an unfair policy, complications and unforeseen scenarios can arise. Movers can get lost or stuck in rush hour, leaving clients on the hook for a bill that's larger than anticipated.

Ferguson Movers have sidestepped this issue by providing flat rate quotes that are delivered by professional estimators who assess the size and scope of individual jobs. These quotes are based on individual needs and requirements.

"Most people don't know that large trucks cannot cross the Lion's Gate, so we would typically use multiple smaller vehicles to access the bridge, rather than going around. We've been in Vancouver for a long time. We have many locations and franchises, and we've adapted to what our clients want. It's one of the reasons we're still around."
