I was contacted by Just in Time Moving Company (I have no idea where they got my phone number....they claimed not to know either!) for a free estimate for moving costs. Upon arrival, their representative had me name each individual item to be moved. They were not moving anything except individual pieces of furniture, and they would have had no packing or transporting of boxes to do. All that would have been done prior to their arrival. I received in the mail later that week an estimate for $1641.62. Each item to be moved was individually listed with the cost to move said item next to it. I have two identical book shelves in my house; one in the living room and one in my daughter's room. The quoted price to move the one in the living room was $20.00 and the quoted price to move the one in my daughter's room was $8.00!

Another company came today to give me an estimate. Their quoted price (for the exact same services) was between $675.00 and $825.00 depending on how many hours the move took. This is almost a thousand dollar difference to do the exact same job.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Don't shop by price alone

AUTHOR: Sharon - (U.S.A.)

Joanne, whenever one quote is a HUGE amount lower than another you have, it's the lower one that should be suspect, not the higher one. It's called a "lowball quote", it is offered only to get your business, but they rarely stay that low amount.

I don't know why there was a price difference between two identical bookshelves, but the estimator can adjust it to match if you bring it to his attention.

But that being said, Just In Time Moving & Storage has a bad BBB rating for unanswered complaints. Think carefully about who you really want to move your entire life's belongings. If you are using find-a-mover websites, your phoen nuber is being passed around to all sorts of unsavory charachters, and this is probably how JIT got your number in the first place.
