How to Save Money On Your Next Move

Graham Kerr, partner in the Pisapio Kerr Team and part of the Remax “About Town” Brokerage firm in Oakville Ontario just save one of his clients over 75% on a recent move.

Graham Kerr is an active and successful agent specializing in the premier real estate market of Oakville Ontario. Oakville is home to some of the most expensive real estate in all of Canada. Buyers and sellers in this market expect the very best when it comes to having companies handle their moves. Graham Kerr is part of the Moveit.ca affiliate program that helps his clients find the best quality moving companies for a fair price.

How the Service Industry Caters the Ultra-Wealthy

As with a lot of exclusive residential areas, the service industry tends to cater to the ultra-wealthy. And cater they do. Graham had just sold there multimillion dollar home. The new buyers wanted to close on the house in less than 30 days which meant there was not enough time to find his clients a new home and get them moved in prior to closing. They were going to need to move ASAP and also require storage.

They called the movers that their neighbours had recommended. A typical thing to do; however when they received the quote for moving and a month of storage…they were shocked. As I mentioned earlier, these service companies that cater to these markets can really get “stars in their eyes” when it comes to pricing for wealthy clients.

Price Differences Between Moveit.ca and the Competitors

Graham’s clients thought the price was a little high; so they asked Graham if they knew of any other movers. He immediately directed them to Moveit.ca. They used the quick quote form on moveit.ca web site and received 5 estimates form some great movers in Oakville. The price from the “neighbours” mover, to move there house and 1 month storage was over $15,000. After using Moveit.ca, they received several quotes and ended up hiring a local Oakville mover for $5,000 including storage.

That’s a savings of 75% from the first quote they received. Wow, where they shocked to find out how much this first mover was going to gouge them. They hired the mover who did an excellent job, bought a new house from the Pisapio/ Kerr team (www.team.com ) and hired the same movers to move their stuff from storage to their new house.

Moveit.ca just saved Graham’s clients $10,000 dollars. They could not be happier with their Realtor and with Moveit.ca.

Compare Competitors Before Taking A Decision

We hear stories like this all the time. The vast majority of consumers move so little that they don’t realize how much markup is in a move. Movers can play on emotions and the stress of moving. People often just trust what their neighbours did and figure they did the research already so the price must be good. Of course there is a lot more to moving than just price. This is also where Moveit.ca helps. We screen movers prior to allowing them on our site. We also provide support before, during and after the move as an independent third party to remedy any situations that might arise.

You wouldn’t book a flight, hotel or vacation without researching information and prices online…it’s the same way for moving and as the above example shows, there can be some pretty big differences in moving costs.

So spread the word, tell your friends. Don’t hire a mover if you haven’t received an estimate through www.moveit.ca

Moving Tip

  • Get rid of the junk! Get rid of anything you don’t need or want, it will make packing that much easier and save you money.The more stuff you have will increase the time and or weight of the move and will cost you more money!
