Beware the quote! When I got the quote for moving a 3-bed rooms, the quote was about $4000. However, when the movers came, they asked me to sign a new contract, indicating the moving expenses depended on a estimate weight of 8500 pounds. I had no idea how to convert the household weights to pounds but I believed the quote I got should reflect approximately weights I might had. The final price was almost $9000, which was more expensive than the original quote. I was threatened to pay the waiting fee or they would put my stuffs to the storage..... The representative of the moving company told me that the final price depended on the actual weight and my stuffs seemed to be "double" than the original estimate. I told her that (1) I had no idea how to convert the household to "pounds" and the moving company should had a much better knowledge to estimate the moving expenses and (2) it was not possible that I "doubled" my stuffs when I decided to move.
