Though, most  importantly, it will show you that our moving services in Qatar are the most  affordable and of high-quality. This is also where you start to  negotiate with moving experts… 

To stand on equal ground with  relocation professionals you will need to know what you need from them

Make  a list of everything you will need from your relocation company before you  start to negotiate with moving experts.

Every moving company in Qatar has  their own way of calculating a relocation estimate. Some are more affordable  and some are less. Generally, the volume of your belongings, the distance they  need to cross and access to your home will influence the price. Of course, some  other things, too. But, we will get to those a bit later. Now, we want to tell  you about the most common moving packages. This  knowledge will help you negotiate with moving experts like a professional.

 In general, expats opt for:

  • I need you to only move my house. This  means that the workers will load the moving truck, drive it to its destination  and unload there. If you have any fragile items be sure to point out those  boxes and clearly mark them. The downside of this moving plan is that you will  be doing all the packing yourself. So, here’s our tip – get quality relocation  supplies. We suggest either purchasing them with your movers or a reliable  source.
  • I want you to pack the most difficult  belongings in my home. If you’ve got a piano, pool table or a heavy wardrobe,  this is the option you want. When you negotiate with moving  experts, partial packing and unpacking services will be a secret weapon.  Most people believe that you can either book this service as a whole or not at all. However, there is the option of only getting your most troublesome items  prepared by our network of movers.
  • I don't want to experience the hassle  of the move, please do everything for me. This is the most expensive moving  package, but also the most convenient one. The only thing you will need to do  is decide what you want in your new home. The movers will do all the rest.

Keep in mind all the things that  influence your end quote when you negotiate with moving experts

Packing and unpacking services can save you quite a bit of time.

We promised that we would tell you more  about what influences a moving quote. And, here is that information. If you want to negotiate with moving experts on equal ground, it’s  essential that you know how. Learning about the parameters which  influence a relocation estimate is an essential part of that. Then, you will  have the perfect secret weapon to keep in mind as you’re bartering for the best  price.

When you want to negotiate with moving  experts know that:  

  • Distance will affect the quote.  Interstate moves will definitely be more expensive than local ones. Even with  good movers, you won’t be able to negotiate a low price.
  • The belongings which you’re relocating  are another criterion that influences relocation estimates. The representative  of the moving Relocation company will definitely ask you what you’re planning to relocate  and how delicate it is.
  • Moving package choice also important  to the end price of your relocation. If you’re hiring your movers for packing  and unpacking services it will be more expensive than just employing them for transport.
  • Fragile items or fine arts which  you’re relocating can be a factor, too. When it comes to artwork, mirrors or  any kind of breakables you will want them to be safe. Hence, pointing them out to your movers’ representative can get you a reliable estimate on special  relocation services.
  • Difficult access to your home will  influence the quote. When you negotiate with moving experts  expect them to take a look at the entrance to your home. If  you have any elevators, stairs or narrow hallways, they will bring the price up.
  • Time and date of your move are another  factor. It’s more expensive to relocate on holidays, during summer and spring  and the weekends. So, keep that in mind when scheduling your relocation.

Finally, it’s time to remember a few  negotiating techniques which will work with every Qatar moving company

When does the bartering start?  Usually, it begins during an on-site estimate and ends when you have a binding  quote on paper at the end of the day. So, when you schedule an in-house quote  be sure to have all your ducks in a row. You should know which services you  want, which items you’re relocating and how and when the moving day will occur. When the representative comes to your home,  you will be able to negotiate with moving experts in person. Tell them about the other estimates you’ve  received and ask them to match or lower the price. In the end, don’t forget,  quality is more important than affordability!
