LA to Boston quote #4
When all is said and done, we're looking at a difference of 300-400 bucks. Which in some ways isn't a lot of money, but in others, well, it is.
What do you ya'll think? This site has been so incredibly helpful.
ps And maybe all of us August Boston movers should get together, have a beer, swap stories, and enjoy the summer's end humidity!

\the Mayflower guy seemed much more thorough. (they even had the newly minted R&R book!)
YAAY! I am glad to hear that! Well done Mayflower!
64% discount is not unrealistic at all; it is just that since this is the heavy moving season, the laws of supply and demand kick in, in favor of the moving companies.
If I were to put on the ol' red & blue University cap I would postulate that The Summertime Moving Consumer Market Exhibits High Price Inelasticity of Demand... LOL

A 64% discount does seem high being that the end of July is expected to be shut off for new bookings beginning in a couple weeks. Most van lines are filled to capacity all summer long, so the increased peak rates should be normal this summer. The rest of the year (Fall, Winter, Spring) a 64% discount is very normal, sometimes even a little higher coming out of CA!
Good luck and let us know how it all plays out!
