Calculating Moving Costs: Factors to Consider

Moving to a new city or state is an exhilarating adventure. It offers great opportunities to start something new somewhere else. As wonderful as this new chapter is, it’s important to keep in mind the costs involved with your big move.

Different factors influence your overall moving costs. These include the following:

  • The weight of your household belongings. A rule of thumb with moving is: the more items you’re bringing to the new house, the more your moving expenses will be. It is based on the weight of the all household goods you are transporting. The transparent verifiable weight will explain the higher price tag behind large-sized moves.
  • Additional storage. If your move needs more time before delivery or is part of more complicated situation, you might end up needing storage services from your moving company. Professional movers can store or hold all of your belongings before, during, or after a move. Storage rates vary and are based on the time and labor to move in and out of the storage unit.
  • Seasonality. When are you moving? Relocating during a weekend or a busy season will cost you more compared to doing it on a weekday or off-season.
