A Quick Guide to Moving Quotes

Ever thought about how moving firms determine the overall cost of your move? They calculate your moving prices depending on several factors, including but not limited to:

  • The Number of Belongings – Your move will be more costly if you have much stuff to transport. It will take longer to unload and load these items.
  • Labor Costs – You’ll typically be paying moving professionals by the hour for local moves. When it comes to interstate or long-distance moves, however, companies usually include the estimated labor cost in the moving quote.
  • Packing Costs – If you want movers to pack and unpack your belongings for you, be ready to shell out extra cash for this service.
  • The Mileage between the Origin and Destination – The distance between point A and point B affects the overall cost of the move. Generally, the cost is higher when the distance between the destination and origin is longer. This is because you’ll need to pay for gas, as well as for the driver who will be transporting your belongings.
