How Is the Cost of Your Move Determined?

All movers have the right to set their own rates on moving services. However, there is a system that the majority follows so that they can give their customers the most honest rate. Perhaps the largest factor taken into account before a quote is given is the net weight of all your belongings. To get the net weight, the moving company will weigh the truck being used to haul your belongings. This is called the tare weight. Once your items are loaded onto the truck, the weight of the truck is taken again. This is the gross weight. When the tare weight is subtracted from the gross weight, the net weight is determined.

Aside from the net weight, the mileage is also taken into consideration. The current cost of fuel and the distance between the starting and ending locations also affect the cost. As for a mover’s optional services, their cost is calculated differently. For example, if you decide to purchase full packing services, you are likely to be charged by each box packed by the movers.

Most moving companies will expect your moving services to be paid in full after the delivery is made. However, you may be asked to pay a small initial deposit to book your service date. This only reassures the mover that you’re not going to cancel the move before they get to your home for the loading process. The deposit is then subtracted from your final cost of services after the delivery of your belongings is made.
