The Cost of Moving
A moving company can’t give a customer a true total for their services until they receive information from them and compare it with other details regarding the move. In fact, most movers prefer to perform an inspection of the home before giving out a total. When they arrive for this evaluation, they’ll tally up the rooms there are to pack and load. They’ll also decide what size hauler is needed as well as how much physical help they’ll need to complete the relocation. Other details are also taken into account as they go through the home. When they finalize the evaluation, they’ll go over your options with you and offer their professional recommendations and advice.
Other than the information collected during the evaluation, there are other determinants. Some of these include the distance between both homes, the price of gas at the time, the supplies and materials needed if full packing is desired, as well as the amount of labor needed to safely perform the relocation. After they take all into consideration, they will have the ability to come up with an honest total.
How to Keep the Cost of Relocation Even Lower
Even with the already low rates held by moving companies, it isn’t uncommon to show concern over the cost of your move. If you wish to keep the cost of your relocation even lower than you were quoted, here is some friendly advice...
- See if the moving company has any discounts to offer qualifying individuals or any current running specials.
- Get rid of any broken household items or ones with no use to you anymore. You may even want to consider having a garage sale to earn some extra money fi you have enough time on your hands.
- If at all in the realm of possibility, schedule your relocation with the mover during an off-season (winter months). A lot of movers will lower their rates during these slower months to encourage more business.
- Stay organized during the relocation process to only encourage a successful, stress free move- one without costly complications.
- Use materials you have around the house to pack your belongings up. For example, use linens, blankets and newspaper to wrap your household goods in and to fill spaces in boxes. You can also collect used boxes from local shops and neighbors.
- Make sure the entire value of your goods is insured. All movers offer partial insurance coverage, about $0.60 per pound. Take advantage of additional insurance plans even if it’s means you’ll pay a small extra fee.
- Have the house clean and ready for the movers. They must have a clean, uncluttered space to maneuver in for the loading and unloading process.

Preparing for a Move
When you’re on top of things during the moving process, you can that all will go as planned. As soon as you schedule with a mover, you should create a checklist of things to do in preparation of moving day.
For those who opted out of full packaging services or full service moving, it’s important to start the packing process at least a month ahead of time. Make sure you have the proper packaging supplies and that you label each box clearly. Stack each box neatly in the room that they were packed away in.
Before the movers arrive for the loading process, make sure to have any children or pets out of the house for the day if you can. This will only help the movers get the job done quicker and with less risk involved. Have the house cleaned and all entryways, stairs and hallways free from clutter. If you live in an apartment or other organized place of residency, get the proper permissions and if necessary, a parking permit. The movers will need to park their truck as close to the entrance of the home or building as possible.
