The Cost of Moving
To receive a genuine total on the cost of your moving services, you will likely be asked to schedule an inspection of your Sylacauga home first. For this evaluation, the movers will come in equipped with paper and writing utensils so that they can take notes. They will count rooms, assess how much stuff there is to transport, and get a feel for overall difficulty that the relocation might present. After inspecting what they must, they will come to a determination on several things such as how much help and time is needed, and what trucks to use for the job at hand.
After they conduct this inspection they will also consider the following before drawing up an honest quote…
- The cost of fuel at the time of the move
- How much your stuff weighs (determined after it is loaded on the truck)
- The distance between both locations
- The services you wish to take advantage of

Over the phone estimates and online calculators are often offered so that potential customers can get an idea of what moving services may cost through that particular mover. Although these aren’t precise totals, they do help give some insight. With these quotes you can make a sounder decision as to whom you should hire. Of course you should combine these quotes with the knowledge you obtained during your Internet search. Don’t go ahead and hastily hire the mover to hand you the cheapest quote.
If you prefer a more personal quote, call the moving company instead of using the online calculator. Although the calculator provides faster results in most instances, calling in is more efficient and honest. You are able to give the mover more details over the phone than you by submitting the form introduced by the online calculator. Not to mention, you will have the ability to seek out answers to questions you might have and to inquire about any possible discounts you can take advantage of if you qualify.
