Cost Of Full Moving Services Are Calculated

Assuming the weight of your belongings is somewhere around 7,400lbs, which is average according to the American Moving and Storage Association, your move could cost upwards to $5,000 if you’re relocating just over 1,000 miles away. Of course, this is just an average based on statistics. Your full service move could cost more or less depending on the nature of your move.

To find the least expensive yet most reliable full service mover nearby, go online to search for movers in the area. With a little research and patience, you can find an affordable mover with all the right credentials, services, and the latest moving technology and equipment to ensure a safe and successful move. By state laws, a moving company must carry the minimum set insurance protection for each of their customers. This is usually around $0.60 per pound.

How the Cost of Full Moving Services are Calculated

To give an estimate to a potential moving service customer, there are certain details and bits of information that you must inform the mover of. Even with the right information, it isn’t until the movers load your stuff onto the truck that they can give you an honest cost for your full service move. Here are some of the details taken into consideration as your moving service total is determined:

  • The distance of travel between both locations.
  • The cost of fuel at the time of the move
  • The amount of labor needed- most movers charge by the hour while some charge flat rates
  • The type of moving services purchased
  • The weight of your property being moved

For a more accurate total, the professional movers must come into your home to assess the amount of belongings you have to relocate. At this time, they’ll determine what size truck or trucks and laborers are needed to complete the full service move successfully. After they know what truck they must use, the truck is weighed before any possessions are loaded onto it. This is known as the tare weight. Then, once all your stuff is loaded onto the truck, it will be weighed again for the gross weight. When the tare weight is subtracted from the gross weight, the movers will have the net weight. The net weight is the total weight of your belongings and what the movers will use to calculate into your final cost for full service moving.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
