A Breakdown of Your Total Moving Costs
Once you provide personal information, location addresses, desired services, and a few other details to the mover, they’ll have the ability to calculate a true total for your moving costs. The weight of your belongings is another huge factor. In order to get the weight of your stuff, the moving company will decide what truck to use based on the information you gave them, they’ll then weigh the truck. Once your stuff is loaded on the truck they’ll weigh it again to get the gross weight. Once they subtract the gross weight from the weight of the truck, the movers will have the net weight. The net weight is the exact weight of all your possessions.
It is safe to assume that your total moving costs will remain under $3,000. The average rate for a move from New York to the UK is around $1,500. Of course, you’ll need to remember that there are other expenses involved with relocation, including taxes involved with the importation of your belongings.
