Why Weight Affects Moving Costs and How It Is Calculated

The weight and type of services chosen will matter as the professional movers calculate your total for moving services through them. Even though moving services are often affordable and cost effective, there are ways you can reduce the final cost for services. For example, you can rid of some of your belongings before the movers come. Donate items, hold a garage sale, or simply throw away items before the movers come to load the truck and weigh it.

Most moving companies will weigh the truck they plan to use for your belongings during transport. This calculation is referred to as the tare weight. Once all your belongings are loaded onto the truck, the movers will calculate the gross weight and subtract the tare weight to get the net weight. The net weight is the exact weight of all your stuff loaded onto the truck. The net weight as well as the latest cost of gas and other details will help the movers determine an accurate cost for services.
