How Is the Cost of Your Move Determined?

Each mover decides their own services and rates for relocation services. They tend to use a similar system to come up with a customer’s final cost for their relocation. To determine the cost, there is one detail that is very important and that happens to be the weight of your belongings. To get the net weight, the moving company will weigh the truck being used to haul your stuff. The weight of the truck is called the tare weight. Once your items are loaded onto the truck, the weight of the truck is taken again. This is the gross weight. When the tare weight is subtracted from the gross weight, the net weight is determined. They’ll then combine the net weight with other factors that affect the cost of the move to calculate a more honest total for moving costs.
