Best Long Distance Moving Prices

Moving companies will take weight and distance into consideration when calculating a price for your relocation services. You can considerably reduce the cost of moving by holding a garage sale or donating items that you no longer have a use for. This will lessen the weight loaded onto the truck.

Long Distance Moving Prices

In most cases, the movers will weigh the truck they plan to use for the haul. This is referred to as the tare weight. Then, once your items are loaded onto the truck, they’ll calculate the gross weight and subtract the tare weight to get the net weight. The net weight is the exact weight of your belongings. This is what they will base your moving service rate off of along with all other calculations that must be made such as current fuel costs and the distance of travel.

The Importance of Insurance Coverage during Relocation

Although it isn’t too common for your property to go missing or suffer harm, there are risks involved with relocation. It is always wise to have full insurance coverage on your belongings as they’re in the care of the movers. Depending on what state the moving company is located in, insurance coverage will vary. Every state sets a minimum amount of insurance protection that licensed movers are required to carry for their customers. If you wish for additional insurance coverage, ask if they will allow you to purchase more.

In the beginning of the move, the professionals will create an inventory list. It is recommended that the owner of the belongings do the same. If anything is missing once all your items arrive at their new home or you notice any damage, report it to the movers right away. They will help you with the process of filing an insurance claim.
