Most movers will get the tare weight by weighing the truck they plan to use for your belongings during transport. Once all your stuff is loaded onto the truck, the movers will weigh the truck again to get the gross weight. They’ll then subtract this weight from the tare weight to get the net weight. The net weight is the number they need to consider when calculating your final out of state moving costs. The net weight as well as the current fuel costs and the distance between the pickup and delivery addresses will help the movers determine an accurate cost for services.
