What Do Professional Movers Cost?
The cost of hiring a professional moving company can vary based on the number of items you are moving, the distance you are moving, and the level of services to be performed, among other details.
It is good practice to get several quotes before you hire a mover.
Tips on Getting an Accurate Moving Quote
Reputable moving companies will only quote their moving services after conducting an on-site survey. A quote or estimate given over the phone without visiting your residence or office will be purely speculative.
The most important aspect a moving company will consider in calculating the cost of your move is the total volume or the weight of your belongings being moved.
Other factors that affect the moving rate are:
- The number of delicate and fragile objects being handled and packed (fine china, crystals, porcelain, or other delicate decorations)
- Any items that need to be crated (such as fine furniture, musical instruments, art pieces, and glass table tops)
- Accessibility to the residence
- Long hallways
- The number of stair flights
- The number of furniture pieces that must be disassembled to load and fit onto the trucks
Ask for a written quotation or a moving contract with all the shipping and moving services clearly listed out. If you require delivery to more than one address or assembly of furniture other than beds, make sure that the quote states that the company will provide those services. Unless the move is international, when requesting a quotation, you should have the option to receive a flat-rate quotation or a per-hour of labor quotation.
