Relocation Types Pricing
Local vs. Long Distance Pricing!
How do I know if I am getting a good price?
Local moves pricing is different from long Distance moves. First off you have to know what local move is and what long distance move is. Local move is considered within the same state boundaries, while long distance is when you move out of the state.
Local moves are charged by the hour. Clients are charged an hourly rate for the time movers spent performing their relocation. The rate is applicable whether the movers are wrapping, loading or driving. The rate itself is determined by the crew size required. Some moves required two men and a truck, while other three mean and a truck. It all depends on the size of your home and the inventory. Travel time fee also apply for local moves. This fee includes the cost of fuel, mileage, equipment and any other time of the move during which the hourly rate is not in effect. Packing materials fee may also apply.
Long distance pricing is per cubic foot (cuft) or by the weight. In some both apply. Usually there is a minimum charge for certain cubic foot or weight. The pricing and rates can be adjusted depending on the size of the job and moving areas involved. Some clients may require full packing services that will discount the pricing. Packing materials fee may also apply. Packing labor cost may also apply.
Least but not last, the best way to make sure you are getting a good price is to contact multiple moving companies. Consider all the info above and request moving quotes from at least three companies. Compare the services they offer for the price they are asking and then decide what is a good price for you. Consider your budget and time constraints in order to choose the best moving deal.
