How are the moving quotes calculated?
Based on the assessment of the cargo that needs to be moved or shipped, the necessary equipment, packing supplies and employees needed to manipulate the freight, the mover will calculate an approximate cost and quote it to you. On on-site quotes tend to be more accurate as they cover all the details of the move, compared to a more general quote given over the phone. Beware of movers who refuse to give you free on-site moving quotes, as you could risk dealing with a company that charges hidden fees and extra charges that were not part of the original quote.
How can I get a moving quote?
You can either use a specialized moving cost calculator online, fill in the details of your move and wait for an approximate cost to be calculated for you automatically, or use the next formula:
(rate/hour) X (hours needed to complete the relocation) X (number of movers) + (additional travel fees) + (extra packing and moving services)
You can also ask for a free moving estimate online, by phone, using an email or short price quote form most movers have on their websites on by having an estimator come over and complete a weighing of the cargo.
What is a binding estimate?
Binding quotes refer to the price that has been quoted in the mover’s estimate and it represents the amount of money you will need to pay, even when the freight will weigh less or more than the original amount that has been initially estimated. The mover can also charge you for the binding estimate, as opposed to a non-binding price quote that is usually free.
How much do intrastate/out of state moves cost?
An average state-to-state move should cost around $5,600 on average, while the interstate move cost should be around $1,150, on average, based on a cargo weighing 7,000 pounds.
What is the average cost per pound for a long-distance move?
Generally, a long-distance move should cost around $.50 and $.70 per pound of items that need to be relocated 1,000 miles from the starting location. A one-bedroom apartment normally hosts goods that weight 2,000 pounds on average, which means that the moving cost would reach anywhere between $1,000 and $1,400. These costs will go up and down, depending on the distance that the movers will need to travel (more or less than 1000 miles) and ant additional services that may be needed.
Do I need to pay the moving company before or after the move?
A reliable, honest and highly reputable moving company like the ones we rate and review for you will never ask for an upfront cash payment or a large cash deposit prior to the move.
When will I be asked to pay the invoice?
Usually, you should expect to pay the bill on the day when all your items will safely reach your new address, upon the completion of the move. Paying upfront means having little to no control over the day when you will be able to regain control over your items.
Can I pay using my credit card?
If possible, pay using a credit card to minimize any risk of falling victim to fraudulent activity. While all the movers we recommend are highly trustworthy and reputable, if, for any reason, you may need to file a complaint against them, using a credit card as a payment method should come in handy.
Do movers charge by freight volume or weight?
Each mover uses a different policy when calculating the costs of a relocation, but the majority of movers will not charge exclusively by cargo volume or weight unless they will be required to ship cargo at some point during the move. If this is the case, the volume and weight of the freight will be used to determine the final costs of the relocation. Usually, the manpower and time needed to complete a move, the packing materials, furniture disassembling and reassembling, packing services, temporary, gas, special moving requests and the rest of logistics will contribute to the final bill.
