How are moving estimates calculated?
Moving estimates are calculated based on the several items. As you look ahead to your moving day, here’s a comprehensive list of things that can cause your moving prices to fluctuate.
- The weight of your household goods: If it has been a while since you donated clothes to charity or did some cleaning to get rid of things you rarely use, this is the perfect time to de clutter. As you move into a new place, you should only take things that you use and bring value to your life. This will help you create a neat new home in Phoenix and save you money along the way by costing you less to have it moved.
- The complexity of your moving requests: Frankly put, some moves are a lot more difficult to execute than others. If you simply need to your household items lifted into a moving truck and driven to Phoenix, that’s not too tough an ask and it shouldn’t cost you and arm and a leg. However, if your moving requests are a lot more detailed and you need full packing services, cleaning services and storage units, you can expect to pay more.
- The details of your move: The details of your move always matter. Do you need specialty items such as pool tables and hot tubs moved? Or do you live on the 5th floor of a condo and your service elevator isn’t working? These are the kinds of things that can certainly increase the cost of your move. It’s important that you are upfront about anything that may cause the movers stress or make things more challenging.
