The price for every move varies depending on the size of the move. Most movers use a straightforward method that involves the weight of the load and miles that must be traveled to accomplish the move. The key to determining cost is to work with a reputable company that provides a written price for your move.
Typical Costs Associated with A Move
Factors that determine the cost of a move include the size of your move, the type of services you get from the mover, the length of the move in miles and the moving supplies you buy.
- Storage costs, if needed
- Travel fees, which include fuel costs and the manpower time spent moving belongings from Point A to Point B
- Specialty services, such as moving fragile art pieces or classic cars
- Liability insurance you purchase above the basic carrier coverage provided by the mover
The typical move costs around $1,500. That price can go much higher if you have a lot of items or are moving a long distance. It could come out much smaller if you have just a one-bedroom apartment and are moving across town.
Issues With Price
Unfortunately, the moving business attracts plenty of scam artists, especially areas such as South Florida where so many people move every year. In some cases, a mover may give you one price and then quote another once all your belongings are on the truck.
This “holding your items hostage” strategy happens more often than you might think. That’s why it’s important to hire a professional moving company that is well-known, has a good reputation and is transparent about price.
