5 Factors That Determine A Moving Quote
- The weight and size of your belongings — The more stuff you have the longer the move. When you have lived in one household for years, it is easy to accumulate large amounts of furniture, books and such to fill the space. Think of moving as a time to simplify your life, e.g. reducing your moving weight by selling or donating items could mean huge savings.
- The distance between your origin and destination — The greater the distance the longer the move.

How can I cut back on moving costs when hiring a mover?
Only 2 things go on a truck. Furniture which we will blanket and boxes. So...
- For Local Moves put your china, glassware, computers, monitors, printers, jewelery, high-end artwork, family heirlooms etc. in the back seat of your car with boxes and blankets. Nothing is softer, nothing is safer.
- Box all your loose non-furniture items.
- Have your pathways clear
- Have a clear plan in your mind of what goes where. Maybe colored sticky notes on your boxes and furniture.
- Hydrate and maybe even feed your movers on bigger jobs. Pizzas and sandwiches always go well.
- Have back up plans i.e. have a storage unit lined up if everything doesn't fit, e.g. what if a couch won't turn a corner or fit in a loft or basement.
