How To Calculate Your Moving Estimate

Sep 4, 2008
Almost all of us come across a situation when we need to shift your possessions from one place to another. We look out for a moving company to get out stuff relocated or may be plan your relocation on our own. The moving company gives the moving estimate that we need to pay for relocating our possessions to the new destination.

But it is not wise to rely solely upon the sales representative of the moving company for the moving estimate. It is quite easy for one to get a rough idea of the estimate. This will avoid the chances of cheating by the moving company. Here is a piece of advice that will help you to calculate your moving estimate.

Once you plan to hire a particular moving company, it is important that you get the estimate from the company in advance. No company will charge you for just making the estimate. Get a detailed description about the fact what the moving estimate includes and what it does not cover. Another important point is that you need to clarify in advance is whether the billing is done based on the Binding moving estimate or the non Binding moving estimate. Get a clear picture of the type of moving estimate that you will be billed later. Clarify about the hidden charges if any. Get every thing in writing from the moving company so that there are no problems in the end while settling the final payments.

It is not necessary that you hire a moving company to get your house or office relocated. In case you plan to move on your own you need to consider few things while making your moving estimate. When you are planning to move on your own, first of all estimate the size of the truck or trailer that you will need to sift your stuff to the destination. Apart from the cost of hiring the truck you need to take into account the cost of other accessories like tow bars, packing material or dollies that will be needed in loading your heavy furniture to the truck. The cost of all these accessories should also be included in you moving estimate.

You need to remember that although you are moving on your own, but you need labor to load and unload your possessions. So add up the cost of labor in your moving estimate. Your moving estimate should also include the cost of your train or air ticket that you will be spending to move your family members to the new location no matter you are hiring a moving company or moving on your own. So do not forget to add up these travel expenses in your moving estimate. Another petty but important expense that most of the people forget to include in their moving estimate is the cost of disconnection or connection of utility items such as gas, water and electricity.

So if you take into account these things you can calculate the exact moving estimate for your relocation.
