Before you agree with any moving company, you should get a representation of the company looking to conduct an estimation for your home before the day. It is important to understand though, that is included in the estimation.
Too many people assume that it covers the simple process of moving, but there is lot more to that. We have listed down that key factors that contribute to the overall estimation of moving your home.
The actual labour: Remember that moving furniture and items is not easy work; it is quite stressful on your body and takes its toll. Part of the estimation will include the labour required for the job.
The time it might take to get the job completed: This is more difficult to completely nail down considering time is a factor when moving, and things happen. You should get a rough estimate of how long the job will take.
The size of the house: This will affect the timeframe required to complete the job. The larger the house, the longer it will take and so forth.
The equipment required: This is standard and is always considered part of the estimation. But remember that is just part of the overall price of the service.
The travel trips required: Remember that if you live in a big home, it might require the movers to take numerous trips back and forth, instead of one trip that might be required for an apartment.
Extra charge for heavy items, including the likes of piano, pool tables and marble tables. These are important to factor in when it comes to estimations, as the difficulty that comes with these heavy items are considered a different category. Remember that at the end of the day, this is an estimation and can change on the day. Just keep an eye on the price and on the movers to see where your money will be going at the end of the day.
