How to properly estimate moving costs?

The first step in estimating moving costs is to determine the size and distance of your move. This will help you calculate the amount of packing materials you will need and the size and number of moving trucks required for your move. You should also consider the time of year you are moving, as moving costs can vary depending on the season. Luckily, a moving cost calculator can help with many of these things.

Another critical factor to consider when estimating moving costs is the level of service you require. Will you need help packing and unpacking your belongings? Do you require storage facilities during your relocation? Where can a moving truck park close to your home? These additional services can add to your estimate.

Bear in mind that different moving companies offer different prices, so it’s crucial to do your research, find a reputable moving company and then compare the prices. We advise using a moving calculator to help you estimate your costs

Also, make sure to communicate with your chosen moving company to ensure that you have a clear understanding of all fees and charges associated with your move.

How much do long-distance moving companies cost?

The cost of your move depends mainly on the distance between your origin and destination. Long-distance moves will generally be more expensive due to time, fuel, and mileage. Even relatively short distances, like moving from Northern Virginia to Southern Maryland, can still be considered long-distance moves.

The price of your move will also depend on the size of your inventory, with larger loads typically costing more. Providing a comprehensive list of all the items you intend to transport is essential for a precise cost estimate.

Consider additional moving costs and fees

Here are a few of the most common moving cost factors:

  • Zip-to-Zip Distance
  • Pickup and delivery date
  • Travel time and expenses
  • Storage service
  • Packing 
  • Insurance plans
  • Utility connections
  • Deposits

If you plan to
move during the summer, we advise you to book your move 10 to 12 weeks in advance. Based on our experience, that period represents the peak of moving season, and many moving companies can be booked weeks in advance.

Moving during the off-season is more flexible and, in some cases, less expensive. However, we always recommend booking your date 4 to 8 weeks in advance to ensure you get the desired date.

Top 4 techniques to cut your moving costs

  1. Start with decluttering – Take your time to declutter your belongings and get rid of items you no longer need or use. We advise you to go room by room and make a list of items you will no longer need.

  2. Research and obtain quotes from multiple moving companies – Be sure to provide moving companies with accurate information about the size of your move, distance, and any additional services you may require.

  3. Go for off-peak moving dates – Try to schedule your move during the off-peak season or on weekdays. Some moving companies even work on Sundays!

  4. Use low-cost packing materials – In case you decide to move on your own, you can always find quality and affordable moving supplies.
