Even with the same amount of luggage and the size of the house, the estimated amount of moving will vary greatly depending on the moving company. Whether the fee is high or low may be difficult for some people to understand when moving, which they have never experienced in their lives.
Basically, the moving fee varies depending on the conditions of the person moving, so there is no single fee that is the same. When looking for an , first you decide on a moving company after understanding the moving procedure and moving fee.
How are Moving Costs and Fees Determined?
The following four factors determine the moving fee. The actual cost will vary greatly depending on the time of year.
Fare: If the travel distance is short, it is calculated by time; if it is long, it is calculated by distance, and a surcharge will be charged for holidays, early morning and late night. The law sets a maximum amount, so you will not be charged more than a certain amount.
Actual cost: In addition to the cost of packing materials such as cardboard and gum tape, the most significant amount is the labor cost of moving staff. The more luggage you have, the more people you need to carry, and the higher the price.
Vehicle detention fee: You will be billed if you park your truck for a long time if the requester cannot arrange a parking lot in advance.
Ancillary services (optional): It is a charge for exceptional work that is not usually done. For example, various optional services such as attachment/detachment of home appliances such as air conditioners and vehicle transportation.
How to find a free moving company:
This is simple, and the best thing to do is to call directly and check. But, if you just call and confirm, you will spend time in the usual flow (estimate → negotiation → fixed amount), so please try to negotiate a limit using the market price table created by us. You can save time. Companies that accept limited prices tend to have a high vacancy rate.
Reputation: The first is to look up the reputation of the company. We recommend that you check the number and ratio of “good evaluation” and “bad evaluation”. Any moving company can get both good and bad evaluations by searching online.
Psychologically, “bad experiences” are more likely to be communicated to others and tend to appear in word of mouth as “bad evaluations.” In addition, word-of-mouth sites often collect word-of-mouth with some kind of gift, and in this case, a bland “good evaluation” tends to be registered.
Scope of service:
Whether or not the following services are available and whether they are included in the price will vary depending on the moving company and the moving situation.
- Will collect cardboard
- Workers change socks
- Installation / removal of electronic machinery
- Will disassemble and assemble furniture such as beds
- After moving, the furniture will be moved once
In principle, large furniture such as beds, which are difficult to carry out as it is, is included in the estimate, but some small and medium-sized companies have many things possibilities, so remarkable confirmation is required.
Basically, moving companies use a common rule called standard moving contracts, and they are supposed to compensate for broken by moving things.
However, some vendors have their own rules, and if they break their luggage, they may not be able to receive satisfactory compensation. So when asking a moving company, check your compensation and don’t use those who can’t get compensation.
Detailed contract terms:
It is safe to check the detailed contract conditions as they change each time you move. Under some important conditions, the price tends to be cheaper, but there are disadvantages, so be sure to understand in advance before choosing.
