There is so much stress in the process of moving. Locating a dependable and reliable removalist company and getting packaging items consumes most of your time and that is just the beginning. The most pertinent question to ponder during this process is what will removals charge for their services and what factors do they take into account when determining these prices. Prices will vary based on if you are moving regionally or nationally.
Price Fo Packing
Removalist will quote you around $30-$35 per hour for compacting your items. This quote will include the appropriate packing items. Keep in mind that this quote does not include loading and unloading you items. Removals will quote you by the hour or per box.
If you are moving within the same state or within 100 miles of your current location, that is regional move or short distance. When it comes to moving a short distance, you will be charged by the hour. Some companies will ask that you pay a lump sum which includes you being quote at 3 to 4 hours of work. This means that even if the removalists finish the job under 3 hours, they will still be paid for the quoted rate of hours. The average cost for movers per hour is around $25-$30. Your total will be contingent on factors including how many items you have, the size of your home or office space, and if the movers are required to load, unload, and or haul your belongings.
If you are only needing labor to transport your things, you can expect to pay around $50-$70 per hour. When it comes to the size your place the range from as low as $150 to as high as $2,000. Some companies will even charge as much as $50-$120 an hour. If you are moving in the summer, during a holiday or on the weekend you may also end up paying more. It is best to do your research to find the company with quality service at a cheaper rate.
If you are moving over 100 miles it is considered to be long distance. Charges for this type of move will generally be a lot higher than regional moves. Companies prepare this quote by charging you by weight or volume of your items. If you choose a company that charge by weight, you should count on being quoted at $0.50 per lbs.
When it comes to companies that charge by volume, it is a more difficult process because movers will not be able to give you a quote until arrive on site. This process leaves you vulnerable to possible scammers.
In conclusion, you should not allow the stresses of moving to weigh you down. It is best to shop around when you know your move date to ensure you get exactly what you need. If you have family, coworkers or friends in the area ask for their recommendations.
