Everything You need to know about the Cost of Professional Movers

Whether you’re planning on moving locally or long-distance, one of the first decisions you’ll need to make is choosing between a DIY move or hiring professionals such as My Moving Company.  That decision comes down to two important factors – price and preference.  Personal preference dictates how much of the moving process you want to handle yourself.  For instance, would you rather do all the packing, loading, and transporting or avoid the heavy lifting by watching professionals handle all of that while you focus on other aspects of your pending move and relocation?

The answer to those questions depends on how much effort you want to exert and how much time you have to dedicate to a DIY move.  Regardless of your preferences, your budget may be the primary determining factor in choosing between a DIY move or hiring a full-service moving company like My Moving Company.  If your budget is the key to determining which type of move you choose, it’s important to understand what My 3 Sons moving cost entails.  The following will give you a better idea of what a full-service moving company does and what it will cost based on certain factors. And we are sure that you’ll agree that hiring professional movers is a better option.

What does a full-service moving company do?

Unlike regular moving companies that only provide the basic relocation services (e.g. loading, transporting, and unloading), our company provides an extensive line of moving services for everything associated with your move.  Some of the more common services that customers request include:

  • bringing extra padding and furniture blankets as well as all of the boxes, bubble wrap, wrapping paper, and packing tape needed for your move
  • disassembly of larger, bulkier furniture items and reassembly of them at your new home or office
  • help with packing your belongings and personal effects; help unpacking these items at your new home or office
  • special handling and crating of fragile, high-end, and valuable items
  • temporary storage if required until your new home is ready to be occupied

The My Moving Company. team that assists with your relocation will even help you dispose of all used packing materials and other moving debris.  This is all part of My 3 Sons moving cost and services considered in the relocation process.  Keep in mind that full-service moves are classified in 3 different categories:

“intrastate” (within the same state) or local moves of 100 miles or less

“interstate” or long-distance moves of 100 miles or more

a combination of the two or “long-distance intrastate” (in the same state) moves of 100 miles or more

Calculating your moving costs?

There are several factors that influence your My 3 Sons moving cost including the total moving distance, supplemental moving services requested, movers needed, and the size of your home (shipping weight of your belongings).  Furthermore, the time of year that you’re moving can also be an influencing factor.  Believe it or not, the moving industry has an off-season and a peak season,usually May through September.  Other factors that can influence the cost of your move include:

  • liability and valuation coverage of your furniture and belongings (you may want to consider 3rd party moving insurance coverage)
  • storage for your items if your new home isn’t quite ready yet
  • travel fees such as the cost of gasoline and lodging

Estimating the cost of moving isn’t as easy as you would think.   As your moving and relocation specialists, My Moving Company. will provide an accurate estimate of the total cost of your move at NO CHARGE. Thus, you can shop and compare costs and services, while we hope that you choose to work with us.
