Factors That Can Change Your Moving Costs 

Most people hire an experienced, reputable moving company to smoothly carry out the process. They can offer an accurate estimate, based on your requests. But sometimes, there are additional costs that might accrue during the move.  

Difficulty Level 

There are many aspects that cannot always be accounted for without the proper knowledge. This includes access to either home. If the driveway is inaccessible to a larger truck, this will incur a shuttle charge because we will have to load onto a smaller truck, then transfer to the larger truck. This charge only applies at the original address. Also, staircases and small elevators in apartment buildings can cause added time and issues for your move. If you are aware of any possible roadblocks let us know ahead of time so we can make a plan. 

Time and Season 

Summer is the busiest time of the year for moving companies. You will spend more during this season and could incur additional costs if your move takes longer than anticipated. This happens because it could impact another client’s time with the movers. When discussing moving days and times, make sure that you share every aspect of your move to create an accurate timeline. 

Storage Fees 

If your home is not ready at the time of the move, you will need to store your items. Whether you store them with your moving company or place them in another storage unit, the expense will increase with each day.
