Defining the 3rd Factor in Moving Quotes
The cost of an interstate move is primarily determined by three factors: distance, weight, and extra services rendered.*
Distance and weight are easily understood, but many transferees are uncertain about the 3rd factor, extra services.
Extra services are often required to ensure that valuable or cherished items are moved safely from one location to another. This may include dismantling, reassembling, and/ or crating and uncrating of items.
Items requiring additional attention may include:
Since the van line provider assumes liability for the safe shipment of these items, it is often at their discretion whether these services will be required. Sometimes it is the transferee that requests additional services for items that are especially important to them.
- Plasma televisions
- Pool tables
- Grandfather clocks
- Hot tubs
- Exercise equipment
- Glass table tops
Another extra service which may be required is a shuttle. A shuttle is a smaller truck which is used to transport household goods to or from the home in places where the large truck is unable to navigate, or where damage to property might be possible.
Other additional services may be requested by a transferee including:
The Move Advocate strongly urges transferees to obtain visual surveys of their household goods. An on-site survey will allow the surveyor to note any items that will require special handling and those charges will be reflected in the written estimate. A visit to the home will also give the surveyor an opportunity to anticipate the need for a shuttle. If the transferee believes a shuttle may be required at destination it is a good idea to mention this to the van line.
- Packing and/or unpacking
- Carpet cleaning
- Debris removal
- Maid services
