How to Calculate Your Moving Costs
The best way to stick to your moving budget is to make sure you know exactly what you’ll be spending. By knowing your charges upfront, you can easily save and stick to your budget for your move. Let’s take a look at this moving cost calculator to help you plan.
Calculating Your Actual Move Costs
The biggest expense when moving is the cost of the moving service. While this varies a lot depending on the type of service you choose, getting quotes can help you see which services fit into your budget. U-Pack is a great mid-level option – you save tons of money by doing the loading and unloading yourself, but you don’t have to drive. Click over to U-Pack’s moving cost calculator here to determine how much your move will cost. You will put in details about your move (like where you are moving to and from, and when you are moving) to get a price.
Your U-Pack moving quote includes:
- Space in a moving trailer or moving container
- Flexible loading and unloading time
- Fast transportation
- Liability coverage
- Fuel, driver, and tolls of the moving equipment in transit
- An experienced driver (That’s right! With U-Pack, you don’t have to drive!)
- 24-hour online tracking
So those are the things that your moving quote includes. To calculate your average moving costs, you have to add in the extras. The extras are things you will encounter before and during your move. Things like boxes, hotel stays, and more. Just jot down these costs, and add them up to calculate your moving costs.
