Moving price

How to get best moving price?

If you are planning to move, most probably you already called quite few removal companies to get best offer, but the quotes you got are so different that its rise the question, why the moving price difference is so great. Why some moving companies charge so much for the same moving service and does it means better or worse service? In order to figure out this dilemma and get best-right price for moving you should know exactly what you want to move, where you want to move and when you want to move.


Moving price break down

Location, location, location

First part of the moving price is Location, or how close is the moving company based to your premises you are moving from.

Tip one: Choose local moving company.

Moving time

Other part of moving price is moving time. In order to save money choose your moving time wisely. You should know that busy moving company means bigger moving price.
a.    Moving price will be always bigger during the weekends.
b.    Moving after working hours (after 5 p.m) will highly influence the price.
c.    Moving price will be bigger in the end of the month, because of salaries, when clients have money that means more moves, that leads to bigger moving price.
d.    “I Need Now” if you need moving service right now be ready to pay more.

Tip two: If you want to save on moving choose weekdays instead of weekends.

Moving distance

Moving distance between pick up and drop addresses.  Every moving company calculates the trip between both addresses including toll bridges ect. So don’t be surprised if the price will rise if you will want fast service and the moving company will have to use M50 to deliver your belongings faster.


If you live in apartments, agree with the moving company that you will bring all belongings to lobby, this should save you around 10 percent of the price. Loading from apartment usually takes quite a lot of time because of the stairs and elevators. Longer loading means more expensive service.
Loading full “LWB” van for two persons normally takes 20-30 minutes, as in apartments takes up to 1h 30m.

Tip three: Help moving company and they will help you

Moving price charge - hour/load

When you choose moving company you should ask if the charge per hour or per load. If you are moving all house its most probably better to choose price per load, as the moving company will be more interested to make move faster and easier for the client. The faster they finish the job faster they can take other one. So if you don’t want to worry about the time it is better to choose moving company that charges per load.

Parcel Dimensions and weight

All big delivery companies using delivery system that optimizes their deliveries. Such delivery companies can’t deliver one custom dimensions parcel for the price that would suit you, so what to do if you want to move custom dimensions table?
Our advice would be man with a van, as for them it doesn’t matter if it’s one small box or half van table, the price will be the same, as they charge per load.

Tip four: With custom dimension, better choose man with a van than Delivery Company.
