When residential moving services, like us at In & Out Moving & Delivery in Charlotte, NC, provide you with an estimate, we know that every move is different. Although general guidelines for pricing are based on how many bedrooms a home has and the overall square footage, at the end of the day, it all comes down to volume.
Someone who has only lived in a home for 5 years, compared to someone who has lived in a home for 30 years, will definitely require a different moving experience – even if both homes are similar in size – because the volume of items will vary greatly.
Other factors like access to the pick-up and drop-off locations will also affect how a move flows. Many people think that the access to their homes is easy, but they don’t realize that when residential moving services are at work, each and every step taken by the crew prolongs the procedure. This translates into a longer move and, ultimately, a higher final bill. Even though the crew does everything they can to ensure the truck is parked as close to your front door as possible, there are always homes that don’t offer this luxury.
Another area where time may vary is in preparing furniture for the move. In addition to assessing weight, it is very important to know how delicate pieces are. When it comes to heavy antiques, prepping time for the residential moving services obviously increases, since greater care and attention are needed to transport the items.
