In This article we would like to describe Dumbo Moving’s Moving Cost Estimator. Many companies like to keep how they price moves secrets but here at Dumbo Moving we believe in transparent pricing. There are many factors that determine the price of your move but time isn’t one of them. Moves done but Dumbo Moving are not hourly (unless specified, like if a customer has a move within the same apartment building that they are currently living in). Your move will not cost more depending how long the move will be. We charge per move not by estimated time.
Another way we are different than other moving companies is that we do charge by the square footage (how much space your stuff takes up on our truck.) and not by weight. Our movers are strong and our trucks are stronger so it does not matter how heavy your stuff is. By charging people based off space rather than weight, the customer has a better idea of how much their move will be (no more weighing boxes before your move).
Moving estimate: Price Adjustments
One factor that goes into your moving price estimate are the number of flights of stairs. Have an elevator no problem but if you have walk up, the amount of flights of your new home will be taken into account (as well as your old home.)
Depending what insurance you want is another factor of your Moving Cost Estimate. Chances are if you are reading this, our regular moving insurance will be fine from your move. If you are business or moving art, than an upgraded insurance should be of interest.
Do you need Packing Materials? We include free wardrobe boxes for your move (cardboard boxes with a metal bar designed for hanging clothes). But if you need moving boxes or for movers to pack and unpack your items for you, than those are factors that will make the cost of your move go up. So the more work you do, the less work our movers will have to do and the cheaper your move will be. Keep these things in mind in when using our Moving Cost Estimator.
Moving price: Discounts
Are you a Senior Citizen? You are entitled to a discount. But if you aren’t, don’t worry we offer plenty of other discounts or deals for your move. Did someone refer you to our company? If you are referred to our company, let your moving consultant know. Both you and the person referred you to our moving company are owed some money. If it is your first move and you were referred, you will be receiving a referral discount. While the person who referred you receives a commission from your move. If this is the second time you are moving with our company, you can’t receive a referral discount but do not worry you will be getting a repeat customer discount anyhow.
Check out our Facebook page or Twitter page for more discounts or deals. We are currently running a deal on Groupon and Yelp. So remember all these discounts when you getting a moving price approximation from our website.
