Most moving companies offer an online estimate to give you an idea of what the move would cost you. However, if you start out thinking that you have 20 boxes, but it is closer to 50, this can fluctuate the price of the move. Sometimes, it is better to speak to a representative directly and give them an idea of what you are working with. It may even be in your best interest to have a mover come out and look to determine what exactly you can expect to pay. Also, keep in mind that your estimates will vary depending on what floor you are on. Anything involving stairs typically costs more, so do not leave that out of your information when getting an estimate. However, if your move is simple, these online estimates can save you some time in the planning process.
