Moving Tips & Resources

How are “extra charges” added on to moving costs?

Extra charges may be applied to the total cost of your local or intrastate move, after your in-home survey is completed and moving estimate is calculated. If you fail to show your moving consultant a certain area of the home (i.e. crawl space, shed, basement or attic) or if you anticipated a garage sale that never happened, then moving these items would be an added cost. Extra charges are also possible if you’re moving in to or out of a multi-level apartment building or high-rise condominium. The driver can charge for “stair carries” or the added distance from the truck to your front door.
