How do you determine the price for Household and Home Shifting ?

The pricing depends on the following factors :-

1. Items to be Shifted:- The more the items, the higher the cost. Normally the transporter will charge you for a full truckload even if the items to be shifted are less than a truckload. Hence, it is important to talk to the transporter first and find out the load of the truck that will be used for transportation.

2. Distance to be Covered:- The more the distance, the higher the cost.

3. Day of Shifting:– Like any business, the Home Shifting industry also has its peak and low seasons. Peak season (Feb – July) quotes will be higher than off peak season rates.

Should we book different companies for packing and moving separately, or one company for both?
