How Does Moving Calculator Calculate Estimated Move Costs?
Our estimated move costs are calculated by referencing intrastate and interstate moving tariffs. These tariffs provide the industry standards in which moving companies follow to provide moving prices. Moving Calculator compares moving tariff rates to actual move cost data to improve accuracy.
The History of Moving Calculator
In late 2015, a group of individuals with various backgrounds in the moving industry wanted to create a resource for customers in the early stages of moving.
These resources would include:
- Defining your type of move in simple terms that those outside of the industry can understand.
- Outlining what to expect when moving and detailing the move process.
- Connecting customers with trusted, full-service, moving companies.
- Providing moving guides and information for every step of the move process.
- And creating a move cost calculator that would allow anyone moving the opportunity to know their expected costs and help budget their move.
With these ideas in mind, Moving Calculator was created at the start of 2016. The month of January was spent building the move cost calculator.
Moving Calculator was designed with both consumers and moving companies in mind. Those looking to move can enter simple move information and receive an estimated cost range. This estimated cost range can be used to compare against move quotes received by moving companies.
Because Moving Calculator is based off of industry move pricing, your estimated move costs should align with the estimated cost detailed in move quotes provided by moving companies.
When calculating your move costs using Moving Calculator, we are working towards keeping moving companies honest in their pricing. If you receive a move quote that is significantly less than what was calculated using Moving Calculator, it is probably too good to be true.
The next step for Moving Calculator was to combine the ability to calculate estimated move costs with relevant move information. The months of February and March were dedicated to creating and organizing moving information to help answer any questions you may have about moving.
Within a few months, Moving Calculator has become a “one-stop shop” for calculating your estimated move costs, learning about the process of moving, and connecting those looking for movers with trusted moving companies in their area.
Moving Calculator made its online debut in April of 2016. Each week we continue to update our moving resources to help you calculate move costs and plan your upcoming move.
