Moving Calculator’s FAQs
If you have a question of Moving Calculator, we have answers to our FAQs.
What is Moving Calculator?
Moving Calculator is a moving cost calculator designed to accurately estimate move and packing costs. Enter simple details about your move and receive an estimated price range for the cost of your move.
How does Moving Calculator work?
Moving Calculator calculates estimated move costs based on the size and distance of your move. The selected size of your move is compared to a distance multiplier using local move prices and industry average costs. By selecting full or partial packing, costs are calculated based on the industry rates to pack the size of your home. Your final estimated cost is intended to be a ball-park estimate to compare against quotes received by moving companies.
Is Moving Calculator a moving company or moving broker?
Moving Calculator is neither. We are a resource designed to improve the overall experience of moving. We do not own trucks or hire movers. We calculate move costs, connect you with moving companies, and provide resources to help with your move.
A moving broker acts as the middle man between customers and moving companies. Often, moving companies will buy into a moving broker’s service to receive leads which they compete for. Since moving brokers are not accountable for the quality of service delivered once the moving company takes over, there is no course of action to take against the broker.
Moving Calculator is not a moving broker. We only recommend trusted moving companies through our network of moving companies. We do not sell leads or receive any percentage of booked moves.
Why do you need my email and phone number to calculate my move?
Here at Moving Calculator, we like to follow up, via email, verifying your calculated move cost. You will receive one email from Moving Calculator to verify using our services. If you are in the Detroit area or Oakland County Market, you may be contacted by a Professional Movers.com Moving Consultant to answer any moving questions and setup an in-home survey.
What area does Moving Calculator cover?
Moving Calculator can calculate estimated move costs anywhere within the United States. Moving Calculator does not currently support the ability to calculate international moves.
Can I book a moving company through Moving Calculator?
Moving Calculator only recommends moving companies in your area. We caution booking with movers online or over the phone. Your moving company should perform an in-home estimate to be able to provide you with the most accurate pricing for your move.
What if I think my move size is more or less than the move size of my home?
Moving Calculator’s move cost calculator offers a range cost that includes a low, for those who have less items than the average move, and a high, for those who tend to have more stuff. This range covers the average weights of each move size. If you think you have more or less than your average move size, you can select the next closest move size to calculate your move.
