So you made the move from one side of the country to the other side. It was a daunting process, but it was done, thanks largely to the long distance moving services of the moving company you hired for the job. Now it is time to pay the bills. But do you know, exactly, what you are paying for?

You have probably done your research prior to the move, choosing the moving company with moving rate that is within your budget. However, it would also be a good idea to know what you are paying for.


Let us take a look at the breakdown of the cost you paid your movers.

Long Distance Movers Labor cost

The cost for manpower could be further broken down into two: direct labor and indirect labor. Direct labor would refer to the wages and compensation of the people directly involved with the move, such as the drivers who will be driving the moving trucks and the staff who will be carrying the items to be moved.  If you avail of the moving company’s packing and unpacking services, the professionals who will work on these tasks will also fall under this category. Meanwhile, those who are indirectly involved include the support personnel who you communicated with when getting quotes or estimates and when you were working out a schedule for the move. Those who are in charge of monitoring the move, as well as in security and safety, are also included.


Long Distance Movers Cost of utilities and other overhead

Fuel and truck maintenance costs fall under this heading. There may be repairs that have to be done, or there may be modifications or alternative solutions that have to be in place in order to fully accommodate the client’s needs and specifications. Those will also be included in the calculation of the quote.


Long Distance Movers Insurance costs.

Of course, clients would want their items to be insured, especially if they are high-risk or of a sensitive nature. Many moving companies already include insurance costs to their quotes.

Other moving companies have other inclusions in the cost, but these are the primary ones.
