Thinking about relocating your home can bring thrills. On my hand, you ruminate on the happiness of getting into a new house. On the other hand, you’re excited that you’ll make new friends.
But in all that euphoria, did you consider what moving home could cost you?
No? Maybe you even don’t have the idea!
Fortunately, this article contains all you need to know.
So, let’s get to it.
The Cost Of Moving A 3-bedroom House
So, with a removal company, you can help with packing. When you do that, the cost of moving your 3-bedroom apartment will be an average of £555.
However, the distance between the old home and the new destination should not be more than 25miles. Or the price could rise even further.
On the other hand, if you leave the packing and move to the removal company, it will cost you up to £815 (averagely).
Note: That doesn’t include the fee for packing and reassembling your properties.
Now, remember that the prices here are average. In other words, your move might cost more or even less.
But you’d like it to be less – won’t you?
Then, it is best that you consider these factors when moving.
Factors That Determines The Pricing Of Moving Your 3-bedroom Apartment
Accessibility & Proximity
The first thing to check is how motorable your location is. More importantly, how easy is it for a removal truck to retrieve the items at your front door?
Your answers will determine the size of the car that the removal company will use. Deductively, an accessible home means reduced price and vice versa.
In some cases of tight spaces, you might even need to hire shuttles to transfer your properties from your home to the mover’s vehicle.
Another factor that is similar to access is proximity. You would consider the distance that the movers will travel from your old residence to the new one.
For this, each removal company has a standard move per mile charge. So, inquire about your select mover.
Nevertheless, long distances move attracts more charges than short routes.
Volume Of What You Are Moving
The volume of your properties affect your charges in three ways:
- It determines how many crew members come.
- The time used to pack and arrange your properties.
- The size of the vehicle to convey your load
So, let’s break it down:
The more crew members come to help, the more charges you’ll pay per head. The same thing goes for the time-taken to fit your properties into the car.
Lastly, larger vehicles attract more charges because such compensate the company in terms of general maintenance. So, such means more money for you as well.
So, what can you do?
Movers usually consider the number of your properties in cubic feet. That comes to your advantage. How?
For example, you can fit your clothes and small appliances inside your wardrobe. And that would still be one space for different properties.
In the end, you should prepare ahead of your move. Try to reduce the work by doing minor packs and assembling. That way, your charges will drop significantly.
