Preparation for the calculation
Before every job, you must properly prepare for what’s to come. The same stands for using the moving calculator. Although it seems like an easy thing to do, which is not far from the truth, you still want to have the right information prepared. Because, if you don’t provide the exact information, the difference between the actual price and the NYC moving quote you got using the calculator could be huge. Especially when calculating the price for using the services of long distance movers NYC. Nevertheless, the difference can be significant even for the NY local move. Therefore, here is what information you must prepare:
- The exact addresses are a must- The distance is an important factor of a moving quote in New York. So have them prepared before you use the calculator.
- Have a list of ALL the items moving with you- Make a checklist of all belongings you plan to be relocated to your new home.

- Check on the supplies, the equipment, and the tools- You should know what you need to acquire for your relocation, this will influence the price for your NY move.
Pick up and delivery address make an important impact on NY moving companies quotes
It is of significant importance to enter the proper addresses in the appropriate fields of moving calculator. It looks like an unimportant matter, but think again. Is it the same of you’re moving only 2-3 miles away or making a lot longer relocation? The difference isn’t only in miles the moving company needs to drive. It is also in time spent during the relocation, difficulty of the route to your new home etc. So, make sure you have the exact address for your new home. Because we assume you are probably well-informed of the address where you currently live. Of course, all of this if you want to receive an exact, or near exact NY moving quote.
What kind of services are you hiring the NYC movers for?
I guess you had someone advising you to do some part of the relocation by yourself. In order to save money. Am I right? Well, it’s true that you lower the price by putting an effort. The more effort you put, the less money you pay. But the greater risk you take. The commonly advised part of the relocation for DIY projects is the packing. Being that in all other parts you need to put quite an effort, potentially not having an expertise for it (such as driving a big moving truck or loading/unloading your belongings).
Hence, there are three ways to conduct your relocation:
- Conducting all the relocation by yourself– But in that case, you wouldn’t be interested in an NYC moving quote, right?
- Hybrid move- You and the moving company conduct one part of the relocation each.
- Let the moving professionals do everything- The moving pros do everything by themselves.
The major component of an online NYC moving quote- the volume of the relocation
Yes, as we said, the distance is important, as the time spent during the relocation is. But what makes the crucial impact on the quote for New York move is the volume of your relocation. You must make a checklist of each and every little piece of item you are moving. Depending on that, the moving company gets the information about the number of workers required, the equipment needed, the number of moving trucks for the relocation, how much moving boxes, and which size to use and all other important details. All of this New York City movers get to know when you check the items you are relocating in the appropriate step of online NYC moving quotation.
Depending on the size of your relocation, with the help of the moving calculator, you will be able to conclude whether or not you will get cheap moving professionals in New York. Because in case you can calculate here and there to lower the price for your move. But if your relocation demands a big effort, then you can’t count on cheap NYC moving quote.
So, you must decide what kind of move you want. And you should decide it before you use the moving calculator. Because, as we said, the price raises if you use more services. And we offer all sorts of services you might require during the relocation. Including self-storage NYC, and additional moving services. So once you know what kind of services you would like to use during the relocation, you can use the calculator form.
Every detail can influence the quotation for NYC move
This is why we advise you, once again, to be honest when searching for an moving quote in NYC. So inform your movers of any issue that might appear during the New York relocation. For example, you could have an unusual item demanding special care during the relocation. You could have a piano. So you would be requiring a specialized team of NYC piano movers. Because you can’t move the piano just like that, you need special equipment and special professionals for that.
Besides this, your home could have a lot of stairs. Or a difficult approach. You could have some dangerous part of the building that could harm the moving professionals. All of this you must disclose to your movers when looking for the New York relocation quotation. Because only the complete information provides the precise quotation. Everything else is a rough estimate which means nothing to you or to your mover.
Do you have the proper equipment for your part of the relocation?
In case you are going to pack in DIY manner, do you have what it takes? First, do you have the supplies and the tools? For the packing, you need the boxes, the packing tape, the bubble wrap, the wrapping paper etc. In case you don’t have some or all of these items, you must acquire them before the packing, or you should contact your moving professionals and check if you can get something from them. This is an additional expense, and hence you must know what you need before you come for a NY moving quotation.
Aside from equipment, do you have the know-how for disassembling/reassembling furniture? Or for packing the fragile items? In case you don’t, learn before the relocation, or hire professional movers for the services of packing, and even for unpacking help after your relocation is over. All of this changes the NY moving quote. Make sure you gather all these information before you use the moving calculator, or prepare for a shock once your relocation starts and your mover informs you of a lot bigger price for your relocation.
