The cost of the moving service is determined by several factors, but the weight, volume and distance between the place of loading and the destination of the goods are the factors of major importance.
We have listed below the factors that are taken into account in compiling a price offer.
a. Volume and weight of goods.
Depending on the weight and total volume of your goods, taking into account the distance between the loading location and the destination will determine what means of transport is needed to make the move. These factors are also crucial in estimating the costs of packaging and handling services.
b. Distance traveled
It is easy to understand why the costs for a move involving the transport of goods over a distance of 1500 kilometers are higher than the costs of a local move (max. 40 km between the loading and unloading location) or a move in which the distance between origin and destination is 400 kilometers.
c. Assembly, packaging and handling service
A complete moving service may involve dismantling / reassembling the furniture, either to optimize the volume of the load, in case of long distance moves, or due to the fact that the furniture is too bulky to be handled properly. Partial or total packaging of goods and loading and unloading of goods at destination
d. Other Determinants of Moving Service Quotation

Need for a vehicle transport platform.
Temporary or long-term storage Moving very heavy objects (piano, various equipment, safes, jacuzzis, etc.).
Moving special objects, art or heritage.
The need to use an outdoor elevator.
