If a commercial move is in your future, there are some factors to consider when it comes to pricing.
What factors come into play when pricing an upcoming commercial move? That is a question often heard by commercial moving companies. A commercial relocation is more complicated and expensive than a residential move. There are many factors to take into account, including the distance of the move and the materials on the truck.
Factor #1: Distance
It is standard practice in the moving industry to charge more when moving items over longer distances. This is certainly the case with a commercial move, as the process requires a greater number of items transported, which leads to higher charges for distance than those seen in residential moves. The amount of the surcharge varies from company to company, so be sure to get a quote beforehand.
Factor #2: Items
Obviously, heavier items cost more to move; the sheer volume of items might lead to a surcharge as well. However, pricing also depends on the type of items involved. If the items are fragile or toxic, for instance, you may need to get a special quote from your moving company.
Factor #3: Valuation Protection
Valuation protection ensures coverage if your items get damaged during the move. Damage is rare, but it does happen. There are different levels of valuation protection, so ask your mover about the policies they offer.
