HOW TO ESTIMATE MOVING

Estimating Your Move

 How much will it cost to move my home?  That’s a good question but the answer is not that simple.  There are different circumstances that factor into a move.  Is it local, long distance or international?  What quantity of items are you moving?  These are just a few of the questions that need to be answered before an accurate estimate can be given.  Here are some guidelines to help you further understand what a move entails.

  • Local move – Destination is within 100 miles from point of origin and is based on  distance and labor.
  • Long Distance – Destination is outside of 100 miles from point of origin and is based on distance and weight
  • International –  Destination is outside the 48 continental United States and is based on weight and volume.  These moves are almost always done over the ocean.  It is important to note that it is best that the moving company do the packing for an international move as they will need a full and complete inventory of the containers to clear customs.

Most moving companies will offer full service packing or other specialty services.  This too will be relevant in the final estimate of the move.

  1. My husband (Russ) and I have purchased a home in amarillo texas.I would like very much too speak to someone about the process and price. This is our first time moving long distance and I’m not sure where to start. My brother in law (Russ’s brother) Mike recommand you because he was very happy with the job you did for him.

The reason we chose Watford Moving & Storage was in one word - Daniel O'Brien - well maybe that's 2 or 3 words. If you'd like to deal with a moving dealer or representative, then call another firm. If you'd like your move handled by the owner of the moving company, then call Daniel O'Brien. Daniel was prompt, professional, personal and really did a near-perfect job in moving my wife and me from Calabasas to The Villages, Florida. In addition, Daniel coordinated the move of my parents larger home in the same moving van to Florida as well - all without a hitch. The Watford moving men were were hard working and honest, telling us when they made a mistake. As important, the same men who gathered our belongings on one end delivered them on them on the other . . . helps with pride of ownership of the job. Anyway, if you must move from beautiful Southern California then you need look no further . . . these are your guys.

I have used Watford Moving & Storage for the last ten years. I move every 2 - 3 years and call these guys. They arrive on time and are very professional. They are very careful with all my furniture and fragile possessions.Highly recommend Daniel and his team!!!
