House movers are the company that you hire to remove your house to another house. But not all house movers are created the same. They come as an independent or one van moving company for a smaller or a local move. This type of move does not take as long as a move where you are moved to a distant city. A local mover may have smaller equipment and not charge as much as a larger, national house movers company. They may not have the same mileage rates or any mileage rates at all but may offer a lump sum price for the move. If they have underestimated the amount of goods to be moved and the amount of time it will take, you cannot be charged more for the move.
A larger or national moving company will generally charge you by both the miles to be driven and the weight and or bulk of the items to be moved. If you have items such as a spa or other large bulky item that takes up space but has little weight you may get an estimate that has a flat bulky article charge attached to it. Generally a larger moving company will not give you a flat rate to move you because they know that they may have unexpected conditions during the move that may change their price. This is especially true if it is a longer distance move that will not be completed in one or two days. But all movers try their best to give you the correct estimate in the beginning so you know what your move will ultimately cost you.
Using a company to move you makes a lot of sense because they already have the equipment to move your things in an efficient manner. They have the dollies, the ramps, and the furniture blankets to wrap the appliances in so they dont get scuffed or banged. This also applies to a large TV or other electronic device. If you are moving yourself you would have to borrow, buy or rent these things someplace.
Of course there is also the one man and a small van that can move your things when you dont have an entire household to move. You would use such a mover if you were moving out of your college dorm for instance and you only had some boxes, a bed and some furniture. This would be advantageous price wise.
However you ultimately choose you can make sure the move goes easier if you make sure all appliances are ready to move. Drain the washing machine hoses. Empty the refrigerator and freezer chest. Make sure any lose parts are stabilized so they dont come off and get lost. Anything you can do before the movers arrive to make the move easier will benefit both parties. This doesnt mean you have to haul about boxes, but the more things done in preparation for their arrival becomes a much faster and easier move for all involved.
