How Removal Companies go about calculating the cost of your Furniture Removal?

Removal Companies calculate their prices using a number of factors:

  • Inventory of Goods to be relocated
  • Accessibility at Pick Up & Delivery Addresses
  • Moving Date - Property transfers and rentals mostly happen at the end of the month

  • Distance    - The time the truck and team take to get to the pick up address does have an influence  

Inventory of Goods to be Relocated

To be able to get an exact quote, you need to provide the removal company with as much detail as possible. It is essential to have an inventory of what needs to be moved.

The inventory will give the Furniture Movers an understanding on the following factors:

  • How many staff they need for the move
  • What size truck is required 
  • How long it will take to load & off - load 

How to Create an Accurate Inventory 

The above factors are significant influences and it is important that you provide your removal company an accurate inventory that will help provide an accurate removal quotation.  We at Cape Furniture Removals provide various furniture inventory options that will help and remind you of every detail that enables you to populate an inventory easily:

An Accurate Furniture Inventory ensures the following:

  • Your furniture Removal Company can make a fair assessment  and provide you an accurate removal quotation
  • Insurance - Most Furniture Removal Companies provide automatic Goods in Transit insurance. In the event of an unlikely event that there is an incident then your inventory will be on record to help insurance claim
  • Organisational - moving is noted as one of the most stressful events to happen to you. The inventory will help you have peace of mind and help as a checklist for you.    

Address Accessibility is extremely important 

A large proportion of residential homes are being built in a complex environment and which many have height and weight restrictions. Flats, Apartments & Offices etc which are very relevant factors as it does have an influence on how long the move will take. Stairs, lifts and long walks due to poor truck access adds onto the length of time and amount of manpower your removal company will need to allocate to your move.

To put it into context - Your removal company essentially needs to understand how much it costs per hour to have a truck and team doing your move.   

Moving Date

Property transfers and rental agreements all happen at the end of the month and we advise you to book early to secure your booking. This leaves the removal company industry with extra capacity in the middle month with many furniture removal companies making providing better rates within this period. A subdued period for property transfers forces removal companies to provide competitive pricing options for clients just to ensure they are able to keep themselves busy. This quite period provides an opportunity for the Furniture Removal Companies to train their staff and ensure their trucks are maintained so they are ready for the congested & busy end month period. Demand starts to increase from the 25th on any given month and remains extremely busy until the 3rd of the ensuing month.

Removal Distance

We all want businesses to make their money and it's no different with removal companies. Its very important that the furniture removal companies cost their moves properly to ensure that they stay in business and provide an effective service with proper truck maintenance and staff training. Calculating the removal distance can sometimes be underrated by removal companies but yet it's such an important provision that needs to be incorporated into a removal quotation. in this way furniture moving companies can allocate the relative resources to maintaining their trucks.

It's essential that a removal company understands how much it costs them per kilometer to run the truck as well as what are the total overheads for the truck per day and even per hour with a driver and team. It is fair practice for a removal company to also account for the cost of time and truck costs from leaving the depot to their 1st pickup address. If it isn't done and that truck is used 20 times a month then that accumulative cost can be dangerous under in the long term.
