Estimates in the moving industry are made by either weight or by cubic feet.
In weight-based estimates, the moving company will provide an estimate as to the potential overall weight of the entire shipment on the move date. The customer will be required to pay the bill based on the overall previously agreed price per pound.

Continental Van Lines Contact:Moving companies often offer services that are less involved and expensive than full service moving. Some companies derive most of their income from truck and equipment services, other companies provide drivers and delivery service simply letting the customer perform the actual packing. Some companies provide movers instead of trucks or equipment to handle the skilled and physical aspect of moving. Hiring movers for this purpose is referred to as moving labor or moving labor services.

These large containers, often up to 53' feet in length, are driven by professionals to the new location. The renters of the trailer or truck often sell or lease accessories such as furniture blankets, tie down straps, packing material, dollies and ramps.
