Moving Contracts

One of the most important things in the season is moving. The cost of moving and its items is a concern for people. We may not pay attention, but moving has costs that do not get much attention. Precisely because moving is different and also spatially different, accurate pricing cannot be had.

For a piece of moving, we must consider the following effective items:

  • The volume of furniture and home appliances
  • moving time and day
  • Number of floors at the origin and destination
  • Distance of truck parking place to home
  • Expensive supplies and items
  • The wage of a moving packing worker
  • Car type according to the number of items
  • Distance from the origin to destination

Each of the above has its own characteristics and items regarding the cost of moving. If we pay enough attention to it, we can control costs.

The volume of furniture and home appliances

The volume of furniture varies with the number of them, this is reflected in the fact that the car park is several floors away from the building. A house that has 50 large items is different from a house that has 100 small items.

In this case, packing the furniture is very important. As much as possible, but the furniture in the product boxes themselves and then in larger boxes, and since the type of packaging is very important, it also has a great effect on loading. Sometimes the way you pack has an impact on the type of car you choose, which also changes the price.

Home furniture is divided into several sections

Small-volume furniture, medium-volume furniture, large-volume furniture.

Small volume items

They make up most of the furniture in the house. They are very large in number and usually take more time to move around. The number of times it takes to collect, travel, and move is enormous. The important thing in transporting this furniture is the arrangement in the truck. These items are carried by one person and do not weigh much.

Medium volume tools

These include furniture such as chairs, four-seater or small tables, honeycombs, small cupboards, folding tables, rugs, and more. These pieces of furniture are of medium weight, sometimes they can be carried by two people, and if they are not arranged properly in the truck, they occupy a large volume.

Large volume items

These pieces of furniture are small in number but require a lot of physical strength to move. Moving them is very sensitive and sometimes costly. In some special cases, the presence of a representative at the place may be required. Some companies have a special force to move some equipment. These devices are large in size and require several people to move (two people up). Such as refrigerators, cupboards, showcases, washing machines, ovens, dishwashers, carpets, etc.

The volume of furniture and appliances is important in determining the truck. This affects the price. For example, the price of a light truck differs from that of a truck. In the following, we have given a full explanation about this case.

Furniture time and day

Usually, the season of the moving house starts from the beginning of summer, and during these days, due to the increase in furniture and the decrease in the number of professionals, the amount increases unintentionally. After the end of the summer season and the reduction of furniture and the abundance of professionals in this type of companies will continue to operate competitively, prices will decrease.

Note: In case of cold weather or frost, moving furniture is difficult at first and causes breakage of some items that are not flexible and can cause damage.

Number of floors at the origin and destination

Floors are one of the issues that affect the price of furniture. Which is both time-consuming and energy-consuming. There are some companies that calculate the cost of the first three hours as normal, but if an hour is added to the time, they receive an additional salary.

Note: The wages of each worker increase with the addition of each class.

Distance of truck parking place to home

Some home appliances, some of which are advanced, require the presence of a dealer at the time of relocation, or they may be relocated in a certain way. In this case, the agency will receive a fee for moving it or attending to move it.

For example side-by-side refrigerators, chandeliers, piano, aquarium in dimensions of one meter and above, special showcase, refrigerator 18 feet and above, cupboard, large sofa, library and heavy sideboard, large glass sideboards (dining table for 6 people and up) devices such as Treadmill, library with a height of more than 1.6 and….

Wage of a home furniture packing worker

Some families use corporate forces to pack their belongings, these companies will do the packing. Self-packaging amounts to amounts that vary depending on the type of equipment and their number.

Car type according to the amount of items

One of the costs of moving furniture is renting a truck. The type of car is selected depending on the amount of equipment. Each car has its own fare. For example, renting a light truck is different from renting a truck. We will explain how to price a car in the next section.

Distance from origin to destination

One of the factors that affect the price is the distance. These cases are divided into several cases.

In small towns, the cost is calculated within the city. Unless it is from one city to another if the destination is in another region but in the same province, the fare is calculated based on the transportation from city to city.

In large cities or regions, the cost is calculated differently (for example, from Zone 1 to Zone 2) or again in kilometers.

If the province is to the province or within the province but with a long-distance, then it is calculated in kilometers.

In the above cases, there may be a need for a bill of lading, which itself has a cost based on the distance and the amount of cargo.

Approximate pricing

Rates and pricing include 7 items:

  • Truck prices
  • For three hours with a small truck, about 330 thousand tomans. Depending on the city where you live
  • For two hours with a small truck (Nissan) about 180 to 200 thousand tomans. Depending on the city where you live
  • Furniture worker wages
  • The wage of a worker transporting home furniture for 3 hours and ground floor to the ground floor is about 85 thousand tomans.
  • The wage of the worker increases for the first classes and above, and for each class of transporting furniture is approximately between 10 to 15 thousand tomans based on the agreement of the parties.
  • If the time lasts more than three hours, the worker’s wage will be increased by about one third of the initial amount (30 thousand Tomans) every hour. In some cases it varies according to the amount and type of furniture.

Cargo insurance

The value of the cargo is one million tomans, the cargo insurance rate is 1500 tomans. To get the price of insurance and bill of lading, you should refer to the carriers.

The cost of transporting heavy equipment

The following items are not counted as home furniture and their cost is calculated separately:

  • Carry side-by-side refrigerator, half-side refrigerator, half-side design refrigerator.
  • Refrigerator 18 feet up
  • Piano

Packaging cost (optional)

Packing to collect furniture is the first step. This step is optional, and the person usually collects and packages their own furniture. But some companies do. The packaging is priced as follows:

Packaging equipment (bubble wrap, cellophane, and glue) + labor cost = cost of packing home furniture.

Some companies also arrange furniture. Which costs about 250 thousand tomans.

Unexpected costs

Expenses are said to occur very rarely. Which are added to the number of costs unintentionally.

Such as the right to stop, traffic, one-way fines, or being in the plan.
