How Fuel Prices Can Affect Your Move

How Fuel Prices Can Affect Your Move

If there is one positive from all the craziness lately is the drop in gas prices. Of course, there is not a person out there that hasn’t been affected by fuel costs. The cost of fuel affects the daily commute, heating your home, and even groceries.  Indirectly, the cost of fuel can even affect the cost of your relocation since it affects many moving companies directly.

Fuel Prices Affect Moving

Across the board, moving companies are feeling the pinch since fuel costs are incorporated into their daily operations.  Movers must pay for plenty of fuel. Traveling back and forth for in-home estimates and the packing up, unloading, and transport of moving trucks are just some examples.  Overall, the moving industry has a pretty small profit margin and higher fuel costs cut into that profit even more.

Fuel prices can really affect long-distance moves. Any move that is longer than 40 miles one way or out of state can be classified as a long-distance move.  Fuel is a big consideration when receiving a long-distance quote.

For a long-distance move, the quote is not based on actual items but more on the actual weight of the move. For the best and most accurate quote, try to fill out the form located here, to the best of your ability.  Even if you are not moving out of state but are still moving over 40 miles you will need to fill out the long-distance form. The form will walk you from room to room asking about items in each room.

Finally, in these tough times, we here at Men on the Move are here for you. Currently, we are operating and follow all safety precautions set by the CDC. By booking your move today you can save some while fuel prices are low.

Benefits Of Moving During The Fall

Moving During The Fall

If you are planning on moving, move in the Fall. Fall if the best time to move for many reasons.  You can enjoy your entire Summer at your house before having to worry about packing and moving to your next one. Not to mention, the many other benefits to booking your move in the Fall season. 

Advantages to Moving During The Fall

  • Easier to book your move. Summer is the busiest season to move in because of families moving when kids are off school, warm weather, et cetera. When Fall comes, moving companies have more spots open in their schedule to move you!
  • Beat the holidays. One of the best reasons to move during the Fall is settling into your new home before Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. With the worry of packing and moving out of the way, you can celebrate your holidays in peace!
  • Cooler Temperatures. No one likes to move during heat waves or snowstorms. Michigan Fall’s are relatively mild compared to the sweltering Summers and frigid Winters.
  • Easier home-buying experience. The peak home-selling season ends at the end of Summer. So, if you still have to buy a house in the Fall, the prices will decrease to appeal to more buyers. You might get a better price than what you originally planned for!
