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.
