Midland Van Lines charges for their moving services based on the space items occupy in the truck. This is known as volume-based pricing and is commonly used in the moving industry.

They will provide you with an estimate based on the size of your home, the number of rooms, and the items you need to move. The team will then determine the amount of space required in the truck to transport your belongings safely and efficiently.

This pricing model ensures that you only pay for the space you need rather than a fixed price that may not accurately reflect the size of your move. It also allows for more flexibility in pricing, as the cost will vary depending on the specific needs of your move.

The cost of your move depends on several factors, including the following:

Distance

Distance is an important factor when calculating the cost of a move. The farther the distance between your current and new location, the more fuel, time, and labor will be required to complete the move.

This increased cost can also affect other aspects of your move, such as the number of movers needed, the size and type of truck required, and the overall logistics of the move.

How much stuff you have

The more items you have, the larger the truck and the more movers will be required to manage your belongings. This increase in resources and labor will, in turn, increase the cost of your move.

Additionally, larger or more valuable items may require special handling or packing, which can also add to the cost of the move.

Therefore, the amount of stuff you have is a crucial consideration when calculating the cost of a move and should be factored into any moving quote or estimate.

Additional moving services

When planning your move, remember that the cost may be affected by any additional services you choose to include. Moving companies may offer services such as packing, disassembling, and reassembling furniture, or transporting specialty items like pianos.

If you decide to use packing services, it’s important to note that there may be additional charges for moving supplies such as cardboard boxes, plastic bins, bubble wrap, packing paper, stretch wrap, felt pads, and mattress bags.

Access fees

The physical labor required for a move is a crucial factor that affects the cost. This depends on various elements, such as the floor level of your residence, the distance between your door and the moving truck, and the availability of elevators.

When these factors require more physical effort, such as roping methods to move large or bulky items, the cost typically increases accordingly.

How early you have booked

Booking early for a move can potentially affect the cost in two ways. First, some moving companies may offer early booking discounts or special rates for customers who book their move several months in advance. These discounts can help reduce the overall cost of the move.

Second, booking sooner can also help secure your preferred moving date. If you wait until closer to your desired moving date, the moving company may already be fully booked or have limited availability, either of which may result in higher rates.

Additionally, last-minute bookings may require more resources and manpower from the moving company, leading to increased customer costs. Therefore, early booking can help you secure a more affordable rate and ensure a smoother, stress-free move.

Midland Van Lines understands that sometimes plans change unexpectedly. That’s why they offer a flexible 7-day cancellation policy for your peace of mind.

If, for any reason, you need to cancel your move, you can do so up to 7 days before your scheduled moving date, and they won’t charge you a cancellation fee.

When protecting your items during a move, the approach can vary depending on what type of item it is and what specific requirements it may have.

In any case, you can rest assured that Midland Van Lines always prioritizes the safety of your belongings and uses the latest techniques and highest quality materials to ensure they arrive at your destination in the same condition they were before the move.

Preparing for a move can be overwhelming, but you can make it a smooth process with a little organization and planning.
