Saskatchewan moving companies like Jay’s use a tested method to estimate the weight of your goods. The comprehensive system we use to estimate moving weight results in an accurate estimate of your moving cost.
Estimating your moving weight is complex. Jay’s, your Saskatchewan moving company, uses a detailed spreadsheet to determine the weight of your shipment. We are happy to provide this to you so you can make a preliminary assessment, but advise that it’s tricky to arrive at an accurate estimate. Our consultants have the training and experience required to find your correct moving weight.
Getting estimates from multiple Saskatchewan moving companies is a good plan, but often people are surprised by the variation in prices. Many times this is due to differences in the moving weight estimate. Make sure to ask for a copy of the sheet used to calculate the weight of your shipment so you can see exactly which items are included.
Jay’s can provide a copy of our moving weight estimate with our moving estimates.
Some people prefer to get a weight estimate over the phone, if you use this method be sure to tell the moving consultant about everything that needs to be moved in order to get an accurate estimate.
Scheduling an in-home survey allows the consultant to see exactly what you have as well as providing an opportunity for us to assess any difficulties like:
- Elevators, and
- Narrow spaces.
During the survey it’s important that you clearly state which items need to be moved and which don’t.
An accurate weight estimate is crucial because your moving cost is dependent upon:
- The weight of your shipment, and
- The distance from origin to destination.
The final charges are based on the actual scaled weight of your shipment. The truck is weighed before and after loading and the difference is your moving weight. At Jay’s, your Saskatchewan moving company, we are so certain of the accuracy of our estimate that we guarantee that your cost will be within 10% of your estimate! Ask us about it at 1(877) 715-7421!
