It is better to ask the moving company how much would they charge you for the moving services that you are interested in. A genuine moving company would provide you with a fair and crystal clear moving estimate. The moving estimate would include the fee structure divided into various components, such as the cost of moving boxes and supplies, cost of packing, loading, cost of moving van, unloading, etc. You can clearly understand how much the moving company is charging you for the varied services being offered by them.
