HOW DO YOU COME UP WITH QUOTES?
The cost of a home removal is calculated by calculating loading time, unloading time and time traveling to the destination. As well as this how many porters it will take to clear the property in the given time frame. Long distances add considerably to the price of a removal; because of high fuel prices (removal vehicles only managing around 10-20 miles to the gallon), labour costs as wages still have to be paid even though the porters are not working, just traveling and enjoying the view. Restrictions on the hours a driver can drive for also come into play. Night out money (subsistence), parking costs and wear and tear on a vehicle have to be included as well. If you do have a long distance to move have a cup of tea ready for your movers when they arrive, after all they have just spent the night sleeping in the van protecting your belongings.
