Moving is not an exact science and there are a number of factors that can affect the cost of your move, such as;
- Access, can a truck fit down your driveway? are there long path ways or stairs to negotiate?
- Is your house single story? double or even four stories?
- do you have unusually heavy or large items that could take up valuable truck space?
- Are you planning your move around property settlements?

We have also developed a free E-book full of handy hints and tips as seen through a lighthearted and humorous recount of a furniture movers experience, an exert from the book:
You have more stuff than you realize: We get used to having our stuff around us and lose sight of the amount until we have to move, A general rule of thumb I have developed over the years is the 10/1 rule That is in general when estimating how big a truck is needed to shift a house I apply 1bedroom= 10 cubic meters, the exception are well organized 3 bedrooms that can quite often beloaded quite well into a 25 cubic meter truck but with not so well packed or larger 3-5 bedrooms this rule normally always holds true.Tip: shed as much weight as you can before you move, get a skip or trailer to the tip, give away or sell any non seasonal items you haven’t used in six months or more.
