Moving weight estimate from Jay's, your Calgary movers

Calgary movers like Jay’s use a proven approach to estimate the weight of your move. We have developed an accurate system for estimating moving weight, resulting in an accurate estimate of your moving cost.

The task of estimating moving weight is not simple. Jay’s Moving Calgary uses a very detailed spreadsheet to estimate the weight of your belongings. We are happy to send this to you if you want to make a preliminary assessment, but without the expertise that our consultants have developed through training and experience it may be difficult for you to arrive at an accurate estimate.

When people get estimates from multiple Calgary moving companies they are often surprised at the variation in prices. Frequently this can be traced to a difference in moving weight estimation. Ask for a copy of the sheet used to calculate the weight of your shipment so that you can see exactly which items have been included.

Jay’s can provide a copy of our moving weight estimate with our moving estimates.

Sometimes weight estimates are done by phone, if you are doing this be sure to tell your moving consultant about everything that needs to be moved to get an accurate estimate.

An in home survey allows your consultant to see first hand what you have as well as giving us the chance to assess any difficulties like:

  • Staircases;
  • Elevators, and
  • Narrow spaces.

It’s important that you clearly state which items need to be moved and which don’t.

An accurate moving weight estimate is critical because the cost of your move 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 goods; we weigh the truck before and after loading and the difference is your moving weight. At Jay’s, your Calgary movers, we are so confident in the accuracy of our estimate that we offer a 10% over guarantee! Ask us about it at (403) 775-6066!
