Getting moving quotes is a great way to start choosing a moving company. Be careful when comparing moving quotes, however, as some may only be estimates
and many do not include all of the extra charges associated with your move.
The known and unknown costs of moving typically include:
- Truck rental
- On average, you may pay an additional $.69 / kilometre
- Petrol – On average, you may pay $1.30 / kilometre*
- Time spent driving a rental truck
- Vehicle transport or additional petrol costs for driving your car separately
At PODS® we are upfront with all your moving costs so there’s no need to worry about extra expenses adding up later. Compare the additional moving costs above to the PODS® solution below.
