Moving-S provides services from the client’s perspective. Especially, the flexibility of moving plans to customer’s request is outstandingly higher than any other moving companies.
Plus, moving rates are really reasonable. This mover is willing to respond to your negotiation.
MovingS’s quote is relatively cheap compared to other moving companies. The following table is about the rough standard prices by the number of users. These are the start (minimum) moving price roughly quoted by Moving S. Depending on the size of the furniture, the number of boxes, transportation distance, moving charge will more or less fluctuate.
The following is the example of realistic quotes which is average values calculated with the moving cost of the users who provided information on the moving rate sites. This time, I surveyed information of the users from the internet, who moved wihin 50 km. All I was able to understand from the result is that the their moving charges tend to get close to average moving prices in proportion to using optional services and trasporting long distance.
|Normal Season ( From May to February)||42,500 yen||63,500 yen||84,500 yen|
|Busy Season (March, April)||68,500 yen||93,500 yen||149,500 yen|
The following table is the average market prices of moving charges in Japan surveyed by “Hikkoshi Zamurai”. You just look at the columns in pink. Its price range is pretty much equivalent to the realistic quotes which I surveyed. After all, when a customer requests a “usual” moving service by adding some optional services and leaving any of miscellaneous jobs to the mover, the moving charge become closely the average prices of the moving industry.
|Single ( a few moving boxes)||Couple (many moving boxes)||Family of two||Family of three||Family of four||Family of more than five|
|Overall average||37,000 yen||50,000 yen||78,000 yen||100,000 yen||108,000 yen||110,000 yen|
|~15 km||25,650 yen||35,000 yen||65,000 yen||76,000 yen||91,350 yen|
|~50 km||31,000 yen||43,000 yen||70,000 yen||111,500 yen||116,000 yen|
|~200 km||47,260 yen||62,350 yen||97,500 yen||150,500 yen||160,000 yen||190,000 yen|
|~500 km||58,000 yen||85,000 yen||180,000 yen||205,000 yen||255,500 yen||345,000 yen||More than 500 km||80,000 yen||105,000 yen||200,000 yen||300,000 yen||350,000 yen||357,500 yen|
The moving quotes which make you think “cheap” only subdivided service prices. Usually, the major moving companies sell moving service as an all-in-one without preparing any optional services. However, cheap moving companies have rich subdivided optional services whose prices are set individually with basic moving service.
The feature of Moving S
The moving S has good credibility from the customer steadily and acquires the certification of “safe mover” from Japan National Truck Association.
Moving-S provides some optional moving services for free, which other companies provide for a fee. For example, cardboard boxes are free. You don’t need to get your clothes out of your closet. Staff will carry and place laundry machine and other large home electric appliances in installation sites.
During moving work, you may find old furniture and home electronic appliances which you want to discard. Moving-S will buy second-hand furniture and discard your unnecessary electronic appliances for free. It also rates things you want to sell. If you take advantage of these free services, you can somehow save the moving cost less than the first quoted rate.
If you make a contract by way of Moving-S’s homepage, the moving charge becomes 10 percent off.
