Most charges for interstate moves are calculated based on the weight of the property being transported or the amount of space (cubic feet) the property occupies on the truck. If the charges are based upon weight, after the goods have been packed and loaded, the truck will be weighed to determine the line-haul charges. Only after the truck and property has been weighed can the charges be determined. Since estimates are not guaranteed, the final charges could be higher or lower than the estimate.  It is standard practice for a moving company to offer extra services at an additional charge. Examples of extra services include the use of stairs, shuttle, long carry, elevator, packing and labor, storage, appliance services, etc.
