Do moving companies charge customers by weight or by cubic feet?

Hi and thank you for visiting!

The answer to your question will depend on the moving company and the distance of your move. Most local movers will charge you by the hour, so the longer your move takes to complete, the more you will pay. Long distance mover usually charge by the weight of your items and the distance of your move--but some companies may calculate your cost by the amount of cubic feet your goods take up on the truck.

The only way to know is to ask any company that provides you with a quote--be it online, over the phone, or in person. On-site estimates are always the way to get the most accurate quote, and make it easy for you to ask all the necessary questions, such as how the company determines their cost.
