differently for this service.
The aspects to be considered for making the total cost of moving your

Method of Payment
The methods of payment also differ from companies to companies. Some
of the companies do not take any advance while others do take.
Typically 10% to 25% of the entire cost is taken as advance.
Rest of the amount can be deposited at the delivery time.
Any verbal promise can not be relied upon so easily. You must get
written agreement incorporating some very important clauses like
one which waives the the cancellation fee in case the auto mover
doesn't pickup your vehicle within fixed number of days of agreed
pickup date. Though you can not be given a guaranteed delivery date,
you should ask for a tentative one. Before leaving your car with
auto movers you should get an car inspection report saying
everything about its original condition.
Get you car insured
Your auto moving company would insure your car against any theft and
damage. Feel free to ask for a copy of insurance coverage. Remember
you are not supposed to leave any article inside the car as
it won't be insured by the auto moving companies. Make sure that
your home insurance policy covers these articles for damages.
Inspect your car on delivery
Though most of the auto movers deliver the vehicle very safely, you
are required to be watchful. You must inspect your car very
minutely when you get its delivery at the destination. Examine its
status with respect to the origin inspection report you had received
at the origin. If you find anything otherwise make a note of it and
get the driver's signature.
