How compute $$ to move household goods v. replace at destination?
Moving WI to AZ. We plan to use commercial interstate movers, which I know compute charges using a combination of:
1)tariff (weight x distance)
2)service fees for a variety of things like disconnections, stairs, baby grand pianos, etc.
I'd like a rule of thumb to help us decide which items it pays to ship, and which it makes more sense to replace once arrived, and would like to know the cost/pound from WI to AZ. (I know this will provide only a guesstimate as to actual charges because we'll have those other "service fees" to deal with as well.)
I'm having trouble getting this info from movers. Can anyone help? Thanks.
