Just remember that, in addition to standard moving fees, you can accumulate additional charges if you want specialized services. No, most moving companies won't charge sales tax on the cost of their moves. There are no taxes on services such as packaging, loading and transportation. That said, moving companies will likely charge sales tax on any packaging material (such as boxes and adhesive tape).
There are hidden fees, such as assembling furniture and tipping moving companies during the move. According to Cattano, if you move to a building that has stairs but not an elevator, you might be stuck paying a fee for the stairs. Many moving companies charge extra money if they have to carry your items up the stairs instead of just putting them in an elevator.
