Why moving companies should send professional invoices

Illustration of invoice being sent

Moving is a specialized skill, which requires hard, physical labor, as well as the know-how to move everything from furniture to kitchen equipment safely and securely. You need an invoice that clearly details your hard work, as well as all the associated costs for special packing requirements, long-distance travel, and other expenses.

On top of that, no two moving jobs are ever alike – so your invoice needs to be flexible enough for all of your customers, while being clear and understandable so they know exactly what they are paying for.

Moving also requires great customer service, as your customers are entrusting their worldly possessions to you. Make sure it is professional and well-designed so it reflects on the high quality of work you provide.

How to fill out your moving company invoice

Once you've downloaded your free invoice template, you'll need to customize it to fit your specific business. Here are the 10 key things to include on your invoice:

  1. Title and Description: Name the project and briefly describe what type of work your client is being invoiced for.
  2. Company Details: Add your company name, address, phone number, and logo to the top-right corner.
  3. Customer Details: Under "Bill To", add your customer's name, address, and contact information.
  4. Invoice Number: Include a unique invoice number to help you track down this invoice in the future. You can format this based on sequence and customer. For example, if you're sending your very first customer their first invoice,  the invoice number could be 001-001.
  5. Dates: Include the date when your invoice has been issued and the date when payment is due.
  6. Line Item: Add individual line items for each unique good or service you provided. For each line item, include a brief description, quantity, individual unit price, and total price.
  7. Subtotal: Add up the subtotal of your goods or services, before tax has been applied.
  8. Tax: Indicate the tax rate applied to the subtotal. This is legally required to provide on invoices, and your rate may differ depending on where you run your business.
  9. Total: Outline the total amount due from the customer, after tax.
  10. Notes: Include any additional info your customer should know, including terms of service and payment terms (for example, payments are due 30 days after the invoice has been issued).

When is the right time to send an invoice to your moving company customers?

Moving is a big job that could take an afternoon, or a week. Many moving companies ask for a percentage of the cost up front, with the remainder when the move is completed, especially if it is a long-distance haul and includes additional services such as packing and setting up at the destination.

If it’s a smaller job, some moving companies have the customer sign an estimate and then ask for payment upon completion.
