The main option is to pay for services based on hourly moving rates for which we would be happy to provide you with a moving estimate.
The alternative is to ask for a moving quote, otherwise known as a "flat rate". A quote often serves well in providing peace of mind since you know in advance what your move will cost. They are often required when a move is being subsidized by the government or by an employer. However, when movers quote a job, they take into account several factors. These include the cost of visiting the client to conduct a thorough inventory of all items to be moved and taking into consideration any possible delays or unexpected circumstances that could arise during the move.
For this reason, quoted rates will generally be set 15-25% higher than the estimated cost of moves.
Local moving services - how is the customer charged?
Movers charge for labor, moving truck usage, travel time and moving/packing materials used for the move. All of these charges must be filed with the local state agency (D.O.T. - Department of Transportation) and the moving company is not allowed to charge more or less than the filed rates (tariff).
This is the charge for packing materials - boxes, crates, bubble wrap, tape, packing paper, moving blankets or any state-of-the-art moving equipment provided by the moving company before or during the moving process.
The relocation of oversized items such as pianos and large-screen televisions will usually be subject to surcharges, especially where stairs are involved.
Expect that the crew may stop for the occasional short break. After all, they are only human. Should the crew break for any extended period (ie. for lunch or dinner), this time will be deducted from the customers bill.
