How is the customer charged?
Local Moves = Moving/labor time + Packing Supplies
Long Distance (up to 50 miles) = Moving time + Packing Supplies + fuel + tolls
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.
The relocation of oversized items such as pianos and large-screen televisions will usually be subject to surcharges, especially where stairs are involved.
Sometimes the contents of the home must be stored in the truck overnight. This occurs in cases where the closing contracts on a new home are delayed or often in long distance relocations where the crew loads the truck one day and can't unload at the new location until the following day. In such cases, an overnight storage fee of $100 will be charged. Payment for services rendered is usually requested in the form of cash. Exceptions to this rule include quoted jobs being billed to government departments or contracted / ongoing services provided to corporate clients.
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.
