There are several considerations involved in pricing a local move. Our local moves are
charged an hourly rate, which includes packing. It is our policy, and procedure, that
everything is wrapped and padded in our professional moving blankets before leaving your
home or apartment. Our rate is based on the number of movers and the number of trucks
that are required for the job, which is typically only one. The rate begins when the crew
arrives at your location and covers the total time of the move: the loading, driving to new
location, and the unloading. Additional stops in between locations are included in the total
moving time – there are no extra charges for multiple stops. In addition to the hourly rate,
there is a one-time fee called a travel charge. This charge covers the movers' costs for
traveling from their facilities to your location, and back to their office once the move is
complete. This charge is at the same rate as the hourly fee, and totals half an hour to an
hour's charge.
