The cost for movers will depend on the exact services needed. You may need just a moving service such as unloading/loading help, or maybe you have a more comprehensive project that needs more time and manpower. For example, it will cost more if the movers need to pack all the boxes rather then having all the boxes packed beforehand.
Some of the main factors of moving costs with Big Boy Movers would be.
- Truck & travel fee—This includes truck, gas, mileage, insurance and time picking up and returning the truck and/or supplies. Big Boy Movers also includes blankets, tie-down straps, moving pads, and dollies that we will use and take back on the same day.
- Hourly rate—There is a 2 hour minimum rate on all services. If the job will take longer than that, we will charge in 15 minute increments. The time clock starts running when the movers start working at the pickup location and ends when the movers complete their work at the drop-off location and you sign off on the paperwork.
- Moving supplies
- Junk removal service charges
- Heavy Item charges
Keep in mind, your final price may differ from an estimate due to factors such as elevators, stairs, excessive additional items added on moving day, etc.
