Payment must be given to the movers at the end of the job according to your estimated hours (unless the move has been booked same day or next day, see below for details). There are no refunds if the job does not take as long as it was estimated to take because we have set aside that time specifically for you.
If the move takes longer than what was estimated, we will continue until the job is done at an hourly rate, billing by 15-minute increments for the time that goes over. (This may be dependent on our schedule if our movers can stay to help).
Customer will be charged time and a half if we are requested to work outside of our movers' normal business hours: Monday-Saturday 7am to 10pm.

Reschedules are subject to date and time availability. There are no fees for rescheduling as long as you contact us before 3pm on the day before your move. After 3pm on the day before your move or if the mover(s) are on their way to the job when we are notified, there will be a $35 charge per mover to cover their time. Please let us know as soon as possible if you need to reschedule. We are more than happy to work with you.
If you are looking to get service today please contact us by phone to see if we have availability. Same day moves will be charged a $60 fee which will be applied to the total bill. Both same day and next day moves will be required to pay the total cost of the move upfront, and a nonrefundable deposit based on the 2-hour minimum, the number of movers, travel fee, and same day service fee if applicable. We can collect this over the phone at the time of booking.
