Question 1: You’ve scheduled your order, but what does a “pickup window” mean?

Pickup window is the designated time our movers will arrive at the pickup location. They can arrive at the pickup location ANY TIME in between the beginning of the 4-hour window, to the end of the 4-hour window. Our flexible 4-hour windows come with a 30 minute pre-call from our movers when they’re en route.

Question 2: How many miles does the standard service include?

  • The standard service price includes all mileage up to 25 miles.
  • 25- 50 miles is an additional $39.
  • 51-75 miles is an additional $89.
  • Above 75 miles –  Give us a call for a custom quote!

Question 3: Am I allowed to add items to my order?

Absolutely! There are two different ways you can add items to an order. The first way is to call us and we can add items to your order before your scheduled delivery. The second way is once the movers are on site, they can use our state of the art mobile application to add items immediately!  We require all items that are added or subtracted from your order to be signed for so you aren’t getting charged extra without your consent!

Question 4: How much does it cost?

    • Our pricing is simple and flat rate! Cost is determined by the number of items being moved.
    • We have two levels of service:
      1. Inside Service: begins at $169 for the first item
        • Picking up and delivering to an indoor location, such as inside your home or office building.
      2. Outside Service: begins at $99 for the first item
        • Outdoor locations such as curbside, garage, or loading dock. BOTH pickup and delivery must be outside for the outside rate to apply.

Question 5: What’s included with that cost? Rates include the delivery vehicle, labor of a 2-man team, fuel/mileage, basic wrapping, and up to 1 flight of stairs at both the pickup and delivery locations. Standard pricing is valid for orders completed within our service area, booked 2 days in advance, and including single items weighing 250 pounds or less. If your item is heavier than 250 pounds or you need service outside of our service area, please contact us for a custom quote.
