Hourly vs Flat Rate

If you are searching for a moving company, chances are you have found a few companies and are hoping to compare moving quotes. When you call a moving company, they will either provide you with an hourly quote or a flat rate for your entire move. Which will work better for you? If you are on a budget, flat rate certainly has an appeal. However, sometimes flat rate can be deceiving.  Ask about hidden fees – a lot of moving companies have them. Does the quoted price change the price if your inventory changes? We have heard stories of moving companies holding people’s possessions hostage until they paid extra or demanding tips upfront before they start the move. Know your movers.

You Get What You Pay For

Beware of companies that give you moving quotes that seem too good to be true. Always make sure to read moving company reviews. Some companies give you a cheap quote upfront and add lots of charges after you’ve already hired them. Or they refuse to work after a certain amount of time. Cheap labor might end up costing you a lot of money or stress later. Damages to your belongings, rude customer service or even damages to your building are never good. That’s why you want to make sure you’re investing your money wisely.

Why We Charge Hourly

We have two decades of moving experience in NYC and across the country. We charge hourly because we feel it is an honest pricing model. There are no surprises or hidden charges. Do you have more stuff than you originally thought? No Problem! The movers will stay until the job is done. There is no last minute stressing out or haggling on the spot with the price. The rates are set. And there is no need to worry about the movers doing their job slowly – they are paid fairly and usually have other jobs to go to, so they are eager to help you move as fast as possible. We also find that charging by the hour motivates our customers to be prepared and ready for the movers when they arrive.
