Household Moving Service
Loading: Each of your belongings is handled with great care and caution and loaded in a systematic process. All upholstered furniture is wrapped in Stretch wrap, then blanket wrapped, protecting the furniture from soil and damage.
Transportation: All of our trucks and trailers are equipped with air ride suspension systems to ensure that all of your possessions travel in the safest manner possible. All of our trucks and trailers are operated by Professional Van Operators with vast experience on the road.
Upon arriving at your new residence, we unload the truck. When unloading the truck with your furniture, boxes, and other belongings, we bring each item to the room of your designation. Anything we disassemble for the loading process, we reassemble in the unloading process. Our mission is to go above and beyond to help you moving in, and transform your new residence into your home.
Local moves are done on an hourly rate but the overall cost of moving can differ depending of the size of the move, surrounding conditions, and the complexity of the move.
The way most moving companies determine the size of the moving truck and the number of men needed is by the overall weight and space of the shipment. Relocation Specialist fill out a sheet called a CUBE SHEET. A cube sheet is a table of measurement of household goods which allows the moving company to calculate the total cubic ft. of the shipment. Once cubic ft. is determined, it is multiplied of a factor of 6-8 LBs per square foot, depending on the density of your Box and Furniture.
Estimating your move:
Once we have the total weight of your move, we can then give you a proper estimate. The average mover can load/unload 500 LB’s an hour. So, with an estimated weight of 7,000 LB’s for you move, it would be a safe estimate the labor hours would be about 28 hours total or about 9 hours for a Truck and 3 men (depending on conditions). Another factor to consider is travel time; warehouse to warehouse.
