Moving can be a very stressful time, and part of that stress comes from how much it costs to successfully move from one place to another. When it comes to moving services, one of the best choices you can make is choosing a flat fee moving service. Flat fee moving is preferable to other options because it offers several important benefits in areas where other moving services fail.
No Surprises, Ever
One of the most important benefits of flat fee moving is that there won’t be any surprises on your bill. Flat fee moving is exactly how it sounds—we determine what you need, and we charge you a flat, reasonable fee for your entire move. What you are quoted is what you will pay, no matter what happens during your move. No amount of hiccups, traffic jams, or other moving delays or issues will ever raise the price you are quoted when you choose flat fee moving services.
Flat fee moving doesn’t start and stop at small items that can easily be packed into boxes. There are several other available services that are included in your flat fee quote. This includes the moving of some valuable and fragile items, such as televisions, computers, paintings, sculptures, lamps, and mirrors. It also includes having your furniture wrapped and moved, such as couches, chairs, and tables. And, of course, we will always treat your move with the care it deserves. We go the extra mile to make sure your doors, walls, and floors are all well-protected from dents, scratches, scuffs, and other types of damage.
Disadvantages of Other Services
Many moving companies still use hourly or weight-based services, but these services simply don’t offer the benefits that flat fee moving does.
Hourly moving services run the risk of being dragged out in order to make the company more money, which is a common predatory practice. It’s also stressful to use because any initial quote you are given isn’t likely to be accurate, since they’ll have a difficult time determining how long it will take their crew to handle the process. It’s also all-too-common for companies to send smaller teams in order to make the job take longer and force you to pay a much higher bill than you anticipated. Other issues, such as traffic jams and tolls, will also show up on your bill as extra time and money spent on your move that you will have to pay on top of all of your other fees.
Weight-based services are even more archaic and untrustworthy. There is no way for a company that is quickly looking over your home inventory to determine how much all of your belongings will weigh, which means that any initial quote you receive is likely to be wildly inaccurate. The items will be weighed once they’re all packed into the truck, and at that point, you’re on the hook for however much it costs.
