This is an interesting moving question. Lots of moving companies out there in the Greater Toronto Area (and across the country) will charge you by the hour.

A big truck and a few strong guys show up and start emptying your home. You’ve carefully boxed up your valuables, and done your best to be ready for them. You’re not entirely sure how long your move will take – “4 bedroom homes usually take most of the day” the guy on the phone told you. But the difference between 6, 10 and 12 hours has a big effect on the check you write at the end of the day. This not knowing adds to your moving day stress, which is the last thing you need. If your move takes less time than expected, great! You save a few bucks. But how do you know you’re getting your money’s worth? Are the movers going to slow to pad their paychecks? Are they in a hurry, at the expense of your possessions?

There’s a better way – The Flat Rate Moving Price. One price for the entire move. This price is determined during our Free Moving Consultation, and takes into consideration everything from the amount of items to be moved, how far your next home is, the estimated time your move will take, and the equipment and staff we will bring on the day of. You’ll know how much to budget for your move, and then you can relax. We take as long as is needed to safely and securely move you to your new home.

Things that won’t cost you extra on the day of your move:

  • Extra moving staff for your big move, to reduce fatigue, potential breakage, and to get you settled quicker
  • A bigger truck, or multiple smaller trailers to better fit in your driveway
  • Traffic on the way to your new home
  • A 2 Day Move – highly recommended for bigger moves
  • An extra hour unloading
  • Extra careful handling of your items

That sure sounds like a better way to move, doesn’t it? We think it’s the only way!
