Local or Long Distance Moving, what’s the difference?

Posted by Admin on March 13, 2019


Local or Long Distance Moving.

What’s the difference?:

Local Moves are often priced by the hour.

1. An inventory is usually done, either in person – over the phone or in e-mail. This process is crucial for the next step.

2. Once an inventory is obtained, the estimator will use that information to provide a quote.

3. Quotes are heavily based on the accuracy of the estimate, the more accurate the inventory, the more accurate your estimate!

4. This is why honest billing is important. Burly Boyz Moving will only bill exactly what was worked, with quarterly billing increments – this ensures if they finish sooner than your estimate, you’re going to pay less!

5. Our most popular move team are two movers and the truck. There is a certain threshold where 3, or even 4 movers (while more hourly) will save you money as they are estimated to finish sooner on larger loads.

6. Travel time is a factor, and a small fuel surcharge. This is because our movers are hourly workers, essentially you are simply paying for their time.

7. At the end of the day, you’re only billed exactly what was worked. We try our hardest to provide an estimate on the inventory disclosed. If the inventory is inaccurate, chances are the estimate will be inaccurate as well.

8. A properly trained estimator should guide you through this process and give you peace of mind. Give us a call any time if you have any questions in regards to anything related to the moving industry.


Long Distance Moves are priced per pound.

1. An inventory is usually done, either in person – over the phone or in e-mail. This process is crucial for the next step.

2. Once an inventory is obtained, the estimator will use that information to assess your weight, thus being able to provide an estimate.

3. Quotes are heavily based on the accuracy of the inventory disclosed during the estimation process, the more accurate the inventory, the more accurate your estimate!

4. This is why per-pound billing is important. Burly Boyz Moving will only bill to the exact weight, this ensures at the end of the day – you’re only paying for exactly what was moved!

5. You should often expect to pay a small range (a little bit more or less) than estimated, as pinpointing an exact weight can be difficult for anybody.

6. Burly Boyz Moving has no hidden fees. Everything is included in our rates and disclosed to you during the estimation process. Scale fees, labour, protection of your belongings and disassembly are always included in the estimates given.

7. At the end of the day, we bill according to the scale weight. This ensures you’re only ever going to pay for exactly what was moved, with no hidden fees or tacked on surcharges.

8. A properly trained estimator should guide you through this process and give you peace of mind. Give us a call any time if you have any questions in regards to anything related to the moving industry.

 

That’s all for now. Remember, for any inquiries about a move during the winter or any other time - give us a call. We provide free consulting services for each move.
