Local moving is typically considered any move that is conducted within a 40 mile radius from the pick up location. Rates for local moving are charged by the hour. The price per hour is defined by how many movers you will need to conduct your move plus flat fees for the truck and travel costs. Keep It Moving charges for a 2 hour minimum plus a 1 hour trip charge on all local moves. We provide this service to residential and commercial clients.
Intrastate moves and Interstate moves are identical whem it comes to pricing . The difference is Intrastate moving is conducted within the same state and Interstate moves are considerd any move that involves crossing state lines. Moves of these natures are charged by the weight of your shipment plus truck and travel costs associated with the move. Companies are required by law to weigh their vehicle prior to loading then again once your shipment is loaded onto the truck. Such weighings are conducted by “Certified Weigh Masters” ordained by each state. Although it is not mandatory, clients are often urged to accompany your movers during both weighings to ensure the accuracy of the cost of your move. Companies are required to furnish these weigh tickets from Weigh Masters usually no more than 20-30 miles from the pick up location. COmpanies get your price by subtracting the heavy weight minus your light weight to your hauling costs. There maybe other costs for additional services ordered during your move as well.
Some clients may not need to hire a company to conduct the entire move. There are alot more cases now-a-days where clients will rent their own truck, drive their own truck, but will only need movers during the loading or unloading process. There are other instances where clients may move from one unit in an apartment building to another unit within the same building and use our services for a few extra hands. These type moves are considered labor only moves.
