Travel Time covers the time it takes our moving truck to get from our office to your location, and then to get back after the move is completed. For local Victoria moves travel time is calculated in 15 min increments for local moves.
There are a few ways to save money, but they all come down to preparation. Making sure that you are well packed will save you time. If there is an elevator in your building, talk to the building manager about having it reserved for your move.
If you are flexible on the date of your move, it might be possible to bundle a long distance move with others to save money. Try asking about current specials, or discounts for seniors. Not everyone offers these, but it never hurts to ask.
The general rule of thumb is that anything over a 2 bedroom should have 3 men. If there are lots of stairs to climb, or you have something large like a piano, the extra man will save you money and time.
Yes. Many smaller homes (2 bedrooms or less) can be given a moving estimate over the phone. If it is more than 2 bedrooms, or you are moving long distance, or need to be packed as well, we will arrange an in home estimate for you.
Listed below are the average times:
1 bedroom - 2 to 4 hours +
2 bedrooms - 4 to 6 hours +
3 bedrooms - 6 to 8 hours +
4 bedrooms - 9 to 10 hours +
5 bedrooms - 10 hours +
These estimates vary depending on how many men used for the move. We charge travel time in 15 min increments for local moves, each way, to and from your home.
Our moves are calculated by the quarter hour.
