How we calculate your flat rate fee?

Our flat rate fee is transparent with no surprises

Flat rates. No hidden fees. No sneaky surprises.

We mean it.

Once you know, you know. Your price will be locked in before your move day for our all-inclusive services and will not change even when life has funny ways. Costs such as road tolls and fuel are pre-calculated into the price and will not shift after we shake hands.

We calculate our flat rate fee with a simple algorithm:

The volume of your items + mileage of your move + special requests & moving complexities = Our competitive flat rate fee.

What makes a flat rate fee so much better?

Hourly, weight-based and distance-based fees inherently come with uncertainty with traffic, weather, unforeseen setbacks and underestimated calculations.

With a flat-rate fee, you know what you are going in to on the day of your move and how much it is going to cost. There are no surprises or additional fees, and the unexpected is expected and accounted for.

Moving is expensive. We’ve got competitive prices that won’t change on the day of your move, and also a neighborly collection of included services that will make you feel oh-so-well taken care of.

A long-distance move flat rate is still guaranteed.

A long-distance flat rate fee is much the same as a local flat rate, you can just expect the mileage to make up more of your overall cost.

Again, we calculate this ahead of time, so surprises on the road will not leave you digging for change at the end of the day. Go ahead, order that pizza.

The volume of your items + mileage of your move + special requests & moving complexities = Our competitive flat rate fee.

This is how we calculate your flat rate fee:


We measure the volume of your move in Cubic Feet or rather the Cubic Feet of the items we are moving for you. When we quote you, we use our furniture and item calculator that estimates your move’s volume so we can accurately reserve the right size of truck and quote your move. We take a full inventory of all of your items to correctly quote your Cubic Feet.


How far are you moving from origin to destination (including any stops in between).

Special requests & Complexity

Do you have a large marble table you want to move? Any art that needs to be protected? Have an elevator or stairs? These factors will help us determine the best way to move you and any additional man power needed during your move.

Dangers of Hourly Fee moving service

  • Doesn’t consider your fully itemized inventory list.
  • Guesses how much you move is and tells you if they can do the job.
  • May not bring enough equipment and movers to complete your job as they did not itemize inventory.
  • You can pay for however long it takes for them to move you, they may stretch out your move.
  • Given the price isn’t guaranteed many times if a lot of materials are required for your move they can pass these costs on to you.
  • Will pass on any travel expenses, such as tickets and tolls.
  • Easily impacted by unexpected issues such as traffic.

Dangers of a Weight Fee moving service

Some moving companies charge by how much your move weighs, this applies to long distance moves.

  • Will give you an initial price that includes tolls, mileage etc. then once the truck is loaded will confirm the weight and charge you accordingly on weight. Which is a BIG element of surprise, and as you have already committed to them you can’t change at the last minute.
  • Unexpected increase in cost because rarely do you know how much your items will collectively weigh.

Our flat rate pricing means no hidden surprises, ever.

We include all of the following services at no extra charge to you.

Unexpected costs are not fun (we would say they are downright rude!). Our flat rates for our moving packages and include the common-sense stuff in our services such as:

In two words: excellent service!This was truly the easiest move I've ever had, and could not have been happier with the hard work the three guys put in. Will definitely hire them in the future.

Very professional, efficient and friendly movers, wearing gloves and masks the entire time.Moved a 1.5 bedroom apartment in Brooklyn to Manhattan, NY. Took care of all the big furniture (bed, TVs and stands, couch, tables) and loaded everything in just 90 minutes.These guys are extremely professional and efficient! I will definitely use them again.
