We respect your budget as much as your possessions. There are many ways to price a move. Our relocation consultant will tailor the best and most economical moving package to fit your specific needs but generally when determining the cost of your move the following elements are taken into account.
The hourly rate for the crew is based on the number of movers and trucks required. We always assign the optimal number of movers to every job in order to minimize cost and maximize productivity. For local moves that organize in New York, the clock starts when the movers arrive at the origin, and ends upon completion of the delivery.
Packing & Unpacking
The services of packing and unpacking are performed at the same hourly rate as the move. You are only charged the straight hourly rate for all labor services, there is no surcharge while they are packing and/or unpacking.
Basic Disassembly & Reassembly
The services of basic disassembly and reassembly of items such as bed frames are performed at the same hourly rate as the move. You are only charged the straight hourly rate for all labor services, there is no surcharge for disassembling or reassembling basic items.
Advanced Disassembly & Reassembly
Disassembly & reassembly of items such as sofas, built-ins, armoires and some wall units is completed by our furniture specialist. There is an extra charge for these services (please speak to your project manager should you require such services as a Moving Right Along Moving & Storage representative may need to view the items prior to the move to estimate the cost and work required.)
The hourly rate quoted will include manpower and vehicles. Our fleet is radio dispatched, offers late model state of the art air ride vehicles and lift gates.
For local moves that originate in New York, under New York State law, travel time considers the time it takes to travel to and from the job site. Moving Right Along Moving & Storage charges by zone (minimum ½ hour for moves within Queens; one hour and up outside of the borough.
Boxes & Packing Materials
Boxes and packing material are charged as used. If you are packed up and ready to go or provide your own adequate boxes and materials, you will not incur the additional expense. In the event an item, such as a glass or marble table top or glass doors, requires a cardboard crate, the foreman will advise you of the cost and the crate will be made on the spot. You will only be charged for the actual materials used. Also, Moving Right Along Moving & Storage does not accept any goods in paper or plastic bags; all loose items, including televisions, electronics, lamps, pictures, and mirrors must be boxed for safety and will not be carried loosely.
Custom Wood Crates
Art, antiques and some marble pieces may require (or you may request) a custom wood crate to be built. The crates must be designed and built-in advance of the move, so please notify your project manager in advance.
