There’s a lot to consider when evaluating your move. To best way to find out how much your move will cost is by signing up for one of our tried-and-true quoting processes. We can either text you a link to complete the Virtual Walkthrough, set up a time for a FaceTime or GoogleDuo, or visit your home in person to give you a quote. Give us a call or fill out a form on our website to get the quickest response.
Your move will mainly consist of three charges, the truck fee, the hourly rate, and the fuel surcharge. The trip charge is a flat rate fee to cover the costs of getting our truck, crew, and supplies to and from your door. The hourly moving rate fluctuates depending on the size of the crew, and it will be shown on your estimate. The fuel surcharge is $1/mile driven on moves that are within a 30 mile radius of our warehouse.
We price hourly so that our customer is in control of how much they spend. We are happy to help with anything moving-related such as packing, assembly, disassembly, organizing, dismounting TV's, etc. This also allows the customer to save money if they prepare well and move some small items on their own. We will only bill you for the amount of time we use. If your move requires less time due to your preparation, you will save money.
Your estimate is provided by a professional with plenty of experience in quoting. We believe setting high expectations will provide us with satisfied customers. Typically, when we go over a quoted estimate, it is a shared responsibility between Minnē Movers and the customer. This happens from miscommunication about what the customer will do to prepare for moving day and how much they expect Minnē Movers to do. If there are added items or tasks on moving day then it is likely the pricing will go over. We also come across unforeseen events from time to time that cause the move to take longer than expected.
The unforeseen events that were not discussed will cause your move to increase.
Honesty and transparency are important when it comes to receiving an accurate quote.
