Who uses Moving Labor Services?

In addition, we have serviced a variety of small and large businesses that found our labor services to be adequate for their temporary labor needs.
How many hours of service do I need for my household move?
Typically, it would take 2 men about 2 hours to load a 10-ft U-haul truck. However, this load time could be severely compromised if there is a substantial distance of walking performed from the apt-to-elevator, elevator-to-exit/ entrance and the exit/ entrance to the moving vehicle. These aforementioned factors are always a primary determinate when assessing the approximate time it takes to perform a household move. In addition, if your household goods are not properly boxed and your furniture items have not been disassembled, the duration of your move may take longer
Why is there a 2 hour minimum for Moving labor services?
A two-hour minimum is standard for most companies that offer moving labor services. In that, it would normally take approximately 2 hours for any service provider to perform even the smallest household move.
Furthermore, it would not be cost effective or reasonable for a company to dispatch a moving associate to your location to perform a household move for less than 2 hours.
When does my prepaid time start?
The prepaid scheduled time for your moving labor services starts when moving associates arrive as scheduled to your location. If moving associates are tardy for any reason the prepaid scheduled time will not begin until they arrive to the worksite.

Do you carry the Certificate of Insurance required to perform a household move in my building
Some apartment buildings, co-ops and condominiums require all service providers movers, handyman, construction workers, etc., to provide proof of insurance. In most cases, a 2 million general liability coverage is the commonly requested amount by most commercial properties. This is done by way of a special form called a “Certificate of Insurance” (COI) that must filed by insurance agents prior to any move or service being performed on their premises. Since our services are hired for labor only, there is an administrative fee of $70 per facility required.

In that, it is your responsibility to obtain the required information or sample certificate needed for insurance agents to adequately complete a COI (certificate of insurance) meeting your buildings requirement, so that they could file it with your building management.

We ask that you immediately furnish the following information:
• Date/ time of Move:
• Tenant name:
• Apt #:
• Address:
• Name of Building:
• Certificate holder name /address:
• Any additional insured:
• Fax/ Email:

This fee does not include the costs of traveling to an additional location following the arrival of the moving crew to your initial location. In that, you may be required to pay some additional travel fees if you are moving to a secondary location or making multiple stops. Alternatively, you will be responsible for getting the moving crew back to the first location immediately following the move.
What is a Payment Code?
A payment code is a six–digit number that is issued by a third party vendor (Movinghelp.com) as an alternative form of payment when you make a reservation for household moving-related services from our company.

Why do I have to supply further information about my household move?
Household moving could sometimes be a very intricate process. As experienced household movers, we are typically able to gauge and assess any potential problems with a particular move and produce an effective solution to make sure your moving transition is effectively and efficiently performed.

In order for this to be done, it is appropriate for our move coordinators to ask our clients certain information about your household goods and furniture items. In that, it is important to know whether a particular client may have any heavy, bulky and/ or fragile items being moved, so that we could assess which items may require special attention. We also would about the amount of stairs at the location(s) and if the residence has an elevator on premise. In addition, we would need to know the approximate distances of flat surface space we would encounter from your apartment to your elevator, elevator to building entrance, etc. This would further help us determine whether your move would require carts, dollies or hand trucks to be performed efficiently.

How could I tell if my reservation was completed?
During the reservation process you are asked to enter an valid email address. This email will be used to confirm your booking. In addition, you will receive a phone call within 48-hours of reserving our services.
How Many Moving Blankets Do I Need?
When accessing the number of moving blankets needed for your household move we often advise the strategy of simply counting items around the house that need to be covered. Since moving blankets and pads often vary in size, we suggest you use moving blankets that range in larger sizes such as 72″ X 80″ to 68” x 85”.used by some rental truck vendors. This would allow you  better coverage over your household furniture and other items.

As for counting your furniture and other items, you should count everything from bedroom dressers to headboards and living room sofas. We also advise you to count larger glass items that you do not have adequate protective covering for such as glass tables, mirrors, picture frames, etc. It is also advisable to apply multiple blanket counts for larger than normal items like 2-3 seater sofas, armoires, which are generally larger than normal.

Lastly, we suggest that you should add about 6 extra moving blankets as a margin of error so that you cover and protect everything. TIP: If you have very heavy furniture, we suggest that you invest in purchasing some premium moving pads.  This would help provide the ultimate cushioning required for the protection of much heavier items..
