Many people who move for the first time wonder exactly how movers charge for their services. Here's an overview of the moving rates at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Akron.
Local moves are billed at an hourly rate. This rate includes everything the movers will need such as dollies, truck, pads and straps. Coverages are included with no deductible. Please call for an estimate; we are also available for an onsite estimate.
Packing is billed at an hourly rate. Our packing services include all the boxes and materials needed to pack an entire home or business. We can pack one box, or the entire home or business. All items that we pack are insured by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Akron. All items that are packed on your own are not covered.
Load or Unload Only
Loading and unloading services are billed at an hourly rate. We offer loading and unloading of trucks, for example, should you be moving out of state. We can also provide any supplies you may need, such as pads and straps.
For long-distance moves, anything 80 miles outside of Akron, we charge a flat rate. It is a price that will not fluctuate. Other companies may give you an estimate based on weight and distance. Then, after they load the items on the truck, they go over a scale and determine the “actual” weight. This is when you hear the horror stories about the price doubling at the unload. For example, let's say it's estimated that you have 5,000 lbs on the truck, but you find out once it's weighed that it's actually 8,500 lbs. When this happens, the charges go up. To avoid this, we give you an exact price on what it will cost to get from point A to point B – regardless of weight.
Another thing to keep in mind is that we offer an expedited service. This means we load only your boxes on the truck, drive them directly to your new location and unload them. The same friendly movers who load your items will carefully unload them. Most long-distance movers load your items along with others' and bounce around the country until they get to your unload destination – possibly weeks later. They may also drop your belongings into storage until someone else comes along to grab and deliver them.
