Residential moves or household goods moves where the total distance between pick-up and destination locations do not exceed 100 miles are considered local moves. The cost for these moves is calculated based on an hourly rate and charges required by the CPUC.
The process of local residential moves is straightforward – we transport your packed items to the moving truck, protect all the upholstered furniture, load the truck in a safe, efficient and systematic order, drive to the destination point, and unload your belongings in the places you designate. Furniture disassembling and reassembling are available upon request. We also provide early delivery of packing materials, full and partial packing and unpacking service options, and in-transit storage options – the degree of our involvement is up to you.
Full service moves mean involvement of the crew in every aspect of the move – we will provide full packing of the belongings, document boxes and inventory items to be moved, securely load the moving truck, transport household goods to a new location, unload, unpack, reassemble, place the belongings where the customer needs them, and take away the packing material waste as we leave.
The local moves of individual item(s) that involve small loads of 2,000 pounds or less are called partial in the moving industry (e.g. bedroom sets, fridge, mattress, or some boxes). These jobs are calculated using hourly rate subject to Maxx 4 Tariff. Flat rates could be offered in some cases.
We can professionally transport items that are rare or out of the ordinary, which often means extra value and extra weight. We regularly move pianos, artwork, outdoor video systems, gym equipment, spas, and crystal decor. Each such moving order is unique and requires careful planning. We provide climate controlled in-transit storage, packing and crating, and additional insurance.
Storage In-Transit (SIT) – is a temporary storage option, pending further transportation, included to accommodate any last minute changes and emergency situations. It is ideal for people moving into a new home and in need of a safe and secure place to store their items while they wait for a closing date, resolution of construction-related and other issues.
