How To Choose A Moving Company

Hourly rate, one fee for all the movers.

We have a 3-hour minimum for every job, whether you need us for 1 hour or more we will be there for as long as you need us. The hourly rate will include, wrapping the furniture in blankets and shrink wrap and disassembling and assembling all large furniture, we will bring all the necessary tools.

Our hourly rate is calculated by 30-minute intervals and the time will only begin when movers arrive at your door, we do not charge from the yard. The time will stop when the movers unload all the content from the truck and the contract is signed.

Extra fees may be subject to special item handling such as:

  • Pool table
  • Piano
  • Large Appliances
  • Gym Equipment
  • Odd items heavier than 200lbs
  • Stair fee in buildings only (If the elevator is not available)

Please ensure to mention any odd, heavy or large items included in your move during the quote process. This way we can properly price the move and assign the appropriate number of movers and have our truck equipped with all the necessary tools, whether it is a lift gate, pump truck or extra dollies.

Our sales agents can easily provide you with a quote over the phone or e-mail. However, if you are moving over 3 bedrooms worth of items or an office space that requires after-hours service we recommend an onsite estimate, that will be scheduled with our professional team in accordance with your schedule availability.

Depending on your location we do not request any deposit prior to the move. However, when you agree to all fees and the scheduled date we will request your credit card information for reservation purposes only. Your card will not be charged prior to the move completion.

Planning on moving your office space with a specific budget?

We have completed ample of office moves and are equipped to handle it all, after completing an onsite estimate in most cases we are able to provide you with a flat rate that will cover the whole project. However, if you prefer an hourly option here is how it works:

The pricing breakdown is a one time truck or arrival fee from the first office to the new one. Hourly rate will be calculated as one fee for all movers per hour with a 3-hour minimum. Please ensure to mention if your office space does not have elevators and the use of stairs is necessary, this would be an additional fee. Also, some large, odd items may be subject to additional handling fee items such as filing cabinets, safes and or copy machines. Whatever your business needs, we will take care of it for you.

Should your office require assistance in packing we will price it per hour and a one-time arrival fee. We also provide you plastic bins a week before the move and pick them up a week after if you prefer to pack yourself. Debris and junk removal are available from as small as one chair to a full office building.

At the end of the move, you will be prompted to sign the contract and pay via credit card or cash. Your move is now complete. Contact Metropolitan Movers today for your hassle-free, no hidden fee quote and let’s begin your moving journey together.
