Timed quotes include ALL fees for LOCAL moves for loading, hauling and unloading. Time starts upon arrival at your 1st address and ends after the last item is unload.
All truck sizes include 2 movers, blankets, dolly and free released value protection insurance.
The minimum time for each truck size is usually enough to complete the move without going over. Less than 20% require additional time.
The rate includes free released value protection insurance for the items being transported. A labor service of moving items that are not being transported or any labor service other than loading, hauling and unloading is not included in the rate since insurance only applies to items being transported.
Packing and wrapping is not included, however, the trucks do come equipped with blankets for use while stacking the truck.
EACH AREA (COLUMBUS, CINCINNATI, DAYTON) HAVE THEIR OWN BASE RATES. CLICK ON THE BOOK ONLINE AND SELECT THE AREA TO SEE AVAILABLE TRUCK SIZES AND RATES. EACH TRUCK SIZE COMES WITH A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF TIME FOR THE RATE. THE MINIMUM TIME GIVEN IS USUALLY ENOUGH TO COMPLETE THE MOVE.
***OVERTIME: Over the allotted time for each truck size, add $40 per each 20 minute increment. If there is a chance that your move will go over the allotted time, it is better to get a flat rate: https://fastgood4cheap.com/3/custom_form.htm
***The set rates for timed moves include the fees for one truck load. If a 2nd load is needed, time restarts upon arrival at your 1st address with a new rate minimum, so be sure to book the correct truck size to hold your items in one load. If you are unsure, use the chat feature to get advice or on your request to book form, list the items to be moved and the quote manager will recommend a truck size.
***A move involving an elevator and/or shared entrance (large building, with a main entrance, that requires walking past other apartments to get to yours), or a 3rd floor apartment will require a flat rate since these types of moves will most likely result in going over the allotted time frame for each truck size.
***Over 30 miles between addresses or over 30 miles from the nearest branch warehouse will require a flat rate.
***200 pound weight limit per item if stairs are involved or 300 pounds if no stairs are involved.
***larger than 4 bedroom sets and/or 2 living room sets will require a flat rate.
Hourly rate (timed) moves are sometimes declined if the travel and expected move time could possibly exceed the appointment block or if the move details are too vague to access how long the move may take. Afternoon moves may be declined, depending on the size and if stairs are involved, due to fatigue (insurance risk as well as possibly causing the move to go over the appointment time block), since the move is timed and the movers have already completed a prior move.
When possible request a morning appointment.
