Reliable Movers tariff is filed with the Department of Transportation as a general binding estimate mover.
What does this mean?
Movers are offered a few different options by the Department of Transportation for giving estimates or estimating moves.
1. hourly which includes per man
2. by weight
3. general binding estimate.
Which is more cost effective?
We believe that general binding estimate is more cost effective to you the customer. This means we give one price, and it will not change unless the shipment inventory has drastically changed.
It does not matter how long the move takes or how many men are used. In the end you will know exactly how much your move will cost, no surprises.
Reliable Movers has several different ways of pricing moves because we operate on General Binding Estimate. Since we do not offer by the hour or by weight we price our residential moves by the truck size and space used.
Offering prices by the truck size give us a guideline for pricing. For a 26 foot truck we price by how full it is. 1/4 ,1/2, 3/4, or full.
Many times customers do not understand how much inventory they actually have. Setting up a free in home estimate will assist on how much space you will need.
By using this system it also gives customers the ability to stop at 3/4 or full, opting to take the smaller loose items by their own transport to save money.
An average 1-2 bedroom apartment will fit into a 16 foot cube truck.
An average home of 3 bedrooms will fit into a 26 foot truck.
After reviewing your inventory a truck size will be determined. The price for the truck includes, men, gas, labor, shrink wrapping, break down and set up of bedroom furniture, moving pads, dollies, and 1 trip.
Excessive walk ways, stair carry, extra stops, or additional trips can change the normal truck price.
The truck is loaded to its fullest capacity, utilizing every space available.
All shipments within New York State are valued at .60 per pound as per NYSDOT law. You have the option of full valuation insurance at a additional cost.
