Do you use weight to calculate prices?


We do not use weights to calculate prices, as it’s very time consuming to go and scale the truck both full and empty, and it’s more common with companies that are moving multiple shipments across long distances as they usually need to spend a lot of extra time dismantling everything to fill every cubic inch of the truck and maximize the total weight they can squeeze on. Thus, the weight of each shipment represents a portion of the total space available on that truck across whatever distance it is. Since the majority of our moves are local, we just charge hourly as it’s a simpler and a more accurate representation of the amount of work involved in performing your move, and cuts out the unnecessary cost of sending the truck (and crew) to the scale to weigh every shipment.
