Q: I got a quote from another company that was lower than what you gave me. Why should I go with your services?

A: As a professional licensed mover, we will never be able to compete with other companies who fly under the radar and are uninsured, unlicensed, and that do not have the other operating expenses that a real transportation business has. It may be tempting to utilize the services of a rouge mover, But there is great risk involved. When you utilize the services of a reputable licensed mover, you have greater consumer security.

Q: How do you charge for services?

A: All moves that are 40 miles or less with both the origin and destination being within the borders of the State of Pennsylvania are charged by the hour. That hourly rate is dependant on the number of crew members needed to safely and successfully complete that move. Any moves that are 41 miles or more, and the origin and destination is between points in Pennsylvania, must be charged by weight and mileage. For Interstate moves(State to State), The U.S DOT allows movers to charge either by weight and mileage(non-binding estimate) or a flat rate(binding estimate). We offer binding estimates on all Interstate moves. Please note that binding estimates are not allowed for long distance moves(over 40 miles) between points within the borders of the State of Pennsylvania as per PA Public utility law.

Q: If your Employees are injured while working in my home, am I responsible for their medical bills?

A: No. Our company carries workers compensation as required by law,  and we are totally responsible for any work related injuries during performance of their duties. We do not use temporary labor or subcontractors.
