For long distance moves, I will view the job in person, and then provide a written, guaranteed fixed price.
If you agree to hire us, we sign a contract for that price, and there will be no other charges and no surprises.
For local moves, we charge a fixed service fee (generally $150 or $200) for the job, plus a $50 hourly charge per mover. It's that simple. Always.
We don't EVER charge extra for fuel, weight, or any other gimmicks that other companies sometimes use.
If you hire us, every person who works on your move, from packing to moving to cleaning, is a full time employee of Bay Area Moving and Storage who has been trained by us before working on any customer moves.
