Ideal Delivery would like to help you understand the way local moving charges are determined. Here is how we base the pricing for local moving services:

The number of movers and number of moving trucks required to perform the move

The drive time between your old home and new home

The amount of time it takes to unload your belongings into your new home

The travel time to reach your current and new location

The amount of time it takes the movers to load your belongings into our moving truck

The amount of time to return to Ideal Delivery

Since your cost is determined by time, there are a number of things that can come into play. The accessibility for parking of the Ideal moving truck. Is it possible to park close to your home so the items don’t have to be moved or carried a long distance? How many rooms you are having us move. Naturally the more items you have the more trips to and from the truck and the more wrapping and padding will be necessary. Large or heavy items may take a little longer to move. Are there stairs or elevators involved? Sometimes things may not fit into your new home so using stairs instead of an elevator or hoisting to an outside deck or window is required. One of the advantages by choosing Ideal Delivery is with over 35 years of experience Ideal Delivery has encountered and overcome all of these issues over the years.
