Man with a Van – Hourly Rate of Fixed Quote
You will have noticed that most moving companies, if not all apply to types of charge: The fixed all-inclusive rate or the hourly pay as you go price. They are both good, but each is suited to a particular circumstance.
The Hourly rate is ideal for small moves where the amount is very limited and the distance being moved is within the locality of a city or particular area. Man and van services often use this type of pricing for their labour. It is ideal often the cheapest way to move. Things to watch out for when going with this rate are:
- Time Limit, and if yes what will be the charge once I go over the time limit?
- Will the driver help
- Do I get to ride in the van?
- When does the time start and payment method
Then comes the fixed rate which is often the best when the move involves travelling long distances and when the time required to complete the move is not certain. This is good in the sense you will know exactly what the cost will be and you don’t have the worry and strain time limits. Ideally it is best to get the removal company to come and view the property before quoting.
The best quote is the one that takes into account the full nature of your particular move. The starting point of course begins with you giving the movers to be as much information as possible. This will avoid a price change on the day, and once the removal men find out the true size of your move. And furthermore to avoid confusing and overwhelming yourself it is best to do an estimate of the amount you have and what you yourself will be willing to do to help light the burden of the move upon the movers. This will A save you Money and B, making unpacking much easier at the end. Not that you should worry about unpacking once it’s all done, before you even start packing, but might be a good idea to keep in mind. A fixed quote is always the way to go, because you will know exactly how much to budget.
