Understanding your Estimate
The time begins when the crew arrives at the first location and you are on the clock the entire time STI is handling or transporting your goods. The travel rate is a onetime charge that depicts getting from our office to your first pick up location and from your last delivery location back to our office. Moving up and down 3 flights of stairs is included but any extra flights will be charged at $50 per flight (7 stairs is 1 flight). Basic liability is included with your move at $0.30 per pound per article. Free pad wrapping will be provided on moving day only, if extra packing materials are used they will be charged on a per use basis. Please note that various items including, electronics, glass (tabletops, shelving units, Media Stands, china cabinets) dishes, pictures and or other fragile items, must be properly packed by owner prior to pick-up or professionally packed by movers on move day. Mattresses and box springs require protection with plastic wrapping (either shrink wrap or mattress bags). Packing materials and services are available at the time of move for an additional charge.
If requested there will be a one-time $50 warehouse handling charge applied on the first day of storage. This charge will be a one-time fee. The first day of storage will be charged at $0.015 per LB and at $0.0015 every day thereafter. We charge a minimum of 2,000 lbs for storage. So if there is 2,000 lbs to be stored the first day would be (2,000lbs x $0.015 = $30) everyday thereafter would be (2,000lbs x $0.0015 per day = $3 per day)
Payment is collected at the final destination prior to unloading the shipment. Forms of payment that are accepted are cash, cashier’s check and money order. Visa, Master and Discover Card are also accepted with a 3% convenience fee. We do not accept personal checks at any time. Please note, we require a $50 hassle-free deposit for Local Moves which is applied to the total cost. The deposit is fully refundable up to 72 hours prior to the moving date, if cancellation is necessary.
