- A Written Binding Estimates(Flat Rate Quote)
With a Written Binding Estimate, the price we quote is the price you pay. A Written Binding Estimate is the correct legal term for a "flat" or "guaranteed" price, as opposed to an hourly estimate. A WBE is based on a firm, agreed upon inventory of goods to be moved and services to be provided
- B Hourly Rate
The crew hourly rate is based on the number of residential movers and trucks required. We always assign the optimal number of movers to each and every job in order to minimize cost and maximize efficiency. For local moves that originate in LA & OC county, the clock starts when the movers arrive at the origin and stops upon completion of the delivery.
We will do the packing and unpacking for you!
Packing and unpacking are done at the same hourly rate as the move. You are only charged the straight hourly rate for all labor services. There is no surcharge whatsoever while they are packing and/or unpacking.
When do we charge for Boxes and Packing Materials?
All boxes and packing materials are charged as used. When you are packed up and ready to go, or provide your own adequate boxes and materials, we will not add anything to the hourly rate as a additional expense. In the event an item, such as a glass or marble table top or glass doors, requires a cardboard crate, the foreman will advise you of the cost and the crate will be made on the spot. You will only be charged for actual materials used.
VERY IMPORTANT! All drawers are to be emptied prior to the move. Clothing and linens should be packed into medium sized boxes (linen boxes). KINGS Moving & Storage INC does not accept any goods in paper or plastic bags; loose items, including televisions, electronics, lamps, pictures and mirrors must be boxed for safety and will not be carried otherwise.
What is Double Drive Time?
For many, the term 'Double Drive Time' has caused a great deal of confusion. By calling and speaking to the public utilities commission office for the State of California.
Double Drive time is exactly the way that it sounds, but only from the point of origin, to the point of destination. Many moving companies will charge, in some kind of way, for the truck to go out to a location in either a worst case calculation, which says that it is a full cycle of driving from headquarters, origin, destination and back, point to point, which is from the origin to the destination, or start and end which calculates the distance from the shop to the origin, and the shop to the destination. This applies to all California state jobs, whether that location falls inside their local mile radius, or is an intrastate.
The PUCO's reasoning is simple. If you are to drive to a customer's house, mileage starts when you arrive at the point of origin, then on to the destination. The reason it is doubled is because they are saying you can charge the amount from the destination, back to the origin in travel distance, but the rest of the drive time back to your headquarters is on you.
