HOW WE MAKE IT WORK?
Move Time starts once movers arrive at your origin address and ends when movers finish unloading at the destination address. Job Time = Move Time + Travel Time. Travel Time – Time added to Move Time in order to compensate for time spent traveling from our terminal to the shipper’s point of origin, and the return trip from destination to the terminal. 30 minutes minimum and 1 hour maximum travel time is applied to all jobs in the greater San Antonio area.

This email is important because it’s proof of your reservation with us and also provides you with some very important information regarding your move and our policies.
What does your move start time mean?Times listed on your estimate and move confirmation are arrival windows. For example if you have scheduled a morning appointment, arrival time will be sometime between 8am to 10am and your moving crew will arrive between this time. You will be notified if the crew can and will be arriving early. If your move is scheduled for a late morning or an afternoon time slot then we will provide you with an estimated 3-4 hour window for your start time. Once the crew finishes their first job(s), we will call to provide you a more precise arrival time. We do not expect you to sit around waiting for your movers, however we ask that you please remain flexible on your move day and make sure you are available during your arrival window. If it becomes evident that your crew is running late we will call to let you know. The most common reason for a delay is incorrect or incomplete information provided by a previous customer. This is why your confirmation email asks that you double check your inventory list and let us know if there are any changes at least twenty four (24) hours before your move. We also need to know if any item(s) require significant assembly/disassembly. Every extra item or service takes time. We are happy to assist you with whatever you need, and we do ask that you provide us with that information beforehand to avoid inconveniencing other customers.
Payment methods – For local moves, you must pay in full at the day of your job by CASH or VISA/MC/DISCOVER/ /AMEX.
