Moving and Travel Time
Travel time may apply depending on the locations that you are moving in both Seattle Area and Bay Area, is a flat rate fee based on the average driving time from the truck station to your area.
Why is travel time charged? To help compensate the time it takes our moving team to get from our lot to your home and then back to park the truck. They are working while driving to and from your home and must be paid. Your travel time charge is a flat rate and often covers less than the actual time it takes our men to travel. We cover the rest of the costs to keep a healthy balance between customer costs and worker satisfaction.
Travel Time Charge is a flat rate charge applied once to every move. Moving travel time does not include the driving time between loading and unloading. This time is included in your normal hourly charge.
A fuel surcharge may apply depending upon your location.
All moving times are pending upon the distance you are from your house/apartment to the moving truck, MTM suggest saving a parking spot for the moving truck. The closer you are to the front or back door, will save you time and allow the move to be more stress free.
Our customers are responsible for reserving a parking lot for our trucks. We are not responsible for the time it takes to walk your items to a far distance to where the truck has been parked. Our customers are also responsible to book an elevator; we will need to have it locked off with a key. (Without the key, the elevator will be continually opening and closing possibly damaging your items.
