How we calculate your flat price?

Our flat fee is transparent with no surprises


How Piece of Cake prices your all inclusive move?

Have you ever completed a move only to have your movers update the invoice at the end of the job, adding more charges and leaving you with a strange feeling something wasn’t right about the experience?

Piece of Cake is built to remove surprises and ensure your move is a positive one, delivered on time and on budget with movers that go the extra mile to support you.

volume of your items + mileage of your move + special requests & moving complexities = Your Piece of Cake Flat fee.

This is how we calculate your flat fee:

Moving Boxes


We measure the volume of your move in Cubic Feet or rather the Cubic Feet of the items we are moving for you. When we quote you, we use our furniture and item calculator that estimates your move’s volume so we can accurately reserve the right size of truck and quote your move. We take a full inventory of all of your items to correctly quote your Cubic Feet.

Moving distance


The distance from your first location to your final destination, taking into account any stops along the way.

Special requests & Complexity

Do you have a large marble table you want to move? Are you in a pre-war walk up with stairs and tight corners? These factors will help us determine the best process for moving you and any additional man power needed during your move.

A flat price vs hourly fee and weight based fees

What’s the alternative with other movers?
When you choose an hourly or weight based moving service you would be surprised at the additional fees that can really add up.

With Piece of Cake’s moving flat fee your charges are upfront and include many moving add-ons for free, as part of the one price.

Don’t risk your budget for what may look like a better price at first glance but has hidden pitfalls on the day.
With the chances of traffic in gridlock in major cities on the rise, a price based on time can easily spiral out of control.


Dangers of Hourly Fee moving service

  • Doesn’t consider your fully itemized inventory list.

  • Guesses how much you move is and tells you if they can do the job.

  • May not bring enough equipment and movers to complete your job as they did not itemize inventory.

  • You can pay for however long it takes for them to move you, they may stretch out your move.

  • Given the price isn’t guaranteed, if multiple other materials are required for your move which weren’t in your estimate they can increase your charge on the day.

  • Additional travel expenses can be passed on to you, like tolls and tickets.

  • Easily impacted by unexpected issues such as traffic.

Dangers of a Weight Fee moving service

Some moving companies charge by the total weight of all your belongings, this applies to long distance moves.

  • Under this pricing structure, they provide an initial price that includes traffic expenses like tolls and mileage. However after the truck is loaded and weighed again they will adjust pricing accordingly. There is a BIG element of surprise, and as you have already committed to them you can’t change at the last minute.

  • It’s also near impossible to estimate exactly how much your items will weigh in total in advance, to help you estimate what the final charge might be and stick to a budget.


How Piece of Cake prices your all inclusive long distance move?

With your Long Distance move we will price it as if you were moving locally. The only difference being that the mileage makes up much more of your moving fee.

This is how we calculate your flat fee:

volume of your items + mileage of your move + special requests & moving complexities = Your Piece of Cake Flat fee.
