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 rate fee.

This is how we calculate your flat rate fee:

Moving Boxes

Volume

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

Mileage

How far are you moving from origin to destination (including any stops in between).

Special requests & Complexity

Do you have a large marble table you want to move? Any art that needs to be protected? Have an elevator or stairs? These factors will help us determine the best way to move you and any additional man power needed during your move.

A Flat rate fee 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 rate 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 many times if a lot of materials are required for your move they can pass these costs on to you.

  • Will pass on any travel expenses, such as tickets and tolls.

  • Easily impacted by unexpected issues such as traffic.

Dangers of a Weight Fee moving service

Some moving companies charge by how much your move weighs, this applies to long distance moves.

  • Will give you an initial price that includes tolls, mileage etc. then once the truck is loaded will confirm the weight and charge you accordingly on weight. Which is a BIG element of surprise, and as you have already committed to them you can’t change at the last minute.

  • Unexpected increase in cost because rarely do you know how much your items will collectively weigh.
