The two hour minimum charges as described above are the all inclusive, complete totals for the first two hours of work beginning once we arrive. Beyond the the first two hours we simply charge the hourly rates as described above. There are no additional fees. The clock stops when the job is complete. If a lunch break is taken it will be off the clock, unless otherwise specified by the customer as a paid lunch. After the two hour minimum we pro-rate by 30 minutes.
In order to maintain the same low moving rates for almost two decades now, we have had to cut our costs as much as possible. One major expense for any small business is credit card processing fees. All advertised rates on our website are the cash rates. If you choose to pay the remaining portion of your move after the two hour minimum by credit/debit card, there will be an additional $20 convenience fee added to the bill. To read more about our payment structure please visit the polices page of the website.
CAUTION: AFTERNOON APPOINTMENTS ARE ALWAYS A WINDOW OF ARRIVAL DUE TO THE FACT THAT THESE ARE NOT THE FIRST JOBS OF THE DAY. ALL CREWS START WORKING IN THE MORNING AND AS THEY FINISH THEY START THE AFTERNOON JOBS. A 30 MINUTE ADVANCED NOTICE IS GIVEN BEFORE THE CREW ARRIVES. ALTHOUGH WE TRY OUR BEST TO MEET YOUR SCHEDULED WINDOW OF TIME, WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE CREW WILL BE ON TIME DUE TO POTENTIAL COMPLICATIONS WITH MORNING JOBS SCHEDULED AHEAD OF YOU. DO NOT CHOOSE AN AFTERNOON WINDOW OF TIME IF YOU HAVE ANY TIME RESTRAINTS SUCH AS ELEVATOR ACCESS, STORAGE ACCESS, EVENING APPOINTMENTS OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF DEADLINE.
All moving packages included Released Value insurance protection, which provides partial reimbursement for any damaged household items. Please review our policies page for complete terms and conditions of service.
All reservations are made via telephone. A $100 deposit via credit/debit card is required to hold your date and time. This $100 will be deducted from your two hour cash minimum on the day of the move. (i.e. $295 total for two hours, less $100 deposit, equals $195 cash to start the move). If you cancel your move at any point, the $100 deposit is nonrefundable. There is no grace period. You may reschedule to a different day or time up to 24 hours in advance without penalty.
The moving services offered by American Moving Services come in a variety of affordable packages. Our pricing - half of what our top competitors charge - is what sets our moving company apart.
