Affordable Local Movers
A local move is one in which the cost of the move is charged by the hour (with a 3 hour minimum), depending on the size of the van or truck, the number of people employed on the move, plus the cost of extra services such as packing, storage, cleaning and valuation, etc.
Charges are based on the actual time on the job plus driving time between your residence and our office. Preparation before the move is your key to keeping moving costs to a minimum.
We only charge in 15 minute increments, most companies will charge for the full hour. For example, if your move is completed at 3:10pm our clock stops at 3:15, we do not charge for the full hour of service. We believe customer care and satisfaction are our primary goal. Top priority to deliver an efficient and stress free move, at an affordable price. Each move is planned and tailored to each individual’s specific needs.

Moving and Travel Time:
We take pride in choosing the correct mover for your move. Travel time is a flat rate fee based on the average driving time from our office to your area. Half this fee allows our truck to get from our office to your home to begin the move. The other half covers the return back to our office at the completion of your move. Moving travel time does not include the driving time between loading and unloading. This time is included in your normal hourly charge.
Travel time will be added to your hourly charges at the completion of your move. There is a minimum charge of two hours of moving time plus travel time.
We do not charge for kilometres, but there may be a fuel surcharge depending upon your location.
All moving times are pending upon the distance you are from your house/apartment to the moving truck, RCM 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.
We value our employees. There is a small staircase charge for a flight of stairs that is paid directly to the employees. All moving companies charge extra for moving up or down each staircase they come across in a move to cover the extra time, risk and exposure it gives them for possible damage and personal injury.
For all larger moves there will be an in house estimate required. A Deposit is required upon booking. We accept all major credit cards and cash. An email confirmation is optional but still enacts as legal deposit.
