Moving Labor Services -v- Full Service Moving

At Moving with Pride L.L.C. we take pride in what we do. We are built on honesty and integrity and strive to met or exceed our customers expectations. We are an Accredited Business with an A+ Rating at The Better Business Bureau (BBB) Over the past few years, there has been a substantial increase in the demand for moving labor help. The rental of moving trucks and portable storage containers have increased as well. Of course, the cost of renting a truck for local moves or portable container for long distance moves is much lower than hiring a full service moving company. Why is this? Well, this is because of the "over-head" associated with the use of a company vehicle. "Overhead" is simply the cost the company will incur to provide a service or product. It is taken into consideration for budgeting and calculating profits. A few examples of overhead associated with a moving company is "the customers start time". If the movers are scheduled to arrive to the customers location at 9 am, and the location is an hour drive from the warehouse, the crew will have to be scheduled to arrive at the warehouse at 7 am. This will give them time to put the proper equipment on the truck, perform a pre-trip inspection and get to the job at 9 am. The 2 hours from 7 am to 9 am is the time the crew has been on the clock and of course, gets paid for. However' the customer does not get charged until the crew arrives to their location. This 2 hour cost is called company overhead. The same process is repeated once the move is completed and this can add an additional 2 hours of overhead for the crew to return back to the warehouse and unload equipment from truck. Fuel, mileage and cargo insurance are just a few more examples of company overhead. The elimination of company overhead cost will decrease the price of your project. Therefore, consumers are renting there own trucks or portable containers, booking movers for moving labor only and saving a bundle. Today, there are plenty of portable storage container companies to choose from. One of the most popular well known companies for portable storage rental is called "Pods". At Pods you can rent containers of various sizes 7', 12' & 16'. However there are plenty of companies to choose from depending on your location and budget. Sparefoot, 1800pakrats, mobile mini, smart box, ubox are just a few of the portable storage companies to choose from. If you are looking for a much larger container, I would suggest going with a company like ABF Freight. They have the ability to provide larger containers for much larger projects. Whichever route you choose for your rental truck or portable storage needs, don't trust your project to just anyone. Book Moving with Pride L.L.C. directly and save a bundle on you next moving labor project.


Once you have rented your storage container you can hire professional movers to load, unload or both.
