The Devil is in the Details
Our client told us she needed to move a couch, a queen bed, a hope chest, an entertainment center to her new apartment and then a washer and a dryer to a storage place a couple of blocks from her new apartment. MOVE IT! by bike agreed to send two movers and two trailers and thought that would be enough to move it all in two trips in two hours. When we arrived we saw that the stairs and the large size of the furnishings would cause some time delays. The couch turned out to be an L shaped sofa which is really two sofas from a movers point of view. All the pieces were large and heavy and had to be taken down the narrow twisted steps. But we did it all in two trips and took 3 hours and 45 minutes. The bill would have been $300 almost double the $160 we gave as an estimate. So we agreed to take $50 off and asked only for $250. Our movers were paid for the full time they worked.
