HOW DOES N.L. WILSON MAKE IT WORK?

Move Time begins once the movers arrive at your origin address and ends when movers finish unloading at the destination address. Travel Time - is time that is added to Move Time in order to compensate for time spent traveling from our terminal to the shipper’s point of origin and the return trip to the terminal. A minimum of 30 minutes of Travel Time is applied to all jobs in Kansas City and nearby cities.

To choose the number of movers for each job

Depending on our current schedule, availability, weather conditions etc.

Add an additional mover

If the move is larger than communicated to {{basicsettings.company_name}} at the time of scheduling, or if there are Items of extraordinary weight and dimensions requiring more attention to avoid any damages to the furniture, premises and/or movers.

Please Note:

Materials or packing supplies such as boxes, mattress covers, plastic wrap etc. are not part of the hourly rate and they will be charged upon use.

Also note, additional movers will not significantly change your final bill, as the move itself goes more efficiently with more movers and it is only a matter of our availability to send them.

Example (small 1 bedroom apartment with living room):
2 movers x 4-5 hrs. (@$95/hr.) = $380.00 - $475.00
3 movers x 3-3.5 hrs. (@115/hr.) = $345.00 - $402.50
4 movers x 2.25-2.75 hrs. (@$145/hr.) = $326.25-$398.75

Step 3

You will now have an option to confirm your request. To schedule a move with {{basicsettings.company_name}} you should make a deposit (typically the first hour at your hourly rate) and you will receive a confirmation email from our office. This email is proof of your reservation with us and also provides you with some very important information regarding your move and {{basicsettings.company_name}} policies.

What does your move start time mean?

If you have scheduled a morning appointment, the movers arrival time will be sometime between 8am - 10am ( first move of the day), and your moving crew will arrive at the scheduled time (sometimes they are a few minutes early depending on weather or traffic).
If your move is scheduled for a late morning or an afternoon time slot, then we have provided you with an estimated 3-4 hour window of arrival. However, due to the fact that the crew will be coming directly from another move, this estimated time is subject to change. Once the crew finishes their first job(s) we will call to let you know a more precise arrival time. We do not expect you to sit around waiting for your movers for hours, but we do ask that you please remain flexible on your move day.

If it becomes evident that your crew is running late for the day, a {{basicsettings.company_name}} representative will call to let you know.
The most common reason for a delay is incorrect or incomplete information provided by a customer. This is why your confirmation email asks that you double check your inventory list and let us know if there are any changes by the day before your move. We also need to know if any item(s) require significant disassembly. If the movers show up to a move and find that they are now being asked to move 4 extra pieces of furniture, and 15 additional boxes, then they will finish their move later than anticipated. If a wall unit has dozens of pieces of hardware and requires 40 minutes of disassembly, then the movers will be behind schedule. Every extra item or service takes time, and while we are happy to assist you with whatever you need, we do ask that you provide us with that information beforehand to avoid inconveniencing other customers

Payment methods

For local moves, you must pay in full at completion of your job. Unless otherwise arranged, payment for local moves is due at the end of the job by cash, check, or major credit card (Visa, MC, Discover, AMEX). Payment for loading rental trucks, or self-moving containers is by cash or credit card only, no personal checks.

LABOR ONLY SERVICES

We charge the same hourly rate for a labor only move, as our regular moves. Even though you might not need a truck for your service, we usually send one anyway. A truck is not only the source of the transportation for our team to get to your address, It is fully equipped with all the necessary tools and equipment that the movers might need to provide the moving service at a professional level and without any issues. On the truck, the crew have all sizes of boxes, tape, shrink-wrap, mattress bags, ratchet straps, dollies, ramps, and of course, all the necessary tools required for disassembly of any furniture. It is obvious that the move goes faster and more efficiently with the right equipment, not to mention that sometimes it is impossible to provide the service without the right gadgets and tools.

LOADING/UNLOADING

We can provide all of the moving labor necessary to load and unload your moving truck, or POD. Whether you rent a U-Haul, Penske, Ryder, Enterprise, or Budget truck you can enjoy a professional move without the price... and the strain! {{basicsettings.company_name}} will meet you and load and/or unload your truck! This service is also available for ABF, U-Pack trailers, Door-To-Door, and PODS storage containers.

HOISTING

In general, there is a limit to what can be physically hoisted. Only so many movers can fit on the landing. Not to mention, exceeding a certain weight can cause railings or window frames to buckle and cause damage to the structure. If any items to be lifted to a higher floor are in excess of 250lbs, the safest and smartest choice is to use a hydraulic lift or crane. Another crucial factor in planning your hoist is finding the height that it needs to be hoisted to. Hoisting above a 2nd floor is complicated at best. While it might be possible to have one or two items brought up to a second floor via hoist, it would be best to use a hydraulic lift if there are more items than that. Each piece is protected before the hoist begins (using furniture pads, shrink wrap, and belts). Having the piece properly prepared beforehand avoids damages during the hoist and while it is being handled upstairs. Careful, heavy padding prevents the belts from rubbing against or damaging the surface of the piece. Heavy padding also protects the piece from scratching or tearing when going through openings (doorways or windows). Please let us know ahead of time about possible hoisting involved during your move, as special preparation and assessment must take place.
