Everyone has heard the horror stories: movers who don't show up or show up four hours late or hold their customers' belongings hostage in the moving van until the customers pay an extra "unloading" fee.

"We provide a thorough estimate that spells out every part of the job, such as how many boxes we think are needed, the number of hours the move will take and the number of men required," Mr. Crawford said. "Some other movers just provide a total, so it can be hard to compare estimates."
"Local moves are priced at an hourly rate and by the size of the crew, which is based on the size of the home you are moving from," Mr. Crawford said.
