Flat rate versus variable rate. This issue comes up in different areas of life. It might apply to the type of mortgage you pick or perhaps which electricity plan you choose. It can also refer to the type of contract you arrange for your next move.
Movers can be contracted by an hourly rate or by a flat rate. With hourly rates, the movers usually charge from the time they arrive at your house to the time they are completely unpacked and are leaving when the move is complete. Your final bill will include not just the distance of the move but whether or not there are traffic delays.
Issues can arise if it takes longer to move something, or perhaps a railing needs to be removed; you will be charged for this on your final bill. Not sure if that couch will fit around the corner? The time it takes to sort out the removal process or disassemble the couch will be included in the hourly rate bill.
It is hard to know which is cheaper, an hourly or a flat rate move. One thing is certain; a flat rate move is less stressful than an hourly move. With an hourly move, there are factors in play that you have no control over, such as traffic or weather. Remember to also consider the cost of your well-being. Does your peace of mind have value?
Stress is a billion-dollar industry. It can wreak havoc on our health, whether the stress is short-term or chronic. Some experts cite moving as being even more stressful than divorce. What can you do to mitigate your moving stress? While it may be impossible to completely remove all stress from moving, you can control it.
Consider what is truly important to you. Is it better for you to take full control of your move, including the possibility of unanticipated problems and extra costs? Or is it smart to enlist the help of trained professionals, people who do this for a living and are familiar with the issues that can arise? You can always make more money, but you can’t always reverse the effects of stress.

HOW TO BOOK TOREX TO BE YOUR FLAT RATE MOVERS
To give you a comprehensive, flat-rate moving estimate, we need a detailed description of all items that need to be moved. Do you have any specialty items such as a pool table or piano? If you have stairs, how many flights? Is there an elevator available?
We will need to have the move location addresses. Please let us know if you require any extra services like mobile storage, cleaning, or packing/unpacking. Once we have all this information, we can provide you with a final flat rate price. This price won’t change, giving you peace of mind before your big move.
