Local Movers Cost
The cost for hiring a local mover comes down to a few different factors that homeowners must consider during the relocation process. No doubt you are working with a budget for the entire move, which we here at American Way Van and Storage completely understand. That is why we offer affordable competitive pricing for our local moving services.
The cost of the move will be determined mainly by the size of your home and the number of items being loaded and unloaded into the moving truck. For example, a small one-bedroom apartment may only cost a certain amount, which won’t be too expensive. On the other hand, a four-bedroom house being moved a longer distance across the city will cost far more to complete the job. These factors will be discussed in detail when you call our local moving service. During our quote process, we will go over the cost of the service in detail with you directly.

How do you charge?
Our moving company in Dayton sets up charges based on what you want us to move and where it needs to be moved to. We also provide certain services that may be added to your overall cost.
Some of those special services include packing and storage. With our packing services, we will provide all the boxes, packing materials, crates, and other items needed to ensure all your belongings arrive safely. We can also pack up all of your belongings as well and load them into our trucks.
We also provide a storage service in Dayton. If your move gets complicated, we can hold your belongings until you’re ready to move into your new home. Our secure facilities provide plenty of protection from crime, fires, and natural disasters. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is getting into your new home.
Are there any hidden charges?
At American Way Van and Storage, we don’t believe in trying to trick you with hidden charges. When you get an estimate from us, we put it all out there so you can make an informed decision about what you need from your Dayton moving company.
When you sign a binding contract with us, we explain the precise cost of the moved based on the services you require as well as all the services performed. If there are any additional costs, such as shipping, then the price will go up, but we will make sure that you’re aware of this before you sign.
For all of our agreements, validity lasts for 60 days. If you do not hire us within that timeframe, then the price may change. If the price does go up within that timeframe, you will not be charged extra unless you do not use our services and must be requoted again.
Are my things and my home insured during the move?
Yes, American Way Van and Storage does offer several options for insurance. Depending on what you selected at the time you signed your contract, you may have different levels of coverage.
It is Ohio law that all moving companies be responsible for the value of the goods that are transported. At American Way Van and Storage, we offer several different options, including Released Value, Declared Value, and Full Value Protection or Coverage. Each one varies on its specific limits and parameters.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t always need full insurance coverage. Depending on the type of move, you may only need one of the smaller policies. For example, if you’re only moving across town, then you may not need full coverage. You’ll mostly be driving on town roads, which means speed limits will be low and the total drive time will be minimal. However, if you’re moving across the state, then it may be better to go with a higher level of coverage.
Remember, if you have valuable such as jewelry or electronic devices such as laptops or desktops, then it’s best you pack those on your own and move them in your own vehicle.
How do I get a local move estimate?
The best method to ensure you receive a comprehensive move estimate that includes everything you require – all rooms in the house, furniture, and the total distance to move included – is to simply give us a call and schedule an appointment. By calling us, we can send someone to your home, apartment, or business to move through each room with you. This allows us to fully examine what needs to be moved, how it needs to be loaded on the truck, and where the items are being delivered. The length of the delivery will play a part in determining the overall estimate, as will the number of movers required to successfully complete the job. For example, a large four-bedroom house will cost more to pack up and move when compared with a single-bedroom apartment. In conclusion, just give us a call! We’ll walk you through the entire process to make things easier for you.
How far in advance do I need to call to get my move scheduled?
Generally, most moving companies ask you to give a few weeks of notice ahead of time. During the busier periods of the year, which generally include the warm summer months, at least two weeks is recommended. For slow periods, however, such as the cold months of winter, a week’s notice will suffice. Of course, by planning ahead and securing our moving company for your big relocation day weeks in advance, you ensure the entire move is accomplished easier and far simpler than if you were to wait. More time allows us to plan the entire move with you, ensuring nothing is left behind and all of the little details are taken care of. These little details can really matter more than most homeowners actually consider. Do not wait until the last minute. The more time you can offer our experienced movers, the more likely they are to remain on schedule and complete the job proficiently.
Are my things and my home insured during the move?
Yes, of course! American Way Van and Storage offers numerous options to insure all of the items during your relocation process. Depending on the option you select and sign into your contract, coverage will be in place for most, if not all, of your items.
According to Ohio law, all moving companies are required to take care of the value of all goods being transported. To accomplish this goal, we offer Released Value, Declared Value, and Full Value Coverage. Each one varies and has specific limits to consider when selecting a coverage plan for your home’s goods and furniture. However, you may not always require full insurance coverage. Depending on the type of move, a smaller coverage plan may benefit you the most. Moving across town, for example, does not require a large expensive coverage plan. We will help determine which plan would work best for you, though the choice is ultimately yours to make.
