Our Local Moving Process

Move Time starts once movers arrive at your origin address and ends when movers finish unloading at the destination address. Our process factors in this equation:

  • Job Time = Move Time + Travel Time. Travel Time – time 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 from destination to the terminal. 30 minutes minimum of Travel Time.
  • Making a request – to book a move with PNW Moving and Delivery, LLC please follow these steps:

What does your move start time mean? If you have scheduled a morning appointment arrival time sometime between 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., then your moving crew should arrive at the scheduled time (most times they are a few minutes early). 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 for your start time.

However, due to the fact that the crew will be coming after an earlier move, this estimated time is subject to change. Once the crew finishes their first job(s) and get back to our terminal, we will call to let you know 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 {{basicsettings.company_name}}, LLC 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 at least twenty four (24) hours 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 four 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.

  • To send additional men and/or truck, if we anticipate your job will require additional time or services.
    **Additional charges will apply accordingly (check our pricing page). Please note, that additional movers will not significantly change your final bill, as the move itself proceeds more efficiently with additional movers.

Labor Only Services

We charge the same hourly rate for labor-only moves as our regular moves. Even though you do not need a truck for your service, we usually send one anyway. The truck is not only the source of the transportation for our team to get to your address; it is also fully equipped with all the necessary tools and equipment that movers might need to make service on a professional level and without any troubles. On the truck, our movers have all sizes of boxes, tape, shrink-wrap, mattress bags, ratchet straps, dollies, and ramps and of course, all the necessary tools, required for disassembly of any furniture.
