Ayla PR Representative and Julia V.P. of Moving Made Smooth, Inc.
Often we get questions from our customers relating to the differences between Moving Made Smooth, Inc. (a moving labor company) and full-service movers. Simply, we provide the labor and you have the freedom to choose any type of storage or moving container that suits your needs from providers like Pods, U-haul, Penske, etc. This and several other factors can help you to budget your move more effectively than hiring a full-service mover that provides your vehicle.
Nebraska State Regulations
Full-service movers are regulated by the Nebraska Public Service Commission. The Commission holds these movers accountable for paying tariffs and are subject to minimum price requirements. These requirements inflate the price of moving for their customers. By taking charge of your move with a rental truck or storage container and hiring moving laborers such tariffs and minimum price requirements are left out of the equation.
Moving Made Smooth, Inc. schedules our crews by the hour so our customers can decide how much time and how many tasks we will perform. For instance, our customers can decide to hire us to load all heavy furnishings and load the smaller items themselves or opt to hire us for all of the packing and loading. We also offer the choice of different sized crews (two, three, and four men). In many cases a larger crew will be more time efficient, saving you money due to less hours needed to complete the move.
Moving Labor is Sales Tax Exempt
Our hourly rate is what you will pay because moving labor is not subject to sales tax in Nebraska.
No Unnecessary or Hidden Charges
Moving Made Smooth, Inc. will not be charging you for flights of stairs. We do ask how many flights of stairs for the benefit of our crew, but it doesn't add additional charges. Also the distance between your home and where the truck or container is parked does not result in any additional charges. Many full-service movers charge extra for flights of stairs and when your moving truck is parked greater than 75 feet from your home. To make things even easier on your budget, our movers don't start the clock until they arrive at your home or office. In comparison, often a full-service mover will start the clock the moment they leave their office. On occasions when we are traveling outside of the Omaha metropolitan area we may charge a small trip fee simply to cover gas for our employees. When these charges are applicable, you will be notified upon scheduling your move.
