Residential Moving

Moving into a new home is an incredibly exciting and sometimes overwhelming process. With our residential moving services, the highly-trained, professional staff here at East Coast Moving can take some of the burden off of you during your move. We are licensed to move in all states along the East Coast: Maine to Florida, including Alabama, Ohio, Tennessee, and West Virginia!

Hourly Moving Service

If you’re moving to a new location that is less than 35 miles from your original loading address, and stay within North Carolina, then your move with East Coast Moving will be billed hourly. Our standard options are:

  • 2 movers with a truck and necessary equipment billed at $110.00/hour. Charges are calculated in increments of 15 minutes. The final price will include up to 1.0 hour drive time to the residence and back.*
  • 3 movers with a truck and necessary equipment billed at $155.00/hour. Charges are calculated in increments of 15 minutes. The final price will include up to 1.0 hour drive time to the residence and back.*
  • 4 movers with a truck and necessary equipment billed at $200.00/hour. Charges are calculated in increments of 15 minutes. The final price will include up to 1.0 hour drive time to the residence and back.*

Weight/Distance Moving Service

If your move is more than 35 miles from your original load address to the final unload address, then your move is billed by tariff. This will be calculated based on the weight of everything being moved and the total distance transported.* More information about these types of moves can be found by clicking on the sections below.

*These are baseline prices for our services. Other factors such as especially bulky items, long carry/walk, specialty items, or our professional packing services may all add additional cost to any move. For the most accurate pricing, it is best to make your mover aware of all goods to be handled prior to move day. This way, your end cost will not be a surprise and your movers will be properly prepared.

Intrastate Moves

Moves inside North Carolina greater than 35 miles are billed based on the weight of the shipment and the distance between origin and destination. That distance is calculated using the current, official map issued by the NC Department of Transportation, or, in some instances, special Commission-approved mileage software. Any other online mapping services or odometer reading may not be used by movers for determining distance, although they may be used for direction.

The mover will weigh the vehicle prior to loading your household goods (tare weight) with a full gas tank and all the supplies to be used for your move. After the vehicle has been loaded, the mover will weigh the truck again (gross weight). The weight of the shipment (net weight) is determined by subtracting the tare weight from the gross weight. All weights will be shown on the Bill of Lading. However, if no adequate scales are available, a “constructive weight” (7 pounds per cubic foot of property loaded van space) may be used to determine the weight of your shipment.

Interstate Moves

The FMCSA’a regulations apply to motor carriers that engage in the interstate transportation of household goods. These regulations require your mover to perform certain services and provide you with specific documents. East Coast Moving is licensed to move in 20 States along the eastern seaboard!

A household goods mover actually transports your shipment.

As a customer, you have responsibilities both to your mover and yourself. They include:

  •   Reading all moving documents; Understand the type of liability you sign for
  •   Being available at the time of pickup and delivery of your shipment.
  •   Making payment in the amount required and in the form agreed to with the mover
  •   Promptly filing claims for loss, damage, or delays with your mover, if necessary.

Movers must give written estimates. Non-binding estimates are “approximations” only and the actual transportation charges you are eventually required to pay may be higher than the estimated price.
