The cost of the move depends on how many hours it takes. It is most accurate and fair to have an hourly rate. If you decide to take fewer things, or provide help to speed up the move, then you save money. If you need extra things done, such as taking apart a bed or treadmill, putting the bed together at the new place etc., that will take more time and add to the cost. Factors that affect how long a move takes include how prepared you are, whether there is an elevator, how many flights of stairs there are, time of day (e.g., rush hour) and how far away the movers must park.
