We offer a variety of options to our customers can choose from when they are ready to pay. Our acceptable payment methods include cash, credit card, debit card, money order, cashier's check, personal check (Payable to: Wee-Move Moving Company).
Local moving rates are normally charged hourly. The hourly cost depends on your choice of moving labor only or labor and moving truck.
Long distance moving rates are determined by several factors such as the estimated time needed to pack, prepare, load, unload, and so forth in either location in-town or out-of-town. We recommend a walkthrough prior to scheduling. Please Note: Even though we will gladly provide you with out of town moving services; we do require a deposit to schedule your move. This deposit will be used to pay our estimated costs such as hotel reservations, moving trucks or additional moving equipment, additional supplies necessary for your move (i.e. saran wrap, extra pads, etc.), wages, fuel, travel to and from, etc.
The services we provide are generally split into two categories:
(1) Moving Labor Only: Moving truck must be provided by the customer
(2) Moving Labor and Moving Truck: Exactly as described in (1) plus we provide a moving truck to relocate your belongings. Please Note: This option may be different for out-of-town moves.
Yes, we charge a two (2) hour minimum Monday - Thursday and a three (3) hour minimum Friday - Sunday.
Of course! First of all, we are grateful for your consideration in hiring Wee-Move as your mover. As a way to say “thank you” we consistently maintain offers, credits, and discounts to our customers. If you would like to find out more, give us a call or ask our mover.
Absolutely! Not only can we help you pack your box truck, but we can also make sure that it is loaded and packed in an efficient manner. We use our own furniture wrap, and if it’s an in town move, we provide the furniture blankets. Or if you are going to be taking the truck out of Laredo, our movers will gladly use the furniture blankets that you provide to ensure they are used appropriately.
#MovingTip : You can rent moving pads and blankets at your local UHaul dealership. If you need help, we work very closely with U-Haul and can help you find someone we personally trust and recommend.
Without a doubt, moving is hard; and we get that! A moving professional such as Wee-Move will bring the tools and equipment necessary to every moving job. Also, professional movers have already undergone a hands-on training and have passed a series of tests. Yes, if you choose, you can rent your own moving truck and ask your friends & family to help you move. And if you do so, more power to you! Consider your options, not only will you benefit from the experience a mover brings with them, but also their knowledge will speed up the move while protecting your belongings during their relocation.
A great way to start is by diving into Google.com. Some of the terms you can use are: movers, moving, movers laredo tx, moving companies, home moving, home movers, office movers, moving services in laredo, laredo movers, laredo moving companies, and more…
Essentially you can compare local moving companies that have the highest number of reviews and ratings. This will give you more or less an idea of the volume of work the company takes in plus, it gives you an insight of what to expect.
#MovingTip : if the moving company you contact can provide you with free moving tips on how to save on your move; or gives you the best advice even if it means not receiving your business, then it's safe to say they truly care about you as a person rather than a $ symbol.
As a personal opinion, the sooner you can, the better. Reaching out to local movers doesn’t mean that you have to immediately hire their services. It is important that you understand what they will provide first. Some moving companies may charge lower rates than others. Even though this seems “ideal”, sometimes it’s best to scratch past the surface. For example, if a company does have a low moving rate, make sure to ask the SIZE of moving truck they will be using and ask if their truck has a ramp. While you may be trying to save a buck, it may be counter productive because it only makes sense to consider what you will be receiving for the moving service you hire.
Yesterday! Kidding :) Truthfully, the best way to approach this question is by asking yourself if you have already decided on your moving date and/or if you have confirmed your move-in property’s availability to move in. Simply put, as soon as you know the date the new property is available, call to set up your moving appointment. Scheduling your move ahead will give your mover time to assign the right people for the job. Plus, it depending on how far ahead you called, will give them the opportunity to make sure there is availability to do the move.
#MovingTip It’s not recommended that you hire a mover the same day or next day. Trust us, this is chaos to a moving company. However, if this is your only option, you may want to consider renting your own moving truck. The reason I say this is because if a mover is already booked, it is easier to find the labor for your move rather than coordinate the moving truck’s availability on a moment’s notice.
Yes and No. A moving estimate is another way of saying moving quote, moving proposal, or order for service. They all essentially say the same thing; how much can you expect to pay for your move. Depending on how the moving company charges for their services, you can expect consistent rates when charged hourly. If this is the case, best practice is to be prepared ahead for your mover (make sure everything is already in boxes, all drawers have been emptied, etc.).
Another type of estimate is by weight and service tarif. This means that no matter how little or how much stuff you own, you will pay for the weight of the items being shipped. Ask your mover if you have any doubts.
This depends on the day of the week and month. Here is some context to better explain; most people work between 8AM and 6/7PM. Remember, traffic is heavy before 9AM, 12-3PM, and 4-6PM. Also, consider the time of the year and the areas you are moving to or from. Another possible factor is school for elementary, middle, and high school. As well as other variables such as down-town or other heavily trafficked areas.
There is no easy way to provide a clear answer. It really depends on the volume of items you have, furniture size/weight, customer preparedness (i.e. making sure all boxes are already packed, drawers and cabinets are empty, labeling, permissions to access properties or parking permits. There is so much that may impact the moving process; the answer is “preparedness” if you’re ready, the move will be done seamlessly.
Hourly Rates: Are charged by the hour. Wee-Move charges (local moves) at the time the customer or authorized representative signs the “Start Time” and cuts off upon signing the “End Time”. A minimum hours is required for any move but any time past the minimum hourly fee is charged in fifteen (15) minute increments. For example: If we worked 2hours and 15 minutes then that’s all that you will pay. Some moving companies charge the full hour past the hour. We strongly believe we should only charge what we actually work. Anything past that is just plain wrong.
Out of town Rates: Are based on the moving estimate you chose. For example: Some options can include loading plus a driver to take your moving truck to the new city, full service which includes loading/unloading and travel to & from, or any option that can be offered for your move.
Please Note: Moving a home is very different to moving an office because the furniture or items moved sometimes require special equipment and extra man power in order to move.
In-town hourly rates are due upon signing the “End Time” and out of town rates usually require a deposit and balance paid in full before leaving to the new destination.
This is entirely up to you as a customer. You may want to ask yourself how was your moving experience, did you have any problems with the workers, were there any damages, and so forth. If you feel that you received a higher standard of service than what you originally expected, movers will appreciate the amount you choose to tip.
#MovingTip : A good rule of thumb is $5-$10 dollars per hour worked (per mover).
No, you can choose to do your own walkthrough before the movers arrive. A valuation is essentially a review of your belongings prior to being handled. Our movers do this to detect damages that were not caused by our staff. If the mover doesn’t do the walk through valuation they can also take pictures as each item is being moved.
#MovingTip : Even though most movers will let you know beforehand, a great way to prevent any misunderstandings is by taking before and after pictures of your belongings. This will serve as proof in the event that a claim for damages is necessary.
There are two main reasons:
Yes, this is a broad subject that can be determined by the moving company directly or per regulations when transporting goods. If the mover determines moving certain items can pose a safety risk or considered as hazardous conditions, we reserve the right to decline moving any item we deem necessary. This includes but not limited to: human waste (of any kind), excessive animal hair or dander, excessive dust, mold or mildew, strong odors, presence of pests such as rodents or insects, faulty steps or staircases, non-cleared pathways, and generally any situation that pay pose a personal risk to our movers such as domestic disputes or violent/illegal activity present or left unsaid prior or during our arrival. Please Note: Hazardous condition fees will apply if we service your property without disclosing these conditions or if we choose to work past these conditions.
A moving term is the vocabulary used by companies involved in the moving service industry. Feel free to review our moving glossary in case there is something you need a better explanation. Or feel free to ask the mover directly to help you answer any questions you may have.
