For most, moving is not the most enjoyable activity. It can be physically strenuous, time consuming, and financially unpredictable. On top of all of this, customers often feel as if they are at the mercy of moving companies. At College Muscle Movers, we don’t believe moving has to cause such stress and are constantly working to raise the bar. Although there are many ways we seek to break the mold, below you’ll find a few areas we’ve already made improvements.
Here are some comparisons between moving companies within the Twin Cities. We’ll focus on their policies and how College Muscle Movers has set a new standard.
The Move Crew
Hourly Rate: The Move Crew has increased hourly rates at the beginning and end of every month and they charge more for weekend moves.
Travel Fee: The Move Crew charges their hourly rate from portal to portal. This means you are paying their movers the same amount to move your furniture as you are when they are stuck in traffic on the way back to one of their locations. Subsequently, the overall cost of your service is not known until your final bill is charged and can depend largely on factors totally out of your control.
The CMM Difference: Our prices are consistent! We do not raise our prices on the weekend, or at the beginning or end of the month. You don’t need to worry about getting charged more simply because your availability only allows for a weekend move. CMM also has a flat-rate, distance-based travel fee so our hourly rate only takes place from the time we arrive at your first location, and it ends when we have unloaded at your final destination, not our warehouse. And, you get to know our travel fee when you book your service. That means when we leave your final location, you know how much your credit card will be charged.
City Moving and Storage
Movers: There are many online reviews from customers complaining that City Moving and Storage’s movers weren’t working hard the whole time, and beyond that, took excessive smoke or lunch breaks.
The CMM Difference: We pride ourselves on employing young, enthusiastic, college-aged workers. We claim no smoke breaks or backaches and we mean it. We may take a lunch break on a full day move, but the customer will never pay for any time we aren’t moving.
Hourly Minimum: Bosley Movers maintains a 3-hour minimum. That means if you need help moving a single couch or even a handful of items, you’ll still pay for 3-hours of service. There are other companies in the Twin Cities that require a 4-hour minimum.
The CMM Difference: We understand their are many different types of moving needs. That’s why we offer labor-only services with a 1-hour minimum, moving van services with a 1-hour minimum, and truck services with a 2-hour minimum. We’ve set our services up so that not only will our vehicles most often be best utilized, but also so that our customers aren’t ever paying more than they need to for our services.
Now that you are able to see the College Muscle Mover difference, don’t stress yourself any more about finding a moving service. Book with CMM today and see the difference!
