HOW RAIMOND'S MOVERS MAKE IT WORK?
Move Time starts once movers arrive at your origin address and ends when movers finish unloading at the destination address. Job Time = Move Time + Travel Time. Travel Time- time added to Move
Time in order to compensate us for time spent traveling from our terminal to the shipper’s point of origin and the return trip to the terminal. 30 minutes minimum of Travel Time is applied to all jobs in
Greater Boston area.
to choose number of movers for each job, depending on our current schedule, availability, weather conditions etc.
to send extra men and/or truck, if we anticipate your job might be running past 5 p.m.
to send additional mover(s) along the day required to shorten you job time in order to make our appointment on time with the next scheduled customer.
Raimond’s Movers reserves the right:
Additional charges will apply accordingly (check our pricing page).
Please note, that additional movers will not significantly change your final bill, as the move itself goes more efficient with more number of movers and it is only matter of our availability to send ones.
Example (small 1 bedroom apartment with living room):
2 movers x 4-5 hrs. (@$95/hr.) = $380.00 - $475.00
3 movers x 3-3.5 hrs. (@130/hr.) = $390.00 - $455.00
4 movers x 2.25-2.75 hrs. (@$165/hr.) = $371.25-$453.75
Making a request. To book a move with Raimond’s Movers, please follow these steps:
Step 1: get a quick estimate on our website. This step takes less than 30 seconds and gets you in our system, while providing you with estimate, based on database average for generally similar moves.
Step 2: Submit a completed request, so that we can provide you with a more accurate estimate and check our availability for your move.
We strive to send out all estimates within 24 hours. Please expect an additional day for all weekend requests. Once we update your information, and if the day is available.
Step 3: You will now have an option to confirm your request. To book a move with Raimond’s Movers you should make a $100 deposit and receive a confirmation email from our office.
This email is important because it’s a proof of your reservation with us and also provides you with some very important information regarding your move and Raimond’s Movers policies.
What does your move start time mean? If you have scheduled a morning appointment for 8am or 9am then your moving crew should arrive at the scheduled time (sometimes they are a few minutes
early or late depending on weather or traffic). If your move is scheduled for a late morning or an afternoon time slot then we have provided you with an estimated 3-4 hour window for your start time.
However, due to the fact that the crew will be coming directly from another move this estimated time is subject to change. Once the crew finishes their first job(s) we will call to let you know more precise
arrival time. We do not expect you to sit around waiting for your movers for hours, but we do ask that you please remain flexible on your move day. If it becomes evident that your crew is running late for
the day Raimond’s Movers will call to let you know. The most common reason for a delay is incorrect or incomplete information provided by a customer. This is why your confirmation email asks that you
double check your inventory list and let us know if there are any changes by the day before your move. We also need to know if any item(s) require significant disassembly. If the movers show up to a move
and find that they are now being asked to move 4 extra pieces of furniture and 15 additional boxes then they will finish their move later than anticipated. If a wall unit has dozens of pieces of hardware and
requires 40 minutes of disassembly then the movers will be behind schedule. Every extra item or service takes time, and while we are happy to assist you with whatever you need we do ask that you provide
us with that information beforehand to avoid inconveniencing other customers
Payment methods. For local moves, you must pay in full at completion of your job. Unless otherwise arranged, payment for local moves is due at the end of the job by cash, check, or VISA/MC/DISCOVER/
/AMEX. If you wish to pay by credit card, we charge 3% convenience fee. Payment for loading rental trucks, self-moving containers is by cash or credit card only, no personal checks.
LABOR ONLY SERVICES
We charge the same hourly rate for labor only move, as our regular moves. Even though you do not need a truck for your service, we usually send one anyway. Truck is not only the source of the
transportation for our team to get to your address. It is fully equipped with all the necessary tools and equipment, that movers might need to make service on a professional level and without any troubles.
On the truck guys have all size of boxes, tape, shrink-wrap, mattress bags, ratchet straps, dollies, ramps and, of course, all the necessary tools, required for disassembly of any furniture. It is obvious, that
the move goes more efficient time-wise with the right equipment, no to mention, that sometimes it is impossible to provide the service without right gadget and tools.
We can provide all of the moving labor necessary to load and unload your moving truck, POD. Whether you rent a U-Haul, Penske, Ryder, Enterprise, or Budget, you can enjoy a professional move
without the price... and the strain! Raimond’s Movers will meet you and load and/or unload your truck! This service is also available for ABF, U-Pack trailers, Door-To-Door and PODS storage containers.

Movers handle the job. Whether you need to move one item or an entire room, we will do as much or as little as needed…and with the same premium level service as when you’re changing addresses.

SINGLE ITEM MOVE
It could be anything. But whatever it is, the item you need to move is just too much for you. That is why Raimond’s Movers will come out and take on the task. If you have one item that need to be moved
around town – we can help. We offer lower minimum charge (only 1.5 hours minimum, including travel time) to make single item moves more affordable.
In general, there is a limit to what can be physically hoisted. Only so many movers can fit in the general landing. Not to mention, exceeding a certain weight can cause railings or window frames to buckle
and cause damage to the structure. If any items need to be lifted to higher floor are in excess of 250lbs, the safest and smartest choice is to use a hydraulic lift or crane. Another crucial factor in planning
your hoist is finding the height that it needs to be hoisted to. Hoisting above a 4th floor is complicated at best. While it might be possible to have one or two items brought up to a fifth floor via hoist, it would
be best to use a hydraulic lift if there are more items than that being brought up to the higher floors. Each piece is protected before the hoist begins (using furniture pads, shrink warp and belts).
Having the piece properly prepared beforehand avoids damages during the hoist and while it is being handled upstairs. Careful, heavy padding prevents the belts from rubbing against or damaging
the surface of the piece. Heavy padding also protects the piece from scratching or tearing when going through openings (doorways or windows).
Please let us know ahead about possible hoisting involved during your move, as special preparation and assessment must take place.
