Looks like you are moving about 50 miles.

Yes they charge travel both ways unless close to their base. I would say your best bet is to find a company that operates in both areas - so they use a PB loading crew, and in PB Gardens they use a local crew there to unload maybe. However, for that short a trip they might well use one crew for the entire job, since probably 1 day or less total.


I would say your best bet is to get quotes from good companies in whichever place you are residing in at the time of the move, and take the best price from among those that strike you as good companies - let them figure out whether they charge for travel time and mileage and such, and make sure the contract includes only packing/loading, transit charges (commonly by pound-mile), and unloading/unpacking - and let the bidders figure out what is cheapest for them to do. When you evaluate the bids make sure you are suing the same estimated weight tofigure your estimated totoal cost for each - because the final price will be adjusted to actual weight hauled.


Of course, if you have good homeowners insurance and some friends who would appreciate a pizza and beer and TV after the move, you could do it with a rental truck a lot cheaper - or for that length move, even by yourself in one or a few trips if you are up to handling the larger items yourself.
