A lot of customers are aware of heavy item fees with moving companies however, there are those that are not aware hence why I am writing this article to completely transparent to all of our customers. Heavy items and specialty moves take a skilled mover and special equipment to pull off the correct technique to ensure the safe movement of your valuable possession.

We do offer piano moving at Eh Buddy Moving Ltd. We also offer heavy item moving in conjunction with your regular residential move. For example: It is standard in the moving industry to tack on an extra charge if they crew come across a heavy item that they are moving. The price will vary depending on the weight of the object. For instance, if you are moving a three bedroom home and you were estimated 6hrs 3 man crew and truck for x amount of dollars and then the guys show up and find out they have to move a commercial fridge weighing 500 lbs up a narrow flight of stairs from the basement you be sure they are going to charge you a heavy item fee accordingly.

That maybe an extra $200 to $400 depending on how hard it is to maneuver their way around corners and up a rickety staircase. Keep in mind these fine gentlemen are risking their health to move this heavy fridge and secondly, they have to move this appliance with the utmost care and precision.
