Intrastate moves over 40 miles in the state of Pennsylvania, or long distance moves state to state, are priced by the weight of your shipment. Our professional consultants can estimate a weight to be transported by surveying the items we will be hauling.
Packing is priced according to the tariff for the type of move you are making.
