Reserving parking space for the moving truck can avoid long carry and save you time. Double parking is not the safest way of moving, we don't encourage it. Remember that the closer the moving truck is to your door, the less time is required to load and unload truck.

What is double drive time?
Double drive-time is a widely used term associated with the moving industry of this particular state. The California Public Utilities Commission requires all licensed moving companies to follow this rule. The sole purpose for said rule is to protect both you as a client and us as a business by fairly calculating the times charged for the initial drive to your location, transporting your items and also returning to our place of business. The way the C.P.U.C. has come about compromising both parties, is to disregard the time spent en route to your first location, as well as the time spent en route to our place of business after the move. However, to cover the expenses of the crew’s payroll and other fees that may be associated, we are to charge double-time between your first, to your second location. In essence, this rule is to ensure that you are only charged for driving-time that you are a witness to and know to be accurate. This double-time is calculated at the regular hourly-rate, and also figures into our three-hour minimum.
Are my belongings insured?
Included in your rate: Basic coverage of 60 cents per pound per article. It ensures recovery of 60 cents multiplied by the weight of the item. This is a very minimal protection and your goods are probably worth considerably more. Additional insurance can be purchased through "Movinginsurance.com" for your safety and convenience. For more information about purchasing additional insurance for your belongings please contact moving insurance directly by phone at 888-893-8835 or 24/7 at www.movinginsurance.com.
