Comments Off on Why We Charge Drive Time
Are you wondering why some Brisbane removalists charge travel time while others don’t?
A lot of removalists don’t pay their staff while they are in transit, charging you door-to-door. How do they get away with it, you ask? Quite simple really.
They are charging your move at a drastically higher rate, disguising the travel cost. Or in most cases movers charge in hourly blocks and go slightly over into the next hour making you pay for a whole block of unused time. Ta-da… travel time. But in extreme situations, backyard operated removal companies, charge at a low rate without a depot fee and as a result, underpay their staff.
Think about it!
Imagine you work at the local supermarket and it’s your duty to restock shelves. Your manager agrees to pay you for the time it takes to load and offload your trolley full of baked beans but refuses to pay you for the time it takes you to push and heave your loaded cart, dodging shopping trolleys, prams and customers to the canned goods isle located all the way down the back of the store. Seems ridiculous doesn’t it?
Well it’s the same for our industry. Many of our competitors use subcontractors or backpackers to move you which usually mean untrained, uncommitted workers who have little interest in the wellbeing of your valuable belongings. If you are considering booking a move with these guys, not good news for you I’m afraid!
At Your Local Movers, we value the relationship between management and staff. We pay our guys as soon as they are in the truck leaving our depot. As a result we have professional, reliable and dependable staff who will execute your move quickly and safely with a big smile on their face. No job is too small or intricate for them.
