Cross Border Moving Fees 

MoveCabbie believes in providing our customers with honest and transparent prices. This is why we opt for pricing based on a list of items rather than weight. When pricing by weight an estimate is rarely accurate, and clients are often surprised when their items are weighed and their bill is greater than expected. 

To start off, we will require an inventory list to determine your fees. Inventory lists help us to ensure accurate and transparent prices. We provide flat rate prices based on your list, so as long as your list doesn’t change, you will know exactly what you are paying for. 

Since our prices are based on a list of items, in-home estimates are often not required. We could however provide an in-home estimate to get a better idea of what your move may require, such as required moving supplies, the number of trucks, etc.
