TOTAL COST = (total labor hours + travel time charge) * moving rate + packing materials (if any).
E.g.: A customer is moving from Dedham MA to Natick MA at the rate of 135 $/hr. The move started at 8:00AM and finished at 12:00PM. The travel time charge was 45 minutes (that is 15 minutes to get to the pick-up location + 30 minutes to return to the office from the moving destination). In addition, 6 rolls of tape were used (we provide 2 free rolls, any excess tape used is charged to the customer).
LABOR = (Labor + Travel) * rate = 4 hrs. + 45min. (travel Time) x 135 = $641.25
MATERIALS = 4 rolls of tape * $3.00/roll =$12.00
TOTAL MOVING COST = $641.00 + $12 = $653.25
