So we kept waiting.Three movers did finally show up at around 10:00 a.m. And after informing me that three movers would cost $139 per hour, they got started right away. The actual movers were fantastic, working quickly and efficiently as they loaded our house full of furniture. When it came time to pay, I quickly glanced over the bill and saw that I was charged for four hours of moving, one hour of transportation and a 10 percent fuel surcharge. The bill wasn't itemized, however, and I only scanned it quickly to make sure that I wasn't being charged for any additional items. And since I had originally budgeted $1,000 for movers, I wasn't shocked at all to see a grand total of $974.98.
