I mostly charge by the sq ft. I tell people that if I move that big heavy item, which btw has not been moved since you set it in that spot on the carpet back when it was new, but if I clean that area, it will cost more because you are paying by the sq foot. Besides, that area has been unexposed. It's not dirty. I definitely will not move cabinets, dressers, armoires, entertainment cabinets, or tables with a bunch of trinkets and shit on it. Nor will I pick up toys like a Barbie Beach house or move your cardboard file boxes around your home office. Most common moved items: trash cans, plastic office chair floor thing, floor lamps, coffee tables, end tables, chairs. Seldom am I needed to move a couch. Never been asked to move a bed. I do have a bunch of furniture glides in my van if I had to move something by myself that was big.
