Hello, and thank you for visiting Movers.com!

I can try to answer your question, but I'm not sure what company you received your quote from or their exact policy.

What you are describing is a stair carry fee--many moving companies charge an extra fee for hauling furniture and boxes up and down the stairs in your new or old home. From the information provided in your question, it seems the company allows for two staircases in your current home free of charge, but any additional stairs (including the stairs in your new home) will cost you an extra $75 per flight.

For example, if you have three sets of stairs in your current home which you will need things carried up or down--stairs leading up to your home, stairs leading to the second level, and stairs leading to your basement--you would receive two sets of those stairs free with your move. However, the third staircase will cost $75.

If you have two sets of stairs in your new home the movers will have to climb--say the outside stairs and the stairs to your second floor--you will also be charged $75 each for those flights.

This will add up to to $225 in stair carry fees: 75+75+75=225.

Make sure you ask any moving company you are considering for hire detailed questions about extra charges. You should consult this company about this policy if you are unsure. Their representative will be able to better explain their specific fees and how they are calculated. You should also always compare quotes from several moving companies before choosing one for hire to ensure you receive the best price and service for your move.
