Ride time is the transit time that is involved for all of the travel time during a local move. Like a taxi, moving trucks charge for the time that the truck is in use. That includes the time to travel from the warehouse to origin residence, he time to travel to the new residence, and the time to return to the warehouse. The billed ride time is based on actual time spent, even if delayed by traffic, accidents, or construction. Arpin of RI will never charge customers for riding time spent diverting to get food, getting lost, or because of mechanical breakdowns. Keep in mind that moving trucks and cars will have almost identical driving times on the highway, but large trucks will be 10-20% slower on secondary roads.
