What is Double Driving Time for My Move in California?

Double driving time is a regulation enforced by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) that affects the calculation of moving time for local moves within the state. According to CPUC regulations, moving companies are permitted to charge for double the driving time between the origin and destination points of the move.

For example, if the driving time from your current residence to your new home is estimated to be 30 minutes, the moving company may charge you for 60 minutes of driving time. This rule is designed to account for the return trip of the moving truck to its original location after completing the move.

It's essential to discuss this regulation with your chosen moving company and understand how it may impact the overall cost of your move. Most reputable moving companies will transparently explain their pricing structure, including any additional charges related to double driving time, during the quoting process.

If you have any concerns or questions about double driving time or any other aspect of your move, don't hesitate to ask your moving company for clarification. Clear communication and understanding will help ensure a smooth and stress-free moving experience.
