What is a DDT?

DDT sounds like you’re being charged double for drive time but that’s a mistake! The California Public Utilities Commission requires all moving companies to charge DDT on hourly rated moves. DDT means you are charged for the time between the old house (origin) and the new house and the moving company is responsible for the drive time between the warehouse and the origin. DDT actually SAVES you money!
