Q: Do the movers take time off for lunch? Do I need to

A: Moving is a physically taxing job, and the crew needs time
to eat during the day. Since you are paying by the hour, any time
that they spend eating will be deducted from your bill. As for
providing lunch, you are welcome to contribute monetarily to their
lunch if you wish, but it is not required.

fit. Does that mean I'm all set?

may wish to shovel or rake or otherwise clear the access in
preparation for their arrival rather than paying your moving
crew their hourly rate to remove such obstacles.
