The best full-service moving experience!
Full-service movers handle everything. They can pack your items, load them onto the truck, disassemble furniture, transport them to your new home, unload the truck, reassemble your furniture, and unpack your items. They’ll even provide all of the necessary moving equipment and supplies.
What exactly do full-service movers do?
Looking for movers who will pack your belongings for you?
Full-service movers provide all of the services that customers may (or may not) require when moving.
Although packing, moving, and unpacking are the most common, they are only the tip of the iceberg.
Packing services will include labor, boxes, tape, and paper if you choose to use them.
There are a plethora of moving companies that will pack your belongings for you. However, it is not cheap, and it can even double the cost of a large move.
Insider’s Tip #1: Many customers choose a partial pack to save money and ensure peace of mind. Only fragile items such as glassware, electronics, and mirrors are packed here.
Disassembly and re-assembly of furniture
True full-service movers will include in their estimate the manpower to move everything out of your old home and into your new one. They will also take apart and reassemble furniture such as beds, tables, and cribs. Keep looking if they don’t.
Auto transport is another service offered by full-service movers.
Depending on the size and value of your vehicle, it may be shipped inside the van with your household goods.
If you own an oversized or particularly valuable vehicle, a specialized car hauler is a better option.
Appliances must be disconnected and reconnected.
Many full-service movers will not disconnect and reconnect appliances and complex home entertainment systems for liability reasons.
They do, however, have relationships with specialized companies who do.
How much will full-service moving cost?
Moving is one of life’s most stressful events, according to numerous polls.
In fact, it ranks alongside divorce and the death of a loved one.
It can also be prohibitively expensive.
Here’s a quick formula to remember:
EXPENSIVE + STRESSFUL = DISAPPOINTED EXPERIENCE
Fortunately, the cost is determined by a number of variables over which consumers have some control.
First, how much money have you amassed over the years? The more you have, the more expensive it will be to move it.
Local moves are typically priced by the hour.
Getting across state lines?
Interstate moves are determined by the weight of your belongings, the services required, and the distance between your old and new homes.
How much time will full-service moving take?
How Full-Service Movers Work
If you’re only moving across town, a full-service relocation can be completed in a day or two.
However, depending on the size of your home, the distance traveled, and the overall scope, it could take a week or more.
Most apartments can be packed and moved in one or two days.
However, for larger homes, each can take several days. It may appear excessive, but entrusting your precious cargo to an overworked and exhausted crew is not a good idea.
The time it takes to complete a move can also vary depending on the season. Delivery times are longer during the summer months when movers are working at full capacity.
