Some Useful Information You Need to Know

  • Based on averages from prior house/apartment moves.
  • Does not include travel time between load and unload sites, if applicable.
  • It can take more/less time depending on the amount/size of items each customer has, the number of flights of stairs, the distance to carry items from the truck to the apt./house, and climatic conditions.
  • We recommend utilizing a 3 mover crew anytime it's a "load and unload" with a 26-foot truck.
