One of the most common questions customers ask is, “How does it take to move?” Unfortunately, the answer is a little complicated. Move duration is tricky to predict. However, the following aspects all contribute to the time it takes to move. You can cut down on your move time by addressing these factors in advance.
Customer FAQ: "How Long Does it Take to Move?"
A variety of aspects impact your move time. However, these 10 factors most commonly affect how long it takes to move. Find out what goes into that calculation.
4. Number of Boxes
You probably can’t control how many boxes you’re bringing. Still, it never hurts to spend some time going through your belongings to see what you can sell, trash, or donate. Also, make sure you know the correct way to pack your boxes.
5. Amount and Type of Furniture
A reputable moving company can move almost any furniture, no matter how bulky. But it will certainly take longer. The same applies to clients with a ton of furniture. In those cases, your movers will spend extra time on assembling and disassembling.
6. Fragile Items
Save time by wrapping delicate or breakable belongings in advance. Also, consider bringing irreplaceable items in your own car.
Save yourself — and your movers — time and annoyance by arranging parking ahead of time. For apartment residents, this means notifying management.
9. Size Of Moving Crew
10. Access Issues
Access issues include obstacles like elevators, stairs, and hallways. If you’re moving into an apartment, these access issues are almost always a guarantee. While you can’t eliminate these structures, you can call ahead and make sure you’ll have the access you need.
As the saying goes, anything worth doing is worth doing well. You can’t always completely control how long your move takes. When in doubt, take the extra time to make sure your move runs smoothly. You’ll better protect your belongings and get some much-needed peace of mind.
