A Couple of Movers

A Couple of Movers & Moving Company

There are times you are running on a tight budget and need to make that important move to your new location, you don't want to contact full service moving companies, you only need a couple of movers to help you with moving items. That’s where we come in! Three Movers is proud to provide you with a range of on-site and in-home moving services.

As a professional moving company, we can offer you hourly help to assist with heavy items, furniture rearranging, packing services, loading or unloading, and more.

Loading and Unloading Services

Perhaps, you already have the transportation but just need the movers. In this case, you can select our loading and unloading labor services. With this labor-only service, you provide the rental truck, container, transport vehicle, or your own personal cars, and we help you load and unload it with all of your personal belongings. This option can save you the hassle of doing the heavy lifting yourself, effectively saving you money in the process and speeding up your relocation.

House delivery and local residence patrol

With our dedicated loading and unloading services, you will receive help from our highly-trained and experienced team of moving professionals. They will handle your items with care, as if they were their own, while loading and unloading the vehicle you have provided. This type of help is billed by the hour and our movers can help you with as little or as much as you require!

Hiring just a couple movers from a professional moving company, like Three Movers, you’ll save the stress of handling the physical moving yourself, and save you a substantial amount of money on paying for the traditional full-service moving experience.

Moving Large and Specialty Items

Each move we execute is done with care and precision as we strive to eliminate the stress from relocating your home and possessions. Although we’ve handled nearly every moving scenario, there are some specific items that are more challenging to move and, therefore, require more attention.

Fortunately, our team of professional movers are skilled and experienced in the relocation of these types of specialty, ensuring that they receive the care and attention needed for safe transport.

Some specialty items our movers can handle for you include:

  • Riding lawn mowers
  • Pool tables
  • Exercise equipment
  • Hot tubs
  • Treadmills
  • Safes
  • Washers and dryers
  • Various kitchen appliances (refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers)

In addition to the above, we offer fine arts moving services, and also specialize in moving pianos. Our specialty item movers know just how delicate, expensive, and important pianos are to their owners. They are specially trained in the proper way to handle these items with ease and precision. From uprights to baby grands, and even concert grands – we can move them all!

In-Home Moving Services

At Three Movers, it is our goal to make a difference in our customer’s lives while moving them forward. This is something we don’t take lightly, as the value we provide does not stop once the move is complete. We also offer assistance with moving and rearranging furniture within your residential and commercial property. Moving a large or heavy piece of furniture up and down a set of stairs or rearranging your living spaces for entertaining purposes can be challenging. However, it doesn’t have to be.

extremely skilled reassembly services

If you’re unsure how to safely handle furniture or if you need a couple of movers to help rearrange your home, our team of professionally trained furniture movers are up for the job. Our experienced moving teams have the skills and experience to move items for renovations or help stage rooms, and would be thrilled to assist you in any way needed.

Even if you’re planning a large-scale holiday party in your home, our movers can haul all of that décor items including all the bulk stuff and arrange it exactly how you’d like.

Professional Packing Services

Knowing how to pack smart is crucial for any move, eliminating stress when you’re fully packed and ready to go when moving day rolls around. Our team of professional movers can provide with fully customized packing services to fit your needs – whether you need just a few items packed or your entire home.

packing all my stuff

When you partner with Three Movers, you receive highly-trained packing professionals that know how to carefully pack even your most precious and fragile belongings. We can pack as little or as much as you need for your next home or business relocation. Or, even if you aren’t moving and are packing to a storage facility, our packing services are still available to you. Our moving teams are not only experts in home relocations, they also have extensive packing training to ensure that your possessions are safe and secure throughout the entire moving process.

Alternatively, if you’re leaning towards packing your belongings yourself, we also offer packing supplies. We can provide you with all of the necessary packing materials such as packing tape, bubble wrap, specialty boxes, heavy-duty boxes, and everything else you may need to get the job done right.

Why Hire Movers?

Believe or not, there are some moving companies that can offer you just a couple of movers, without the rental truck. The obvious benefit here is that it’s much more affordable to provide your own truck or storage container than it is to hire a full-service moving company. Contrary to popular belief, enlisting the help of your friends to move you isn’t always the best option.

Assuming that they actually show up on move day, you’re likely going to be dealing with people who are unskilled in the safe and proper way to move most of your things.

Aside from saving money, there are a number of other reasons why you may want to hire just the moving labor for your next relocation.

  • Reduced risk of damage. When you have experienced, professional movers moving your stuff, there is a lower probability of damaged or broken items. Your movers should know how to pack and load correctly so nothing shifts during transport.
  • No heavy lifting. This is, arguably, the most popular reason why people choose to hire movers. All of the heavy lifting is simply left to the professionals.
  • Maximize usable space. As previously mentioned, professional movers know how to properly pack and load a moving truck. They will puzzle your belongings together like it’s a game of Tetris. By hiring movers, you will be able to utilize all of the available rented space and likely reduce the amount you need to purchase.
  • Movers are quicker. Undeniably, a couple of professional movers will load and unload your moving truck much quicker than just a handful of your friends. You can spend less time handling your furniture and more time getting settled into your new home.

Where to Get A Couple of Movers

When you need only a couple of movers, its possible to want to look around for just anyone or group of people that claims to be movers. However, trying to save cost does not mean that you should hire just anyone to help with your move.

The good news is you can still hire professional movers without having to pay more than necessary when you hire movers from a local moving company or long distance service. These companies can sign such a contract and provide only the services that you request for. When you hire movers from established companies, it will give you peace of mind, knowing that you are dealing with experienced people and saving cost at the same time.

When you hire a couple of movers, you are only required to pay for labor and nothing else, so let the movers be explicit about which contract they want you to sign. People have had nasty experiences with some so called movers such like one that a truck driver locked the truck on arrival because of certain demands that were not part of the initial agreement.

FAQs About Hiring A Couple of Movers

How Many Movers Do I Need?

The number of movers you will need will depend on the size of your home, the weight and volume of your property, the time you have to move.

For a loading and unloading situation, you will typically need 2 movers for a space of 400 to 1000 sq. ft. for 4 – 6 hours of move. A space of 1,100 to 2,000 sq. ft. Will require 3 movers for 8 – 10 hours. A space of 2,000 to 3,000+ sq. ft. will require 4 – 6 movers within 12 – 16 hours.

It takes 2-3 hours to move a one bedroom, 3-5 hours for two-bedroom and about 7 hours for 3 – 5 bedrooms. So if you want the moving to be faster, you can always get an additional hand, especially when the size of your move is large or when moving specialty items.

How much do a couple of movers cost

Expect to spend a minimum of $200 to $400 on two movers working for for hours on local move.

Does it happen that movers don't show up

When dealing with professionals, it hardly happens that movers will not show up. However, you can always avoid this situation by making sure you communicate with the movers days leading up to the planned move.

What If Movers Are Running Late?

If you notice movers are running late, call to be sure what might have gone wrong. They might have a technical problem, got stuck in traffic or missed your house address.

What if the Movers Damage Something?

Moving companies provide some level of coverage which guarantees that you can be reimbursed for a damaged or lost item. That is why it’s a good thing to work with established companies even when only hiring a couple of movers.
