How many movers will I need?

Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, and you plan on hiring a professional moving company like Three Movers, deciding on the number of movers you need depends on several factors. The following tips and guidelines can help you in the decision-making process:

Take the size of your home into consideration – as one of the primary factors for determining the number of movers you need, the general rule of thumb is as follows:

  • 2 movers for a studio apartment or a 1, 2, or 3-bedroom apartment
  • a minimum of 3 movers for a 2- or 3-bedroom home
  • a minimum of 4 movers for a 3- or 4-bedroom home
  • a minimum of 5 movers for a home with more than 4 bedrooms

Take the number and weight of your items into consideration – while the size of your home is an important factor, no two homes of similar size have the same amount furnishings. Some individuals only buy the necessities (minimalists) while others prefer a more lavish home filled with numerous items. Consequently, the number and weight of all your items will affect the number of movers needed. If there are large boxes, more moving crew will be required as compared to if you have smaller number of boxes.

Take your budget into consideration – in most cases, the first thing you need to do is determine whether or not you can afford hiring professional movers. We’re not going to lie to you. Although Three Movers offer some of the most competitive rates in the industry, moving can be expensive.

Determine The Number Of Movers You Need

In addition to the number of movers, are there other factors that will impact the cost of a move?

Whether you’re moving locally or long-distance, it’s important to consider several factors when moving. The primary factors are the distance of the move, the size of your home, the total time involved, and the total weight of your items. Once we have determined these factors, there are several other factors to consider including:

  • 3rd party insurance
  • cost of fuel
  • date of the move
  • disassembling and re-assembling furniture
  • liability and valuation coverage
  • moving supplies
  • packing and unpacking services
  • storage (if needed)

By taking these factors into consideration, Three Movers can provide a more accurate estimate of what it will cost you to move.

Why should I hire professional movers?

Regardless of how far you’re moving, we understand what a nerve-wracking job this can be. Yet most people feel that this is a job they can do by themselves. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. It is extremely stressful to plan your move and pack everything and then move it on your own. Granted, we may be biased just a bit, but it’s important to consider hiring professional movers. Here are 5 reasons why:

  • Professional movers are iring Hmore cost-effective than you might think.
  • Professional movers have years of combined experience and expertise and have been thoroughly trained in all facets or residential moves.
  • Professional movers provide services that will save you valuable time.
  • Professional movers will ensure that your household items will arrive at your new location safely and undamaged.
  • Most importantly, you’ll have peace of mind when hiring professional movers.

Are there any items you cannot or won’t move?

For a variety of reasons, there are certain items that we cannot move legally or won’t move because of the liability involved. To avoid any added stress, you’ll need to make arrangements to transport the following items:

  • ammunition and fireworks
  • combustible and flammable items
  • hazardous materials
  • perishable foods
  • pets
  • plants
