How Long Does it Take to Move?

Every time you move, there are several factors that determine the total time it takes to complete your move. How long does it take to move your house or apartment? Here are a few factors:

  • How many boxes.
  • How much furniture.
  • How many odds and ends (unpacked items).
  • How many flights of stairs.
  • Size of elevator.
  • Long hallways/long carry out to the truck.
  • How many items need to be disassembled and reassembled.
  • How close we are able to park the truck to your location.
