When it comes to moving, many important decisions have to be made. You have to worry about how many boxes and packing supplies you will need; you also need to think about hiring a professional moving company and the number of movers that you will need. Many moving companies offer moving services that include two, three or four movers. Customer service will get an in-home estimate to better understand how many things you have and then recommend the proper movers.
When deciding on how many movers you may need, there are some things to consider. The more movers that you add on, the more it will cost per hour. If you have lots to move, hiring two movers might end up costing you more in the end because of all the extra time or trips that are required. When hiring three or four movers instead, you will cut down the time needed to save you more money in the end.
How to decide on how many movers to hire?
When you move an entire household, you will have two or more bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, and a storage area. That indicates that you will have a decent amount of furniture and boxes. This could include a couple of beds, bedroom furniture, tables and chairs and couches that require two people to handle them down hallways and out doorways. Below are some rough calculations by square feet to get an idea of how many movers you may need.
1-2 Bedroom Apartment (680-1100 SqFt) = 2 Movers / 3 Hours.
2-3 Bedroom Home (1100-1650 SqFt) = 3 Movers / 3-4 Hours.
3-4 Bedroom Home (1600-2250 SqFt) = 3 Movers / 4-5 Hours.
4+ Bedroom Home (2100-3000 SqFt) = 4 Movers / 4-6 Hours.
Mansion or Royal Palace (3000+ SqFt) = 5-6 Movers / 8-10+ Hours.
Other things to take into consideration:
How many stairs?
Is there an elevator?
What is the parking situation?
Is there a winding driveway or sidewalk?
Are there narrow hallways?
How big are the doorways?
What is the ease of access?
