Moving can be a stressful endeavor. If you need help along the way, a professional moving company seems an enticing option to consider. And if you plan to do a smaller move, you might consider movers by the hour. We look at how this works, the services offered, and what to look for in a moving company. 

How Do Movers by the Hour Work?

If you have a short move across town, you might only need movers for a few hours. Many companies allow you to purchase moving services within these shorter time frames. In some cases, you might have to book movers in specific hour increments (the typical is two-hour blocks) at a time. Doing this allows you to take advantage of the services offered while not making an expensive investment. After all, moving requires many expenses. If you can cut costs, why not go this route?

Which Services Can I Buy?

Reputable moving companies offer many different services. They can include loading a moving truck, unloading and setting up the furniture at your new residence, packing, transporting special items like electronics, and removing junk. To illustrate, if you have old furniture but cannot donate it, they’ll take them off your hands. It saves you time relative to finding a way to remove it and discard it on your own. 

If you only have movers for an hour or two, you’ll want to prioritize your needs. Where do you need the most help? Doing this allows you to clarify what you want your movers to do. That way, you receive the most value for your investment when they arrive on moving day. 

What to Look for in Movers?

When looking for a moving company, examine these traits:

  • Flexibility: Do they offer a variety of moving services? Do those services best fit your needs?
  • Experience: How much experience do they have with similar moves?
  • Reputation: Do they stand behind their work with any assurances or guarantees?
  • Collaboration: Do they offer personalized consultations taking your needs into account? Or are their service offerings more standard?
  • Transparency: Do they provide transparency in prices? How are their costs compared to other services in the area?
