Chances are you wouldn't know this type of moving service even existed until you needed it. Believe it or not, there are many different reasons why you may need to hire a moving company to move furniture or boxes within your existing home or on your property. In fact, there is such a demand for this service that, on average, 14% of our reservations fall into this category. Although a relatively small percentage of our overall reservations, it still translates to approximately 3,200 of these types of moves each year.
Although there are many different ways to describe this service, we internally refer to it as a "Furniture Move". Some other terminology for the same or similar moving services include: In-home move, in-house moving, on-site move and room to room moving. But why would you need this service? We've outlined the most common situations where an on-site move or furniture moving services are helpful.
Having new flooring or carpet installed? Is the home being painted? Home improvement companies typically do not move furniture, that means that someone will have to clear out the rooms being renovated. People often hire our movers to have the items moved to another room, garage or portable storage container (POD) outside while work is being done to the home. When the work is complete, our movers will put everything back where it belongs.
If you've purchased new furniture you probably need to get rid of the old stuff. Donation pick-up services usually require the items to be on the ground level or outside of the home. Not all furniture delivery services will bring the items into your home either. There are many occasions where they must leave the furniture on the ground floor or outside of the home. We can take over from there, placing the new furniture into the correct rooms.
Rearranging & Organizing
Want to move a sofa from the living room to the family room? Or swap bedroom suites between two bedrooms? Whatever the scenario, our movers are ready to help move furniture around your home.
If you're preparing to sell your home you may decide to stage it. If so, you will probably need furniture and boxes moved to different places within the home, garage or POD.
Eviction Clean Out
You've been granted the ability to evict your tenant and now everything needs to be moved out of the home. Whether to a dumpster or the curb, our movers can help.
Single Item Movement
You've got a massive armoire that you want to get rid of but it's on the 2nd floor and too heavy to move by yourself. We're here to help.
Apartment to Apartment Moves
Another very common scenario would be movement from one apartment to another within the same building or apartment complex. For example, your current apartment is on the 5th floor and you've decided to move to another apartment on the 18th floor. Or your apartment is located in 'Building A' and you want to move to a different apartment next door in 'Building B'.
In both examples a truck is not necessary to complete the move, so a full service moving company is not required. Instead, hire our movers to handle the movement of your items between the new apartments.
Hiring Furniture Movers
When the time comes to choose a mover to provide on-site or existing home moving labor services make sure you research thoroughly. A low price may cost you in the end, whether by the quality of work provided, hidden fees or the reliability and reputation of the company. Fortunately, you to find, compare and hire labor-only furniture movers on MovingLabor.com!
