There is no fixed formula to decide that how much time it will take to move as there are several factors that account for it. Also, not everyone has the same moving circumstances. Therefore, relative timing can be calculated but not a fix one. These are the following factors that can help to find approximate time to move.
- Number of boxes
- Quantity and type of furniture
- Amount of unpacked stuff
- Elevator size
- Hallway size
- Number of flight of stairs
- Time to assemble and disassemble
- Truck location. The closer it is lesser the time it will take to load.
While planning a move, it is essential to check if the cost and time of your move are close to the usual move or not. To find out the average move the best way is to take the average of a full house move and furniture move. Here is the list for you to calculate your approximate time of move.
If you do not have something that can get damaged or broken, you can just save your time, cost, number of boxes, and lots of space in the truck by not emptying those drawers and cupboards. However, it is recommended to lock the doors and drawers carefully so that they do not open while moving.Average Moving Time
|Studio/ 1 Bedroom (600sf)||2-3 Hours||2 Movers|
|2 Bedrooms (800sf)||3-5 Hours||2-3 Movers|
|3 Bedrooms (1300sf)||4-6 Hours||2-3 Movers|
|4 Bedrooms (1800sf)||6-8 Hours||3-4 Movers|
