Many times, people assume there are only two approaches to moving: either do it yourself or hire a moving company. While it’s true that these are the two most common approaches to moving, the truth of the matter is that there is plenty of middle ground between the two. Any service that’s offered by a professional moving company can usually be ordered on its own, sometimes referred to as a la carte moving services. What this means is that you can hire moving labor to help you with just about any part of the moving process that you’d prefer not to do yourself. One of these most popular a la carte services is loading and unloading labor, a type of moving assistance known as labor only moving services.
If you’re trying to move on a limited budget, this may just be the affordable solution you’ve been looking for. Let’s explain. When you hire movers to help you with loading and unloading, you can still rent a moving truck and handle the packing and driving yourself, but you can also forego the difficult task of loading and unloading boxes, furniture, and other belongings. This way, you’ll be able to reap the substantial savings of doing some of the work yourself, but without having the shoulder the burden of the most difficult part of moving: loading and unloading the moving truck.
Three Men and A Truck is a licensed, insured, and bonded moving company that caters to customers all over the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska. With local offices in virtually every major metro area in the country, there’s no job we can’t handle and no location we can’t get to! For a FREE estimate of loading and unloading services for your next move, simply give us a call at (888) 908-6496 and tell us what you need! No job is too big or too small!
Labor only loading and unloading services are still done by the same trained moving professionals that handle all of our moving packages, so you can rest assured that everything will be done with the professionalism and care that you expect from full service moving. Our loading and unloading moving services are charged by the hour so you can enlist as much as little help as you like to help you stick to your moving budget. Here’s how it works:
Contact the moving company (or companies if you’d like to compare prices) and let them know that you’re interested in hiring labor to help with the specific task of loading and unloading. They’ll ask you some basic questions to learn what you need help with and when you need it. You simply provide them with an idea of the size of your move, usually in terms of how many bedrooms, and they’ll give you a suggestion as to how many men you’ll need to do the job based on the amount of furniture and other items. Once that has been established, you tell them where you’re moving to or from, as well as the dates you’ll need loading and unloading help, after which they’ll provide you with a time and cost estimate to let you know what you can expect to pay.
This process is really not any different than requesting other types of moving services, other than the fact that you’re simply paying for one aspect of the move and doing the rest yourself—again, a great way to realize significant cost savings. Another benefit is that labor only services don’t have to be done in the same city or even the same region. Even if you’re moving across the country, Three Men and A Truck can provide loading help in one city and unloading help in another city without a problem. Tell us what you need, as well as when and where, and we’ll show up with all the necessary equipment and manpower to get the job done!
