    • The five-ton trucks (24 x 8 (or 9) x 8 ft) are ideal for more significant moves such as 3-5 bedroom houses.

    If you are still unsure what kind of moving truck you need, you can call or email to find more.

    HOW MANY MOVERS DO I NEED FOR MY MOVE?

    The number of movers is one of the essential factors that affect the moving price or the moving quote. Besides, you need to know that more complicated moves need more movers.

    Answering the above question depends on parameters that some is as follows;

    • Are you going to move out of an apartment or a house?
      • For example, when moving out of an apartment, how far is the elevator from your residence?
      • Is the loading zone at the truck’s level?
      • On the other hand, if you move your house, are there any stairs to the truck?
    • How many bedrooms do you have in your current place?
    • What kinds of furniture do you have?
      • Movers can handle light furniture easier than heavier ones.
      • Some furniture, such as antique furniture, needs more attention to packing and preparing to move.

    And many more questions that affect the number of movers we need to hire.

    WHY DO WE NEED TO CONSIDER THE NUMBER OF MOVERS HERE?

    Moving is undoubtedly an energy-demanding job. If you have arranged two men and a truck for your local move and you think the moving process might take more than 6 hours, you need the third mover.

    As such, if you have already arranged your moving service with a team of three men and a truck and you think the time of your moving process might take more than 6 hours, you need to reconsider the number of movers.

    Moving trucks and the number of movers directly affect the time of your moving services and your moving quote or moving cost as a result.

    HOW MUCH DO MOVERS COST; HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HIRE PROFESSIONAL MOVERS?

    Vancouver moving companies have a minimum time charge depending on the different parts of the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley.

    What is the minimum time?

    The minimum time is when moving companies charge the clients as a minimum charge of their services. For example, a company considers its minimum time 5 hours, which means if they finish their job less than 5 hours, the moving company charges the client 5 hours.

    The rate or price for your moving services is different depending on the size of the move, the truck that you would need, and many other parameters such as;

    • How far are we from your current place,
    • How far your destination will be from our site,
    • what kind of moving truck will you need,
    • Suppose you would like to use our free-of-charge totes. These boxes make your move fast, more secure, affordable, and cheap. For more information about our terms and policies, please go to free of charge totes.

    FAQ: DO YOU CHARGE FOR YOUR BREAK TIME?

    Sometimes, the moving time is longer than the movers or clients expect. Therefore, movers need to take break-time.

    One of the questions regarding the moving price is, “do you charge for your break time?” Our answer is NO; we do not. We pay our movers, but we do NOT charge our clients for that.
