Services Typically Included in a Full Service Move
Regardless of the size or scope of your full-service move, Great Guys connects you with moving specialists that offer the following services to make your relocation a breeze:
Provision of High-Quality Packing Materials
It can be a pain to source all the proper packing materials to protect your belongings. From tape to moving boxes to furniture pads, there are many items required to move successfully. Packers arrive with quality materials to ensure a safe & secure packing process.
Disassembly of Furniture And Wrapping
Not looking forward to disassembling your heavy or intricate furniture? No worries. Our moving specialists make easy work of taking apart all kinds of furnishings. Plus, they properly wrap your furniture to ensure each piece is padded during transport.
Packing and Custom Crating
From oil paintings to curios cabinets, your household’s unique or expensive items might require custom packaging solutions. Movers assemble secure crates and carefully maneuver and transport your most cherished possessions with skill & care.
Our appliance movers provide the equipment and skills needed to get the job done right. Appliances like washing machines, refrigerators, and dishwashers contain mechanized parts that can be easily damaged. Specially trained professionals ensure stress-free shipment.
Loading Moving Truck
Leave the heavy lifting to the professionals. From bulky boxes to unwieldy couches, expert loaders manage the entire process. This service saves you from potential injury and damages while allowing you to focus on what really matters to you.
Whether you’re headed to a new town or state, it pays to hire reliable, licensed, and insured transporters. You might be asking yourself, who can I depend on to haul my valuables near me? Via Great Guys, you’ll have full confidence in your haulers.
One of the benefits of hiring one of our relocation companies is storage. With one provider, you can store extra items or your entire household securely in a self-storage facility or warehouse. When ready, full-service movers deliver it right to your home.
Once your cargo has arrived at its final destination, the moving team works swiftly to unload all the contents from the moving truck. The efficiency and speed are a big plus, helping you to get settled in faster into your new office, house, or apartment.
Reassembly of Furniture and Arranging
The movers have now unloaded everything. But what about your disassembled furnishings? This phase is where a full-service moving company really shines. Movers can reassemble your furniture, piano, pool table, and more. Then, with your guidance, they place it exactly where you want it.
After arriving at your new home, it can be challenging to locate household items. Your moving company can implement an organization system that labels, sorts, and tracks your possessions, allowing the moving team to unpack and swiftly put everything away.
A debris removal team properly and safely removes any unwanted items, saving you the headache of having to hire another outfit or rent a dumpster container. From disused furniture to garage junk, it can be all taken care of with one company.
Full Valuation Insurance
Have peace of mind that your belongings are insured. If an item is damaged or ruined during relocation, full valuation insurance covers the cost to replace it. Interstate movers are required to provide customers with full value insurance protection.
Reasons to Book a Full Service Move
Are you looking for the easiest, most convenient way to move? Full service movers and packers are the way to go!
Packing Materials and Expertise
Let’s face it, moving is hard work. You’ve got enough on your plate with work, life, and getting prepared for your new neighborhood, city, or state. If you don’t have the time or energy to pack your belongings properly, we’ve got you covered. Relax while specialized and experienced packers carefully wrap, pad, and box your entire household. They come prepared with all the packing supplies and knowledge, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
Furniture Disassembly and Reassembly
Have a massive dining room table or complicated work desk you’re dreading having to take apart? No sweat. With the help of our packing partners, you won’t have to break out any tools or worry about losing any parts (or stress over breaking anything). From the bulky to complex, your furniture can be easily disassembled, transported, and then reassembled.
Loading and Unloading
Sure, you could rent a truck and go the DIY route. But if you want to save time and effort (along with your back), our full-service option makes it super easy. From unwieldy couches to cumbersome pool tables, you won’t have to expend any energy. Our qualified moving companies make the whole process seamless, safe, and effortless for you.
Transport of Your Belongings
This may not seem like the biggest concern, but if you were to hire the wrong company, it could result in damaged items and a ton of regret. Fortunately, we connect you with thoroughly vetted and experienced transport specialists. Whether you’re moving across town or to another state, you can rest assured that they’ll transport your precious cargo with the utmost care.
While packing is an integral part of the process, what makes a full-service option so appealing is an unpacking service. Once you get to your new place, the last thing you’ll probably want to do is deal with a mountain of unpacked boxes. Let your movers know where you want your stuff, and they’ll take care of the rest. That way, you can focus on getting settled in sooner.
Packing Material Disposal
Once the movers have unpacked everything, you might be surprised at the mountain of discarded boxes and wrapping material. A move can result in hundreds of cardboard boxes and a mass of packing peanuts, furniture pads, and bubble wrap. Our relocation partners properly dispose of all of it, so you don’t have to deal with a massive mess.
What Will Packers Not Pack?
Though moving companies pack and transport most household items – furniture, clothing, appliances, the list goes on – there are a handful of things professional movers will not handle. Some of these items are incredibly hazardous, while they caution against packing others to ensure a headache-free experience. Movers and packers typically have checklists of things that can’t be packed, loaded, and transported. Armed with this knowledge, you can adequately deal with or dispose of these items. We’ve included the following lists so that your movers’ regulations don’t catch you off guard when it comes time to move.
When it comes to potentially dangerous stuff, movers will not include these types of items during packing. The following is by no means an exhaustive list. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact your moving company. Items that movers typically cannot transport include:
- Lighter fluid
- Paint and paint thinners
- Oxygen containers
- Nail polish remover
Policies can vary when it comes to transporting valuables. The best option is to carry these items with you during your relocation to ensure that anything of irreplaceable value, whether financial or sentimental, is safeguarded. Valuables can include the following:
- Fine jewelry
- Family heirlooms
- Collectibles (cards, stamps, coins, etc.)
- Documents (wills, stocks, deeds, etc.)
Food, in general, can be packed without any issues. However, do keep in mind that perishable items (especially ones in glass containers) can break during transit, leak onto your possessions, or develop mold during your relocation (as well as in storage). We recommend that you either give away or throw out anything in this category. Non-perishable food, on the other hand, does not present the same issues and can be easily transported. These items can include canned/boxed food, spices, dried fruit, and so on.
How Much Does Full Service Move Cost?
A full service move generally costs between $60-$75 per mover per hour for local moves and between $3,000-$12,000 flat rate for long-distance moves. Several factors influence the final cost of a full service move, including:
The Distance of the Move
The length of travel from Point A to Point B impacts how much you’ll pay. For example, interstate moving tends to cost more due to the fuel costs of transporting items a longer distance. Additionally, it costs movers to maintain the various licensing required to operate from state to state.
The Volume of Household Goods for Transport
The size of your home and the amount and weight of your household items can play a significant role in the cost of moving. Generally, the more stuff, the higher the expense.
How Many Movers You Need
Depending on where you’re headed and your moving requirements, you’ll need the right team for the job. The number of packers and movers affects the overall cost.
Time of Year
Fall and winter are the most affordable seasons to move (especially wintertime). Spring and summer offer better weather conditions, but these seasons have higher demand and prices.
Other Services You Need
Along with standard packing, loading, transporting, and unpacking, you might need specialty services. From fine art to pianos, Great Guys can help you find the right fit in no time!
