Hire professional movers for the most efficient way to pack up your four bedroom house.
Four bedrooms houses are a large project to tackle -- especially when you're on a specific timeline or work long hours.
Professionals will help eliminate the gray area where you have half-packed boxes littered around you house for the weeks before your move. The professionals will come with the necessary packaging supplies and moving equipment to allow for a safer and faster move.
How long does it take to move a four (4) bedroom house?
The general time frame for packing and loading up a four-bedroom would be about 8 to 10 hours if the moving company sends 3 or more movers. The time frame for unloading your belongings at your new place would also take around 8 to 12 hours.
All in all, you are looking at about 16 to 22 hours of packing and unpacking plus however long it takes to drive the truck to your destination. Allot a day for packing and a day for unpacking.
How can you calculate the amount of time it takes to pack?
Actual moving time will be dependent on several factors:
- Amount of belongings
- Weight of furniture
- Number of movers
- Pace at which the movers work
Asking the professional movers specific questions about you move while getting an estimate will help you get a more accurate idea of how long your move will take.
Other things to consider that will have an affect on your move time:
- Fragile items that require extra care
- Unusual or large items, such as pianos, that require more focus and time
- Amount of furniture that requires disassembly
