I am very elderly and need help packing up my things. How long should it take a company to move my 1 bedroom apartment?

Hire professional movers for the easiest and safest way to pack up your three bedroom house.

Professionals will help eliminate the gray area where you have half-packed boxes littered around you house for the weeks before your move. That's unsafe -- especially when you are elderly or concerned about falling. 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 three (3) bedroom apartment/house?

The general time frame for packing and loading up a three-bedroom would be about 6 to 8 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 6 to 10 hours.

All in all, you are looking at about 12 to 18 hours of packing and unpacking plus however long it takes to drive the truck to your destination. It should be finished in a day and a half.

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
