Moving labor to help load a storage unit
So, you’re having to do something most of us dread… you have to move. Moving often requires loading labor to help with the task. Moving can be such a hassle with all of the packing, loading and lifting involved. No one will ever deny that moving, whether it’s an office or a home, can be a little stressful. This is because of how much planning and organization is needed. Often, when moving, people have to get a storage unit. Needing to move into storage doubles the amount of work to be done. You need to move into storage. Then, when your new home is ready, move out of storage and into a new home.

Loading labor – what if I prefer to hire movers for 2 hours?
In a perfect world you will have enough time to prepare thoroughly. However, moving is a process that tends to be the least detailed. Especially when in fact it is best to plan for a minimum of three to four weeks. But in the real world, life happens fast and often at the last moment. When it comes to moving, it seems like no matter how big your new place is, we all end up needing storage. If you are going to need to use a storage space, you should pack the items to be stored, first. This way, whenever it is time to move, even if you haven’t gotten everything done, like breaking down beds, you don’t have to slow down the moving process.
Moving help by the hour
If you are using a moving company, time is most definitely money. In order to minimize the time it takes to load and unload your moving truck or storage unit, you should take care to pack efficiently and mindfully. The loading and unloading process can be very time consuming. Especially if there is no plan or system as to how to pack the truck or unit. In order to save a lot of time, it would be wise to plan out where certain items should be placed ahead of time. Doing so will help you to make the most of the space and also save quite a bit of time.
To be as efficient as possible, it would be smart to place items in the order in which they are to be loaded. However, if you are using a storage unit, you still must be mindful of the placement of your belongings in the unit as well. One major factor in helping to expedite the moving process is packing. Most people consider breakables and packing things according to their designated rooms. However, the weight of the boxes can slow down your moving process significantly if not distributed properly.
For a less strenuous and faster moving and loading process, you should try packing heavier items inside of small boxes. It is much easier to carry a small box weighing 50 pounds as opposed to a big box. Furthermore, large boxes are difficult to handle as well as load into the truck. Another way that you can lower your moving cost is by limiting the amount of items to be handled by the movers. Any items that you can handle yourself, you should go ahead and do so. Take whatever you can with you in the trunk of your car, and leave the heavier items and things to be stored to the movers.
Loading labor – need moving help for free?
Nothing in this life is free. However, if you have some friends that are willing to help. This will be as close to free as possible. If you decide to hire moving labor experts to help you move, make sure that the company you choose is reliable. When surveying moving labor companies, check out the reviews and ratings of your prospective company. This will give you an idea about their experience in handling heavy items and how they interact with their customers. You have to check the reputation of the company you want to hire so you’ll know the way in which that particular moving labor company serves other people and you’ll have an idea of what type of service to expect.

Before you decide on a company to hire, be sure to ask lots of fact finding questions so that there are no surprises later on down the line.

If possible, hire a local moving labor company. If you hire a moving company in your area, you will not be fooled into doing business with someone who is only based online or worse case scenario a crook. However, depending on where you’re moving to, a local moving company may not be an option. But, I must warn you that hiring a moving company, especially for an interstate move, can be very expensive.
Regardless of how far you are moving, you’ll need to hire at least three movers for the job. Many moving companies charge an hourly rate with a minimum of 3 – 4 hours. And, if you are moving interstate, it costs even more. By the time you pay for the truck, the movers and depending on where you are moving to, moving can sometimes cost thousands of dollars.

Loading help should really be your only need if you have everything properly packed and broken down. The real key to a fast and stress free move is preparation. Remember to follow these simple tips and your next move can be easy on your nerves as well as your wallet:
- Separate the items to be stored, from the items to be transported. This will allow you to save time by not having to decide what goes where at the last minute.
- Pack small and heavy. Items that can be heavy, such as books, should be packed inside of small boxes. It is much easier to carry a small box that weighs 50 pounds than a large box.
- Have a plan. If you are moving yourself, you should have a plan as to how you will pack not only the moving truck. Also your storage unit if you have one.
- Pack fragile items tightly. You want to wrap, let’s say plates, as you pack. Pack in such a way that the items do not shift inside the box. This prevents any damage and relieves any worry on your part.
- Have furniture broken down and wrapped properly. This will help the process go quickly and if you are using a moving service. Remember, time is money. Going over your allotted time will mean additional costs.
- Move some items yourself. Save the heavier items for the professionals and try to do what you can yourself. This will save time and of course, save you money.
