Average Time Spent on a Do-It-Yourself Move

Moving is one of those life incidents no one truly looks forward to. Even if you’re moving into your first apartment or upgrading to a nicer apartment home, the process of moving can be overwhelming. Especially if you’re going the DIY route.

If you’ve ever moved (and who hasn’t?), you know the process can be…

  • Stressful
  • Expensive
  • Stressful
  • Emotional
  • Stressful
  • Hard Work
  • Stressful
  • Physically challenging
  • Did I mention stressful?

And, of course, it is very time consuming.

When you’re getting ready to move, you have to…

  1. Find a new place (with as much time as that take up it should take up the top five spots.)
  2. Find a new place
  3. Find a new place
  4. Find a new place
  5. Find a new place
  6. Find/get boxes
  7. Pack
  8. Rent truck/borrow truck
  9. Actually do the heavy lifting

Most people who move on their own say it takes a minimum of 5-6 hours up to a full day or even a weekend.

Here’s how Move For Free can help. We do the work to find you the perfect apartment home. We then provide licensed, professional movers (and their truck) to do the heavy lifting for you. So look at that list of moving duties again. All that’s left for you to do is pack. Doesn’t that sound much more manageable?

Best of all, the service is free. There’s no catch. Move For Free is paid a commission from an apartment community each time we place a new renter there. We then take a portion of that commission to pay for your move.
