The last time you moved without a moving company, how long did it take? The whole process: organizing, packing, loading the truck or container, transporting, unpacking… How long did it take? A week? A month? Longer?
Moving is a huge process, and dealing with the transportation of your belongings is only one piece of the puzzle. Consider how much else there is to do:
- purchasing and selling your new and old homes
- coordinating with inspectors, appraisers, and contractors
- updating your contact information with banks, businesses, friends, and family
This is all on top of your job, school, and any family obligations you may have. When do you have time to pack? The process can take weeks or months unless you recruit the right help. On the Move Moving and Storage is that help.
Our process can be as short as same day for small local moves, or a week for larger non-local moves. Naturally, every scenario is unique and there’s no exact amount of time we can tell you, but here’s the breakdown of our process and how long each step typically takes.
Packing: 1-3 Days
We will show up at your place with boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, and everything else we need to pack you up quickly and securely. All of your belongings will be put in a box, cataloged, and labeled for accountability and easy unpacking later.
Loading: ½-1 Day
This is where the magic happens. Our experienced moving professionals take pride in the speed and care in which your home is loaded onto our trucks. Not only do we treat your belongings with the attention they deserve, but we’ll have you loaded up as quickly as possible.
Our 30 years of experience shows. We’ll show up to your place day-of with manpower and all the appropriate tools, materials, and supplies:
- Door Frame Protection
- Floor Protection
- Moving Blankets
- Stretch Wrap
Local moves we do same day, no problem. Longer distances will take more time. However, unlike some other moving companies, we will give you an actual delivery day, not a delivery window. We will keep you updated on any unexpected delays and stay in communication with you along the way.
Unpacking: 1-3 Days
Just point and we’ll place your belongings in their new home. Now, just like with packing, the amount time this takes is dependent on the number of items you have. Smaller apartments or single bedroom homes can be done in less than a day. Larger homes or multi-structure properties will require more time.
Storing: That’s up to You
Most folks don’t need dedicated storage moving from one home right into another. But in the event that there is some lag time between move-out and move-in, we’ve got you covered.
We are proud of our new storage facility. It can hold your item no matter how large or awkwardly shaped. Our Storing facility has:
- Pest Control
- Climate Control
- Professional Packing and Preparation
- High-Tech Security
At On the Move, we custom-build wooden crates to the size and shape of your larger item, catalog them, and stow them away. The rest of your belongings will be stored similarly in crates and awaiting your return request. Just call us up and let us know where to deliver it.
You’ll probably only move a handful of times throughout your life, but On the Move has helped hundreds of Tennessee families move over the years. Rely on us and you won’t have to stress about your move anymore. Give us a call and we’ll talk more about your specific move dates, process, and timeline.
