We have been helping people with moving for many years. During our work, our clients have had various questions. Therefore, we decided to familiarize you with the most frequently asked questions and prepared answers to them.

How much does moving cost?

This question is relevant to everyone, and everyone wants to know how much an apartment move will cost. The price depends on many factors. For example, TWO MEN AND A TRUK franchises are independent, so the final cost is determined taking into account the location of the old home and the new apartment. For local moves, payment is made by the hour. For long-distance moves, the price directly depends on the amount and weight of the cargo. Follow the link and find out in more detail what is included in the total cost of moving.

What determines the cost of moving?

Even if you pay by the hour, the cost of the same local move can be different. It depends on various factors:

  • how much time movers need to load and unload things;
  • how far the packed items need to be moved;
  • on which floor the old apartment and the new one are located.

These and other factors affect how much the move will cost. Do you want to minimize the cost of your move? Check out the tips we have prepared for you.

What do you need to have with you on the moving day?

Personal documents, toiletries, chargers for phones and other gadgets – these and other things should always be with you. Do not forget about the medications you take on a regular basis. You may need a change of clothes while traveling. If the transportation of your belongings will take all day or even half a day, you should take care of preparing snacks in advance. Are you moving with children? Then be sure to have your child’s favorite toy or favorite book with you.

How to find out the price of moving?

Usually, an apartment move is planned in advance and is not organized on the last day. This also applies to cost planning. Therefore, you need to apply for a cost calculation a month before the date of your move. To find out the exact amount, you need to tell us where you are moving from and where you are moving to, how many things you are transporting, and the total weight of the cargo. Knowing even the smallest details, specialists will be able to calculate the exact final price.

How do I change my residential address?

This question is very important. Often people forget about it when they are preoccupied with the hassle of moving. Therefore, you should also ask for information in advance. To do this, you do not need to spend time searching for and visiting a US post office. It is much easier to visit the office online. You will be presented with a questionnaire in which to answer the questions and provide all the necessary information.

How to pack your belongings correctly?

One of the most important, complex and time-consuming stages of moving is packing. You shouldn’t delay it, you should start the process as soon as possible. Not only do you need to carefully sort and pack everything, but you also need to label the boxes with numbers or names of things. This will greatly speed up unpacking, and most importantly, it will help you quickly find the right things in a new place. When you pack slowly, you will be able to think everything through, make the process more organized and less stressful.

What types of payment does TWO MEN AND A TRUK accept?

TWO MEN AND A TRUK accepts payments from all credit and debit cards. Depending on the franchise you choose for moving, you may be offered additional payment options for the services provided. You need to clarify this issue before moving by contacting the representatives of the company whose services you order for the transportation of your belongings.

Do I need to tip the movers?

Regardless of the complexity and volume of work performed, our movers never ask for tips after the move is completed. If you are satisfied with the work done and want to thank them for the impeccable services rendered, give them an amount that you consider appropriate for the work done. TWO MEN AND A TRUK employees can accept a tip from a grateful customer. Moreover, we guarantee the quality of the work.
