How Long Does a Move Usually Take?

So, you’re either looking into or have hired a moving company to help with your next move. You may have a lot of questions on your mind, and we here at Augusta Movers totally understand as there’s a lot to be asking about. With such a large project, what isn’t there to talk about?  

A common question a lot of movers & moving companies get is how long a move usually takes. As much as we would like to have a set answer for every person who asks this, there is no true time period for how long this process takes. Why, you may ask? Well, due to the sheer number of factors that can affect a move, the time period it will take to implement it can vary exponentially. If you want to get a better idea as to how long your move will take, we are going to talk about the specific factors that go into effecting a move’s overall duration below. 

The Type of Move  

When we talk about the “type” of move you’re undergoing, we mean a few things. These things include: 

  • Is this move short distance or long distance? 
  • Is it a commercial move or a residential move? 
  • How many items are you moving? 

Depending on the factors listed above, your move may be short in duration or a little bit longer. It all depends on the scale of the move as well as the distance of the move.  

The Time of Year 

Regardless of how quick you want a move to happen, certain weather circumstances are under no one’s control. In order to maintain the safety of a company’s team members as well as yourself, a business will often postpone a moving date if the weather is too extreme (heavy rain, heavy snow, ice storm, etc). These types of incidents can cause delays and tend to happen more commonly around winter.  

There are certain benefits to booking a move during the cold months of the year (it’s much less busy so scheduling times are opened up more!), but let it be known that the icy weather can affect how long your move will take (especially long distance moves).
