Get the Best Moving Services with iMoving

 

Finding a reliable and affordable mover is a key part of the moving process. It has become so easy for movers to create a website, advertise moving services and legitimize their business. But many of these movers offer a sub-par, overpriced service riddled with issues. It is why iMoving offers individuals, couples and families a real alternative.

 

The iMoving referral service is the best way to connect with the most reputable local and long-distance movers in your area. We also help you receive other services related to relocation, such as storage, car transport and more.

 

Offering a quality moving service entails a lot more than buying a few trucks and hiring people who can lift heavy objects. Reputable movers are properly licensed and insured. Movers within the iMoving network have at least two years of experience and very positive feedback from previous customers.

The moving and storage industry in the United States is one of the oldest and most complex. There are so many different companies within the industry, ranging from multi-million dollar corporations to a few people operating a moving service out of their home.

 

Whether you are moving locally, a state away or across the country, it is crucial to find a reputable moving service provider that offers the services you need. But most people do not have extensive experience about how to identify the best movers, and you may not want to spend days researching different companies, their reputations and the services they offer.

 

iMoving makes everything a lot simpler. Our referral service takes care of the legwork. We vet the most reliable providers of moving, storage and auto transport services, allowing you to select the provider offering the best price on the services that you need.

 

Services

  • Local Moving Services

    The moving company you pick to handle your upcoming move will depend heavily on whether you are moving locally or long distance. While some movers are equipped to handle both types of moves, many companies only offer local moving services. They are unable to handle a move over a certain distance. Movers within the iMoving network will specify whether they offer local and/or long-distance moving services.

  • Long Distance Moving

    If you are moving across the United States, or simply from one state to another, you will need to hire a long-distance moving company to handle the move. By understanding the nature of the long-distance moving process, you can get a sense of the logistics and cost associated with such a move. The iMoving referral service can help you find a reputable long-distance mover in your area.

  • Truck Rental

    Planning for a move takes time and effort – and you want to be sure that you’re doing whatever is necessary in order to save time and money on it. A truck rental is just one of many things that you may be considering as a part of your move – but what does it entail and how much does it cost? Let’s take a look.

  • Packing and Unpacking

    Packing and unpacking are two of the biggest things that you need to work out as you’re looking at your move and what it is that you need to do during it. There’s a lot to be taken care of and, as you explore what it is that you need to work out, you may find it easier and more time-efficient to go ahead and hire movers that can take care of your packing and unpacking services easily.

  • Storage Services

    Renting a storage unit for the first time? Hoping to store your possessions temporarily until you finalize living arrangements in a new city? We can help you find the ideal solution for your needs.

     

    Storage units are so helpful when you are trying to downsize your living situation, reduce clutter, move to another city or store seasonal supplies. iMoving can connect you with companies that offer storage solutions.

  • Special Handling

    Everyone who is preparing for a move has concerns about the large and fragile items that are going to be packed in the moving van or truck. How can you be sure that these items are going to arrive in the way that you want them to? Are there options that make it easier for you to have peace of mind?

     

    Many of the companies at iMoving offer what are known as special handling services. What are these, why do they matter, and how can you be sure that you’re doing what is necessary in order to get things done in a way that you’re happy with?

  • Commercial Moving

    It is not every day that you need to move your business. Whether you are moving into a bigger office, shifting to a nearby city or moving temporarily, there is a lot that must get done to ensure a smooth transition.


    Hiring a reliable commercial moving company can make all the difference. These companies have the experience, tools and skills necessary to ensure your office move is handled with precision and care. And iMoving can help put you in touch with them.

  • Moving Labor

    Not every type of residential move requires a full moving service. Some individuals, couples or families may not even want to pay professional moving companies for the use of their moving trucks. A small or local move may only require the assistance of moving labor. And iMoving can help you connect with the most reliable moving labor in your area.

  • Auto Transport

    Depending on the distance involved in your upcoming move, driving your car to your new home may not be the best idea. Long-distance or cross-country moves put a lot of wear and tear on a car, not to mention the time and effort of driving the distance yourself. And, the situation could be complicated by the need to move multiple vehicles. iMoving can help you connect with a reputable long-distance moving company that offers auto transport services.

  • Assembly and Disassembly

    One of the most difficult parts of your move is trying to sort out what it is that you need in order to get your large items where you need them to go. How can you be sure that you’re able to get them moved? Are you going to keep them together or are you going to take them apart before the move?

     

    There are many large items that you may want to disassemble as a part of your moving process. But, what needs to be taken apart? Should you do it yourself or is it better for you to get your movers to do it for you? Let’s take a look at some of the most common questions that get asked in regards to disassembly and assembly of your large items during the move.

  • Disposal Services

    During the move out process, you will find that you have a lot of stuff that you just don’t want to take with you. Whether it’s broken, unusable, torn, or just in your way, you will find that there are likely piles of junk that you won’t be sure how to deal with in a proper fashion. Will you need to take multiple trips to your local dump or recycling center to make it happen?

     

    If you’re looking at the options that you have available for dealing with your junk, you may be looking at your local waste removal service or trash pickup. But, many times they won’t take items in bulk at all. What are you supposed to do at that point? That’s where disposal services can give you a hand. Let’s take a look at disposal services and what they can do to help you with everything that you need to

  • Piano Services

    Those of us who appreciate music may have been brought up to play an instrument from a young age. While instruments like trumpets and guitars are easy to take to a new home, you have a bit more planning involved when you’re trying to deal with a large instrument like a piano.

     

    Specialized piano moving services are an important thing that you’re going to want to consider when looking at getting prepared for your move, and there are a few details that you’ll definitely need to work out. Let’s take a look at a few of the details involved here.

  • Wood Crate – Art & Antique

    You are what we would call a collector. You own valuable, one-of-a-kind pieces of fine art or antique furniture that will add a truly unique look to your new home.  

     

    During a move, items like this can become very stressful for you. Their delicate nature and age make them more vulnerable to serious damage and the memories, feelings and sentiment attached simply make them irreplaceable. Their value typically is priceless, which is why iMoving only works with high-quality movers who care about your valuables as if they were their own.

     

    For delicate or high value items, wrapping them in bubble wrap, tissue paper or old clothes and fabric may not be enough. Antiques and artwork deserve special consideration when moving.

  • International Moving

    Extreme excitement and anxiety are probably your best friends right now. This is a big life change and starting off on the right foot with a decent moving experience would go a long way in making your move easier. Making sure it goes right feels like the set up for whether you will start your life in that new country off right.

     

    iMoving knows how difficult an international move can be and partners with some of the best movers in the US and abroad to help create seamless moving experiences for brave travelers like yourself.

What is the Average Cost to Move a Three Bedroom House?

What is the Average Cost to Move a Three Bedroom House?

Moving is never fun, and it is definitely not something you look forward to. Most people look at moving with a sense of dread rising up inside them, knowing how much work is ahead of them.

 

As if it wasn’t already a daunting enough task, you may be looking at everything in your home, knowing that you’re going to have to pack it all up and move it away very soon. If you feel that familiar sense of dread rising up inside you, then you’re not alone. Thousands of people move every year, and they have to go through the same process that you’re looking at going through now.

 

To streamline your moving process, there is one thing you should do before you pack a single item in a box. Go through everything you are planning to take with you, and create a moving checklist for all of the essentials. This will allow you to have a visual aid of all of the essential items to you want to make sure come with you.

 

Once you have all of the essentials listed out and have a plan for what you’re going to do with them, you’ll be ready to start planning and coordinating your move. Naturally, one of the first things you’ll want to think about is the financials. If you have a three-bedroom home, one of your first thoughts might be wondering how much it is going to cost to move everything in your house.

 

The Costs of Moving a Three Bedroom Home

 

When it comes time to move everything in your home, you will be happy to know that is not going to be too costly to move your three-bedroom house.

 

The average price for moving a three-bedroom home is usually somewhere in the range of $550 to $1000 if you are moving somewhere nearby, in your local area. If you are moving out of state, though, or a distance greater than 100 miles from your current home, then you could be looking at a bit of a pricier move.

 

If you’re not moving locally and are going out of state, then you can expect to pay somewhere in the range of $1000 per room in your home and about $0.50 per pound when it comes to moving your things.

 

Planning on literally moving the house? If you want to move your physical house from its current location to the place you’re planning on taking it, then you could be looking at a price somewhere in the neighborhood of $150,000 to $200,000 for the move.

 

Whether you’re moving just the contents of your home to your new location, or literally moving your actual house, now you have some ideas of price estimates. It all really depends on what you’re planning to do, how much stuff you have, and how far you’re moving to. All of these things can be big factors in deciding the final cost of your move.

 

How Many Boxes Do I Need to Move a Three Bedroom House?

 

Another thing you are going to want to consider when you are getting ready for your big move is how many boxes you’re going to need to obtain. Moving the contents of an entire three-bedroom house is no small undertaking depending on how much stuff you have, so you will want to make sure you are well stocked up on boxes before the big moving day arrives.

 

When you are ready to start getting boxes, you’ll want numbers somewhere in this neighborhood, depending on how much stuff you have that you plan to take with you.

 

  • Around 30 medium-sized boxes.
  • 20-25 larger boxes.
  • 10-15 extra-large boxes.
  • 10 boxes for clothes, if applicable.

 

For a three bedroom home, these should be enough boxes for the average person. If you have a ton of stuff you are planning to bring with you, then you might want to add a few more boxes to the numbers in the bullet points above.

 

Where Can I Obtain Free Moving Boxes?

 

Most of the time, you shouldn’t have any problems obtaining some moving boxes to keep your stuff safe and stored during your big moving day. There are several places you can get yourself plenty of boxes for moving, free of charge:

 

If you can, try and start packing up your stuff well in advance if you plan on doing it yourself. If you don’t want to go through the very large task of packing everything up by yourself, you can always have a professional moving service do it for you to lighten the load on yourself.

 

If you’re planning on doing things your own way, however, you’re obviously going to need plenty of boxes to put all of your belongings in. Here are a few places you should check out when you are on the hunt for moving boxes:

 

  • Retail stores

 

Big retail chains always have plenty of freight to stock every single night that they have a freight truck come in. With thousands of pieces of freight arriving daily at big retail stores, the chances are high that they will have plenty of boxes you can have. You can even call ahead and let them know that you are looking for boxes, and they will usually be more than happy to save you some empty boxes when they are done stocking products to the shelf.

 

  • U-Haul’s Boxes Exchange

 

The mega-popular moving truck company, U-Haul, has a box exchange which is essentially an online message board matching people looking for moving boxes with people that have some boxes they’re trying to get rid of. The service is completely free to use and can be a great way to find yourself some free boxes for your big moving day.

 

  • Public schools

 

Schools get deliveries all the time and can be a great opportunity to find yourself some moving boxes. As with retail stores, if you just call up ahead of time and request that they save some boxes for you to come to pick up, they will usually be happy to do so. Giving away boxes means they won’t have to break the boxes down and make a bale later, saving them some extra work!

 

  • Liquor stores

 

Liquor stores can be a great way to get your hands on some decent sized moving boxes, since so many liquor shipments come in pretty good sized boxes. As with every other business, simply pick up the phone and call your local liquor store, requesting that they hold some boxes for you.

 

  • Craigslist

 

One of the biggest sites of its kind in the world, Craigslist allows folks to post things they have to sell or give away, trade, or just about anything. People can also put out “in search of” posts on Craigslist, so all you need to do if you choose to use Craigslist to find boxes for your move is to simply make a post explaining that you are moving and searching for some moving boxes. If someone is able to help you out, all they have to do is reply to your post and let you know what they have to offer. It couldn’t be any easier.

 

These are some of the best places to find some boxes for your big moving day, completely free of charge. Most businesses will be happy to get rid of the excess boxes because it will save them the hassle of having to break the boxes down later down the line. You get some free boxes, and the employees at the stores get a little bit of an easier day.

 

Everybody wins!

 

How Soon Should I Start Packing Before a Move?

 

The big day is approaching, and you know you should probably get started on packing up your belongings. What is the best time to start packing up before your move? How long should you give yourself ahead of time just to make sure that you’re all prepared and good to go when moving day arrives?

 

These are all good questions, but you don’t need to overstress yourself. The best thing you can do when it comes to this is to give yourself plenty of lead time before moving day arrives. The best bet is to try and start packing at least a month before moving day. This gives you ample time to create a checklist, identify your most essential items, and even sell or give away some things you don’t plan on taking with you.

 

If you plan on downsizing before the move, this window of time before the big day is going to be your best bet to do so. If you give yourself plenty of lead time before the move to pack up and get rid of the things you don’t want, you will save yourself a lot of stress on moving day, when all you should be doing on that day is loading up the moving truck and hitting the road to your new location.

 

Move Your Home With Confidence

 

With these nuggets of wisdom for your big moving day, you can move with confidence. Give yourself plenty of time, make sure you’re stocked up on boxes, and decide your moving plan of action. You’ll be moved and all set up at your new home in no time at all with these moving tips.
