How long will my move take

Moving to a new home is an exciting time filled with new opportunities, experiences, and memories to be made. One of the biggest concerns for anyone planning a move is how long it will take. The truth is, the time it takes to complete a move can vary greatly depending on a number of factors. 

How long will my move take

Key factors that affect move time:

  1. The size of your home: The more items you have to move, the longer it will take to pack and transport everything.

  2. The size of your apartment elevator: If your elevator is not big enough, this might add additional time to your move time as we wouldn’t be able to fit more items on the elevator.

  3. The convenience of loading zone to your apartment or house. 

  4. The convenience of the elevator to your apartment: If the distance between your apartment and the elevator is far, this will also affect your move time.

  5. The distance of your move: The farther you’re moving, the longer it will take to get everything to your new home.

  6. The level of service you choose: If you opt for a full-service moving company, the process may take longer, as the movers will be responsible for packing, loading, and unloading all of your belongings.

  7. Any unforeseen circumstances: Finally, it’s important to keep in mind that unforeseen circumstances can always arise during a move, such as traffic delays or bad weather, which can add time to the process.

Incredible service, very responsive, responsible and efficient. I couldn't have done our move without Debo and his team. They assembled most of my furniture in such a time that saved me hours of time spent settling and unpacking. Highly recommend A Mile Above Moving for all and any of your moving needs.

After hiring A Mile Above Moving and receiving their first class experience during my recent move from Ottawa to Toronto I will be looking to them first from now on for all of my moving needs. The price was right, the service was phenomenal and most importantly it’s a good honest local business.

Recently moved out of our townhome, and used A Mile Above on the recommendation from our stager. Debo and crew were excellent. Very prompt, very professional. They took extremely great care of our belongings and made sure we were comfortable and happy every step of the way. Their pricing is some of the best in the business, and was so much easier to understand and budget than anyone else we recieved quotes from. We're moving again this year and without a doubt will book A Mile Above again, and recommend them to all of our friends.

I had a move in Ottawa and the movers were very good and professional. They had all the necessary equipment to make things go smoothly and keep all my furniture clean and undamaged. There was also a very difficult to navigate staircase at my new place which they managed to get all furniture up with no issues. On top of all this they took an hour less than originally quoted, so I paid less than I budgeted since the movers worked fast.
