How Long Will My Move Take?

Hogan Moving |

how-long-will-my-move-takeIf you’re at the start of the moving process, you most likely are wondering how long your move will actually take. While we wish we could give you an exact answer right here, every move is different.

However, there are a few main factors that influence how long your move will take.


Where are you now, and where are you going? These two questions will greatly influence how long your move might last. If you’re moving locally, you might only need a day for packing and a day for moving. If you’re moving between states, you might require a day for packing, a day for loading, a day for transit, and a day for unloading. In fact, interstate moving can take up to 14 to 15 days. Lastly, moving internationally is a bigger process than simply moving between states.

Size of Your House

How many rooms are you going to be moving? In general, the more rooms you have, the more you will have to pack and load. When considering the length of your move, take a look at the number of rooms you have and the amount of items in each room.

State of Your Items

Are your items already packed and disassembled or will you need help with gathering items, disassembling and reassembling? The answers to these questions will also affect how long your move will take.

Moving Logistics

There are day-of moving logistics that are important, such as: the weather, where the moving crew can park, how wide are your stairs and hallways, the size of the moving crew, and more.

Number of Moving Services You Use

The number of moving services you use can significantly lessen the amount of time your move will take. At Hogan, we provide a variety of services to help you throughout the moving process. For instance, we provide packing and crating services for large items that might need extra protection, such as large mirrors, glass-top tables, or chandeliers. When you put the handling of these items into our hands, you can see why it frees up some of your own time and worries.
