Moving can be a much more pleasant experience if you pay someone else to do it for you. However, you need to be able to put your trust in that “someone else” if you want to ensure that your items arrive safe and undamaged at your new location. And that’s where Eckert’s Moving and Storage can help, especially when you’re moving from one apartment to another in San Diego County. Our apartment movers’ team in San Diego is not only courteous and efficient when it comes to small moves, they are equipped and trained to handle your move from start to finish.
Isn’t apartment moving easy enough that I can do it?
Many individuals make the mistake of assuming that moving from one apartment to another is much easier than moving from home to home. Granted, there is less for you to move. However, apartment moving has its own unique challenges including issues such as broken elevators, cramped hallways, and narrow doors to get through. Before you make the decision to handle the move with the help of a few untrained family members or friends, give us a call for a FREE moving estimate.
Maybe you were able to bribe some friends to help you move into your first apartment by buying them some beer and pizza, but most individuals have far too many items to move by themselves. If you have numerous boxes packed and heavy furniture, you’ll need the experience and expertise of a professional apartment movers’ team in San Diego from Eckert’s Moving and Storage if you want to avoid a miserable experience and not break your back in the process. Our team comes equipped with all of the packing supplies and required tools to securely pack the boxes for transportation.
When should I book a moving company?
Trying to work a move into your hectic schedule can be extremely difficult. It requires a lot of logistics and planning as well as juggling everything to ensure everything goes as planned. Ask yourself the following questions:
- What items should I donate to a charity or sell at a moving sale?
- What items should I keep?
- When do I need to vacate my current apartment?
- When should I contact a moving company and schedule the move?
In order to answer that last question, the answer depends on the time of the year that you need or want to move. Just keep in mind that 65% of all residential relocations occur between May and September, which is commonly regarded as the peak season for moving. Ultimately, the decision rests on your shoulders. If you are looking for a budgeted move, off-season relocation is the best.
How much will it cost me to move from one apartment to another?
Regardless of the distance you’re moving, the cost of hiring an apartment movers service in San Diego will vary based on who the company is and a number of other factors. It’s always a good idea to have Eckert’s Moving and Storage provide a FREE estimate of the cost to move well in advance of the planned date. It’s also important to understand how those unplanned extras can add up and inflate the total moving cost.
Based on statistics provided by Home Advisor, the estimated weight of your belongings and cost to move them are as follows:
- Studio or 1-bedroom apartment – $200 to $500 based on 1,800 lbs. for a studio and 2,200 to 3,200 lbs. for a 1-bedroom apartment
- 2-bedroom apartment – $400 to $700 based on 5,000 to 6,000 lbs.
As you factor everything into the cost of your move, don’t forget factor in the gratuity or tip and make sure you have the cash on hand to cover it the day of the move. It’s the least you can do considering the apartment movers crew in San Diego is going to ensure that all of your belongings arrive safely and undamaged. The general rule of thumb is 5% to 10% moves of this size.
