Do moving companies provide boxes and packing materials?

Yes, we do! Allied provides whatever moving supplies you might need for your move, including boxes, crates, packing tape, and more.

Do you have to pack everything before the movers arrive?

Not necessarily! You’re welcome to rely on Allied for packing supplies and services to reduce the stress and time it takes to pack your belongings on your own. That said, if you don’t want to incur packing charges, then it’s best to have everything packed before our movers reach your location for pickup.

How much time does it take to move with a moving company?

With a moving service, the average time for household packing will depend on the size of the home. Generally speaking, however:

  • Studio or one-bedroom home: Two to three hours

  • Two-bedroom home: Three to five hours

  • Three to four-bedroom home: Seven hours

  • Five or more bedroom home: Eight to 10 hours

How long does it take to move furniture cross-country?

Moving furniture cross-country depends on the distance that you’re moving. Taking into account that your furniture and other belongings are being transported by moving truck, moving within a state or to a nearby one should only take a few days. Long-distance moves can take considerably longer, anywhere from several days to weeks to get your possessions transported.
