The heart of our business lies in the art of residential moving.

While residential moving might seem like the most simple type of relocation, there are indeed many complications that can come into play when you are moving house. We at Professional Movers San Francisco know exactly how to approach your upcoming move in order to make sure that everything runs smoothly from start to finish.


to start?

If you are thinking of changing your neighborhood, it’s never too soon to start planning. Especially if you are moving with kids, things can get difficult soon, and with proper planning, you can minimize the amount of stress you are about to undergo and even turn your upcoming relocation into a pleasant experience.

Have you found your

perfect home?

Finding a home might be tough, priorities and needs differ and your luck with finding the perfect home can depend solely on the market. You might be looking for a peaceful neighborhood with good schools, or for a neighborhood that simply screams fun and entertainment. It all depends on your needs. Usually, the best way to find the perfect neighborhood is to sit down and create a list of potential places to live. Then, you can give yourself time to do the needed research. The time we live in enables us to find any information we need with one click of a button, and the factors you should consider when choosing your upcoming area are the following:

  • Public schools in the area

  • Price per square footage

  • Safety rating

  • Amenities

  • Accessibility to your workplace

  • A good reputation

When to start looking for residential movers?

Whenever we get this question at Professional San Francisco Movers, we always have the same answer - as soon as possible. Even if you haven’t yet set everything in stone when it comes to selling your old home and buying a new one, it is best to explore your options as much as possible. Getting a sense of pricing in your area, what different companies offer and what services they provide will help you choose the best movers and packers San Francisco has to offer.

Compare the quotes you’ve received. Most local moving companies are quite competitive, meaning that they have similar pricing. Some companies might charge a lot more, but you do need to verify if the reason justifies the price. What are they offering that others aren’t? The same goes for extremely low price quotes. Why is it so much cheaper? Especially if they are claiming to offer the same exact service as competitive local movers, they are probably cutting corners elsewhere.

How many movers do I need?

While every move is different, our years of experience in the industry of moving by the hour has never failed us when it comes to determining the best number of movers in your crew on the day of your move.

There is a simple way to figure out how many movers you are going to need on the day of the move, however, do keep in mind that this might not always be the case for each of these scenarios. Factors like stairs and heavy items might require an additional mover, or you might not be moving your entire home, therefore, you might need one less mover.

Usually, a two person crew is sufficient for a 1 bedroom home. If you are looking for packers and movers, meaning a full service move, a three person crew is advised. Typically, another bedroom means another mover needed for your relocation.

It is very important to be realistic regarding your move size and your moving needs. Disassembly, wrapping and protecting your belongings, loading up a truck, driving to the destination, unloading, unwrapping and reassembling is a time consuming process. In this business, we are often met with people who think that two movers and a truck can move just about anything in a few hours. If your relocation specialist is suggesting an additional mover, it might cost more per hour - but it will also take less hours. When you put the cost on paper, not only will it be a similar if not cheaper cost for you with that extra pair of hands, but your move will also be handled quickly, in a safer and more efficient manner as well.
