How many movers should you get?

While the answer to this question will be different for everybody, we’ve decided to give you a basic idea of how it works!

Studio to small 2 bedrooms- 2 movers are recommended.

2 bedrooms to 3 bedrooms or smaller sized moves with long walks, stairs, and elevators, packing – 3 movers.

3 bedrooms and up – 4 movers will be the best. It’s our most efficient package, you practically getting 2 teams with 2 movers and it makes the move go very fast!

Getting more movers are usually more expensive per hour but you will save money in the long run when everything is complete. As the same time for smaller moves, it makes more sense to have fewer movers and save money

If you are not sure about how many movers you need we are always here to help! It’s our top priority to make sure you get the most money and time-efficient service.

Cancellation Policy at Qshark Moving Company

At Qshark we understand the stress you are going through arranging your move-in and move-out times. And sometimes things don’t go as planned. We all had a time when the escrow didn’t close, a contract wasn’t signed or we just changed our mind because we love an old place. That’s why your deposit is 100% refundable if you cancel or reschedule 24 hours before your move. It’s that easy! Just give us a call, send us an email and you will get your money back. Guaranteed!

How much to tip your movers?

First, we wanted to clarify and make it clear that the tip is not required and is not included in your bill. If any of your movers is demanding tips don’t hesitate and contact our office. All our movers are aware of this company policy and they will follow it.

Now when we have this out of the way, let’s find out should you tip your movers or not. The answer is simple if you liked the service provided and the movers where friendly and responsive, you should consider giving tips. If you believe the movers could’ve done a better job than we recommend to contact our office and leave your feedback. At Qshark your feedback is very important and highly appreciated.

What if you liked only some team members but not all of them? You can always tip individuals and not the whole crew ( but also keep in mind in most cases the tips are split evenly )

Any tips are highly appreciated and valued. In most cases, $20 to $40 for each mover is considered very generous. But it all has to be based on your experience and how much you liked your crew. Remember, the movers are getting paid for their job and tips are never guaranteed. That’s why we want our crews to meet your expectations and provide high-end service! And deserve tips by showing great work instead of just asking for it.

If you have any questions about our policies please contact us and we will be happy to go over those things with you!

The movers at work!

What truck will you get using Qshark?

The most important thing is the size. The whole truck is 33ft when the box size is 26ft. Max load: 20,000 lbs. This big truck is able to fit up to 3-4 bedroom houses, so if you have 1 or 2 bedrooms you don’t even need to worry about fitting everything!

It comes with all our moving packages and you don’t have to pay extra. It’s the same size as the biggest Uhaul, Budget and other rental companies’ most expensive trucks.

Also, it will include 8 Wardrobe boxes, 3 two-wheel dollies, 2 four-wheel dollies, 50 blankets, tools, 2 boxes of shrink wrap, floor runners and everything else you may need to move your furniture safely!

Note: our trucks have ramps to help us load everything but we do offer trucks with the liftgate as well.

Things to consider when you schedule your move

Moving services work a little bit different from most of the home services. Moves happen everywhere and every day, but there are days that busier or slower. You may be able to save extra money by moving on a weekday during slow seasons.

Days that considered to by “slow” are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Friday and Monday, Sunday are busier. Saturday will be the highest demand day since it gives your 1 day ( Friday ) to prepare and Sunday to settle down.

Moving arriving windows are always preferable, that’s why moving in the afternoon can also help you save money and get better availability.

Most of the people move at the end of the month ( because of most of the leases) and it’s a good idea to schedule your move a little bit in advance. The same will be for the middle of the month, especially for weekends.

To get everything together: Hardest days to schedule will be the end of the month Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the morning. ( Afternoon moves will be more flexible ) so if that’s your move day consider getting ready earlier and choosing your moving company accordingly.

Easiest days will be 1st and 3rd weeks of the month during weekdays, usually, it’s very easy to schedule and you can get movers even the next day.

We hope this article will help you get ready for your move and make your experience smoother.

Thank you!
