General information about labor-only moving services 

In the United States, a “labor-only move” typically refers to a moving service where the company only provides movers to load and unload a customer’s belongings but does not provide a truck or other transportation. Instead, the customer is responsible for renting a truck or hiring another company to transport their belongings. These services are usually used by people who want to save money on their move or by those who already own a moving truck and need help loading and unloading.

Labor-only moving services are popular in the United States for a few reasons. One reason is that they can be more cost-effective than full-service moving companies, which typically charge more for both the labor and the use of a moving truck. Additionally, some people may own or have rented a moving truck but cannot physically load and unload their belongings.

Another reason is that many people prefer to save money on moving by renting a truck and doing the move themselves, but still want professional help loading and unloading the heavy items. Such a type of service can provide them with additional muscle power but without the cost of a full move service which includes both the labor and the truck.

Also, many people who are moving to a new place or downsizing or need help with moving heavy items into or out of storage, a labor-only moving service can provide the help they need without the added expense of a full-service move.

It’s hard to say exactly how often labor-only moving services are used by Americans, as there is no specific data on the usage frequency of this type of service. However, labor-only moving services are likely used relatively often, given that they can be more cost-effective than full-service moving companies and that many people prefer to save money on moving by renting a truck and doing the move themselves.

It also depend on where you live, some places in the US have a higher demand for this service than other, but overall it could be a standard service used by Americans moving.

It’s important to note that many professional moving companies also offer labor-only moving services as an option for customers who prefer to handle the transportation aspect of their move independently.

Affordable labor-only moving services in Los Angeles county.

You can handle labor only moving on your own or having someone else do it usually gives bad results. At LA Moving Star we’ve seen those episodes many times. While moving may sound like a no-brainer, it really isn’t. LA Moving Star always provides a team of experts to properly upholster and pack your furniture, stack it securely on your truck, and ensure it reaches its destination safely.

Our team is always ready to be there on time at prearranged date and time. We conduct background checks and drug tests on all our movers to ensure people serve them with high ethical and moral standards, etiquette, and appropriate behavior. They treat your furniture as their own and you and your family as longtime friends.

LA Moving Star affordable labor-only services include all of the following: dollies, four-wheelers, high-quality tapes, blankets, shrink wrap, tools, and all the equipment needed for smooth, fast moves. If you don’t have enough blankets, we’ll use our blankets that you can buy from us during the move in case you would want to keep those after the move is completed. We always 100% guarantee that your belongings arrive safely.

We can expertly help you load and unload trucks, assemble and disassemble furniture, or rearrange heavy furniture in your home, apartment or storage. Remember to consider the hassle and time-consuming aspects of moving. Hire professional movers and enjoy your new home without lifting a finger. LA Moving Star offers affordable all-inclusive hourly rate packages to all Los Angeles residents. Hire LA Moving Star professional helpers and you won’t regret it!

We strongly recommend not hiring people on the street. There are many examples of poor results when day laborers picked-up from hardware stores like Home Depot. LA Moving Star, on the other hand, has professional movers with years of experience to ensure your furniture is upholstered, packed, loaded onto your truck, and delivered safely to your destination.

Another advantage of hiring professional movers is that they know how to handle bulky furniture around tight corners and hallways. Make sure all furniture is in one piece and undamaged. No need to rent a U-Haul trolley, as we use our tools to make the process more efficient.

We recently noticed that thousands of clients that move from other states to California, specifically to Los Angeles, use PODs, which are big containers depending on the move size. That POD is usually delivered to the client’s new home address. POD options are the most economically beneficial for clients in terms of savings. And we can help you unload that POD into your new place, assemble any furniture pieces or unpack all the boxes. Another scenario is if you are moving out of state and need help loading all the items into the POD, which we can do at the most affordable prices in Los Angeles Metropolitan area. Our professional movers will bring all the materials, tools, and equipment necessary for that kind of labor and only move where all the items need to be loaded into the POD correctly.

If you still have labor-only moving services-related questions, please call us today or visit our website for more details. Our moving experts would be happy to answer all your labor-only or other moving questions. You do not need to hesitate any longer and waste more time because you are in the right place where a better move starts here with LA Moving Star team.

HOLY MOLY! Where do I even begin. First of all, in the last 6 years, I've moved probably 3-4 times. I've hired through task rabbit, asked for recs through friends, and have even hired those amazing parking lot patrons you see at every Home Depot. Long story short, it's always been a nightmare. Half of my things end up broken, my walls get scuffed, I end up needing to help lift things and spend hours afterwards cleaning up what the movers messed up. When planning my current move, I knew I had some really tricky pieces that were going to be an absolute beast to move to my new condo. I decided to dish out a couple extra bucks and work with an actual moving company this time after my best friend Lauren raved about LA Moving Star for months.When I tell you I'm astonished. First of all, the price was very reasonable and the movers that showed up were actual professionals. I would call them moving artists to say the least. They strategically have so many tricks up their sleeves in getting massive items through very cramped and small spaces. Everything was wrapped beautifully and not a single thing was damaged. Not only that but they were SO efficient. They were hustling, moving fast, and getting it all done in a timely manner. Usually when companies charge by the hour, I tend to notice workers taking their sweet time in certain areas... But this company values integrity and you can tell. They actually care about their customers and it's SO apparent. My specific movers were Alex, Max, and Serg and the 3 boys were spectacular. This move was definitely not an easy one and they even had to completely disassemble and rebuild my three massive closet pieces by hand.I cannot reccomend this company enough and will be reffering everybody I know to use them. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Two great workers helped with moving my entire apartment. It was a big move with a fridge, desk, tv and bed. Fast, friendly, and would absolutely hire again. They handled the move up a flight of stairs as well
