One way movers

Complete your move

Rate your Helper and experience.

Are you planning a move in the near future? If so, you are probably going to need at least a little help getting all of your items packed up and to your new destination.

And, while you could hire professional movers to do some of this work for you, that can get pretty costly, especially if you only need a little help. You could also beg your friends for assistance, which nobody likes to do, or you could rent a moving truck and drive it yourself, though this can also be expensive and leads to liability if you damage the truck in some way or get into an accident.

If none of those options sound very good to you, then you may want to think about hiring movers by the hour, a service offered through VanMile.

VanMile is a marketplace that connects people just like you with DC movers by the hour who work for affordable fees. You simply use the VanMile app to find helpers that can assist you with all of your moving needs. These helpers can work for as long as you need and can often come out and help you within just a few hours of making your request, meaning that there is no need to book weeks or months in advance.

Take Advantage of Additional Moving Services

While most traditional moving services will only help you with loading your items and getting the moving truck to your new destination, VanMile can connect you with movers by the hour in Washington, DC who will provide you with a host of other services if requested.

Some VanMile helpers are willing to assist you with:

  • Packing and/or unpacking your items
  • Moving large or heavy items into your new home
  • Delivering items to a storage facility or other location
  • In-house furniture swap

You can request any extra services that you require when you book your hourly movers using the VanMile app.

Upfront Pricing

When you do use the VanMile app, you will very pleased to find that the pricing structure is easy to understand. Your total price will be based on:

  • How long the job will take
  • How many helpers you require
  • The distance from your old home to your new one
  • Whether or not you request any extra services

The nice thing about VanMile’s pricing is that you will be able to see and agree to the estimated price before you book your services. This means that, unlike with traditional movers, you won’t be in for an unpleasant surprise when the time comes to pay your bill!

You are also able to cancel your VanMile services if you need to. You can cancel services free of charge as long as your helper has not yet been dispatched to do your job.

Furthermore, tipping is not required and will never be automatically included in your bill. You make the decision of whether to tip or not.

And, finally, when it does come time to pay for your services, the cost will automatically be deducted from your credit card. You will not have to deal with cash or worry about ensuring you have the right amount on hand.

In short, VanMile makes hiring movers by the hour simpler, easier, and more affordable than ever before, so as you prepare for moving day, give VanMile a try. You’ll be glad you did.
