They’re all to be confirmed and as an estimation, since a job prior yours can take longer than expected. If the mover is going to be late, they will call and let you know for the time isn’t always fixed.

clock icon How long will the move take? clock icon

The actual time that a move will take isn’t calculable since unexpected things might happen, access differ and the size of the inventory. But this is just an estimate time that usually works well.

  • 3 bedroom unit/house: 5-7 hours

truck icon What size are your trucks? truck icon

We have various truck sizes and carry up to 10 tons. We will assign the most suitable truck based on the information of your belongings that we will receive from you. But if you think that larger trucks are better, it isn’t always true. It’s true that larger trucks will reduce the number of vehicles used, but it will decrease the moving speed. But these things can be discussed over the phone or during the appointment with our onsite estimator.

pet icon I have a pet, what should I do? pet icon

Although moving can be exciting and enjoyable, it can also be stressful and tiring. This applies to your pet as well, so it’s better if you arrange a pet sitter to look after them on this big day.


If you have a piano, we can easily help you with it. However, it’s extremely important to know further details from the access and the type of piano you have, so then we can check our availability, capability and give you the right quote.

Items not allowed from Doctor Move teams to take:

Some items can be easily transported from our teams. However, some other items can be putting in higher risks for both yourself and the team. Such gas bottles and water tanks.

Do I need to empty my furniture, pot plants and the fridge?

Cases are different in each situation. Our recommendation is to always have as empty as possible so it can make the job safer and easier on the day. It will not reduce the weights but the risks hen transporting your special piece of furniture full of contents.

How do I pack?

Start by your boxes. Box up AS MUCH as possible, so it will be an enormous help for the team on the day to pack quicker and most important, safer. It will also optimize the space into the truck, since boxes are very easy to stack on top of another, different from bags or any out of shape packing.

Don’t forget that we can supply all your packing materials, at your door and collect them afterwards.

It’s time to get moving
