  Labor Only Service

What is labor only?
Labor only is when you already have a moving truck and just need the man power of professional movers to help assist with the loading and or unloading. This also includes the need to hire a crew to come out and re-arrange furniture within the home.


Uhauls tend to be the method of choice for personal use. With more and more locations popping up everyday there seems to be a uhaul within a few miles of where everyone lives.
  Give yourself plenty of time to pick up your uhaul, average pick up time is 30-45mins. Dont forget about the night drop option either. As long as your truck is in by morning when they check it in it still counts as being turned in the night before. Just make sure you park the truck out of the fire lane.
  Out of all the rental companies uhaul has the thickest and largest blankets you can rent. One down fall is almost every uhaul today has a gas engine, though it is more dumby proof for the general public diesel trucks are made for hauling and that is just what you're doing when you load down a 26ft uhaul and stick a car trailer behind it.

PODS, what a great idea. I dont personally dislike PODS however they do not hold as much as the company would like to admit. In fact on many many occasions we have shown up to a job where the customer will have a 3 bedroom home and only have "one" POD for the entire house and every time the customer says PODS told us this is all we needed?!!? Dont find yourself in this position, if you have minimal belongings for an average 1800sqft home 2 PODS will be needed. If you have garage and patio get a 3rd POD.
PODS moving blankets are half the size of uhaul blankets so make sure you double up on the amount needed.

Penske are nice trucks, a few down sides to one of these trucks vs a uhaul is they are not quite as tall on ceiling height. You would be surprised how much 6 inches really helps when loading a truck. Being 4ft off the ground means you have to put forth a bit more effort during the load and unload but thats why you hire us isnt it?
  Just like PODS the blankets penske offers are smaller than uhaul so you will need to order more to make up for the size difference. The plus side to these trucks is Pensky NEVER lets a customer pull off the lot with a truck that looks like it was just in a dukes of hazzards movie and when is the last time you saw a pensky broke down on the side of the road? This could be part of the fact their fleet of 24ft trucks are all diesel powered and are designed to get your load from point a to point b no matter what is thrown at you. Personal opinion - driving a penske is much easier then driving a uhaul. Uhauls tend to sway back and forth and sag more then a penske.

ABF.. Where to start. I know! - MHM does not cover ANY damage from a load where an ABF trailer is involved. I have never unloaded a ABF trailer that did not have tons of damage and the customers never seem to rent enough blankets.. If you are going to use a 28ft ABF trailer you will need a few hundred blankets and 4 guys 8 hours to properly load it to ensure a safe move. Personal opinion - I would prefer you have another company load this trailer if you decided to go this route. I would rather be known as the company that turned you away vs. the company that ruined your life.
