Labor Only Services
LABOR ONLY SERVICES
If you are moving to another home or just need something moved close-by, you can rely on Suburban Solutions and our LABOR ONLY Services. A lot of people think that moving is a hard and time consuming process. While this can certainly be true, if you hire a moving company to do the hauling for you, then you can focus on the fun parts. Moving to a new house or apartment signifies a new change in your life so you should embrace it! To ensure everything goes smoothly when you move, here we answer some frequently asked questions about the moving process:
When is the best time to move?
If you have the luxury of being able to choose when you can move, consider choosing the off season during fall or winter. A lot of people decide to move come the summer season and because of this, moving services can be much more expensive. Plus, no one likes carrying heavy boxes in the sweltering heat!
How will I know what kind of moving service I should get?
The answer to this question all depends on where and how far away you are moving. If you are simply moving across town, all you’ll need is a local moving service. But if you’re moving a longer distance like across state or across the country, a long distance moving company is your best bet as they will have all the tools and services you’ll need for a move that can take days. At Suburban Solutions, we offer both long distance moving and LABOR ONLY Services.
How will I know how much moving will cost me?
Here at Suburban Solutions, we can give you a free estimate when you call. All you have to do is explain where you are moving, how big your home is, whether you want packing services, how quickly you need to relocate, and provide other pertinent details. While we can do an estimate over the phone, it can help to have us visit to take a look ourselves or send photographs!
What is a relocation specialist?
A relocation specialist is someone who will come to your home and take a survey of all the items that need to be moved. They will look at what you have — anything from bed frames to tools and clothing– and come up with an estimated weight and the corresponding costs to pack, ship, and deliver your items to your new home. Most moving companies use one of these specialists, and it is common to not know an exact quote of how much your moving cost really will be until they have visited your home in person.
What is a bill of lading and why is it important?
A bill of lading is incredibly important during the moving process. It is the overall receipt of your goods and the contract you sign with your mover to transport your items. You should receive this as soon as your mover comes and prepares your shipment, and it also covers the movers from any liability. Think of this bill of lading as a contract and you shouldn’t complete your move without it.
At Suburban Solutions, we believe in being as transparent as possible when it comes to billing and the contract, whether you hire us for a long distance move, short distance move, junk removal, LABOR ONLY Services, or something else!
Will my items be protected if they are damaged during travels?
Yes, you will be covered when it comes to damages up to a specific amount. You will determine this amount before you pay for your services, and this will be included in your bill of lading. You don’t have to worry about a stressful moving when working with our company. Get the process started by calling our office today.
What is “labor only” services?
Sometimes you need to rearrange things around the house or lend furniture to the family next door. This is exactly what our LABOR ONLY service is designed for.
Without the need for a truck, we can provide the same quality of service at a reduced rate and get even the simplest of moves done the right way.
What is loading/unloading truck services?
We like to give you options. Let’s say you want to rent your own trucks but don’t want to do the heavy lifting during the load and unload. Or, if you are having a pod or other storage device being delivered to your home, we can provide prompt service to load or unload your belongings for you. No matter what the scenario, we’ve got you covered! Our LOAD/UNLOAD options let you provide the transportation while we do the work. No matter how small or big the job, our #1 priority is YOU. Moving within the same building? We can help you here, too!

Very pleased with Suburban Solutions on a small move from suburban Maryland to suburban Virginia. They were on time and took care with the preparations and loading. The processes went incredibly smoothly. It was a good deal and I would use them again.Sarah C.10/12/2021
We had the most pleasant experience with Suburban Solutions. Our team was professional and handled all our stuff with care. They wrapped all our furniture completely in moving blankets and taped them all around. All our neighbors said they never saw a moving company wrap furniture like that and were impressed. Our on site manager (who was there from start... read moreBeth M.10/11/2021
We were moving a 2 bedroom + apartment from Ardmore, PA (suburban Philadelphia) to southern Sussex Cty, DE (Bethany area) with an intermediate stop at our storage unit. We had heard a number of moving company horror stories so we were a bit apprehensive. From our first contact by phone with Suburban Solutions, things could not have gone more smoothly.... read moreBill M.10/05/2021

I hate moving. Dread it. Don't like it. Run from it. My wife and I moved our family of four from Philly to the suburbs in mid-August 2021. It was difficult to hire movers. Suburban Solutions was the fourth company I called and they had availability. So I booked them. I was... read moreThomas T.9/21/2021
Suburban did an outstanding job with a recent pickup and delivery of antique furniture to our house, including moving existing furniture to make room. Communication with the manager about setting up the move was very good, and the crew was careful, efficient, and responsive to all our directions. I will definitely use them again.Mark T.9/17/2021
The entire process, from requesting a quote to the actual move, was so easy and professional, thanks to Suburban Solutions' wonderful customer service, sales team, and moving crew. The crew, managed by “Q”, was so professional, efficient, and thoughtful of my personal items, and I can’t thank them enough for their service. They eased my stress and anxiety about... read moreKim9/14/2021
This is my second move with Suburban Solutions and I can't say enough good things about them as a company. They communicated prior to the move and had me set up for success.
On the day of the move, there were text alerts prior to my teams arrival that kept me in the loop. My movers Chuck and Ashford arrived on... read moreKelly G.9/13/2021
We used both packing and moving service from South Philadelphia (Point Breeze) to Wallingford, PA. We were really happy with the guys, all of whom were respectful to us and courteous with our things.

Can't say enough about this company. Our crew of Vez (spelling might be wrong there), Mike and Mikey were top notch. They were prompt, careful, friendly, and efficient with the move. I've never had close to this pleasant of an experience with movers before, and I'll never use another moving company again. Will absolutely recommend to my friends and family,... read moreJames M.8/30/2021
I've used Suburban Solutions for moving twice so far. First time was April 2020, and they were so professional and friendly helping me move right as the pandemic was getting really bad.

Genuinely felt like they were enjoying their... read moreJulie D.8/24/2021

We recognize there’s a big difference between moving a five-bedroom house and a 12’×12′ studio apartment. That’s why, for you urban dwellers, we developed our swiftest and most efficient city-to-city moving option: The Sub-Solv Express.
Office moves can’t be done during normal business hours or your bottom line suffers. Proper care of equipment and items isn’t just for cosmetic purposes. You need it done the right way and with special care.
We know that not everyone needs a mover to get their belongings from one home to another. Sometimes our customers just need to downsize, get rid of clutter in the basement, stage their home for sale or just toss out that old couch or mattress!
