Hire a Labor Only Mover with Experience

As highly experienced movers, Dearman Moving & Storage knows the for those who are moving, one of the most physically demanding parts of any moving process is loading and unloading items into and out of a moving vehicle. Planning and executing a move may be intense but the heavy up-and-down tends to be downright exhausting. Plus just being in moving mode creates fatigue and adding the constant need to move furniture and other bulky items can lead to overload.

Dearman can supplied experienced movers to execute the loading and unloading for your move and help you avoid some pitfalls.  Our movers are covered by our license and insurance – including Workers’ Compensation. If anything happens when they are working for you, it’s covered – by us – not you. Anyone can have an accident, but with our crew, it won’t cost you in the highly unlikely event that there is a problem resulting in injury.

Moving Labor – Loading and Unloading

Dearman can literally take the heavy up-and-down lifting out of any move.  Our skilled and professional moving crews will make short work out of all the loading and unloading you need.  Save your time – and your back.


Loading Labor

With your belongings already packed, you can hire us to take your things from the home to the moving truck where we'll pack and organize the truck so your things are safe and secure during transportation.


Furniture Moving Labor

Moving furniture is laborious and the process can easily frustrate you with difficult spaces, tight corners, and heavy, awkward furniture, draining a lot of your time and energy. We make moving furniture easy with experienced movers.


Unloading Labor

At your destination, we'll unpack the truck and bring all of your belongings into your new home. We'll take your boxes into the correct room or you can direct us to an appropriate place where you can further organize them.


Heavy Item and Appliance Moving Labor

Moving heavy items and appliances can be difficult. Moving appliances around corners, down stairs, or through doorways can be challenging, especially without help. We face these tasks on a daily basis and are adept at solving these moving problems.

Other Moving Labor

Dearman can make sure that have all the qualified help required to get what you need to where you need it.

There are many simple tasks that can waste all kinds of time and delay or even derail finishing your move. Some of these can bring the entire process to a screeching halt.

  1. Placement of furniture and other bulky/heavy items – it’s one thing to get furniture unloaded from a vehicle and another to get it where it needs to be. This is particularly true when you recognize that some substantial pieces of furniture and other items may need to be moved from one place to another – or even to an entirely different location.
  2. Disposal of moving boxes and materials – Getting all the packing materials can be a major chore. If you don’t clear them away, it may be difficult – or even impossible – to finish getting your new location in order.
  3. Deciding that some items need to be stored off-site – Sometimes, there just isn’t any room – or time – to get everything that has been moved into a logical location. Some items may need to be stored, at least temporarily, elsewhere.

Dearman Moving & Storage crew members can take care of all these issues, including arranging furniture, disposing of moving packing and other items and taking and storing items that need to be removed, at least for a while to another location.

Dearman has the moving labor, as well as the equipment, knowledge, and storage facilities to manage all your Loading/Unloading needs.

  • Professionalism - Our movers are professional in their approach. They are careful with your appliances and they know how to assemble and disassemble items that you may otherwise mess up.They come with the right equipment to help you make an easy move. 


  • Uninsured, Unlicensed, Unqualified Movers - You have to be careful hiring a labor only moving service as you may come across unscrupulous movers who do not follow all the proper regulations. They are often not insured and many companies hire temporary or “contract” employees who are not properly trained. At Dearman, we are licensed by the DOT and insured in case of accidents that can cover any damages during transport.

"We were extremely pleased with Dearman Moving. Fair pricing, quick response to questions, frequent contact and a willingness to work with us when we had to move up our date. A special thanks to Nicole Lang for the assistance she provided throughout the process. The packers and loaders were efficient and professional. Despite snow on the second day of loading, they kept to the schedule so that we could leave Mansfield at a reasonable time. I would recommend Dearman to anyone."

Nate Temple, Jordan H, Colton Henderson, Bill Hardin, and Cody Henderson did an outstanding job moving my family a few weeks ago. It was a long, hot move and the guys were above and beyond professional and patient. We were so grateful for their efforts and attention to detail. I recommend them to anyone needing to move. I knew it would be a hard move and hoped that all would go well. I could not be more appreciative for all they did on the two-day move. Dearman and the team are amazing!!!

"This company is wonderful to work with. Everyone I spoke to from start to finish were very professional and friendly. The movers, Chuck and Bill, were fabulous. When they got to my house, the road crew was working on the road I’m front of my house. The guys definitely went above and beyond, taking my furniture out the front door, down a small hill to the truck at the side of the house. Great job guys! I 100% recommend this company."
Facebook Review
This is the 2nd time I have used Dearman moving and storage and both times have been pleasant experiences. Colton was present for both moves and trust me, you want him there. He’s very professional and knows how to pack a truck and make sure your belongings are safe. Jordon, Cameron and Matt was also with Colton for our 2nd big move and all the guys were pleasant and worked very hard to get the job done Quickly and safely. Overall, from the first contact to execution, this was an excellent company to work with.
