Are you planning a move? Check out moving company costs to help you budget

Moving company costs vary based on the size, destination, and service required. In this article, we will provide the average cost of moving for local, long-distance, international moves. The price averages we will offer are estimations based on standards. If you want a more accurate price, we recommend speaking with a mover directly to get the details. Before you make the call create an inventory list of what you’re moving, and know the services you will require. Before you call a mover check out this article on going with cheap movers.

Local Moving Services

Local moving service would be considered anything within your state. Costs for local moving are based on the hour, how many men and packing supplies. There are ways on how to save money on your local move. Self-packing is one of them. The examples below will give you an approximate estimate on what to expect for a local move. Check out this article on why people pay more than their moving estimate.

One bedroom: $750-$1200
Two bedrooms: $1100-$1500
Three bedrooms:$1400-$2000
Four Bedrooms: $2500-$3500
Five Bedrooms: $3700-$5000

Long-Distance Moving Services

If you’re planning a long-distance move, you should understand moving company costs. Prices for an out of state move vary based on distance, size, and service type. There are also possible additional charges such and a long carry or shuttle fee. If a truck has to park 75 feet or more away from your front door, you will end up paying a one time charge of $75. Living in a metropolitan area, chances are you will need shuttle service. If a large truck can’t fit down your street, your household goods will need to be transferred into a smaller vehicle before offloading. Anyone offering long-distance moving will need to be lisenced by the DOT. Check out this post on the average cost of a cross country move.

One bedroom: $1700-$2000
Two bedrooms: $2300-$3000
Three Bedrooms: $3500-$5000
Four bedrooms: $4700-$6500
Five bedrooms: $6000-$10,000
