All things considered, your move shouldn't break the bank. Here, allow me to explain.
Your move, from Flint, MI to Lansing, MI is less than 60 miles in total distance, meaning that your move is typically defined as a local move in the moving industry. What this means is that the moving company you hire for the move will charge you by the hour for their services, rather than based on the weight of your shipment, like they would if it was a long-distance move.
Since you are only moving a one-bedroom residence and it doesn't seem like you have too many belongings that will need to be moved, your move will likely not take very long to complete, which will definitely keep the total cost of your move down when you get the final bill.
Most moving companies charge from $80-$100 per hour for a team of movers and truck to pick up and move your belongings for you. Depending on the distance you are moving, your total costs can be much lower than they would be for a long distance move.
These are just estimations though, based on my knowledge. If you wish to obtain a more accurate moving quote, simply fill out the quick and easy-to-use moving quote form on the front page of our site and you'll be connected with moving companies who can service your move.
