Hi, thanks for coming to Movers.com to find help with moving your washer and dryer set to your new place. I will be happy to provide some moving information for you to help you get a better idea of cost. 

I would need a little more information about the specifics of your move to target what type of service you would need, so I will provide information for a few scenarios - but keep in mind, I cannot give you a quote directly, but I can point you in the right direction to those who can. 

If you have a moving truck, and just need a moving crew

Did you rent a truck, and are simply looking for qualified moving professionals to pack, load and unload your washer and dryer? If that's the case, you can look into hiring moving labor services. All you'd have to do is go to the moving labor page on our website, fill out your zip code and the date you want the job completed, and you can browse through a listing of professional helpers in your area (including price estimates). These services typically charge based on the size of the moving crew, at an hourly rate (so for example, at $50 per hour per mover, a two-hour job could cost about $200)

If you need a company to handle the whole move

If you don't have a truck, and need professional movers to cover the relocation of your washer and dryer completely, then you will want to consider contacting small movers. A "small move" is basically any move that is under 2,000 pounds (this is the standard weight requirement for most commercial full-service moving companies, and you will be charged for at least this amount when you hire one). With small moves, the minimum weight requirement is much less -- generally around 100 pounds, depending on the company. Small movers will only charge you by the exact weight of your items per pound, for the most part. 

When getting estimates from small moving companies, we recommend you get at least three different estimates from three different companies before making your decision to hire any. You should also make sure the company you are looking to hire is in good standing with the BBB, and has good online customer reviews.

Thank you again for visiting Movers.com, and good luck with your move!
