Hello, and thank you for visiting Movers.com!

The way your movers charge will depend on the type of move. Local movers (for moves under 100 miles) usually charge by the hour, long-distance movers charge by weight and distance, and international movers charge by volume.

Other Fees

You may also be charged extra fees for additional services that your move requires. Some of these include:

  • Disconnecting or reconnecting appliances
  • Elevator carries
  • Long carries
  • Stair carries
  • Shuttle service--when goods need to be transferred to a smaller truck because the larger truck cannot fit down your street or park near your home
  • Moving specialty items such as a piano
  • Storage
  • Packing services--you can pay the movers to pack your things as well
  • Packing supplies--unless you purchase your own supplies, the movers may charge you for boxes, tape or furniture pads
  • Additional insurance fees
