Hello, and thank you for visiting! The cost of your move will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of your home, the weight of your belongings, and the distance you are traveling.

Local Moves

If you hire local movers (for a move under 100 miles), they will usually charge you by the hour. The hourly rate you will pay will depend on the size of your home and the amount of furniture/boxes you have. The average rate for two movers and a truck is about $100 an hour, but you may pay more for a larger home.

Long-Distance Moves

For moves 100 miles or greater, you will require the services of long-distance movers. Long-distance movers charge based on the weight of your belongings and the distance they must transport them. The following estimates (generated by an online moving calculator, not an actual moving company) for moves of varied sizes and distances.

Size of residence:

Three-bedroom home (7,500 lb): 100 miles, $2,400; 500 miles, $3,700; 1,000 miles, $4,700; 3,000 miles, $7,800

Four-bedroom home (about 10,000 lb): 100 miles, $3,300; 500 miles, $4,700; 1,000 miles, $6,000; 3,000 miles, $10,000

Five-bedroom home (about 15,000 lb): 100 miles, $4,100; 500 miles, $6,100; 1,000 miles, $5,100; 3,000 miles, $18,100

Extra Fees

You could also pay more for your move depending on special services you require. Movers may add extra fees to your bill for things like stair carries, the disassembly and/or reassembly of furniture, or packing labor and materials. You could also opt to pay for extra insurance on your belongings. Before choosing any moving company for hire, be sure to ask detailed questions during your in-house estimate about any extra fees you may incur.
