Hi, thanks so much for visiting Movers.com! The simple answer to your question about how much it costs to move your furniture is: it depends.

First, you will need to decide whether you want to hire professionals to pack, load, drive and unload your belongings, or if you’d rather handle some of the logistics yourself.

If you do it yourself:

The cheapest way to move is usually to handle the process on your own. However, a three-bedroom home will likely have a significant amount of furniture, appliances, and boxes to load and transport. If you are considering a DIY move for a three-bedroom house, you should at least enlist the aid of several friends to pack and load your truck.

You will need to consider:

  • Packing Supplies (This could cost you upwards of $300 depending on where you get your supplies)
  • Truck Rental (costs for moving trucks vary)
  • Packing/Unpacking
  • Loading/Unloading

If you hire professionals:

Any move less than 100 miles is considered a local move. Local movers charge by the hour, with an average rate of about $100 per hour for two movers and a truck. Depending on the amount of goods you need moved, you may need three to four movers, which will increase your hourly rate to about $150 to $170 an hour. Your cost will vary depending on the distance of your move, but a three-bedroom house move usually takes between six to eight hours, putting your move at about $900 to $1300 for labor alone. You may also be charged extra fees for special services and supplies.
