The cost of moving is determined by a variety of factors. The distance of your move, the type of moving service you require, and the weight of your shipment will all influence the ultimate cost of your relocation.
Different Moving Services
The type of service you choose will affect your expenses dramatically. The following are several moving options that are available to you:
- Do-it Yourself Move: Pack, load, and transport your own shipment with a moving truck rental.
- You Pack, We Load: Pack and load your own portable storage unit deliveed directly to your door, and have it picked up and transported to New York whenever you choose.
- Full-Service Move: Allow the movers to load, transport and unload your belongings--you can also pay extra for them to pack and/or unpack it all as well.
- Moving Labor: If you have a rental truck or portable storage unit, hire moving labor to help you with the loading/unloading.
Distance and Weight
Moving to New York from Connecticut would be classified as a long-distance move. Unlike local movers that will charge by the hour, long distance movers charge you by the volume of your belongings and the distance you are traveling. Though you didn't provide your origin or destination, Connecticut and New York are about 100 miles apart from border to border. Based on that distance, here are some rough estimates for a variety of shipment sizes:
- Three-Bedroom House: $2,400
- Four-Bedroom House: $3,300
- Five-Bedroom House: $4,100
These estimates are based on full-service moves, without packing services. You will pay more for packing/unpacking help, insurance, and other special services. You will also pay less for a do-it-yourself move or moving labor.
