Hello, and thank you for visiting Movers.com!
The cost of your move will depend on a variety of factors, such as the exact weight of your furniture and belongings, the distance of your move, the services you require, and the company you choose.
If you are moving locally (less than 100 miles) you will likely be charged by the hour. Local movers usually charge you about $100 an hour for two movers and a truck. Your total bill will be calculated based on the amount of time it takes the movers to load your belongings, transport them, and unload them in your new home. If you require packing services as well, that time will also be factored into your total cost, as well as costs for the materials.
If you will be moving long distance, you will be charged based on the mileage traveled and the weight of your goods. The contents of a two-bedroom house typically weigh between 5,000 and 7,500 pounds. The following chart will give you an idea of what you can expect to pay using the results of an online moving calculator.
