A three-bedroom move from Queen Creek, AZ to Kingman, AZ will cost you anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000 depending on the exact size of your shipment and what kind of moving services you opt for when you hire your movers. How exactly did I arrive at the total? Well, I'll take a few moments to break down how the cost of your move can be estimated based on the information you've provided.
Your move from Queen Creek, AZ to Kingman, AZ will cover roughly 300 miles, which will classify it as a long distance move. By definition, a long distance move is any move that covers more than 100 total miles. Since your move will be classified as a long distance one, your moving costs will be dependent on the weight of your shipment and you will not be charged per hour, as you would for a local move.
Because you are moving three bedrooms, the total weight of your moving shipment will likely be around 10,000 pounds. While you may very well have more items to move than the standard 10,000-pound average for a three-bedroom house, or you may have fewer items to move, this number is an average weight and is only being used to estimate your total costs. For a 10,000-pound shipment being moved around 300 miles, the average cost breaks down to around $3,000 at the low end for a standard move without any extra services added.
As you add additional things like packing services and moving insurance, your move will get more expensive. For example, adding packing services to your move will add roughly another $500-600 to your total costs and adding moving insurance will add another $100-200. At the high end of the cost spectrum would be a complete full-service move, which includes everything from packing and loading to unpacking and unloading, along with moving insurance, and will likely set you back anywhere from $4,000-$5,000.

The cost of moving a three-bedroom home about 200 miles from Queen Creek, Arizona to Kingman Arizona will be determined by the type of moving service you require. Depending on whether you choose a do-it-yourself move, "You Load, We Drive", or full-service moving, the outcome of your total costs will vary.Do It Yourself Move
If you opt to rent a moving truck, pack and load all of your belongigns and drive them to Kingman yourself, it would probably be the most cost-effective method. U-Haul charges $39.95 for a 20' trailer (recommended for moving a three-bedroom home) plus $0.99 for every mile traveled. This will bring your cost up to $237.95 to travel from Queen Creek to Kingman, Arizona. Next, you will have to factor in gas costs--the 20' trucks only get about four to six miles per gallon so you will need 50 gallons of gas to travel 200 miles. The current average price of gas in Arizona is $3.55 a gallon, so you will pay around $177.50 in fuel costs to drive to your destination, bringing your grand total to $415.45. Of course, remember you will also have to pay for packing supplies, which can add up to several hundred dollars for a three-bedroom house move.Full Service Moving
If you don't have the time, strength or know-how to pull off a DIY move, you may opt for hiring professional movers. However, with the convenience comes higher costs. To move from Queen Creek to Kingman, your cost can range $3,200 - $4,000 depending on the weight of your belongings (a typical three-bedroom home ranges from 7,500 lb to 10,000 lb). If you want the movers to pack your belongings as well as load and transport them, you could pay anywhere from $5,500 to $7,200.You Load, We Drive
If you're torn between affordability and convenience, you may want to consider a "You Load, We Drive" service. With this service, a company will drop a portable storage unit off at your door, and you can load it with your belongings at your leisure. When you are ready, a driver will pick up your trailer and drop it off at your new lcoation for you. To move the contents of a three-bedroom home, U-Pack quotes your price at around $900 to $1,000, not including insurance.<
