Piggy bank with "Moving Costs" written on it in front of moving boxes

If you’re planning a residential move you’re probably wondering how much it costs to hire a professional moving company. There are many factors that impact prices, such as:

  • Location
  • Size of the Home
  • Distance of the Move
  • Services Selected

The only way to get an accurate cost estimate is to get a personalized quote from the moving company. Reliable movers will assess what you have to move and then provide a written estimate.

Tips for Saving On Your Moving Costs

If you’re trying to relocate on a budget, there are some ways you can save while still enjoying the benefits offered by a professional moving company:

  • Downsize Before the Move: One of the best ways to save on your move is to get rid of items you no longer use or need. Why pay to move clothes you haven’t worn for years of kitchen appliances never see the light of the day? Prior to the move, donate or give away unused and unwanted items.
  • Customize Your Moving Package: The best moving companies offer full-service moving, but if you’re trying to save money, ask if they can customize a package with only the services you need.
  • Do Some of the Packing Yourself: Instead of full-service packing, opt for fragile-only packing. This allows you to get the protection you need for fragile items while you pack things like clothes and books yourself.
