How much does it cost to complete a home move?

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK mover talking with customers

Getting ready for a home move can leave you with a lot of questions, from determining how to get your items packed up to setting a move date and how you’ll get your belongings to your new home.

However, there is one question we get asked by potential customers more than any other: How much does it cost to move?

The answer to this question depends on a variety of different factors! No two home moves are the same, and it’s impossible to give one set price for a move because each move requires different amounts of time, moving, and resources – all of which play a factor into what the final bill will be. In this blog, we’ll highlight a few areas that determine cost of a move so you’ll know what to expect if you’re hiring professional movers!

How much does it cost to hire TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®?

When using the Movers Who Care®, the price of your bill will be determined by the type of move being completed:

  • Local moves: Hourly pricing
  • Long-distance moves: Weight and miles pricing

A few other variables include the state where the move is taking place and how many movers will be needed for the job. One important thing to remember: each TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise is independently owned and operated, meaning rates may vary by franchise.

What factors affect the cost of a home move?

The points mentioned above are the main factors in determining a moving bill, but there are plenty of other things to consider when getting an estimate. Specifically with local moving, which is charged by the hour, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • The distance movers need to walk from the truck to the load/unload location
  • The number of flights of stairs involved with the move
  • The drive time from the load to unloading location
  • The amount of time needed to load and unload belongings

Each of these will play into the total time needed to complete the move, so each will contribute to how the cost is calculated. When working with your local franchise to get your free estimate, it’s recommended to be as honest and transparent as possible so your moving consultant can build the most accurate moving plan and estimate for you. Leaving out important details of how much is being moved or the layout of your current home can cause interruptions and adjustments, which can add more time to your final bill.
