How much does it cost to hire a mover?

When hiring a mover, there are different variables used to calculate costs that will determine how much your move will be.

Hourly (Local Moves)

Usually, if you are moving within state, you will be charged an hourly flat fee. State rules will establish whether your move is local or long distance. If it is a long distance move, you will most likely not be allowed to be charged per hour.

By Weight (Long Distance Moves)

Most companies will charge per weight only when you are moving from one state to another. You will usually receive a price per pound for weight-dependent moving costs.

Other Cost Factors

After being charged either hourly or by weight, you may have additional costs added to your bill. These costs can include:

* moving insurance

* packing services/supplies

* furniture disassembly/reassembly fees

Depending on the moving company, you may be charged many hidden additional fees. Be sure to ask about them before your move to avoid surprise costs on your final bill.

Keep in mind that every mover will be different in the ways and amounts they charge!
