The average cost to hire a mover is around $1,700 as of September, 2022 – per Homeadvisor.com. If you’re moving long-distance, the costs average are around $4,800 ($2,700 to $7,000 or as high as $10,000).
There are several different factors that impact your cost.
Rent Your Own Truck
This can help you lower your costs, but again, if it’s long distance, the cost is still pretty high. You can check out https://www.uhaul.com/Tips/Moving/How-To-Estimate-The-Mileage-Fees-for-Your-Move-26768/ for information on mileage costs.
Hire A Full Service Moving Company
Here you’ll need to get a few different estimates. Here are a few options:
I recently sold a home in Holbrook and my clients moved to Florida. They used R J Johnson Moving & Storage LLC – They really liked them. Phone 516-302-3254. Ask for Chris. The work number is 516-579-5429.
Keep in mind that the movers give different kinds of estimates for weighing your household items. Pay close attention to the details.
If you hire a mover, you’ll be paying an hourly rate. According to HomeAdvisor.com, the average time it takes to move a 4 bedroom home is 8 hours so your costs could vary between $600 to $1,200.
