How much does a local move cost?
If the distance of your move is 50 miles or less, or you’re moving within the same city limits, it will be classified as a “local” move. Most moving companies will charge a flat rate of by the hour. The national average for local moves is $95/hour with the low-end cost being around $80 to $90/hour and the high-end cost being between $100 and $135/hour. Based on the number of rooms in your residence, a local move will range from $350 for a studio apartment up to $1,100 for a 5-bedroom home. The general rule of thumb is the more you move, the more you pay.
What does it cost to move long-distance?
Long distance moves include “intrastate” moves (within the same state) and “interstate” moves (moves that require transporting your belongings across state lines). Although we do show the national average, low-end cost, and high-end cost as an hourly rate, the cost of a long-distance move is usually based on the size and weight of the shipment.
The national average of a long-distance move is right at $100/hour, $75 to $95/hour on the low-end, and $100 to $150/hour on the high-end. Breaking long-distance moves down by mileage, a move of 500 miles will cost $750 to $3,000 while a move of up to 3,000 miles will average between $1,850 and $7,200. Keep in mind that these costs are based on national averages and other factors often come into play. These include:
- distance of the move
- number of movers required
- size and weight of the shipment
- time of year that you’re moving
- ease of access to your home, parking, stairs, etc.
- moving and packing supplies (if requested)
- liability and valuation coverage
- 3rd party moving insurance
Why should you hire All American Movers instead of going the DIY route?
For most of you, the money you’d save on DIY moving won’t justify the additional effort and time involved, not to mention the mental and physical stress that you’d have to endure in the process. Although self-packing provides a bit of compromise between a DIY move and a full-service relocation, if you want to save energy and time, hiring our full-service All American Movers team in Los Angeles makes more sense. Here are some comparisons to consider.
Aside from being in control of your move and saving money, DIY moves:
- is mentally and physically stressful
- might cause you to miss time on the job
- require you to drive a large truck, something you may not have any experience at
- take a lot of planning and work
And if you are considering hiring movers, let’s take a look at why you should consider hiring a professional All American Movers team in Los Angeles:
- You won’t have to do any heavy lifting
- You won’t have to drive a large truck
- You’ll have additional time to focus on other important tasks
- You’ll have less responsibility
Ultimately, the decision to hire All American Movers or do the move yourself rests on your shoulders. However, if you have a larger home and are moving long-distance, a DIY move will be much more complex and extremely difficult no matter how much help you have at both ends of the move. That is why while you focus on other key aspects of your life such as work and family matters, we take care of all your moving requirements. Having helped hundreds of families and businesses relocate all over the country, we can be of immense help at this crucial junction in your life.
