What Is the Average Cost of Moving?

Average Cost of Moving

There is a lot included in the cost of your moving services. To give a customer an estimate on moving costs, it’s nearly impossible without certain details and information. However, according to the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA), the average cost of an interstate household move is about $4,300 which includes about 1,255 miles of travel. This is for about 7,400lbs of belongings.

When it comes to average moving costs, there are several things that a moving company considers. Your location, the services you choose, the weight of your belongings, the time of season, the current fuel costs, and the distance between both locations will affect your final moving costs. Fortunately, it is usually cheaper and safer to hire a professional moving company.

The moving companies’ laborers also charge hourly. Although it depends on the location and situation of your move, each laborer estimates at about $25 per hour. Of course, the smaller the move, the fewer laborers are needed. A studio apartment may take about 2-3 laborers for a few hours usually costing about $150-$300 in labor fees. A large home will need more laborers to complete the job and may cost upwards to a few thousand dollars.

How Does a Moving Company Find out the Weight of Belongings?

The weight of your belongings really matter when factoring the costs. To get the exact weight of a customer’s belongings, the moving company will first weigh the truck that they intend to use. This total is referred to as the tare weight. After all your belongings are loaded onto the truck, it will get weighed again. This is the gross weight. The tare weight and the gross weight are then subtracted from one another. The total left is referred to as the net weight which is the exact weight of your belongings.

The weight of your belongings affects the final cost of your moving services significantly. The movers should take this part of the moving process seriously. It’s important that you hire a reliable moving company if you wish for the move to go over smoothly. Make sure the mover you hire is licensed and approved by the Better Business Bureau.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
