How Much Will My Move Cost?
We often get emails along the lines of, “Hi, I’m moving from one Arlington apartment to another. How much will my move cost?”
As you can guess, our moving company in MA definitely needs more information to provide an accurate quote. (For example, to offer a rate, we need a full inventory of boxes and furniture, a breakdown of the stair and/or elevator situation, and a target date for the move.) These kinds of questions are especially tricky with recent inflation and price increases making long- and medium-term financial planning more difficult for everyone — so knowing the cost of moving will be is an even more pressing concern than ever.
So the short answer is that we need more than basic information in order to offer a rate. However, even with very minimal information, our team of movers in Boston can offer a general sense of what kind of budget you should plan when looking to hire movers in the Boston area. These figures are accurate as of mid-June 2022, and we’ll try to update them as needed.
Let’s you’re moving from a two-bedroom apartment in, say, Arlington to another in the same town. You’re flexible so you can move on a weekday in the middle of the month. (This is important, as weekends are more expensive, as are days near the end or the beginning of the month.)
A two-bedroom apartment will usually require a 24- or 26-foot truck and three movers, which would generally cost between $180 and $275 per hour between October and March. Of course, from April through September, the cost would be a little higher — from around $220 per hour up to $320 per hour.
With a larger, say, 5-bedroom house, you might be looking at five or six movers and multiple trucks. That would put the off-season rate between $300 and $450 per hour. Again, the summer and on weekends would have higher rates, like in other MA moving companies.
These aren’t firm numbers, and your moving rate will depend on the details of your particular situation. But they should give you a basic idea of what most local movers will charge.
