How Much Does It Cost to Move a Four-Bedroom House?

June 8th, 2012 - 9:53 AM

My parents have lived in the same four-bedroom house for almost 20 years. Besides all the furnishings, they have accumulated plenty of stuff. They’re planning to retire and move soon, but they’ll have to move all of that stuff. (I have to admit, I’m kind of glad it’s them and not me). Since I work for a moving service, my mom has asked this question more than once: “How much does it cost to move a four-bedroom house?”  If you’re in the same situation, and asking the same question, my answer to you is exactly the same as the answer I gave her: Get a moving quote!

Here is why I can’t give you a straight answer: every move is unique. There are many variables at play that affect your price: how much you are moving, where you are moving to and from, and your move date, just to name a few. The only true way to figure out your cost to move a four-bedroom house is to get an instant moving quote. Just enter your move specifics and your email address and you'll see your price instantly (85% of our customers will get an instant price, 15% require review by a moving specialist and you'll receive your quote within 24 hours).

What does a moving quote include? Some moving companies offer moving quotes or estimates that aren't final. Here's what I mean: A full-service mover can give you an estimate, but ultimately (in most cases), your total moving cost will depend on how long it takes the loaders/unloaders to finish the job and how much your shipment weighs. That means you won't know the total price until after the shipment is traveling. Then, of course, it's easy to get an online truck rental quote, but the price you see isn't the final price. You'll have to add in extra costs like damage protection, taxes and tolls, not to mention food and hotel stays along the route. Then there's U-Pack, where your quote includes everything: fuel, taxes, and the driver.

You don't pay for it. Your rate is adjusted based on the space you use. No paying for wasted space here!
