How much moving cost is one of the most frequent question at Upload Moving Systems.
Please, take a moment and find your answers below.
Local moving services are charged by hour, based on the number of movers. We do add double driving time for all local moves. The minimum for the job is 285$ (cash) , if it takes 3 hours or less and no packing supply will be needed. The amount of hours will depend on the walking distance, the difficulty of staircases or elevator involved and traffic conditions at the day of the move. The time starts at the door and finishes when movers are done. For places more than 1000 sq ft we do recommend 3 movers @ additional $30 per hour. Long Distance moves are charged by weight with a minimum 5000 lbs per load.
