Location ndash; Local

Research conducted by Zillow states that about 57 of those who sell their house to move are moving locally. And an estimated 86 of movers >

bull;nbsp;A one bedroom apartment will take about 3 to 5 hours to move and cost 200-500
bull;nbsp;A two bedroom apartment will take about 5 to 7 hours to move and cost 400-700
bull;nbsp;A three bedroom house will take about 7 to 10 hours to move and cost 560-1,000
bull;nbsp;A four bedroom house will take over ten hours to move and cost 800-2,000

When we calculate these prices, we are talking about hiring movers to assist you in your move, because, honestly; doing it on your own is a virtually impossible feat.

Location ndash; Long Distance

When yoursquo;re packing up for a long distance move, pricing will be on the higher side of the equation. If you need to cross state lines, for example, itrsquo;s essential to factor in that you will accumulate costs for gas and labor. When working with a professional and reputable moving company, they will devise an agreement that outlines the cost, breaking down all the essentials, so you can get a full picture of where your dollars are being used.

Do It Yourself

You might be thinking that you donrsquo;t want to hire a moving company, as yoursquo;re tight on cash; so yoursquo;ve elected to make a move yourself. You could ask all of your friends with big cars to help, but keep in mind if a moving truck is something that you want to invest in, itrsquo;s about 20 a day.

Minimum Options

You can ask for just a loading and transportation service, where you pack everything up and pu>

Storage

What if you need to move out by a specific date, but your new home wonrsquo;t be available right away? This means you will have to factor in a storage unit, which could range anywhere from 50 to 400 a month.

Moving is certainly not the most blissful activity, but you are hopefully moving because you are upgrading your living situation. So, be sure to factor everything in beforehand
