How much moving companies cost in Massachusetts & Rhode Island

How much moving cost in Massachusetts and Rhode Island?

We often get emails along the lines of, “Hi, I’m moving from Boston apartment to another or from  Boston to Cambridge. How much will my move cost?”

As you can guess, we definitely need 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.)

However, even without that information, we can give a general sense of what kind of budget you should plan when looking to hire moving companies in Massachusetts, Boston, Attleboro and surrounding area.

Let’s say you’re moving from a two-bedroom apartment in, say, Boston to another in the same town or moving in Cambridge. 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 $120 and $200 per hour between October and March. Of course, from April through September, the cost would be a little higher — from around $150 per hour up to $250 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 $220 and $400 per hour. Again, the summer and on weekends would have higher rates.

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 in Boston area will charge.

How To Lower your Moving Cost!

On top of offering  all these affordable services to you. We at EasygoMover don’t mind giving you some helpful advice on how to lower the cost.

Any move that covers a distance of 50 or fewer miles is categorized as “local moving,” or an interstate. A full-service move can include boxing or packing up household goods, loading, moving, unloading and unpacking. Simple moving services might just include helping people unload a moving of household items into a storage unit.

Pricing a local move into a new home or apartment is not always simple. Various additional costs and extra charges could increase the total bill if homeowners do not give clear details when asking for a price quote. If movers have stairs to climb, extra stops to make, or specialty items and fragile things to move, costs will increase. If we can’t park the truck close to the destination, prices may also go up to account for the extra distance carrying boxes and furniture.Read More
