Moving in and around Charlotte NC can be expensive. Many moving companies provide local, long-distance, interstate and cross-country moving services. A local move, commonly called an intrastate move, requires a moving company to relocate your items within the same state.

Are you wondering how much the movers charge for local moves?  Local movers charge an hourly rate that generally includes a moving truck, all the equipment, miscellaneous materials, and the movers.

An interstate move is a long-distance move that typically traverses states. The American Moving and Storage Association states that the average cost to move across state lines can be anywhere between $4300 and $4800 with an average distance of about 1200 miles.

When it comes to cost to move across country, Most cross country moving companies will charge you based on the weight of your shipment and the distance to your new home but will probably charge you for a number of additional services and various fees as well.

During the height of the moving season (May September, weekends, holidays, first and last days of a month), your Charlotte moving company can charge you up to 20% more than their standard rates. Most companies will base their pricing on supply and demand. It’s always best to book your move sooner rather than later to ensure that you save the most money on your move.

If you have two people handling the move, average moving costs should be between $80 and $100 per hour. Keep in mind that this rate will change based on the company completing the move and the laws in the state governing the move. Most moving companies are required to hold a license. In the state of North Carolina, The NC Utilities Commission governs what moving companies can charge in the state of North Carolina.

This range includes a rate of $25 to $50 per hour for each additional professional above 3 movers, as well as a truck/travel fee for moves of fewer than 100 miles. Moving one item like a car or piano costs $400 to $2,000, on top of general relocation expenses. The amount of personal property you’re moving will also impact your relocation budget.

To calculate moving costs, you’ll need to factor in weight, mileage and labor costs. Some common services or extras that will require additional costs include Packing services. Like we mentioned earlier, a number of factors contribute to the total cost of your move. Try to find out about all of the potential charges prior to booking your local or long-distance move.

Remember, you have a lot of control over the variables that can increase or decrease the cost of hiring movers Raleigh NC.
