If you are moving from one home to another, having a few pieces of furniture moved, or need something large and bulky moved like a piano, hire professional movers. Professional movers typically have the knowledge, skills, materials, and equipment to move items from one area to another safely. This is true whether you are moving across town or having furniture brought from a relative’s home to yours. Movers may also pack your items for you, as well as carry and load it onto the truck.
Because every job is different in terms of items, weight, and distance, this leads to a wide variation of costs. Labor can be difficult to separate from the total costs of a project because it makes up the majority of the task. The average price to pack, load, and ship a 2-bedroom home 1,000 miles is around $3,500.
