The recently published report estimates the total cost to move a 1 bedroom apartment should be approximately $300 – $500, but also explains several reasons the price may be higher, and suggests methods for limiting additional charges. This includes several strategies for completing all or part of the move without a professional moving company and guidelines for determining a cost-effective plan.
A chart included in the guide breaks down the costs of a 1 bedroom apartment move based on the distance required and additional services purchased, such as movers insurance or packing services. While the chart estimates an average move weight of 3,500 pounds, it also includes a guide for estimating the weight of a move and explains how that will affect the overall rates.
To reduce costs, the report suggests a list of extra services that can be discussed with the moving company in advance and methods for avoiding these extra charges. This includes moving items down any stairs or long hallways prior to the move, or carrying them up stairs or long hallways at the destination, to reduce carrying charges.
The report also provides a list of complications that can result in additional costs, such as if a moving truck cannot fit down the client’s street, if they require overnight or long-term storage for their possessions, and if they need additional packing supplies. While some of these issues may be unavoidable, the moving expert suggests that they should be discussed in advance with the professionals, to provide an accurate price estimate.
