How much does a moving company usually cost?

The price of a move depends on multiple different facts. Local (Intrastate) moves are usually charged by the hour and Long Distance (Interstate) moves by the weight and distance of your move. So, if you are making a Local move and it takes the movers 4 hours, you pay 4 x the hourly rate the mover gives you. If you are making a Long Distance move, a small truckload going 10 miles will cost less than a large truckload going cross-country. Just remember that every mover is different so you might see a wide range of rate when you receive moving quotes. Also keep in mind that packing and storage will create extra fees.
