Mover shaking customers hand

How much does it cost to move?

It’s been nearly 40 years of moving! It all began as a small, local operation in Lansing, Michigan and has evolved into the largest franchised moving company in the country.

Throughout this time, there’s one question we get asked more than any other: How much does it cost to move?

The answer? Well, it depends! With any professional moving service – ours included – there are a variety of factors that play into the cost of a move. No two moves are the same, and the final bill for 10 different moves can be 10 different prices. In this blog, we want to highlight some of the factors which can affect moving prices so you know what to look for when getting moving quotes.

How much does TWO MEN AND A TRUCK cost?

At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, our moving prices are usually determined by the type of move being completed.

  • Local Moves: Hourly Pricing
  • Long-Distance Moves: Weight and Miles Pricing

Other variables that can come into play include which state the move is happening in, or how many movers will be required on the job. It’s important to remember that each TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise is independently owned and operated, so each sets their own pricing rates based on the needs of their business and location.

What can affect the cost of a move?

Along with what’s mentioned above, there are plenty of other factors that can determine the final bill. With local moves being charged by the hour, there are plenty of variables that can add to the time it takes for a move to be completed.

Some of these factors include:

  • The distance it takes for the movers to walk from the truck to the load or unload location
  • The amount of time it takes movers to load and unload belongings
  • The number of flights or stairs involved with a move
  • The drive time from the load to unloading location on a move

These things all must be considered before scheduling a move so you know what the cost might be. When working with the franchise for a free moving quote, we strongly encourage customers to be 100 percent honest when working with our customer service representatives. Leaving out important details of how many belongings you have or the layout of your home can drastically change the moving plan that’s laid out, and final bill may not reflect what has been estimated for you.
