What is the cost of a long-distance move? Here, you can estimate the transport cost of your move. This will prepare you for discussion of an actual quote with the mover.
Most long-distance movers estimate your cost at about $1 per pound of goods moved, and consider the total weight of goods in an average room to be 1000 lb. Use this simple worksheet for a rough estimate of your long-distance move transport cost:
One person [student size move]
One person apartment
Caution: Any move of a home greater than 2000 square feet is extremely difficult to estimate without an on-site inspection.
Exceptionally long-distance moves will incur a higher cost.
If you are moving from Canada to the U.S., the billing will be in American dollars.
