How much do movers cost for a local move?

Answered

If you are paying movers to perform a local move, expect to pay between $72 and $135 per hour. To minimize the overall cost of the move, do as much preparatory work in advance as possible. Have your items packed, boxed and wrapped in protective wrapping. Also, have everything labeled with its location in your new home. If possible, move items toward the door or in a convenient location for the movers to grab as they remove them from the house.
