moving costs of your moving services

Moving costs are one of the most frequently asked questions that our clients ask us.
Also, browsing different moving blogs may see the following questions many times.

  • How much should it cost to move a one-bedroom apartment,
  • What is the average cost to move a four-bedroom house,
  • how much professional movers cost, and how much moving my home costs?
  • Generally, what is the cost of moving houses?

And many more similar questions.
You can find a lot of information by typing “moving costs calculator Canada.” However, providing any number regarding moving costs is complicated and inaccurate.

This article explains how moving time and costs depend on your right decision.
As you know, the moving cost directly depends on the time a moving company spends on you. In other words, answering the above questions is difficult, as calculating moving time is difficult. As a mover who has spent many years in the moving business, I admit there is always something you might not expect on your moving day.


As the first example, how would you know about traffic on your moving day? Imagine the road is always quiet; however, today, you have an accident that makes it busy.


As the second example, sometimes, a coach doesn’t fit the stairway because of a one-inch difference. The house was under construction when bringing the couch in ten years ago. The movers at that time could fit the sofa as there was no railing at the entrance. Now, the team of movers should either

  • One of the bolts is stripped when removing the bar,
  • sending the couch over the balcony by rope or straps, or
  • spending time disassembling an ancient leg. “You just made my day.”

Even if the moving companies are lucky to tell their clients about the old place very precisely, how would they know the situation in the new site? Sometimes, having even one stair on the way makes the moving time and moving costs, as a result, way different than usual.
A professional moving company usually tries to charge by the hour, particularly in local moves. It doesn’t make a problem if you hire movers you know or trust. What is essential is that you need to make the right decision when hiring a moving company to save money and time. For example, when you have many stairs at the pickup or destination, you might need more local movers to make the moving team efficient. Having just two movers under these circumstances makes them tired and inefficient in a short time. As a result, you need to spend a long time and a full day moving with additional costs.
