How to Calculate Moving Costs

How much does moving cost?  It’s a question all prospective movers ask themselves, and one not all of them answer correctly.

Accurately calculating moving costs is an involving process. Here are the steps you should follow:

  1. Use MovingGuru’s cost calculator – to get an accurate estimate of your moving costs. If you are comfortable with it, move on to step 2.
  2. Get free moving quotes – get a number of quotes and pick out the right company for you.
  3. DIY costs – if you are moving some or all of your stuff yourself, calculate the costs of supplies, travel and effort.
  4. Post-move costs – your moving costs don’t stop at moving. You’ll need to get new services and pay various fees, such as for a new driver’s license.  Learn how to budget beyond your move.

After adding your moving company costs, your personal moving costs, and related post-move costs, you’ll have calculated the cost of your move.
