Although not all moving companies charge by the hour, here is a quick guide to help you navigate hourly moving prices. Sometimes it costs more to move a studio than a one or two bedroom apartment. The cost of hiring professional local carriers is often calculated based on an hourly rate, which can increase as more carriers or moving trucks are needed. If you have a five- or seven-bedroom home, you'll save more money and time, mostly time, with more moves than with fewer moves.
While the cost of a properly insured moving company that offers a fixed rate may be higher than that of an unknown operator with a questionable quotation system, if something goes wrong, you will have peace of mind knowing that you are protected and any setbacks will be handled by your carriers.
