What to know about moving in Montgomery

The total cost of your Montgomery move will fluctuate depending on when you move, how far you’re going, how many belongings you have, and more. The type of moving services you choose will also be a big factor in the cost: full-service moving costs start at $1,200, storage containers are around $850, and moving truck rentals start at $120.1

If you’re moving during peak season (the summer or holidays), it’s smart to book a moving company at least eight weeks in advance.2 There’s never any harm in booking a mover well ahead of schedule, even if you’re moving during a low-demand time of year. However, if you’re in a pinch, you may be able to book a moving company just a few weeks (or days) in advance.

Based on the national average, you can expect to pay about $3 per mile for moving containers in Montgomery. This typically comes out to about $3,8703—but your costs will vary depending on factors like how much you’re moving, how far you’re going, and the time of year when you plan to move.

Alabama’s capital city is home to many enticing attractions, including the Civil Rights Memorial, Montgomery Zoo & Mann Wildlife Learning Museum, The Legacy Museum, and Riverfront Park. If you’re looking for great barbeque, be sure to check out Joe’s Again Buffalo Wings & Rib City, which made our list of the top-rated BBQ restaurants in each state.4
