What to know about moving in Boise

A local Boise move will cost significantly less than a long-distance one. Move.org assessed some of the nation’s top moving companies’ costs and found that a local move with professional, full-service movers costs $7,600 on average while a long-distance one will be closer to $9,140. Using a moving container will cost significantly less, but also require you to do more work. You will pay roughly $1,680 for local service with a moving container and $4,310 for long distance.

The cost you will pay for your Boise movers depends on where you’re moving and what you need (and the time of year). Some movers offer discounted rates for specific groups of people like veterans or teachers. And some may give you a discount for scheduling a move out in advance. Always ask about discounted rates and use promotions you find.

Some good things involved with moving to Boise include:

  • A booming economy. According to the S. Census data, close to 70% of the population participates in the workforce.
  • Mental-health support. It has lower rates of mental health illness among adults and youth with more access to services, according to Mental Health America.
  • Breath-taking scenery. Check out the Idaho Botanical Garden, Boise River Greenbelt, MK Nature Center, Lucky Peak State Park, the list goes on.
  • High rates of education. Over 95% of residents have a high school diploma or higher and close to 44% have a Bachelor’s degree or higher, according to Census data.

According to Niche.com, locals consider Highlands, East End, Central Hills, Boise Heights, Quail Ridge, and Caldwell to be some of the best parts of Boise to live in.
