What to know about moving in Jersey City

How much do movers cost in Jersey City?

Local movers often charge by the hour, and moving locally (less than 100 miles) usually costs somewhere between $550 and $2,000 depending on how long your move takes. Long-distance moves (over 100 miles) are much more expensive with prices ranging from $2,000 to $12,000. In some cases, long-distance moves can cost even more than this.

The width of these ranges is due to how unpredictable moving prices can be. The price of your move is influenced by dozens of factors that are unique to you, so any pricing prediction made without knowledge of these details is simply a guess.

Here are just a few factors that go into the price of your move:

  • How much stuff you have (shipment weight)
  • Where you’re moving to and from
  • The size of your home
  • How many flights of stairs are in/outside your home or apartment
  • When you move (summer moves are usually more expensive)

The only way to actually know how much you’ll pay for your move is to get free estimates from a few moving companies near you. When a moving company sends an estimator to your home, they tally up your belongings and weigh all the different factors of your move to give you a customized price.

If one mover’s price is too high, try getting an estimate from a different mover. The second one could be much cheaper. If you want to learn more about how moving companies determine their prices, read our guide to moving costs.
