What to know about moving in Rochester

How much do movers cost in Rochester?

In general, moving can cost anywhere between $550–$12,000 depending on how far you’re moving, how much stuff you have to move, and how many specialty services (like packing) you pay for.

If you’re moving locally (less than 100 miles), your move probably won’t cost more than $2,000, though it can happen in some cases. For a long-distance move (100+ miles), $2,000 is almost always the least you’ll pay, and there isn’t a definite upper limit to how much a long-distance move can cost.

At the end of the day, the only way to pinpoint the price of your move is to get an estimate from a moving company. And if you’re committed to finding the cheapest movers near you, you should get estimates from several different moving companies to compare prices. Some movers are cheaper than others.

Learn more by reading our guide to moving costs.

How much do homes cost in Rochester?

In 2021, Rochester’s median home value was $144,400,1 putting the city among the more affordable options for homebuyers in New York. For comparison, the median home value in the New York City metro area was $450,900 and Buffalo’s median was $148,500.

That said, home values have risen since we ranked the best cities for first-time homebuyers, so our numbers might be slightly off. To get an idea of how prices have changed, check out our report on home price increases across the country.

How much do utilities cost in New York?

The average resident of New York State pays $374.35 every month for their streaming services, electricity, internet, gas, and water utilities.2 Since this is a state-wide average, you might end up paying more—or less—for your utility bills in some cities. See how New York’s utility costs compare to those in other states by reading our guide to utility bills.

What’s the safest way to move valuable items?

Hiring professional movers to pack and transport especially valuable items is usually your best bet. The pros bring invaluable training and experience to specialty jobs like this, and they’ll also come properly equipped with the best packing materials. Additionally, your moving company will usually let you purchase special coverage for high-value belongings in case they’re damaged during delivery.

However, hiring movers to transport expensive belongings can be, well… expensive. You can make your move a bit cheaper by packing and delivering your antiques and sentimental belongings yourself as long as you’re willing to accept the risks of going DIY. Minimize these risks to your valuables by packing them up in sturdy boxes with plenty of bubble wrap.

You can get more tips by reading our guide to moving with high-value items.
