What to know about moving in Arlington

What’s the cost of living in Arlington?

Every month, the average resident of Arlington pays $1,646 for necessities like rent, food, gas for their car, and utilities.1 This total is relatively high compared to the living costs in other US cities, though it doesn’t make Arlington the most expensive city in Texas.

Both Austin ($1,759) and Plano ($2,007) have bigger monthly living costs, mostly because rent in both cities is much higher than in Arlington.

How fast is Arlington growing?

With a 2020 population of 401,047, Arlington is the seventh-largest city in Texas, and it’s currently growing at a rate of 0.18% every year.2 When compared to the national average growth rate of 0.9% a year,3 Arlington’s growth is relatively sluggish, though it did grow much quicker in past decades.

This makes Arlington a great option if you want to live in a moderately-large city that won’t get too big for your tastes anytime soon.

How much does a professional move in Arlington cost?

In general, a full-service move with a professional moving crew that does all the packing, loading, and driving for you can cost anywhere from $550 to $12,000.

Local moves usually cost between $550 and $2,000, while long-distance moves (moves over 100 miles) can cost $2,000–$12,000 depending on how much stuff you’re moving, exactly how far you’re moving, and what time of year you move.

Unfortunately, the variability of these factors makes it impossible to pinpoint the price of your move until you get an estimate from a moving company.

Pro tip: get estimates from multiple companies if getting the cheapest price is important to you. Every moving company charges differently for its services, so the only way to know you’re getting the best price is to get estimates from as many movers as you can.

Learn more by reading our guide to moving costs.

Should I move myself or hire movers?

Budgeting for your move is all about balancing cost and convenience. Doing the work yourself is the best way to make your move cheaper, but that affordability comes with heaps of stress and hard labor. On the other hand, hiring professionals to do the work means you don’t have to worry—or sweat—as much on moving day, but it can cost a pretty penny.

If neither of these extremes sounds appealing to you, then a hybrid move might be more to your liking. Do as much of the work as you can handle and hire professionals for everything else.

Hybrid moves come in all shapes and sizes. Some hybrid movers pack their stuff themselves but hire the pros to deliver it all for them. Others hire moving labor crews to load rental trucks and then they drive them themselves. The ways to mix and match moving services like this are almost endless, giving you complete control over the price and ease of your move.

To get more ideas and better understand the pros and cons of different move types, read our guide to moving yourself vs. hiring movers.
