What to know about moving in Alexandria

How much do movers cost in Alexandria?

Prices for professional moving services vary depending on how far you’re moving. If you’re moving locally (within 100 miles of your current home), you’ll pay somewhere between
$550–$2,000. If you’re moving long-distance, the range goes up to $2,000–$12,000.

These ranges are obviously immense, but there’s a reason. Moving costs heavily depend on several factors that are totally unique to your move. For example, if you’re moving out of a single-bedroom apartment, your move will be cheaper than that of someone moving out of a five-bedroom home.

Because every moving customer’s price is so unique to their situation, it’s virtually impossible to predict moving costs without knowing the details. That’s what moving estimates are for. Before you book your moving services, your mover will send an estimator to your home to tally up your belongings and give you a customized pricing estimate.

Only then will you know how much your move will cost. Luckily, getting an estimate is free, so if your estimate is too high, you can cancel your move without losing money. Also, since estimates are free, you should actually get more than one. Some moving companies are cheaper than others, so ask a few different movers in your area to send estimators. That way, you’ll know which mover near you is the cheapest.

How can I move with no money?

While saving up for your move ahead of time and paying with cash is usually the best way to finance your move, it isn’t always a realistic option. Sometimes, you have to move without sufficient savings. If that’s the boat you’re in, you have three options:

All of these options come with their own drawbacks, but they can make your move happen without requiring you to save up for months before moving day. If you’re moving on a shoe-string budget, read our guide to financing your move for more tips and advice.
