Safeway quoted us $11,887.50 to move everything out of a three-bedroom home in Los Angeles and into a home in Denver. While this is well within the competitive price range for full-service moves, it is on the higher end.
This price from Safeway Moving Systems included the following services:
- Loading and unloading
- Full-service packing
- Piano transport
- Furniture disassembly and reassembly
- Protective blanket-wrapping for furniture
- All transportation, taxes, tolls, mileage, labor, and fuel surcharges
- Basic liability coverage
This price includes all the bells and whistles that Safeway offers, so if you go with less deluxe service, your price would be lower than the one we got.
For example, if we hadn’t opted for full-service packing, our price would have been about $2,000 lower. Similarly, we could have knocked $250 off our price if we hadn’t added a piano to our inventory.
In addition to the fees for these special services, there are a lot of other factors going into this price:
- The time of year we requested our quote
- The amount of stuff we had on our inventory
- The distance we were moving
You shouldn’t just take our word for how much Safeway can cost. You’ll only know for sure how much the company will charge for your move if you get a quote of your own.
Keep in mind, though, that Safeway doesn’t offer instant online quotes. If you want to get a quote, it will entail a lot of back and forth with the company as they get your inventory and learn more about your move. Overall, It took us around three days to get the quote we’ve shared.
The good news is that Safeway offers binding quotes at the end of this lengthy process. This means that the quote you get is the price you’ll pay as long as nothing about your move changes last minute. No hidden fees. No additional charges. No rigamarole.
