1. How much does it cost to move a 1 bedroom apartment?

  • Let's calculate this 1 bedroom move cost from a ground floor to another ground floor apartment within a 10 mile radius to get a general ideal.

  • With an average size apartment between 400 to 500 square feet should take on average between 2 and 3 hours at a cost between $250 to $300.

2. What's the difference between a flat rate move and an hourly rate move?

  • A hourly rate move is based on hours spent on a move from the beginning to end. Extra cost can be a trip charge, sometime fuel and miles charge, (vary s from company to company). 

  • A flat rate move is based on inventory, miles, trip charge, stairs, load and unload distance. Some moving companies will also charge for fuel and extra stops along the way.

  • So comparing the two types of moves, a flat rate move with cost in writing are most often the least expensive.

3. How much does it cost for movers and packers?

  • You can get both estimates for your move but the best thing to do is get separate cost for moving and packing so you can decide to use both services or pack your own boxes.

  • Packing can also come at two different cost whereas the shipper supplies the boxes and packing material or the carriers supplies the materials and labor for packing

  • You can follow "more on packing" to get a better understanding and precise pricing for this service.

4. Can I get movers to load my my truck?

  • Hiring movers to load or unload your rental truck can be fairly inexpensive and often a moving company may reduce their trip charge by half. Normally a crew can load or unload a 14 foot to 18 foot truck between one and two hours. 

  • South Coast Movers will also bring out moving equipment so the customer does not have to spend money on equipment rentals.

5. How much do movers charge for a local move?

  • Actually a local move is considered a move from a city to any other city within that state. So getting to the typical question as being a "local mover" close to one's zip code or neighborhood . Make sure you express that finding with that moving company to see if they will reduce the cost of their trip charge.
