Moving Cost Michigan

Whether moving around, to, or from moving companies in Michigan will create a final total based on essential, required, and optional moving costs.

Essential Michigan moving costs

Essential moving costs are those that pay for your Michigan mover to load, transport and unload your belongings with a moving truck. These three services are critical to the moving process and either charged by weight and distance (interstate or long-haul moves) or by the hour (local moves).

If by the hour, you can expect essential costs to range between $500-$2500. If being charged by weight and distance, essential costs will be between $0.50-$1.00+ per pound/mile.

Required Michigan moving costs

Also known as access fees or access services, these required costs are non-negotiable and charged by moving companies in Michigan when there are obstacles that could delay or complicate the moving process. Required access fees are typically charged for things such as:

  • Multiple flights of stairs - $1-$3 per stair
  • Elevator use - $50-$100
  • Long walk from parking to door (more than 75 ft.) - $25-$100
  • Shuttle services for large trucks - $75-$200
  • Disconnecting/reconnecting appliances - $75-$200
  • Lock cutting (for storage moves) - $75-$250
  • Narrow doorways - $25-$100
  • Tight corners - $25-$100

To ensure you aren't hit with surprise fees on moving day, be sure to ask about what, if any, access fees you might be required to pay.

Optional Michigan moving costs

While not required, most people opt for additional services when they move to save time and energy. Optional services are typically billed a la cart and include things such as:

  • Packing/unpacking services - $25-$50 per hour
  • Furniture disassembly/reassembly - $75-$250
  • Crating for high-value items (pianos, art, etc.) - $75-$2000+
  • Storage - $50-$250 per month
  • Auto transport - $0.75-$1.00 per mile
  • Heavy object moving (pool table, piano, safe, etc.) - $100-$1000+
