Local moving costs tend to range between $500 and $3,500. These prices widely vary because they are influenced by the size of your apartment and the weight of goods being moved. A long-distance move for a similarly sized apartment will range from $5,000 upwards.
Moving companies in Utah will also charge for labor by the hour at a rate of $70 to $120.
Just as we mentioned above, moving companies don’t just take a look at your house and go ‘yep, that would be $5,000–you look rich’, moving companies in Utah follow the same criteria when making moving quotes so prices are bound to be similar. They include—but are not limited to:
Moving during certain months automatically means you would have no choice but to accept the increase in charges by movers in Utah. Moving companies in Utah charge more when there is an influx in the demand for their services, and this usually happens from April to September. You can get prices at least 20% cheaper if you move during the off-peak season.
Heavy goods need a larger crew and might require more vehicles. Moving companies in Utah will charge more if you will be moving heavy and many delicate items.
Accessorial charges are fees for additional services performed by the moving company in Utah beyond pick-up and delivery.
Stairs carry: The first flight of stairs will be free at pick-up and delivery, but additional flights will be charged at $75 per flight or will be based on the carrier’s tariff.
Elevator use: Moving companies in Utah will collect a one-time charge of $75 if the use of an elevator is required at origin or destination.
Long carry: If movers in Utah must park greater than 75 feet from your doorstep, a charge of $1 per foot will be incurred.
Shuttle services: Extra charges will be included in your moving costs where the use of a smaller vehicle is required to get to places inaccessible by a van.
