According to our 2021 data, the average cost of a local move with a National Van Agent is around $1,400. This price ranges from $700 to $3000. Your true price depends on the services you choose, the amount of movers in your crew, the distance of your move, the items you are moving, and when you need your move completed.
If you’re looking to save money September to April is the best time to schedule a move. The summer is considered peak season for movers because the weather is nice and the kids are out of school. Because summer is the busiest time of the year, expect higher costs. If you need to move during the summer, book months ahead to get a good price.
To find a reputable local mover, we suggest getting referrals from your friends and family. We also suggest checking out referral sources for any moving companies you are considering. Seeing their ratings on Yelp or the BBB is a good way to see their public opinion. Next, make sure your movers are licensed and insured, read the section below to learn more.
All legitimate local moving companies (intrastate movers) must have a license with their state’s Department of Transportation. Having a license with the DOT means the company has to offer liability protection. If they do not have a license with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, they cannot move outside the state lines.
The best time to move locally depends on where you live! This usually means the spring and summer months in the United States. However, there are states where the weather is nice all year-round. Moving demand slows down during the winter and fall because of the colder weather and changes in precipitation. If the weather is nice during your fall and winter, we suggest scheduling your move during this time. Because there is less demand to move during this time, there’s a chance for savings.
