How Much Do Movers Cost?

by | Sep 3, 2023

So, you are moving to Tampa Florida! Whether you are moving here from across the state or across the country, you will likely need Tampa movers. However, you may be wondering how much do movers cost?

The cost of movers depends largely on how much work you are willing to do, how far you are moving, how much stuff you have, and when you are moving to Tampa.

Moving is a back-breaking job, literally, not to mention stressful. The cost of moving to Tampa will depend on how much work you are willing to put in. Hiring professional Tampa movers is a good idea because you are able to customize the service to suit your needs. Do you need someone to pack all of your stuff, load the truck, drive, and unload the truck at your new home?

If so, you are looking at a top tier plan. This will typically include packing and unpacking as well as the movers, trucks, and heavy lifting. This option will save you time and stress but with additional moving costs. However, if you are looking for a more affordable moving option you may want to consider packing yourself and hiring moving for everything else.

Tampa moving companies, like Brothers EZ Moving, often offer moving packages at a slightly less expensive rate but in general, you should expect to pay at least $30 an hour. This does not include expenses for truck rental, fuel, or packing services.

Another factor that will affect how much it costs to move to Tampa is how much stuff you have. The amount of items you own directly correlates with costs. If you have a lot of stuff you will need a larger truck and a larger crew. For example, moving from a one-bedroom apartment to another will be cheaper than if you were moving from a three-bedroom single family home to another.

Typically with most Tampa moving companies, when moving a long distance, you are charged differently. Most Tampa movers charge based on the total weight of your things; which is naturally slightly more expensive than short-distance moves. Conversely, if you choose to rent the truck on your own you will still be responsible for fuel usage and mileage. Before committing to either, check with the company’s definition of long-distance.

Another aspect to consider when determining how much movers cost that is most often overlooked is when you plan on moving. Summer is by far the most popular time of the year for people to move, which means that rates can be higher than other times of the year. If at all possible, sign a short term lease before making the permanent move or aim for middle of the month middle of the week for the best deals.

Adan and Fil were efficient and handled items with care. I would use them again.
These guys were great. Very polite and professional. Hard workers and the move went well with no damages!And Gary is very patient with me as I had difficulties trying to get him paid through Zelle and had to get a business check but he was very patient and we got it all figured out. I would recommend this company for local moves.
Highly recommend this company. From estimate to final move, we received the best service from the office staff who explained and answered all our questions and the 2 young men who moved us taking all precautions with our items. Thank you for your transparency and professionalism.
