While you prepare a moving cost estimate to Alabama, the following factors need to be considered:
The volume of household stuff you prefer to move is crucial in determining the moving cost. The more household belongings you have, the costlier the moving will be.
For a moving company in Alabama, the distance between two locations – from where you move and to where you move – is vital in deciding the moving cost. The fuel charges, mode of transport, and a few other factors related to travel are considered by the mover.
A moving company will help you pack the belongings on the moving day. However, it will add the cost for packing materials to the total moving cost.
When you avail an additional service like handling a special item or dissembling furniture and reassembling it, the mover will add the price to the total moving cost.
While moving to Alabama, in case the home is smaller and you need additional space to store your stuff, consider hiring a storage unit. And if the moving company is offering you one, you need to remember that the rental will reflect on the total moving cost.
The date of moving is highly important in terms of the total moving budget. Summers are expensive as most people tend to pack their homes in this season. However, moving in winter is cheaper as the traffic is too low and the chances to get discounts are higher. Similarly, public holidays are also costlier to move to in the US.
An additional insurance against the household stuff you move is a good decision but it will get added up to the total moving cost.
Any move within the state, often within a 100-mile radius is addressed as a local move, and movers in Alabama calculate the costs differently for such moves. Usually, local moves are charged on an hourly basis depending on how many laborers are required to complete the task.
In Alabama, the average cost to move within the state could roughly be around $50-$75 per mover per hour. Usually, a minimum of 2 workers would require hours to complete the task in addition to the 1 hour drive time. This means you’ll be paying for at least 3 hours for 2 movers. The lowest amount you can expect to pay in Alabama for a local move would be between $250 and $300 unless your move needs more hours or more people.
To get a clearer picture of moving cost within Alabama, consider the following:
|No. of bedrooms||No. of movers and hours||Approximate cost|
|1 bedroom||2 movers and 3 hours||$250-$500|
|2 bedroom||3 movers and 5 hours||$300-$750|
|3 bedroom||4 movers and 7 hours||$500-$1200|
|4 bedroom||5 movers and 9 hours||$1,200-$4,000|

This will save you hundreds of dollars.

The easiest and cheapest way to relocate the home in Alabama is to rent a truck, fill your belongings into it and drive to the new home. The only cost you need to bear is the truck rental, which may be somewhere around $30 to $47 per day plus the fuel cost.
When hiring a mover or driving a truck is not in your plan, hire a portable moving container to fill your belongings as per convenience. The company will deliver the container to your new home in a few days. A portable container within 50 miles would cost you around $400 to $500.
You can rent a utility trailer to fill it with your household belongings and tow it behind your vehicle. This is one of the best ways to move home in Alabama when you’ve got just limited belongings to pack.
Squeeze all your belongings to the car and drive to the new home. It is extremely cheap but the items need to be limited to fit into the car. And if the stuff is slightly more than what your car can hold, call up your friend and take his help.
Unlike moving locally within Alabama, moving from or to another state is a little complicated.
While moving long-distance or cross-country, your moving options are greatly based on how far you’re moving and how much stuff you have.
To move long distance, the DIY option is not always the safe bet because the rental trucks cost a lot more when you’re renting them to drive cross country. Also, consider the gas price along with the drive time and all the hassles that come up while driving long distances.
Renting a truck and driving it to the next state will work but anything longer than that you might want to consider the following two options:
Hire a full-service moving company in Alabama that’ll pack the belongings, load the truck, and unload it at the new home. Though it is a little expensive to hire a full-service mover, it is worthy for long-distance moving.
In case the full-service moving budget is too fat for your pocket, consider a company offering partial moving services. You’ll get help to load and unload the stuff and you can rent a truck and drive yourself. Similarly, you may look into the moving container options.

However, a few home moving companies also deal with auto transport. To know more about auto moving, read the MoverJunction auto moving guide.
When you approach a moving company in Alabama, you need to consider:
Your need for a storage facility decides whether you should hire one. While moving to a smaller home, you might require extra space to stock your belongings and you can consider a moving company in Alabama that also offers a storage facility. However, the cost is based on the company as there’s no fixed price tag here. When you rent a storage unit along with the moving service maybe the company would offer a discount. Everything depends upon the mover or the storage unit company.
Usually, the household items reach the new home in 6-7 working days. When you ask the delivery date, a moving company in Alabama will consider multiple factors like the distance, climate conditions, and the route is taken. For local moving, the household items will reach the new home the same day or the next day. However, if the new home is in Vermont or Washington, or Idaho, you need to give a week or more.
