Giving an exact Colorado moving estimate is impossible. Ask why – because Colorado is spread over 104,094 square miles and to calculate the moving cost, we need to know where in Colorado are you moving to and what your current location is.
A long-distance moving cost is decided by multiple factors including the distance, the volume of the belongings, and the mode of transport you choose. Also, the moving company you hire matters in the overall cost.
You might be moving from the other side of the US or maybe from the next state (Wyoming, Nebraska, or Kansas). Based on where to move from and where in Colorado you move to, the moving cost will be different.
Here’s an approximate moving cost from different states to Colorado
|From State||Studio/1 bedroom||2-3 bedroom||4+ bedroom|
While making a moving cost estimate to Colorado, the following factors need to be considered:
The heavier the household items you move, the higher the moving cost will be.
The distance between the locations you move is crucial while calculating the moving cost.
You hire the packing services and the moving cost will comprise the cost for packing materials and packing services.
While you include any additional service to the quote, the mover will add it to the total cost. This can be anything from disassembling and reassembling furniture, moving specialty items, and moving supplies provided by movers.
Post reaching Colorado, if you require storage space to stock your household belongings, you can ask the moving company in Colorado to provide it but the rent would be added to the total cost.
You need to know how the moving cost and moving date are related. For example, a weekend moving or a holiday moving is costlier than a weekday. Usually, most people prefer moving in summer and the quotes are highly expensive during this period. It is better to move in winter when the costs will be extremely low.
When you take additional insurance against stuff that is moved, it will add up to the moving cost.
For a mover, the moving within the state is local moving, especially within a 100-mile radius. While moving within Colorado, a mover would charge differently, on an hourly basis. This means a local mover in Colorado will calculate the cost on an hourly basis depending on how many laborers are required to complete the task.
To move locally, you would require shelling out approximately about $50-$75 per mover per hour. In general, a minimum of 2 workers would require 2 hours to complete the task in addition to the 1 hour drive time and this means you would need to shell out for at least 3 hours for 2 movers. This means, for a local move within Colorado, you need to be prepared to spend something between $250 and $300 unless your move needs more hours or more people.
To get a clearer picture of moving cost within Colorado, 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|
To know more about local moving costs, read the MoverJunction guide on local moving quotes.
While moving outside Colorado, you need to depend upon a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company but to move within the state; there are multiple options if the cost is the factor.
You can even consider moving without professional support, but for that the household belongings you take along with the need to be limited.
Different ways to move somewhere inside Colorado
While moving locally, you can hire a local moving company in Colorado, either that delivers full-service or partial moving services.
As a full-service moving company is costlier for its exclusive services, some people prefer partial moving service companies. On MoverJunction, you will find licensed local movers in Colorado, delivering full-service and partial-moving services, from which you can pick the type of moving company of your preference.
The easiest way to move locally is to hire a moving truck. Pack every household belonging and load them into the truck. Once you are done, drive it to the new home in Colorado and unload the truck. The truck rental is the only cost that you need to spend here, which may be somewhere around $30 to $47 per day plus the fuel cost.
When you don’t feel like driving a truck, you can hire a portable moving container. The container will be delivered to your doorstep and you can fill it with your household stuff as per convenience. Once you have filled the container, the company would deliver it to your new address. A portable container within 50 miles would cost you around $400 to $500.
Hiring a utility trailer and towing behind your vehicle is an easy way to move your stuff within Colorado. But your vehicle must have a trailer hitch for that.
If you have just a limited volume of stuff to move, you don’t require any hired vehicle. Instead, you can squeeze the belongings into your car and drive to the new home. If required, you can ask a friend to help you with his car as well.
Unlike moving locally within Colorado, moving from or to another state is slightly complicated.
While moving interstate, the moving options would have a great impact based on where you’re moving and how much volume you are taking along with.
As the DIY option is not a safe bet for long-distance moves for the fact that rental trucks cost a lot more when you’re renting them to drive cross country and the high gas prices plus the drive time and other issues that come with driving long distances.
You may still consider renting a truck and moving, if you’re just moving a couple of hundred miles or just one state over, but anything longer than that you might want to consider the following two options:
A full-service moving company helps you with every aspect of moving, which includes packing, loading the truck, unloading, and unpacking. However, it is costlier to hire a full-service mover in Colorado.
While spending a big amount to move is not there in your plan, consider hiring a partial moving service company that can help you load the truck and unload it at the new home. You need to pay less to a partial moving service company as the service only includes loading and unloading the truck.
Whichever way you decide to go, compare both options in detail.

However, in case you’re hiring a mover in Colorado outside us, you need to confirm:
Do not assume moving to be an easy job. It requires high patience and extra physical strength as you might need to handle heavy furniture, antique items, or glassware. As a professional moving company that has the knack for lifting such items, it would be always beneficial to have a team at your side.
Any slight mistake while carrying a heavy item can cause serious injury or miscalculation can damage a piano or grandfather clock.
Instead, when you hire a moving company in Colorado to handle the task, it would be done in a short span, much efficiently.
While hiring a moving company, you need to note that you are permitting it to handle the entire household belongings, which even may have expensive items. As a rogue mover taking charge of your home is the last thing you want, always be cautious to check the license and registration details of your mover in Colorado. The federal law requires all interstate movers to register with the Federal Government and you can confirm the details in the U.S. DOT system.
Ensure that you check the track record of the mover and confirm that it has not changed the name in the past and holds a clean track record. Also, you need to verify the company’s profile on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), whether it is accredited by the BBB.
However, if you approaching a mover in Colorado through MoverJunction, you are fortunate that our network only has genuine moving companies as we admit a mover only after thoroughly cross-checking the background.
You need to know that rogue movers are always in search of prey and to escape from them, be always extra cautious while hiring a mover. Always hire a moving company in Colorado that’s properly registered, certified, and licensed. Before you sign a contract with the mover, ask for the registration details and as per the law, the company needs to reveal the details related to license and registration. If it is hesitant to reveal the number, move away immediately as it may lead to a scam.
The moving quotes should always be realistic. Do not be a victim to an extremely low moving quote as it might be a trap to grab the business. However, to compensate for the loss the mover would demand additional charges on the moving day for reasons like the absence of an elevator or the volume being higher than agreed upon.
However, you can trust MoverJunction as the movers in our network believe in genuine business.
Always approach a moving company a minimum of 6 weeks in advance. This would give time for the representatives to visit your home and take stock of the total household belongings. When you have 6 weeks in hand, multiple movers can visit the home and provide the final quote, based on which you will filter a mover.
When you approach a moving company in Colorado, you need to consider:
Usually, your household items would reach the home in 6-7 working days. However, there can be a change of 2-3 days based on weather, road conditions, and the route taken. If you are moving within Colorado, you will receive the items on the same day or the next day. But if you are moving to Georgia or Vermont or any state that is on the other side of the country, you need to give a week’s time.
