Every move to Washington DC is different and there are no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to the moving cost to Washington DC.

Why so?

Because, 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.

Here, you need to remember that Washington DC is spread over 113,990 square miles and you might be moving from the other side of the US or maybe from the next state (California or Nevada). Based on where to move from and where in Washington DC you move to, the moving cost will be different.

While you prepare a moving cost estimate to Washington DC, the following factors need to be considered:

  • Size of the move:

    The heavier you stuff, the higher the moving cost will be.

  • Distance between your origin and destination in Washington DC:

    The mileage between your current location and the destination in Washington DC is crucial while calculating the moving cost.

  • Packing services:

    While hiring a moving company to pack the household belongings, the cost for packing materials and packing services will be added to the moving cost.

  • Moving add-ons:

    Any specific add-on service will impact the moving cost. This includes disassembling and reassembling furniture, moving specialty items, and moving supplies provided by movers such as a stretch wrap, felt pads, and mattress bags.

  • Storage:

    Post moving to the new destination in Washington DC, you might require a storage facility to stock your belongings for a specific period and the cost will be added to the moving quote.

  • Moving date:

    The date you prefer to move is highly crucial as moving costs are greatly influenced by seasons. For example, a weekend moving or a holiday moving is more expensive than a weekday. Usually, people prefer moving in summer and the quotes tend to be highly expensive during this period. Also, summer in Washington DC is extremely hot.

  • Insurance:

    The additional insurance against the belongings that are moved will add up to the moving cost.

Movers generally call a move within the state a local move as mostly it would be less than 100 miles. When you are moving locally, somewhere within the 100-mile radius, the costs are calculated differently by the moving companies. Movers charge on an hourly basis depending on how many laborers are required to complete the task.

The average cost 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, which means you’ll be paying for at least 3 hours for 2 movers. This means, to move within Washington DC, the lowest amount you can expect to pay would be between $250 and $300, unless your move needs more hours or more people.

To get a clearer picture of moving cost within Washington DC, 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
However, you need to remember that these are just approximate costs and the real costs may vary based on different factors.

To know more about local moving costs, read the MoverJunction guide on local moving quotes.

Unlike moving outside Washington DC, you don't need to completely depend upon a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company to move within the state if cost is a factor. You can even consider moving without professional support, but for that the household belongings you prefer moving should be limited.

Different ways to move somewhere inside Washington DC

  • Hire a full-service or partial moving service company

    Local moving companies in Washington DC deliver both full-service and partial moving services.

    Since full-service moving companies are expensive for its exclusive services, certain people prefer partial moving service companies. On MoverJunction, you will find licensed local movers in Washington DC, delivering full-service and partial-moving services, from which you can pick the type of moving company of your preference

  • Hire a truck and load it with your stuff

    You can hire a moving truck and pack every household belonging to load them into the truck. Once you are done, drive it to the new home and unload the truck. This is the cheapest way to move the home and 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.

  • Hire a portable container

    When you raise a request to the moving company for a portable container after agreeing to the moving quote, it is delivered to your doorstep. You can fill the stuff into the container at your convenience and inform the company. The container will be delivered to your new address from where you can collect them. This is convenient when you are moving within Washington DC but do not want to drive a truck. A portable container within 50 miles would cost you around $400 to $500.

  • Rent a tow behind cargo or utility trailer

    Hiring a utility trailer and towing behind your vehicle is an easy way to move your stuff within Washington DC. But your vehicle must have a trailer hitch for that.

    While hiring a cargo trailer, here are a few things to consider:

    • How much weight your vehicle can carry
    • What you’re hauling
    • Which type of moving trailer you need
  • Move the stuff in your car

    You can consider moving your belongings in your vehicle when the total volume is just limited. It is extremely cheap but you need to squeeze the belongings into a car with open seats, floors, and a trunk. And if you find the volume a little more than what can be fit inside your vehicle, take the help of a friend and his car.

As opposed to moving locally within Washington DC, moving from or to another state complicates the move a bit more.

Here the moving options available to you may vary greatly depending on how far you’re moving and how much stuff you have.

For long distance moves, the DIY option doesn’t always work or is the most economical. This in part due to the fact that rental trucks cost a lot more when you’re renting them to drive cross country, not to mention the gas and drive time and all the headaches that come with driving long distances.

You may still get away with renting a truck and moving yourself, if you’re just moving a couple hundred miles or just one state over, but anything longer than that you might want to consider the following two options:

Full Service Moving:

Hire a full service moving company and let them handle all aspects of your move. From packing to unpacking, assembling and dissamebling your furniture to driving the truck and loading and unloading all the items, everything will be taken care of saving you all the hassle. Of Course all this comes at a price, but trust us, for moves that are long distance it definitely worth it.

Partial Moving Services:

If the full service, white-glove option is too expensive and out of budget, you may opt for companies offering partial moving services. Companies offer labor help that help you load and unload the stuff and you can rent a truck and drive yourself. Similarly you may look into the moving containers options.

Whichever way you decide to go, make sure to compare both options.

When you assign a mover the task to relocate the home, you are entrusting it with the entire personal belongings which may include even expensive items. You need to know the company to ensure that the household items are not in the wrong hands.

Fortunately, MoverJunction’s network only has licensed and registered moving companies. We admit a mover into our pool only after it is completely verified and ensured that the track record is clean.

However, in case you’re hiring a mover in Washington DC outside us, you need to confirm:

  • The original name, address, and phone number
  • Company web address and email address

  • License and registration details

You need to know that the moving costs to Washington DC are not marked in stone and can be tweaked by negotiating with the moving company. One of the best ways to negotiate is to collect a minimum of 4 moving quotes to Washington DC and demand the movers to tweak the costs as the competing companies are willing to slash prices. Since no moving company would want to lose the business, it would be ready to trim the quote.

Some other ways to bring down the moving cost include:

  • Sell off the unwanted items to move with less stuff
  • Get free packing boxes
  • Move during the offseason
  • Hire a moving company as early as possible
  • Cut down additional services that cost extra

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

You assume moving to be an easy task. However, when you start the process on the moving day, you will realize how challenging it is. But since there’s no time left, you will have no option to hire a mover and instead will have to continue moving yourself. Your home may have heavy furniture or antique items that require special care while moving. Any slight mistake while carrying a heavy item can cause serious injury or miscalculation can damage a piano or grandfather clock.

Hiring a moving company resolves all these concerns. If the moving cost is a stumbling block, search for deals and discounts by moving companies. When you compare the manpower, stress and risk put into DIY, hiring a moving company is the safe bet.

Before you hire a moving company in Oklahoma, confirm it is properly licensed and insured. The federal law requires all interstate movers to register with the Federal Government and you can verify this in the U.S. DOT system.

You also need to check the track record of the company, such as there has been no name change or grave client complaint in the past. Check the company’s profile on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), whether it is accredited by the BBB.

While you hire a mover in Oklahoma through MoverJunction, the credibility is assured as we include a mover in our network only after scrutinizing its background. This makes it always better to hire a mover through us rather than searching outside.

Moving scams are on the rise and you need to be extremely cautious while hiring a mover. When you approach a mover in Oklahoma, ensure it is properly registered, certified, and licensed. You have the right to demand the license number and if a mover is hesitant to reveal the number, drop the plan as it can be a rogue company.

Similarly, the moving quote offered by the mover needs to be realistic. When you feel it is too low, ask the company representative for the reason and a possible breakdown of the quote. Because a few movers would demand additional charges on the moving day for flimsy reasons to compensate for the unrealistic cost which would upset the entire moving budget.

However, approaching a moving company in Oklahoma through MoverJunction rescues you from moving scams as we have only genuine movers in our pool.

When you approach a moving company in Oklahoma, you need to consider:

  • Reputation
  • Insurance
  • The company’s policy
  • Experience
  • Cost of service
  • Cancellation policy
  • Referrals

As a rule of thumb, no genuine moving company will demand to be paid in advance for their services. This rule applies not just inside Oklahoma, but throughout the country.

It is however common for moving companies to demand a small fee to reserve your move. This fee should only be a small deposit (maybe 5% of your estimate) and should be applied towards your moving cost.

Whenever someone is demanding full advance payment or a high deposit, not just in Oklahoma but any state, you need to be cautious as it can be a rogue mover.

Hiring a moving truck is the cheapest way to move the home. However, renting a truck might only be a good option when you’re moving a few miles or anything under a 100 miles. For moves that are longer than that renting a truck and moving yourself might not be as cheap you may think. Consider the per mile charge of rental trucks, cost of gas, insurance, risk of traffic tickets and/or getting into an accident and damaging your belongings and/or getting hurt. In addition, for moving cross country there are several federal laws surrounding regular stops at weigh stations etc that might get you in trouble. For these reasons, renting a truck for long distance moves might not be suitable.
