There’s information about its services – whether it is offering just local moving or deliver both local and long-distance moving services. Also, the MC and DOT numbers will appear, proving the mover’s credibility.

The ‘hours of operation’ of the moving company will also appear, helping you decide when you need to call it for a purpose.
While moving to Delaware from a faraway state (Washington, California, Oregon), your choice would be a moving company from your location. Remember that MoverJunction’s network is wide and includes movers from every state, making it possible for you to hire a mover from your state and the process is just the same as we talked about in Delaware.
There’s no ‘one cost' for moving to Delaware as the long–distance moving cost, like anywhere in the US, is determined by multiple factors.
What are those factors?
While moving to Delaware, the moving company you hire will consider the distance, the volume of household items you move, and the mode of transport you choose. Also, the mover will have specific factors that decide the cost.
Delaware is spread just over 1,982 square miles but where in Delaware you move is also a big factor when we calculate the moving cost. You may be moving to Delaware from a neighboring state (Maryland, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania) or a faraway state (Idaho, Arizona, or Washington) and the cost would be different based on where you are moving in.
Here’s an approximate moving cost from different states to Delaware
|From State||Studio/1 bedroom||2-3 bedroom||4+ bedroom|
When you prepare the moving cost estimate to Delaware, you need to consider the following factors:
The total volume of household belongings you intend to move to the new home is crucial in determining the moving cost. The more belongings you take along with, the costlier the move will be.
While you hire a moving company in Delaware, it will consider the distance between two locations (the current home and the home you are moving to) in deciding the total moving cost.
A mover will pack the belongings but it will also charge you for the packing materials brought in.
The moving company your hire will bill you for every add-on service.
If you need additional storage in Delaware, you can rent one from the mover you hire. However, the rental will add up to the total moving cost.
Summer is the most preferred moving season for its long and sunny days. However, it is also highly expensive. Instead, when you decide to move in winter, the chances of getting attractive deals are high.
The additional insurance against the belongings you are moving will add up to the moving cost.
A move within the state or 100-mile radius is a local move and a moving company in Delaware calculates the local moving cost differently. Here, you need to pay on an hourly basis depending on how many laborers are required to complete the task.
While moving the home within Delaware, a minimum of 2 workers would require approximately 2 hours completing the task in addition to the 1 hour drive time. This means, to move a normal 1-bedroom home, you’ll be paying for at least 3 hours for 2 movers and the average cost is roughly around $50-$75 per mover per hour. In total, you may require paying between $250 and $300, unless your move needs more hours or more people.
To get a clearer picture of moving cost within Delaware, 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|

When you have to move outside Delaware, (interstate or long-distance), hiring a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company is the best option as you need to travel thousands of miles. However, to move locally in Delaware, you don’t need to hire a professional company but multiple options can save you hundreds of dollars.
Different ways to move somewhere inside Delaware
When you rent a moving company in Delaware, it relieves the pain of moving. With an experienced team of workers, the company will help you pack your belongings, load the truck, unload it, and arrange them inside the home. Your relocation will get a professional touch and the process will be fast and effortless.
As a full-service moving company is expensive, you can even go for a partial moving service company if the budget is beyond your reach. However, the partial moving company will only help you load the truck and unload it.
When you feel there is no need to hire a professional company, you can rent a truck and fill it with the household stuff to drive it to the new home in Delaware. It is cheaper and you have the freedom to take moving-related decisions. 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.
Portable moving containers are comparatively new and have gained popularity for the convenience to fill them with your stuff. The company will deliver a container to your doorstep and you can fill your belongings in it as and when you feel like. Once you have filled it, the company will deliver it to your new address. A portable container within 50 miles would cost you around $400 to $500.
One of the easiest ways to relocate the home is to rent a utility trailer and tow it behind your vehicle. Fill your household belongings in the utility trailer but you need to make sure that you have just a limited volume of items.
Another easiest way to move the household belongings is to squeeze them into your car. Maybe it is a little tough to squeeze everything into the car with open seats, floors, and a trunk but this is extremely cheap and you don’t have to spend anything extra.
While moving within Delaware, you had multiple options, mostly DIY but moving interstate or cross-country are a little different. Here, your moving options are greatly based on how far you’re moving and how much you are taking along with you.
Though the DIY was a good option to move within Delaware, never try this to move cross-country as the trucks are expensive to drive cross country and not to mention the gas, drive time, and all the headaches that come with driving long distances.
To move cross-country or long distance, you’ve two options:
When you hire a full-service moving company to relocate the home cross-country, the process becomes easier, smoother, and comfortable. A full-service moving company in Delaware will handle special items and can also take up additional add-ons whenever required.
A partial moving service company is a good option if a full-service mover is beyond your budget. The services are cheaper but help you load and unload the truck. You can also ask for packing services but you may require paying an extra amount.

When you hire a moving company in Delaware, you’re entrusting it the task to handle even expensive items at home. And that makes it important to verify the background of the mover. It should also be licensed to move interstate.
Verify the moving company’s profile on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), whether it is accredited by the BBB. A few movers even switch names to evade the authorities and it becomes important to ensure that the mover you hire has not changed names in the past.
You’re lucky to hire a moving company through MoverJunction as we’ve only licensed and registered moving companies. We verify the license and confirm its background before permitting a moving company into our network.
However, in case you’re hiring a mover in Delaware outside us, you need to confirm:
When you hire a moving company in Delaware, ensure it is properly licensed and insured. As per the US federal law, all interstate movers need to register with the Federal Government and you can confirm this in the U.S. DOT system.
Also, you need to check the track record of the mover as a few rogue movers would frequently change names to escape from authorities. Check the company’s profile on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), whether it is accredited by the BBB.
When you hire a mover in our Moving Directory, you can be confident about its quality of services as we hold detailed scrutiny of the background of every mover before adding it.
There should be a 6-week window between approaching the moving company and the date of moving. As you approach a minimum of 4 movers, each company will send a representative to your home to take the stock of the entire belongings before offering the final quote. After this, multiple levels of negotiation take place which will consume two weeks or more. Hence, it’s always good to maintain a 6-week gap.
When you approach a moving company in Delaware, you need to consider:
Usually, car moving companies deal with the transport of cars. They are specialized in auto moving and the costs are different from home moving. However, a few home moving companies also deal with auto transport. To know more about auto moving, read the MoverJunction auto moving guide.
Usually people hire a storage unit to stock their belongings when there is a shortage of space at the new home. When you rent a storage unit from the moving company, it does not guarantee any price cut but that depends upon your skill to negotiate. As there’s no fixed cost for a storage unit, it can be either cheaper or costlier. However, when you hire a storage facility from the moving company you chose to relocate, you save a lot of time.
