When moving to Maryland, it is natural to be curious about the moving cost. However, it is a challenge to provide a specific amount as there are no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to the moving cost to Maryland.
Because, a long-distance moving cost to Maryland is determined by several factors including the distance, the volume of household items you move, and the mode of transport you choose. The moving company you hire also has its criteria in deciding the cost.
Maryland is spread over 12,407 square miles and ‘where in Maryland you move to’ and ‘from where you are moving’ are highly crucial in deciding the moving cost.
Moving to Maryland from Connecticut, New York or Washington D.C. will be cheaper than moving from Montana, California, or Oregon.
Here’s an approximate moving cost from different states to Maryland
|From State||Studio/1 bedroom||2-3 bedroom||4+ bedroom|
When you prepare a moving cost estimate to Maryland, consider the following factors:
The volume of your household belongings is vital in determining the moving cost. The more household items you have, the costlier the move will be.
For a moving company, the distance between two locations and the fuel cost along with the time taken to cover the distance will be crucial in calculating the final moving cost.
You make opt for packing services but remember that the cost for packing material brought in by the mover in Maryland would be added to the total moving cost.
While moving, you would opt for an additional service, which may be anything from disassembling and reassembling furniture, moving specialty items, and moving supplies provided by movers. This would reflect in the total moving cost.
Maybe you will require additional space to stock your belongings in Maryland. The moving company may provide you a storage unit but the rent would be added to the total moving cost.
The moving cost and moving date are interrelated. In summer, the moving cost will be higher as most people prefer moving during this time of the day. You need to schedule moving in winter if you want to relocate on a cheaper budget.
Taking additional insurance against the household stuff that you move is a nice move. But it will add up to the total moving cost.
When you move within a 100-mile radius or within the boundaries of Maryland, it becomes a local move and a mover in Maryland calculates the cost differently from interstate or long-distance moving.
In Maryland, a local moving cost is calculated on an hourly basis, which means you will be billed based on how many workers are required to complete the task at a specific time.
The average cost is $50-$75 per mover per hour and moving a normal1-bedroom home would require a minimum of 2 laborers to work for 2 hours in addition to the 1 hour drive time. This means you would need to pay for at least 3 hours for 2 movers, which would be something between $250 and $300 unless your move needs more hours or more people.
To get a clearer picture of moving cost within Maryland, 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 move outside Maryland, long-distance or cross-country, a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company is the best. However, to move within the state, you’ve got many cheaper options.
Different ways to move somewhere inside Maryland
When you feel the need to move professionally, hire a full-service moving company in Maryland, which will pack your belongings, load the truck, unload it, and unpack the belongings, all for a cost. On a moving day, it will relieve you from all the anguish related to moving.
However, a few people feel that a full-service moving company is highly expensive and instead hire a partial moving service company that can help to load the truck and unload it at the new home. A partial moving service company is cheaper and also offers a professional touch to your moving process.
You can take a truck on rent and fill your belongings into it to drive to the new home in Maryland. Moving this way, you’ll save hundreds of dollars as the only money you need to spend is the truck rental, which may come between $30 and $47 per day plus the fuel cost.
When you are in no mood to drive a truck, hire a portable container. Fill your belongings into it at your convenience and inform the moving company. The container will be delivered to the new home in a few days. In Maryland, a portable container may cost you about $400 to $500 to move your belongings within 50 miles.
When you have just a limited volume of household belongings, you don’t need a truck, instead hire a utility trailer and fill your stuff into it. Once you are done with it, tow it behind your vehicle and drive to the new home.
You can even move the home in your personal car. But your household items need to be limited to fit inside a car. You can squeeze them into the car with open seats, floors, and a trunk. You can also take the help of a friend and his car when you feel the stuff is beyond what the car can store.
Though you’ve got multiple options to move within Maryland, moving interstate or cross-country from the state is 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.
You can pick a DIY option while moving within Maryland but to move cross-country, this is not a safe bet because 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.
Driving a truck to the next state or a 100-mile distance is fine but not to 1,000 miles or more. For that, you’ve got two options:
Normally, people choose a full-service moving company as it spares them from every moving-related tension. A full-service moving company in Maryland will handle special items and will also take up additional add-ons whenever required.
If a full-service moving company does not fit it into your budget, hire a partial moving service provider as it is cheaper but helps you load and unload the truck.
Similarly, you may look into the moving container options.

When you hire a moving company in Maryland, it is responsible to relocate every household item including special items and expensive ones. And you need to be extra cautious as your precious items reaching the wrong hands is the last thing you want. Make sure the moving company is verified and licensed and also that the mover has a minimum of 5 years of experience in relocating homes.
Fortunately, you are hiring a mover in our network and we can vow for the experience and reliability of companies in our pool.
However, in case you’re hiring a mover in Maryland outside us, you need to confirm:
You need to ensure that animals are in their cat/dog carrier prior to the movers arriving at the home. Animals are curious and can get underfoot. If your dog isn’t good around strangers please have them tied up or in their carrier. The moving company cannot transport any live animal; no dogs, cats, fish, or reptiles are allowed in the truck.
No, your dress drawers can stay full but be sure to remove any breakables.
If you are moving locally, frozen foodstuff can be okay to stay in the freezer for approximately 4 hours and the moving team will have no problem moving it. Make sure the movers know about it and the freezer is one of the last things that are loaded onto the removal vehicle so it can be offloaded first.
No, never make an advance payment in cash before the household items reach the new home. A genuine moving company in Maryland will never demand advance payment as it is confident about its quality of service. And whenever a moving company demands cash payment in advance, you should drop the plan as it can be a moving scam.
When you approach a moving company in Maryland, you need to consider:
Usually, auto moving companies handle the transport of cars. They are specialized in car moving and the costs are calculated differently. However, a few home moving companies also help you move cars to the new home. To know more about auto moving, read the MoverJunction auto moving guide.
