You need to know that a long-distance/ cross-country moving cost is determined by multiple factors, such as the distance you cover, the total volume of items you prefer moving, the season you are moving, and the type of transport you prefer for moving.
Spread over 10,565 square miles, Massachusetts is one of the most beautiful states to live in. So from where are you moving to Massachusetts?

While you prepare a moving cost estimate to Massachusetts, consider the following factors:
The volume of household belongings you move to the new home is vital in determining the moving cost. The heavier your stuff is, it will be more expensive.
For a mover in Massachusetts, the distance between two locations – the starting point and your final destination along with the fuel cost is important in deciding the final moving cost.
When you hire a moving company, it will agree to take up the packing of household belongings and will bring the packing materials on the moving day. However, it will include the cost of packing materials in the final moving cost.
On the moving day, a mover will take up additional services upon request, which may include assembling or disassembling heavy furniture, moving a special item, or loading an item that’s not mentioned in the moving quote. However, it is chargeable and a mover will add it to the total moving cost.
Maybe the new home in Massachusetts is smaller in size and you need an additional storage space to stock the belongings. The moving company in Massachusetts you hired to move the home may provide a storage unit on demand. However, the rental will be added up to the total cost.
As most people prefer moving in summer, moving companies will be busy and your chances to obtain a discount on moving quotes are extremely rare. Instead, when you plan the move in winter, the costs will be extremely low.
You can insure additionally against stuff that is moved but it will get added up to the moving cost.
When you move within Massachusetts or a 100-mile radius, it becomes a local move. And in Massachusetts, the local moving is calculated differently. A mover in Massachusetts will calculate a local move on an hourly basis, which means the hours took plus the number of workers you need to complete the task.
Usually, you would need to shell out between $50 and $75 per mover per hour, and to move a one-bedroom apartment in Massachusetts, it would require home a minimum of 2 laborers and 2 hours in addition to the 1 hour drive time. This means you need to pay for at least 3 hours for 2 movers and the lowest amount you can expect a mover in Massachusetts to bill you 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 Massachusetts, 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’ve to move interstate or cross-country from Massachusetts, a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company is the safe bet. However, to move within the state, you’ve got multiple options.
You can move locally even without hiring a moving company, but the household belongings need to be limited. This will save you hundreds of dollars.
Different ways to move somewhere inside Massachusetts
When you have a large volume of household belongings, hiring a professional moving company is the best bet. You can either hire a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company. While a full-service company can help you in every task associated with moving, including packing, loading, and unloading, a partial moving service can only help you load and unload the truck.
A partial moving service company is cheaper than a full-service mover in Massachusetts, making it a popular option.
When you have a limited volume of household belongings and you don’t feel the need to hire a professional moving company, take a truck on rent and fill your household belonging into it to drive to the new home. This option is extremely cheaper and you can plan the moving process as you wish. While you move the home this way, there’ll be no external internal interference 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.
You can hire a portable moving container and fill it with the household stuff as per convenience. After you inform the moving company, it will deliver the portable container to the new address in a few days. Usually, a portable container within 50 miles would cost you around $400 to $500.
When you feel there’s no need to hire a truck instead it can be moved in a trailer, hire a cargo or utility trailer and tow it behind your vehicle and drive to the new home.
Another cheapest way to relocate the home in Massachusetts is to squeeze all your belongings into the car and drive to the new home. If you feel the stuff will not completely fit into the car, ask a friend to carry the rest of the items in his car.
While you’ve multiple options to move within Massachusetts, moving from or to another state is a little complicated.
When you move long-distance, the options would greatly depend upon how far you’re moving and how much stuff you have.
To move within the state, the DIY option was the best bet but it won’t work for long-distance moving for economical reasons. This is because rental trucks cost high when you’re renting them to drive cross country, plus the gas charges and drive time along with the headaches 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 moving cross country is highly challenging and there are two options for you to consider:
When you hire a full-service moving company in Massachusetts, it would take up the entire tasks involved, from packing to unpacking, assembling, and disassembling your furniture to driving the truck and loading and unloading all the items. The moving process will get a professional touch and will be done faster.
Though convenient, a full-service moving company is costlier and those who find the quotes going beyond the budget can rent a partial moving service where you’ll receive help to load and unload the stuff into a truck.
You can even consider hiring a portable container to move long distance.

When you hire a moving company in Massachusetts, it is given the right to handle all your belongings, including special items and costly items. It is your responsibility to ensure that your precious items are not falling into wrong hands and the moving process will end up smooth and hassle-free. Make sure that the company is genuine and has a clean track record. The company should be licensed and registered and also shouldn’t have changed the name in the recent past.
While you’re hiring a mover through MoverJunction, you can be confident about its track record as our network only has licensed and registered moving companies.
However, in case you’re hiring a mover in Massachusetts outside us, you need to confirm:
Hire a professional moving company in Massachusetts to pack your belongings. Being an expert in packing, the mover will bring high-quality packing materials and cartons and ensure that all china, glassware, and crystal items are wrapped individually before packing, all rugs and carpets are rolled and wrapped, all large or valuable furniture pieces and appliances are padded for transport and that other such measures are taken on your behalf.
When you approach a moving company in Massachusetts, you need to consider:
In normal cases, a mover delivers household stuff within the state the same day or the next. However, if you are moving cross-country, you need to give a week or more as the truck needs to cross multiple states. The delivery date is greatly influenced by multiple factors like the distance, climate conditions, and the route is taken. You can ask the mover in Massachusetts about the delivery date and most often it would be delivered within the assured date.
When you discuss with a moving company in Massachusetts, it will offer a rough estimate and will send a representative to the home to take the stock of every item. After analyzing every household item at home, both big and small, the representative will provide the final quote, which you can further negotiate. However, never agree to a moving quote that’s provided over the phone and you should ask the company to send a representative to the home to look at the entire belongings.
No, you should never pay in full before the household items reach the new home. A genuine moving company 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.
