While you make a moving cost estimate to Missouri, consider the following factors:
The volume of household belongings you prefer taking to the new home is important in determining the total moving cost. The more stuff you have, the costlier the moving will be.
A mover will consider the distance you move while relocating along with the fuel charges, mode of transport, and a few other factors related to travel.
The moving company you hired will help you pack your belongings. However, it will add the cost for packing materials to the total moving cost.
A moving company will charge for every extra service rendered during the moving process. It may help you handle special items or can disassemble and reassemble a piece of furniture but the cost will be added to the final bill.
After moving to Missouri, you may require an additional storage utility which can be hired from the moving company. However, the rental will reflect on the total moving cost.
You need to know that moving in summer is expensive as most people prefer relocating their homes during this time of the year. On the other hand, moving in winter is cheaper and you may get a handsome discount, based on your negotiation skills. Also, public holidays are costlier to move homes in the US.
When you take additional insurance against the household stuff. It is considered a good move. But it will get added up to the total moving cost.
When you move within a 100-mile radius or the boundaries of Missouri, a moving company calls it a local move. And the cost to move locally is calculated differently in Missouri from interstate or long-distance moving.
Movers in Missouri calculate the local moving cost 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.
In Missouri, 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 Missouri, 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 Missouri, long-distance or cross-country, you need to hire a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company, considering the distance, cost, and headaches on the road. However, to move within the state, you’ve got many cheaper options.
Different ways to move somewhere inside Missouri
You can hire a professional moving company to move within the state. A full-service moving company in Missouri will pack your belongings, load the truck, unload it, and unpack the belongings, all for a cost. And this relieves you all moving-related concerns on the moving day.
However, a full-service moving company is a little costlier and for some people, it would be more than what they had planned for relocation. And the best option is to hire a partial moving service company which is more affordable but at the same time gives the moving a professional touch.
When you don’t feel the need to hire a moving company, do it alone. Get a truck on rent and fill your belongings into it. Drive the truck to the new home in Missouri and you’ll save hundreds of dollars by moving this way. The only money you need to spend is the truck rental, which may come between $30 and $47 per day plus the fuel cost.
You can take a portable moving container on rent and fill your belongings into it at your convenience. Once you have filled the container, the company will deliver it to the new home. A portable container is extremely cheap In Missouri as it may cost you just about $400 to $500 to move your belongings within 50 miles.
When the stuff you need to move is limited, hire a utility trailer and fill your stuff into it. Tow the trailer behind your vehicle and drive to the new home in Missouri.
You can even move the home in your car. However, the household stuff needs to be limited to fit inside a car. You can squeeze them into the car with open seats, floors, and a trunk. Also, you can take the help of a friend and his car when you feel the stuff is beyond what the car can store.
While moving locally in Missouri, you’ve got multiple options. However, moving interstate or cross-country is altogether different and DIY is not a good option. While moving outside the state, our moving options are greatly based on how far you’re moving and how much you are taking along with you.

The belongings include both special and precious items and you need to be extra cautious as a trained and experienced mover can only ensure the safety of your belongings.

However, in case you’re hiring a mover in Missouri outside us, you need to confirm:
Make sure that animals are in their cat/dog carrier before the movers arriving at the home. Animals are curious and can get underfoot. If your dog isn’t good around strangers, tie it up or have it in its 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.
When you approach a moving company in Missouri, you need to consider:
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.
You need to remember that the quote you receive in the initial discussion is a rough estimate. Post the discussion, a moving representative will visit the home to take the stock of every item. After he analyzes every household item at home, both big and small, you will receive the final quote, which you can further negotiate. As a rule of thumb, never accept a moving quote that’s provided over the phone before a representative visits the home. If a mover does not seem to plan a home visit, you can request one. Because any quote without watching your home and the items there can lead to future complications.
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.
