Interestingly, a long-distance moving quote in the US is determined by many factors, such as the distance you need to cover, the volume of household stuff you move, the type of services you prefer, the mode of transit, and many other factors including the moving company you hire. And this makes the calculation of moving costs to Montana a little complicated.
You need to know that Montana is spread over 147,040 square miles, to calculate the moving cost, it is important to know where in Montana you are moving to. Also, from which part of the US are you relocating to Montana? Because, moving here from neighboring states, such as Idaho, or North Dakota can be much cheaper than moving from a faraway state (for example; North Carolina, Vermont, or Maine).

When you prepare a moving cost estimate to Montana, consider the following factors:
While you move to Montana, the cost will be greatly influenced by the total volume of household belongings you move to the new home. The more household items you have, the costlier the move will be.
A moving company will consider the distance between two locations and the fuel cost along with the time taken to cover the distance.
You make hire a mover in Montana and the services might include packing but remember that the cost for packing material brought in by the moving company would be added to the total moving cost.
On the day of moving, you might ask the company for an additional service, which may be anything from disassembling and reassembling furniture, moving specialty items, and moving supplies provided by movers. However, you need to remember that the additional expenses would reflect in the total moving cost.
Moving to a smaller house in Montana, you may require a storage facility to stock your household belongings for a specific period. Hire a storage unit from the moving company in Montana. However, the rent would be added to the total moving cost.
Your moving cost will be greatly influenced by the moving date. You need to know that winters are cheaper to move while summers are expensive. This is because most people prefer moving on sunny, bright days. When you need to cut down the moving cost, plan the relocation in the winter season.
You can opt for additional insurance against the household stuff that you move. This is a good decision but it will add up to the total moving cost.
In Montana, a move within the state or less than 100 miles is addressed as a local move. And, movers in Montana calculate the local moving differently from interstate or long-distance moving, on an hourly basis. This means, when you move within Montana, you will be billed based on how many workers are required to complete the task at a specific time.
In Montana, a mover normally charges $50-$75 per mover per hour. To move a 1-bedroom home, you may require a minimum of 2 laborers to work for 2 hours in addition to the 1 hour drive time. This means you would require paying 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 Montana, 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|

While you’ve to move interstate or cross-country from Montana, you can hire a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company. But when you’ve to move locally, maybe within a 100-mile radius, you’ve got many cheaper options.
Different ways to move somewhere inside Montana
While you have to move the home locally, a full-service moving company is a safe bet for its comfort. A full-service mover in Montana will pack your belongings, load the truck, unload it, and unpack the belongings, all for a cost. On a moving day, it relieves you from all worries and you can sit back to observe them doing the work.
However, a full-service moving company is slightly expensive for certain people, and instead they can hire a partial moving service company that helps 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 it with your household belongings to drive to the new home. The truck rental is the only cost that you need to spend here, which may come between $30 and $47 per day plus the fuel cost.
In Montana, portable moving containers are available for rent. You can hire one and fill in your belongings into it at your convenience. The company will deliver the container to your new address in a few days. A portable container usually costs about $400 to $500 in Montana to move your belongings within 50 miles.
You can hire a utility trailer and fill your stuff into it. Tow it behind your vehicle and drive to the new home. However, your vehicle must have a trailer hitch for that and the stuff should also be limited.
When the volume of your belongings is too limited, squeeze them into the car with open seats, floors, and a trunk and drive to the new home. You can also take the help of a friend and his car when you feel the stuff is beyond what the car can store.
You know that to move locally in Montana, you’ve got many options but moving from or to another state is a little complicated.
When moving long-distance in Montana, the options would greatly be based upon how far you’re moving and how many household items you have.
You need to understand that the DIY option doesn’t always work or is not the best option for long-distance moving. 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 think about driving a truck if you’re just moving a couple of hundred miles or just one state over, but moving cross country is highly challenging and you’ve got two options to consider:
Book a full-service moving company in Montana and entrust the charge to move your home. From packing to unpacking, assembling and disassembling your furniture to driving the truck and loading and unloading all the items, the company will handle everything with ease. Despite being a little costlier, a professional mover makes long-distance moves smooth and hassle-free.
There are a few people who want the moving process to be professional but feel a full-service moving company's cost is beyond their budget. For them, a partial moving service company is the best option.
You can even consider hiring a portable container to move long distance.

You need to be cautious as a mover you hire will be handling your precious and special items at home.

However, in case you’re hiring a mover in Montana outside us, you need to confirm:
When you are doubtful about the weight, you can demand reweighing before it is unloaded. Legally, it cannot be extra charged but the final cost would be based on the reweighed weight. You can also demand to observe the reweigh in writing.
There is no rule related to tipping in Montana, and also there’s no minimum amount you can tip to workers. However, you can offer a tip for the satisfying services received. A mover when hired is expected to safely deliver your household stuff at the new home, and like any service provider; the workers expect recognition for a job well done. Offer beverages (water, sports drink, soda) and food (breakfast rolls, sandwiches, pizza, cookies), which will be a good gesture.
Speaking about the climate, summer is the best time to relocate the home as it would be sunny and days would be longer. Also, with no fog and snow, the roads would be clear. However, summer is expensive as most people prefer moving during that time of the year. You may not get a good deal and would require accepting what a mover is offering. Instead, winter is a dull period for the moving industry and companies would offer good and alluring offers. If moving affordably is your goal, plan your move in winter when you can negotiate better.
Similarly, weekdays are cheaper and weekends are costlier to move. Also, moving on public holidays is expensive.
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, you should not make an advance payment in cash before the household items reach the new home. A genuine moving company in Montana 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.
