You will hire a mover in Rhode Island while moving locally or moving here from a neighboring state (Massachusetts, Connecticut). However, while moving to Rhode Island from a faraway state (Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Minnesota, or Montana); your choice would be a moving company from your location. As our network is wide and vast with top-rated movers from every state in the US, hiring a mover to Rhode Island from your location will be much easier. The process to hire one is just the same as we talked about in Rhode Island.

There’s no ‘one cost' for moving to Rhode Island as the long–distance moving cost, like anywhere in the US, is determined by multiple factors.

A moving company in Rhode Island will consider the distance, the volume of household items you move, and the mode of transport you choose to decide on the final moving cost. Also, the mover will have specific factors that also need to be considered.

Maybe Rhode Island is the smallest state in the US spread just over 1,214 square miles but where in the state you are moving to is also a big factor in deciding moving cost. You may be moving to Rhode Island from a neighboring state (Connecticut, Massachusetts, or Rhode Island) or a faraway state (Idaho, Oklahoma, Wyoming, 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 Rhode Island

From State Studio/1 bedroom 2-3 bedroom 4+ bedroom
Kansas $1,550-$2,260 $2,180-$3,090 $2,920-$4,070
Maine $640-$1,090 $1,170-$1,810 $1,820-$2,670
Alabama $1,220-$1,840 $1,820-$2,640 $2,520-$3,570
Texas $1,680-$2,430 $2,320-$3,280 $3,070-$4,270
Washington $2,540-$3,540 $3,270-$4,490 $4,110-$5,590

When you create the moving cost estimate to Rhode Island, consider the following factors:

  • Size of the move:

    The cost of moving is directly connected with the total volume of household belongings you intend to move. The more items you have, the costlier the move will be.

  • Distance you need to move:

    For a moving company in Rhode Island, the distance between two locations (the current home and the home you are moving to) is crucial in deciding the total moving cost.

  • Packing services:

    Your moving company will deliver packing services but it will also charge for the packing materials brought in. This will be added to the total moving cost.

  • Moving add-ons:

    You may require different extra services on the moving day, such as moving heavy furniture, or a specific type of packing for a special item. Every add-on service has a price tag and the mover will add it to the total moving cost.

  • Storage:

    Based on the size of the new home, you may require additional storage and can ask the mover in Rhode Island if they can provide one. However, the rental will add up to the total moving cost.

  • Moving date:

    You may prefer moving in summer as the days are sunny and longer. However, as most people prefer the same season, moving costs will be higher in summer and you have little chance of getting a good deal or discount. Instead, while moving in winter, movers will show more willingness to offer discounts.

  • Insurance:

    You can take additional insurance against the belongings that you are moving. However, the mover will add the premium to the total cost.

In Rhode Island, any move within the state or 100-mile radius is a local move and it is calculated differently, on an hourly basis depending on how many laborers are required to complete the task.

While moving a 1-bedroom home, a minimum of 2 workers would require approximately 2 hours to complete the task in addition to the 1 hour drive time. This means, 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, a moving company in Rhode Island may bill you between $250 and $300, unless your move needs more hours or more people.

To get a clearer picture of moving cost within Rhode Island, 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
However, you need to remember that these are just approximate costs and the real costs may vary based on different factors.

While moving interstate or long-distance from Rhode Island, you may require a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company as you need to travel thousands of miles and move a huge volume of household stuff. However, to move locally to Rhode Island, you don’t need to depend upon a professional company but there are multiple options to save you hundreds of dollars.

Different ways to move somewhere inside Rhode Island

  • Hire a full-service or partial moving service company

    A full-service moving company in Rhode Island relieves you from all sorts of moving-related anguish and pain. You will have an experienced team of workers at your side who have the expertise in packing the items, loading and unloading the truck, and arranging them later inside the new home. Your relocation will get a professional touch and the process will be fast and effortless.

    However, a full-service mover can be costly and when you feel it is beyond your budget, try a partial moving service company which is less expensive but will help you load the truck and unload it.

  • Hire a truck and load it with your stuff

    You can even take a truck on rent and fill it with the household stuff to drive it to the new home. This way, you save hundreds of dollars. 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 in Rhode Island.

  • Hire a portable container

    Moving companies in Rhode Island offer portable moving containers that you fill as per convenience. Once you fill it, the mover will deliver the container to the new home in a few days. A portable container within 50 miles would cost you around $400 to $500.

  • Rent a tow behind cargo or utility trailer

    When you have a limited volume of belongings, you can 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.

  • Move the stuff in your car

    You can even move the home in your car. However, the volume of items needs to be extremely low and you should also be smart enough 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 Rhode Island, you will have multiple options, mostly DIY but moving interstate/ cross-country is a little different. Here, the distance you are moving and the stuff you move will greatly impact the moving options.

You can drive a truck filled with your belongings to the new home 100 miles away or a few hundreds more. But driving a truck through many states is highly expensive and not to mention the gas, drive time, and all the headaches that come with driving long distances.

And that leaves you two options to drive long-distance:

Full Service Moving:

When you have a full-service moving company at your side, the moving process becomes easy and stress-free. A full-service moving company in Rhode Island will handle special items and can also take up additional add-ons whenever required.

Partial Moving Services:

A partial moving service company is a good option when a full-service mover is more than what you can afford. The services are cheaper but help you load and unload the truck. You can also ask for packing services for an extra amount.

A moving company in Rhode Island you hire will be responsible for the moving of your home, including the special and precious items inside. And you don’t want someone inexperienced and illegitimate to take up the task. To ensure this, 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 that moving companies in our network are licensed and properly registered. MoverJunction is highly committed to delivering excellent moving services.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

The best way to ensure the utmost safety of your possessions while packing is to hire a professional moving company. Being experts in packing, they bring along with them 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.

Usually, people prefer moving in summer as the days are long and sunny and there won’t be any traffic issues on roads. However, you need to realize that summers are highly expensive as it is the moving season and you’ll hardly get discounts and offers. Instead, plan your move in winter when there is low business. This is the right time to negotiate for a good discount. Similarly, weekdays are cheaper and weekends are costlier to move. Also, moving on public holidays is expensive.

While hiring a mover in New York, you need to confirm all items you have at home as this will help you know if the company can move them without an issue. Usually, a moving representative will visit the home and take stock of every item to provide the final quote. And if there are some items that a mover will not take, he will inform you during the discussion. However, there are a few common items that no moving company will agree to move in their truck. They include fireworks, flammables, cleaning fluids, and matchboxes.

When you approach a moving company in Rhode Island, you need to consider:

  • Reputation
  • Insurance
  • The company’s policy
  • Experience
  • Cost of service
  • Cancellation policy
  • Referrals

As a rule of thumb, no genuine moving company will demand to be paid in advance for their services. This rule applies not just inside Rhode Island, but throughout the country.

It is however common for moving companies to demand a small fee to reserve your move. This fee should only be a small deposit (maybe 5% of your estimate) and should be applied towards your moving cost.

Whenever someone is demanding full advance payment or a high deposit, not just in Rhode Island but any state, you need to be cautious as it can be a rogue mover.

Hiring a moving truck is the cheapest way to move the home. However, renting a truck might only be a good option when you’re moving a few miles or anything under a 100 miles. For moves that are longer than that renting a truck and moving yourself might not be as cheap you may think. Consider the per mile charge of rental trucks, cost of gas, insurance, risk of traffic tickets and/or getting into an accident and damaging your belongings and/or getting hurt. In addition, for moving cross country there are several federal laws surrounding regular stops at weigh stations etc that might get you in trouble. For these reasons, renting a truck for long-distance moves might not be suitable.
