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 New Jersey) 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|
When you create the moving cost estimate to Rhode Island, consider the following factors:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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|

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
However, in case you’re hiring a mover in Rhode Island outside us, you need to confirm:
The moving company in Rhode Island you hire needs to be properly licensed and insured. As per the US federal law, all interstate movers must register with the Federal Government and you can confirm this in the U.S. DOT system.
Also, verify the track record of the mover as a few rogue movers frequently change names to escape from authorities. Check the company’s profile on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), whether it is accredited by the BBB.
When you hire a mover in our Moving Directory, you can be confident about its quality of services as we hold detailed scrutiny of the background of every mover before adding it.
When you approach a moving company in Rhode Island, you need to consider:
There should be a minimum 6-week window between approaching the moving company and the date of moving. You will be connecting with at least 4 movers in Rhode Island and each company will send a representative to your home to take the stock of the entire belongings before offering the final quote. After this, multiple levels of negotiation take place which will consume two weeks or more. Hence, it’s always good to maintain a 6-week gap.
Usually, people hire a storage unit to stock their belongings when there is a shortage of space at the new home. When you rent a storage unit from the moving company, it does not guarantee any price cut but that depends upon your skill to negotiate. As there’s no fixed cost for a storage unit, it can be either cheaper or costlier. However, when you hire a storage facility from the moving company you chose to relocate, you save a lot of time.
You may be properly organized but cannot escape from the chaos on the moving day. No matter how much you organize, the moving day will be chaotic. This is the only day when both move-out and move-in, all within 24 hours. It is complex and stressful. However, you can minimize the pressure by proper planning.
