Along with that, both the MC and DOT numbers of the specific mover will also appear. Also, you will see the year of the establishment along with ‘working hours’ and ‘working days’.
You may choose a mover in West Virginia while moving locally or relocating here from the neighboring state (Virginia, Ohio, or Kentucky). But while moving here from the other side of the country (such as Idaho, Arizona, California, or Oregon), you may hire a mover from your location. As our network is robust with moving companies from every state in the US, finding a mover to West Virginia from your current location is easily possible.
You need to know that a long-distance moving cost is highly based on your current location, the distance from there to your new destination, the volume of household belongings you move, the season you move, and the type of moving service. Also, the mover you choose will have separate factors in deciding the cost.
You need to remember that while moving to West Virginia from Montana, New Mexico, Idaho, or Nevada, you will need to spend more than moving here from Maryland, Delaware, Illinois, or Pennsylvania.

While you prepare a moving cost estimate to West Virginia, consider the following factors:
The volume of household items you want to take to the new home is crucial in determining the moving cost. When you have more items, the moving cost will be higher.
While you approach a moving company in West Virginia for the final moving cost, it will consider the distance between two locations, the fuel charges, mode of transport, and a few other factors related to travel.
Your moving company may offer packing services and it will bring in packing materials on the moving day. However, the cost of the packing materials will be added to the total moving cost.
Whenever we request an additional service on the moving day, such as handling a special item or dissembling furniture and reassembling it, the mover will put a price tag, which will be included in the total moving cost.
When your new home in West Virginia is smaller in size, you may require additional space to store your belongings. You can rent a storage unit from the moving company. However, the rental will reflect on the total moving cost.
Winter is the right time to move affordably. Because most people prefer relocating in summer and moving companies in West Virginia will not be willing to cut down the quotes at this time of the year. In winter, the business will be low and a mover will offer you a discount to attract the business. This helps you move at a cheaper quote.
You can take additional insurance against the household stuff you move but it will get added up to the total moving cost.
Moving companies in West Virginia call a move within the boundaries of the state or less than a 100-mile radius as a local move. The moving cost is calculated differently, on an hourly basis, which means the hours took plus the number of workers you need to complete the task.
Normally, a minimum of 2 laborers and 2 hours in addition to the 1 hour drive time is required to relocate home, which means you will be paying for at least 3 hours for 2 movers. While a worker would cost approximately about $50-$75 per hour, you would need to spend between $250 and $300 for the moving process unless your move needs more hours or more people.
To get a clearer picture of moving cost within West Virginia, 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’re in West Virginia and want to move locally, you don’t need to rely upon professional movers, which are costlier. It is true that to move outside the state, especially long-distance or cross-country, you may need a moving company in West Virginia as you need to move thousands of miles with a huge volume of household items.
But the case is different in local moving. You’ve got many options available, both cheaper and convenient.
Different ways to move somewhere inside West Virginia
When you have a full-service moving company in West Virginia to take up the relocation process, the moving will become professional, easier, and stress-free. It will help you pack your belongings, load the truck, unload it, and unpack the household items at the new home within 100 miles.
A full-service mover is, however, a little costlier and when you feel it will not fit into your budget, you can hire a partial moving service company that will help you load the truck and unload it at the new home.
You can get a truck on rent in which the belongings can be filled. Drive the truck to the new home and it will cost extremely low as the only amount you need to spend is truck rental which may be $30 to $47 per day.
A portable moving container is beneficial as you can fill it at your convenience and hand it over to the moving company which will deliver it to your new address in a few days. A portable container within 50 miles would cost you around $400 to $500 in West Virginia.
When you have a very limited amount of household belongings, you can take a trailer on rent and fill them into it. The trailer can be towed behind your vehicle while driving to the new home.
You can even squeeze your belongings into your car and drive to the new home. But the volume of the stuff needs to be very less. And if the volume is a little more than what can be fit inside your vehicle, take the help of a friend and his car.
While you are moving locally within the boundaries of West Virginia, you’ve got many DIY options but they won’t work while moving interstate or long-distance. Your options to relocate the home long-distance or cross-country are greatly influenced by the distance you need to move and the volume of stuff you want to take.
You can drive a truck filled with your household belongings to the next state but crossing multiple states won’t work, considering the fuel cost, the drive time, and all the headaches that come with driving long distances.
This leaves you two options to consider:
When you need to give a professional touch to the entire moving process, a full-service moving company in West Virginia is a good option. From packing to unpacking, assembling and dissembling your furniture to driving the truck and loading and unloading all the items, the entire process becomes safe, easier, and faster. However, a drawback of a full-service moving company is the cost involved.
A full-service mover can be a little costlier to your moving budget. In that case, consider hiring a partial moving service company that is affordable and makes the moving process easy and stress-free.
You can also consider portable moving containers.

A moving company is expected to handle all your moving-related tasks, which include packing and loading special items and expensive ones. This requires extreme proficiency and when you hire a moving company in West Virginia, you need to ensure that it is properly licensed and verified. Only a licensed moving company can move your belongings interstate. Also, it must have a clean track record.
You need to verify the moving company’s profile on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), whether it is accredited by the BBB. There are a few fraud movers who frequently switch names to evade legal issues.
You are fortunate that all movers in our network are properly licensed and certified. When you hire a mover in West Virginia through us, you can be confident about the services.
And in case you’re hiring a mover in West Virginia outside us, you need to confirm:
The federal law does not permit you to move combustible or flammable materials. Hence, no mover in West Virginia will transport combustible materials including but not limited to, cleaning solvents, corrosives, fireworks or flares, gasoline, kerosene, motor fuel, lamp oil, oil-based paints, thinners, and varnishes, lighter fluid, fire extinguishers, nail polish remover, bleach, sterno, aerosol cans, propane containers and cylinders, matches, and old batteries.
Also, every moving company will have a policy related to the items that are moved. Please check with the company while discussing the moving quote.
When you approach a moving company in West Virginia, you need to consider:
You can always make a moving company tweak the moving quote received. Try to negotiate with the moving company in West Virginia by comparing multiple moving quotes you received from different movers. Ask them which service costs more and check how much difference will skipping a particular service make. Add or remove specific services and see the difference in cost. If nothing works, show them the better quotes you received from competing moving companies. As no one prefers to lose business, the mover will be ready to slash the cost.
Some other ways to bring down the moving cost include:
No genuine mover will demand the payment in advance. When someone demands cash payment even before it starts the process, you need to realize that it is a moving scam and should drop the plan. Always make the payment after your household items reach the home.
Make sure that animals are in their cat/dog carrier prior to the movers arriving at the home. Animals are curious and can get underfoot. If your dog isn’t good around strangers please have them tied up or in their carrier. The moving company cannot transport any live animal and no dogs, cats, fish, or reptiles are allowed in the truck.
If you are moving locally in West Virginia, 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.
