Also, many moving companies don’t include additional costs for packing.
If you want to pack your own belongings and box up every room, it will obviously ensure your moving bill is considerably lower than having professional lovers do it for you. But the reality is final DIY packing costs are often similar to the cost of moving! A house with 4 bedrooms can take in excess of 12 hours to move from one location to another. In this example, your average moving costs will be around $1,800 to $2,500 with no packing included!
