Furnishing and decorating your home is a fun, exciting experience as you’re able to add your own personality to the space you’re living in and make it yours. However, when it comes time to move all those amazing finds to a new home, it can be a hassle, especially when it involves large pieces of furniture like couches, beds, pianos, kitchen tables, and TVs. 

The questions begin to ring in your head, “how am I going to move all this stuff?”, “Do I really need all this stuff?”, “How do I box up precious art and electronics?” This is all completely normal and understandable! 

The best thing you can do is consolidate all your furniture, see what you want to keep and what can be sold or donated. You can save yourself time by seeing what pieces will fit in your new home by comparing the size and layout of the new home to the size of your current home to ensure that all the pieces of furniture you are moving fit perfectly.  

This process may be daunting but a little research can make the operation much easier. The first thing to know is the average cost of moving furniture across the United States using professional movers for an interstate move is $4,890. This can get expensive during different times of the year, so keep that in mind. For example, summer is the most expensive time to hire movers. 

The main things you need to know about moving your things are: item size, weight, and the distance of your shipment. This will help you get a more accurate idea of what it will cost. Next you need to decide what works best for you based on your needs: full-service moving company, moving container, freight trailer, or DIY truck rental? With so many choices and variables, the decision is overwhelming.

Calling movers and comparing costs on your own is a large, time-consuming task. Comparing quotes is the best way for you to know what the cost is going to be. The information you’ll need when contacting movers is, the amount of things you need moved, addresses of both pick up and drop off, date of pick up, how many boxes you will need, types of packaging material as well as time frame of when you want to receive your items. There are companies that will pack everything for you and there are others that will only pack the big things like mattresses and couches. With this information, companies can give you an accurate quote and then you can decide what is best for you and your budget.
