How to Estimate Your Cost of Moving [Infographic]

By On

Estimating moving costs is zero fun. You’d think that the migration of people for eons would have simplified the process by now. But no. Each time we move, we have to plunge back into the fog of figuring out moving cost questions:

  • How much it costs to rent a Uhaul?
  • How much do moving companies cost?
  • How much does it cost to hire a professional packer?

Despite our best efforts and exhaustive research, it seems, we struggle each time to nail down the actual costs of these services.

How to Estimate Moving Costs

The cost of moving is not only financial. Moving is also highly stressful and each aspect of the move carries its own unique pain costs. While we seek to minimize the financial costs of moving, we can’t forget to consider our own personal and psychological costs as well. Time, moving management, effort, health – all these should factor into how you estimate moving costs.

Instead of searching the deep catacombs of the internet for moving costs with pinpoint accuracy, we built a graphic to give you moving cost estimates at a glance. We’ve also included common personal pain point that go with each type of move. This is the stuff that hurts, even when it doesn’t hit you squarely in the wallet.
