Here’s some steps on finding the right cheap mover for your next move.

1. Start searching for a cheap movers ASAP.
Get in touch with a cheap Qualified mover, that offers you service with responsible pricing. In these days can you imagine finding a great moving company at reasonable prices. Well, that’s perfectly understandable and high demand that brings forward urgency in finding a cheap state to state mover before they get booked out. As soon as you know that you’re going to be moving it’s very crucial to start looking for a cheap Mover and lock down the date. Especially for your cross-country move it’s very important to lock down a date as quickly as possible they could be booked out two months in advance.
it’s best to get an on-site estimate for your local or your long-distance Moving needs.

2. Reliable recommendationsOne of the main issues when trying to find the best moving company in Arizona is a reliable and good source. There’re many companies out there that pay someone or a company to write reviews, which makes it hard for the consumer to know what’s true and not true. I believe a reliable source is the better business bureau and Angie’s list. Google is a pretty source for the most part and Yelp doesn’t always show all reviews. Here’s a great link for reviews
The BBB :
To be honest the Best source is friends and Family that have used or experiences with the moving company in Phoenix area.

3. Request an on-site Estimate:
The best thing to do is to call about 3 Reputable moving companies in Phoenix, AZ and compare apples to apples.
Just keep in mind a lot of moving companies that have salesman and the representative has never moved furniture before.
So if the estimate isn’t binding the price can change when the movers arrive.

4. Knowing the Average Moving Cost:

Local moving company usually charge by the hour. The average hourly rate is between $95 to $125 per hour for 2-men and a truck.
Beware of low-ball moving companies there rates are usually really low, but they will charge for a lot of extras such as stairs, elevator, shrink wraps, tape ,weekends and etc..
Here a breakdown for a 2 men crew the average cost:
Studio apartment and single pieces $285 to $375
1-bedroom Apartment $285 to $500
My recommendations for 2-bedroom apartment and house Moves:
3-men crew ranging from $135 to $155 per hour
2- bedroom apartment $435 to $580
2-bedroom house $580-$1,085
3-bedroom house $870 – $1,350
These prices don’t include extra hours for stairs, elevator, long walk, tight conditions , disassembling and reassembling.
These hours are based on a simple and 10mile radius to and from locations.
There’s many companies that will charge extra for stairs, elevator ,long walks ,disassembling and reassembling services that should be included in your hourly rate.

It’s important when finding a cheap moving company in Phoenix to do your homework and check their ratings with the Better Business Bureau.
