How to Choose the Best Local Mover in East Los Angeles

A few factors you should consider when looking for a moving company include licensing, customer reviews, cost, and services offered.

Determine Your Budget

According to our research, the average mover in East Los Angeles charges $50 per hour. The typical cost overall is $4,300 for two-bedroom homes. Your actual costs will vary depending on any additional tasks you need your movers to handle, the season, move distance, and your home size.

We recommend obtaining quotes from three or more reputable movers in your area. Remember to request written estimates. These should detail the total cost, including the hourly rate or flat fee. Comparing the estimate provided by your to the final cost after the move helps ensure fair pricing.

Read Customer Reviews

Moving companies need solid customer feedback. Check sites like Google Reviews, social media, Trustpilot, the Better Business Bureau, and Yelp to gain insights into the typical customer experience with that moving company.

Ensure Proper Licensing

Moving companies in East Los Angeles must follow different licensing requirements depending on their service area. If you're only moving intrastate, choose a company that carries a California Bureau of Household Goods and Services license. You can check a company's state license using the Transportation Carriers Lookup tool.

The requirements differ if you're moving to or from another state. In this case, choose a company licensed with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The team should also carry active United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and Motor Carrier (MC) numbers. You can see a company's registration status on the FMCSA’s mover registration search tool.

Services

Assessing whether the mover offers the services you need is crucial during the quote process. Get ready for the quote process by taking a thorough inventory of your possessions and writing down any services you might require. Share any special conditions or needs with your moving company representative in order to evaluate if the company can accommodate your particular needs.

Types of Moving Services

A full-service mover will include the following services for basic moves:

  • Basic wrapping materials for furniture protection
  • Loading and unloading
  • Released liability coverage for loss or damage

Tell your moving company about any special services you require during the quote process. Services that lead to increased pricing include the following:

  • Crating for art or antiques
  • Extra flights of stairs
  • Long carries
  • Packing
  • Moving a piano
  • Storage
  • Unpacking
  • Vehicle shipping

Tips To Consider When Moving in East Los Angeles, CA

Here are a few additional tips to consider for your East Los Angeles move.

Schedule an Early Move

East Los Angeles usually gets hectic during rush hour. Maneuvering through it can be more challenging in a moving truck compared to a personal-use car. Movers caught in traffic may result in delays and a higher cost since local movers charge hourly. Planning your move for the early morning ensures that your movers get there before rush hour and make the trip to your new home in the afternoon when traffic is limited.

Avoid Busy Season

May to September marks the peak moving season and East Los Angeles' hottest time of the year. Moving at this time can slow or worsen your move, particularly if you begin your search for a moving company too close to your move. The increased demand could lead to limited availability with your desired mover. Plan ahead and secure your desired moving company at least eight weeks in advance. You should also be prepared for the potential difficulties the hot summer weather may pose to your movers during a summer move.

Pack in Advance

Most moving companies won't move items that haven't been packed when your move starts. We suggest you begin packing around six weeks before your move to avoid rushing to pack on your moving day. Spending time packing a couple boxes each day can make the process less stressful.

How Much do Movers Cost in East Los Angeles, CA

Movers in East Los Angeles cost $2,661 on average for moves less than 250 miles. It can cost up to $7,446 to move a larger 4 bedroom house the same distance. See the chart below for more moving estimates, and contact a moving company for a more accurate quote specific to your situation.
