How to Choose the Best Local Mover in Stratford

Consider each moving company's services, licensing, customer reviews, and cost before choosing.

Determine Your Budget

The average hourly rate for a local mover in Stratford is $65. Based on this, a local two-bedroom move costs approximately $4,680 overall. Your move distance, home size, move date, and any additional services you need will determine your actual cost.

We recommend getting quotes from three or more reputable movers in your area. It's essential to get written estimates, which should break down your total cost and the flat fee or hourly rate. Keep the estimate from your mover and compare it to the final invoice to ensure fair pricing.

Read Customer Reviews

Good customer feedback is important for all moving companies. You can identify movers that provide good customer service by reading reviews on platforms like social media, the Better Business Bureau, Google Reviews, Yelp, and Trustpilot.

Ensure Proper Licensing

Moving companies in Stratford must follow different licensing requirements depending on their service area. If you are only moving intrastate, your mover must have a Household Goods Carrier Certificate or Motor Contract Carrier permit issued by the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT).

If you're moving to or from another state, the regulations are different. Choose a company licensed with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). It should also have active United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and Motor Carrier (MC) numbers, which you can use on the FMCSA’s mover registration search tool to look up a mover’s registration status and complaint history.

Services

Assess whether the mover can provide the services you need when requesting quotes. Take inventory of your belongings before seeking quotes and note down any basic or add-on services that you may need to ensure accurate pricing. Discuss any special conditions or needs with your moving company representative to evaluate whether the company can fulfill your specific requirements.

Types of Moving Services

For basic moves, full-service movers will include the following services in the standard price:

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

When seeking a quote from your moving company, mention any services you require. These services may lead to higher pricing for your move:

  • 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 Stratford, CT

Here are some extra tips to consider when moving in Stratford.

Schedule an Early Move

Stratford traffic during the morning and evening rush hours is notoriously congested. Navigating gridlock in a moving truck is even more challenging than with a standard personal-use vehicle. Movers stuck in traffic will typically lead to higher costs if they charge by the hour. We suggest planning before morning rush hour, which ensures the movers beat the traffic and complete the move before evening.

Avoid Busy Season

Moving season peaks between May and September. In Stratford, this time overlaps with hot summer weather, which can delay or worsen your moving experience. Plan ahead and book your chosen moving company at least eight weeks in advance. You should also be prepared for the potential challenges the hot summer weather may pose to your movers during a summer move.

Pack in Advance

Most movers only transport items that have been properly packed by the scheduled moving time, so you should finish your packing before they arrive. We suggest you begin packing around six weeks before your move to prevent stressing over last-minute packing when moving day comes. Packing some items each day can get it done without overwhelming you.

How Much do Movers Cost in Stratford, CT

Movers in Stratford cost $2,792 on average for moves less than 250 miles. It can cost up to $9,057 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.
