How to Choose the Best Local Mover in Fort Lauderdale

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

Determine Your Budget

Local movers in Fort Lauderdale charge an average hourly rate of $68. A two-bedroom move in the area costs approximately $4,246 in total. Your move distance, move date, home size, and any additional tasks you need the movers to do will contribute to your actual cost.

We advise getting quotes from at least three reputable movers in your area. Always get written estimates, which should detail your total cost and the flat fee or hourly rate. Hold onto your moving company's estimate until your move is finished.

Read Customer Reviews

Customer feedback plays a crucial role for moving companies. You can find movers that provide good customer service by reading reviews on platforms like Google Reviews, the Better Business Bureau, social media, Yelp, and Trustpilot.

Ensure Proper Licensing

Moving companies in Fort Lauderdale must follow different licensing requirements depending on their service area. If you are only moving intrastate, your moving company must be registered with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS). You can check for an active business license using its License Lookup tool.

If you're moving interstate, 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 check a mover’s registration status and complaint history.

Services

Ask if the mover you chose can provide the services that meet your expectations when requesting quotes. Conduct a thorough inventory of your home before requesting quotes and write down any basic or add-on services you might require. Share any special conditions or needs with your moving company representative to assess whether the company is able to meet your particular needs.

Types of Moving Services

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

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

Ensure that your moving company is aware of any special services you require in the quote process. Increased pricing may apply for these services:

  • Crating for art or antiques
  • Extra flights of stairs
  • Long carries
  • Packing
  • Piano moving
  • Storage
  • Unpacking
  • Vehicle shipping

Tips To Consider When Moving in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Here are a few additional tips to consider for your Fort Lauderdale move.

Schedule an Early Move

Fort Lauderdale sees its fair share of traffic, and navigating this can be more difficult in a moving truck. Being stuck in traffic can lead to delays and impact your budget, as local movers charge by the hour. Arranging 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 lighter.

Avoid Busy Season

May to September marks the peak moving season and Fort Lauderdale's hottest time of the year. Moving at this time can slow or worsen your move, particularly if you start searching for a moving company too close to your move. The high demand could make it harder to secure your desired mover. Plan ahead and secure your preferred mover at least eight weeks in advance. You should also be prepared for the potential difficulties the summer weather may pose to your movers during a summer move.

Pack in Advance

Most movers won't transport items that aren't packed when your move starts. Begin packing approximately six weeks before your move to avoid rushing at the last minute. You can pack a few boxes each day to make the process less stressful.

How Much do Movers Cost in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Movers in Fort Lauderdale cost $2,642 on average for moves less than 250 miles. It can cost up to $7,217 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.
