How to Choose the Best Local Mover in Wichita

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

Determine Your Budget

The average cost of a local move in Wichita is $62 per hour. The overall cost amounts to $4,105 for a two-bedroom move. Your actual cost will depend on any additional tasks you need your movers to handle, move distance, your home size, and the season.

We recommend obtaining quotes from three or more reputable movers in your area. Always get written estimates, which should detail your total cost and 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 positive customer reviews. Take the time to read customer reviews on websites such as social media, Yelp, Trustpilot, Google Reviews, and the Better Business Bureau to find movers that prioritize positive customer experiences.

Ensure Proper Licensing

Moving companies in Wichita must follow different licensing requirements depending on their service area. If you are only moving within Kansas, your mover must have an active motor carrier identification number, which the Kansas Corporation Commission regulates.

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 carry 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

Assessing whether the mover offers the services you need is crucial during the quote process. Complete an extensive inventory of your home before requesting quotes and write down any essential or additional services you might require. Additionally, notify your moving company representative about any extra services you may need to evaluate the company's ability to provide suitable service.

Types of Moving Services

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

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

Inform your moving company about the special services you require while going through 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 Wichita, KS

Here are some additional tips to keep in mind when moving in Wichita.

Schedule an Early Move

Wichita traffic during the morning and evening rush hours is notoriously hectic. Navigating gridlock in a moving truck is even more difficult than with a standard personal-use vehicle. Movers stuck in traffic during your local move typically leads to higher costs since they’ll still be on the clock while in their trucks. You can avoid this by booking movers several hours before or after morning rush hour.

Avoid Busy Season

The peak moving season—between May and September—coincides with Wichita's hottest time of year. This can adversely affect your move if you begin looking too late and can't find an available moving company. If you book far enough in advance, you should be able to schedule with the mover you want regardless of the season. However, the movers may be hindered by the heat.

Pack in Advance

You should start packing about six weeks before your move. Allocate some packing time each day to prevent needing to pack at the last minute. Most moving companies won't move items that haven't been packed by the scheduled moving time.

How Much do Movers Cost in Wichita, KS

Movers in Wichita cost $2,594 on average for moves less than 250 miles. It can cost up to $6,623 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.
