How to Choose the Best Local Mover in Woodbury

Some factors to consider when choosing a moving company include licensing, services offered, cost, and customer reviews.

Determine Your Budget

Based on our findings, the average cost of a local mover in Woodbury is $111 per hour. The overall cost adds up to $4,284 for a two-bedroom move. Your move date, home size, move distance, and any additional tasks you need the movers to do will contribute to your actual cost.

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

Read Customer Reviews

Moving companies depend on good customer reviews. Read customer reviews on websites like Yelp, Google Reviews, social media, Trustpilot, and the Better Business Bureau to identify movers with good customer service.

Ensure Proper Licensing

Moving companies in Woodbury must follow different licensing requirements depending on their service area. If you're making a local move that's purely within Minnesota, choose an intrastate mover licensed by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT).

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 check a mover’s registration status and complaint history.

Services

Ask if your chosen mover can provide the services that meet your expectations while obtaining quotes. Complete an extensive inventory of your home before getting quotes and note any basic or add-on services you may need. Inform your moving company representative about any special conditions or needs to evaluate if the company can provide satisfactory service.

Types of Moving Services

Full-service movers will include the following services in the base price for basic moves:

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

Ensure you inform your mover of any extra services you need during the quote process. Additional fees 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 Woodbury, MN

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

Schedule an Early Move

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

Avoid Busy Season

May to September marks the peak moving season and Woodbury's hottest time of the year. Moving during this time can slow or worsen your move, particularly if you begin your search for a mover too late. The high demand could make it more difficult to secure your desired mover. If you plan in advance, you should be able to schedule with your preferred mover regardless of the month. However, the movers may be hindered by the heat.

Pack in Advance

You should begin packing about six weeks before you move. Allocate some packing time each day to avoid needing to pack at the last minute. Most moving companies only move items that have been packed by the scheduled moving time, so you should finish your packing before their arrival.

How Much do Movers Cost in Woodbury, MN

Movers in Woodbury cost $2,655 on average for moves less than 250 miles. It can cost up to $7,379 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.

DistanceStudio-1 Bedroom2-3 Bedroom4+ Bedroom
Less than 250 miles$2,655$3,197$7,379
