How to Choose the Best Local Mover in Rye

You should consider several important factors when choosing a mover. Here are some things to keep in mind when hiring movers in Rye.

Determine Your Budget

The average hourly rate for a local mover in Rye is $112. Based on this, a standard two-bedroom move costs approximately $4,518 in total. Your actual costs will vary depending on any additional tasks you need your movers to handle, move distance, the season, and your home size.

You should get quotes from at least three reputable movers in your area. Ask for written estimates that outline the total cost and the hourly rate or flat fee. Comparing the estimate provided by your to the final cost after your move helps ensure fair pricing.

Read Customer Reviews

Moving companies need good customer reviews. Reading customer reviews on forums such as social media, the Better Business Bureau, Google Reviews, Trustpilot, and Yelp will show you which movers have positive customer experiences. We suggest thoroughly researching customer reviews before selecting a moving company.

Ensure Proper Licensing

Moving companies in Rye must follow different licensing requirements depending on their service area. If you're only moving within New York, make sure your moving company holds a New York Department of Transportation license.

If you're moving across state lines, the regulations are different. Interstate moving companies must be licensed with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and must carry active United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and Motor Carrier (MC) numbers. You can use these numbers to look up a mover’s registration status and complaint history on the FMCSA’s mover registration search tool.

Services

Ask if your chosen mover can provide the services that align with your expectations when requesting quotes. Take a full inventory of your home before requesting quotes and write down any basic or add-on services you may need. Notify the moving company about any special needs to evaluate if the company is a fit.

Types of Moving Services

A full-service mover includes these services for standard moves:

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

Tell your moving company about the additional services you need while going through the quote process. Services that can lead to higher pricing are:

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

Tips To Consider When Moving in Rye, NY

Consider the following before moving to, from, or within Rye.

Schedule an Early Move

Rye usually gets hectic during rush hour. Maneuvering through it can be more difficult in a moving truck compared to a standard personal-use car. Movers caught in traffic may lead to delays and a higher cost since local moving companies charge hourly. We advise scheduling before morning rush hour, which ensures the movers beat the traffic and wrap up the move before evening.

Avoid Busy Season

The busiest time for movers—between May and September—coincides with Rye's hot weather. This can adversely affect your move if you begin looking too late and can't find an available moving company. Plan ahead and schedule your desired mover 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 movers approach same-day packing requests similarly. Movers will not move loose items that haven’t been packed when your move is scheduled to start in many cases. We recommend you begin packing around six weeks before your move to avoid 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 Rye, NY

Movers in Rye cost $2,736 on average for moves less than 250 miles. It can cost up to $8,368 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.
