How to Choose the Best Local Mover in West Valley City

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

Determine Your Budget

The average cost of a local move in West Valley City is $76 per hour. The overall cost amounts to $4,210 for a two-bedroom move. Factors that contribute to your actual cost include any additional tasks you need done, the season, move distance, and your home size.

We suggest obtaining quotes from three or more reputable movers in your area. Always get written estimates, which should break down your total cost and the flat fee or hourly rate. Comparing the estimate provided by your to the final cost after your move helps ensure fair pricing is maintained.

Read Customer Reviews

Good customer feedback is important for all moving companies. You can find moving companies with positive customer experiences by reading reviews on platforms like Trustpilot, the Better Business Bureau, Yelp, Google Reviews, and social media.

Ensure Proper Licensing

Moving companies in West Valley City must follow different licensing requirements depending on their service area. If you're only moving within Utah, your mover doesn't need a state license to operate in Utah.

The requirements change if you're moving to or from another state. In this case, choose a mover licensed with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The team should also carry active United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and Motor Carrier (MC) numbers. You can see a company's registration status on the FMCSA’s mover registration search tool.

Services

Assess whether your chosen mover can provide the specific services you need when requesting quotes. Take a full inventory of your home before getting quotes and write down any basic or add-on services you might require. Discuss any special conditions or needs with your moving company representative in order to assess whether the company can fulfill your particular needs.

Types of Moving Services

A full-service mover will include the following services for standard moves:

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

When requesting a quote from your moving company, communicate any services you need. The following 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 West Valley City, UT

Consider the following before moving to, from, or within West Valley City.

Schedule an Early Move

West Valley City usually gets hectic during rush hour. Navigating it can be more challenging in a moving truck compared to a standard personal-use car. Movers caught in traffic may result in delays and a higher cost since local movers charge by the hour. Try to schedule your move either several hours before or after the morning rush hour to avoid this issue.

Avoid Busy Season

The peak moving season—between May and September—coincides with West Valley City's hot weather. This can negatively impact your move if you begin looking too late and can't find an available moving company. Plan ahead and secure your preferred moving company at least eight weeks in advance. You should also be prepared for the potential challenges the summer weather may pose to your movers during a summer move.

Pack in Advance

Most movers won't move items that haven't been packed by the scheduled moving time. Begin packing around six weeks before your move to avoid rushing at the last minute. You can pack a couple boxes each day to make the process more manageable.

How Much do Movers Cost in West Valley City, UT

Movers in West Valley City cost $2,630 on average for moves less than 250 miles. It can cost up to $7,068 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.
