The cost of movers in Minneapolis depends on a number of factors such as the size of your home, how far you are moving, and what additional services you need for your move.

What Type of Move Are You Making?


The first step to determining the cost of your move is to know what kind of move you're making.

Long Distance Moves

A long distance move is just what it sounds like — a move that covers a long distance. But what counts as a long distance? Typically, anything over 50 miles could be considered long distance, but each moving company may have different rules regarding distance, so confirm when you get your estimate.

Long distance moves are broken into two categories: intrastate and interstate.

Intrastate Moves

An intrastate move means that your move is within the boundaries of your current home state — in this case, Minnesota. For example, you could be moving from Minneapolis to Duluth.

Interstate Moves

An interstate move means that your move goes across state lines. For example, you could be moving from Minnesota to Wisconsin or from Illinois to Minnesota.

Local (Residential) Moves

A local home move is a move within your current city or area. Maybe you're moving from Minneapolis to Edina or from Uptown to Northeast Minneapolis, for example.

Rates for Local and Long Distance Moves

The type of move you are making will typically affect the way you are charged.

Long Distance Moving Rates

Long distance moves are typically charged according to the weight of your shipment, how much stuff you're moving, the number of miles being traveled, or some combination of those factors.

Local Moving Rates

A local move is usually charged at an hourly rate, and that rate can also be affected by the number of movers. The larger the home, the more movers will be needed, but that also means your move will be completed faster (so the overall rate shouldn't be dramatically different).

Additional Services and Fees That Can Affect the Cost of Your Move
