How to choose movers in San Diego

San Diego skyline

Summer is a popular time to move since many children are on vacation from school. Students who attend the many colleges and universities in San Diego usually relocate during the summer as well. Consequently, summer moving prices can be twice as high as September through April, and movers will be more pressed for time.

The average price to hire local movers for 100 miles or fewer in San Diego ranges from $80 to $100 per hour for two movers and a truck. A two-bedroom apartment takes about five to seven hours, while a four-bedroom house can take 10 hours or more. California Moving and Storage Association provides unbiased information for people moving household goods within the state.

Interstate or long-distance movers usually charge by load and should be insured and registered with the Department of Transportation. Customers can research state-to-state and cross-country movers with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Costs average $2,000 to $5,000 per load.

Factors to consider when getting a quote and hiring a moving company:

  • Will you pack items yourself or hire movers to pack them?
  • Distance of move
  • Dates and speed of delivery
  • How many rooms are in your home?
  • What floor do you live on?
  • Do you need optional add-on insurance that covers the full value of items?
  • Do you own any oversized or especially fragile or heavy items?

Ask questions to avoid surprises on your bill, like extra charges for additional movers. Downtown San Diego residents in high-rise buildings should inquire about “stair fees.”

Overall, the population of San Diego County is booming. With new housing developments, suburbs like Carlsbad, San Marcos and Chula Vista are experiencing tremendous growth. Rising rents and home prices also contribute to the relocation of San Diegans throughout the county, as does the large military presence. About one-third of people living in San Diego are from other parts of California, and many move to the city from other countries.
