Residential Removals FAQs

How much do local movers usually cost?

Average Cost of Movers Per Hour On average in Dundee, typically charge between £30 to £60 per mover, per hour for local moves. So, a two-person team working for four hours will cost a minimum of £240 to £400 just for labour. But keep in mind that other expenses will be incurred as well, like transportation fees, materials and fuel.

How much will it cost me to relocate?

If hiring professional movers for a relocation to or from Dundee, you can expect to pay at least £700. As mentioned above, the average cost of a local household move is £1,250, and the average cost of a long distance move is £4,890.

What is the cheapest way to move short distance?

The cheapest way to move a short distance to or from Dundee is to move yourself, also known as a DIY move. Use your own car or borrow one from someone, and ask friends and family to help. A step up in the cost is to DIY but to rent a truck, trailer or cargo van.

Do you need to be present for movers?

While it’s important that you let the movers do their job, it doesn’t mean that you leave the site and wait for them in your new home. They might have other questions or concerns requiring your assistance. Someone has to be there to resolve any issue.

Do you tip two guys and a van?

Tips: You aren’t required to tip, and the movers won’t ask for one. But it is generally considered customary to tip movers £4-5 per person for each hour of work of the move, especially for a job well done.

Are removals companies negotiable?

Once you have multiple estimates, you can use those to negotiate with the mover you like best, by letting them know the lowest bid you received and asking if they can beat it. Moving companies may charge fees for a variety of often-unexpected things.

Why is relocation so expensive?

Moving companies have to pay more money to hire movers: to recruit, build, train, keep the best moving crews and compete for labour. Remember, movers have to pack, load, unload, climb flights of stairs, lift heavy objects, and do it all day, every day. So this is one area that makes a lot of sense.

What is considered a local move?

A local move is typically one that occurs when moving between two locations within 50 miles or less, while an intrastate move occurs over a longer distance in the same state. This is of course in comparison to an interstate move which takes place when moving across state lines.

How do you move heavy commercial equipment?

If you’re moving heavy equipment by hand, an overhead crane is the best choice only. Secondly you may choose a forklift to lift the machinery but given that most machines are top heavy this is not the first choice. A half-ton chain hoist is a great tool to have around when moving heavy equipment by hand.
