Find Cheap Movers in Kansas City
Get free quotes & compare rates from the best cheap movers in the Kansas City metro
Movers are expensive. If you hire them for your Kansas City move, you could end up shelling out anywhere between $1,000 and $10,000+.
You’re here because you want to hire a KC moving company without breaking the bank.
When looking for affordable movers, it’s important to properly vet them. Just because they’re inexpensive doesn’t mean that you’ll be happy with their services. In fact, if they’re super cheap, you’re more likely to get burned.
It is possible; however, to find a cheap and reliable moving company. That is if you play your cards right.
Here’s how to find the best cheap movers in Kansas City (spoiler alert – it’s by filling out our form).
Here’s how it works:
If you’re going the cheap route, it’s especially important to do your research that the price of your Kansas City moving company is not at the expense of quality of service.
The early you start looking for a moving company to hire, the more flexibility you will have. If you’re in a pinch, movers may try to overcharge you. If you’ve got time and options, then they’ll be more competitive on their pricing.
The more companies you contact, the more likely you are to find a good company at a good rate.
Ask your movers about their pricing and services. Make sure they don’t have any hidden fees or moving minimums. Also make sure they have the right licensing and insurance.
With our rate estimate tool, you can send your moving details to several of the best cheap Kansas City movers with just a couple clicks.
We’ve already taken care of hand-selecting the best pros for your job, so you don’t have to.
The cheapest mover will not always be your best option. If they are quoting you way cheaper than other companies, that is a big red flag. If you pay a bit more for a highly accredited company, you could end up saving more money in the long run.
Hiring movers is never cheap – even if you find a great company and take all of the necessary steps to reduce your bill. Expect to pay a minimum of $300 for an in-town move and $1,000 for a long distance move. If you don’t have the money, consider a DIY move.
If you wait until the last minute, you moving options will be limited. Companies may also charge you more since they know that you’re in a pinch. It’s best to start researching KC moving companies well in advance of your move.
Now that we’ve covered how to find the right company at the right price, here’s what you can do to make your moving bill even cheaper.
Short distance movers bill by the hour, and long distance movers bill by weight.
Either way, the less stuff you have, the cheaper your moving bill will be.
If you have some stuff that you haven’t used in awhile and don’t see yourself needing anytime soon, consider dumping, donating, or selling it.
Movers will certainly do that packing for you, but not without its price. Since packing boxes is relatively easy to do yourself, we definitely suggest you do it yourself to save some money.
If you have large items already disassembled when the movers show up, their job will go much faster (and be cheaper). When the movers are unloading, let them know that you’ll do the reassembly too.
Some things are very difficult to move since they are overly fragile or don’t stack well onto a truck. 2 good examples would be TV’s and potted plants. These types of things take a long time to protect and move, thus adding to your bill. If you have space in your car for some of this stuff, consider putting it in there instead.
Kids & pets will slow your movers down and create a safety hazard. You could book a sitter for them, but since you’re on a budget, consider checking with your friends to see if they can watch them on move-out day.
Communication is key. Let your movers know your budget prior to the move. They will either say “nope, we can’t do it for that”, or “ok we’ll make sure we keep your bill in that range”.
If they know your budget, they can prioritize speed over being super careful. For example, if some of your stuff isn’t that valuable, let them know that they don’t need to wrap it. They always err on the side of caution, but if you tell them that, they’ll be happy to skip wrapping it.
