How Much Do Hourly Movers Cost?

How much hourly movers’ cost is the ultimate question customers ask themselves when trying to move. Everyone could use an extra set of hands when moving, but customers don’t want to break their budget either. 

Moving Help® has many Service Providers who set their own prices, so you can find movers that’ll also fit your budget. 

How Much Do Moving Help’s Movers Cost?

The average cost for two helpers for one hour across the United States and Canada is about $76. That means the most common service — two helpers for two hours for a load or unload service — will cost you on average about $152. 

Of course, some areas will cost more than $152 per two hours for two helpers, and some areas will cost less than $152 per two hours for two helpers when you’re booking movers. 

What Are the Benefits of Hiring More Helpers for Fewer Hours?

The more movers a customer has the quicker movers can move items in and out of a customer’s home. It’ll be easier for hourly movers to move heavier objects because they have more movers with them for a customer’s move. Yes, customers will have to pay more for more movers, but customers will spend fewer hours getting their move done because they have more hands to help them. 

What Are the Benefits of Hiring Less Helpers for More Hours?

A customer will save money by not having to pay for more movers. The move itself might take longer, but with hourly movers, the move will be efficient. If a customer’s movers aren’t done, and they need more time to finish the work, and you want them to finish the work, then a customer can add more time.

Customers can go to their MovingHelp.com account, add more hours online, pay it, and then they’ll receive an email. After the move is complete, they’ll still give the hourly movers the same Payment Code the customers receive originally. 

What Factors Influence the Price of Hourly Movers?

Several factors can determine the price of what hourly movers set their prices on the Moving Help Marketplace as. Moving Help movers could set their prices for the following factors: 

  • Demand 
  • Summer months (peak moving season) 
  • Holidays 
  • Weekends vs. Weekdays 
  • Same-day booking 
  • Booking far in advance 
  • Location 
  • Movers offering discounts on certain days 
  • Movers having premiums on certain days 
  • Customer needs
    • It’ll cost more if customers need help packing and loading or unloading vs. customers just needing help loading or unloading. 

When booking hourly movers, you’ll want to think about some of these factors.
