Study: Cost of Moving in America in 2021

Description: We looked at moving costs over the last year to determine how much states and cities spent on average on a typical move in the area.  

Sources and methodology:

All charts and tables are based on the analysis of local moving data in the U.S., booked through HireAHelper.com and our partners in 2020.

States with less than 100 moves and cities with less than 50 moves were excluded from the state-by-state and city-by-city analysis, respectively. However, calculations of the cost of moving by month of the year or day of the week do include data from all states and cities.

  • Avg. Cost: $397.83 
  • Avg. Time: 3 hours
