Durham Moving Tips

Durham may have decent weather sometimes, but we always recommend a mid-month, mid-week move, in any season but the summer. Take a word of advice from the iMoving pros: Avoid a June, July, or August move if possible. It’s the most expensive time to move, and it’s usually WAY too hot for hauling boxes.

A Durham move can cost you anywhere from $350 to $8300 and beyond. It all comes down to how much you’re moving, and how far you’re traveling. Keep in mind, that local movers charge per mover, per hour (with about 2 movers per room), and long-distance movers charge by weight (or volume) and miles.

Moving containers are a great middle ground between a DIY job and hiring full-service movers. A moving container company will drop off the container at your place, and you can fill it up on your own schedule. When it's ready to go, just contact the container company and they'll pick it up and transport it for you. It's like having a portable storage unit that gets delivered to your door.

To prepare for a move in Durham, we recommend taking a few important steps. First, make sure you've got a job lined up at your destination. Secondly, downsize as much as possible before shopping for movers. If you're doing your own packing, box up your stuff starting with the least-used items, and always pack an essentials bag so you aren't stuck rooting through boxes for your toothbrush or clean underwear.

When you move to a more built-up or urban area, chances are they won't let you park an entire semi-truck in front of your apartment. Your movers will have to park the main truck at a staging area and use a smaller box truck or van to transport your stuff to (and from) the trailer. This is called a moving shuttle, and the inconvenience comes at a price. Blame your city council.
