    How to choose movers in Cleveland

    cleveland moving companies skyline

    Cleveland is the seat of Cuyahoga County, which lost almost 5,000 of its 1.2 million residents from 2016 to 2017, the third largest county loss nationwide. However, certain areas in Cleveland are attracting newcomers, including Downtown, Tremont and the eastern neighborhoods bordering Lake Erie.

    Six counties border Cuyahoga: Medina, Lorain, Lake, Summit, Geauga and Portage. All six gained residents in 2017 while Ohio’s overall population grew by a modest 0.3 percent.

    Timing impacts moving prices. The busiest home-buying season in Cleveland is spring. Cleveland’s peak moving seasons are spring and summer. The last week of the month and the later days of the week are also busiest for moving companies. With Cleveland's icy and snowy winters, residents avoid moving during the cold. Booking your move far in advance may also save you money.

    Local and out-of-state moving in Cleveland

    Prices for local (intrastate) movers are typically charged per hour, yet guaranteed price estimates are possible. The average cost per mover is $25 to $50 per hour. Cleveland averages about $95 per hour for two movers and a truck and $165 with four movers.

    To avoid unexpected costs, tell your moving company if its truck won’t be able to park near the door and if there are stairs. Older apartment buildings in areas like Old Brooklyn and Euclid were built as “walk-ups” of up to four floors.

    If moving out-of-state, you’ll need an interstate mover that meets certain regulatory requirements. Here are types of quotes that interstate movers offer:

    • Binding estimate gives a definite final price.
    • Non-binding estimate gives an approximate price with an understanding that the final price will not exceed the estimate by a reasonable amount, such as 10 percent.
    • Not-to-exceed estimate is one where the final price will be the lower amount of either a binding estimate or the actual cost.

    Cleveland has some emerging areas that are worth a home investment. Read the City of Cleveland's Strategy for Development & Revitalization plan for more information.

    Price range for interstate moves to Cleveland

    Origin Median Range
    Indianapolis, IN $3,246 $2,731 - $3,762
    Grand Rapids, MI $3,175 $2,672 - $3,679
    Memphis, TN $4,040 $3,380 - $4,701
    Charlotte, NC $3,582 $3,006 - $4,161

    Note: Estimates based on a 2 to 3 bedroom home with partial packing assistance service in August.
