How to choose movers in Detroit

detroit skyline

For the first time in more than 60 years, Detroit's population and density are increasing. In 2018, singles and young families are moving to Detroit and home values are on the rise in many neighborhoods.

Millennials are moving into the lofts and condos in the Lafayette Park and Midtown areas. Neighborhoods with detached single family homes, such as East English Village, Brush Park, Boston Edison and Sherwood Forest, are seeing an influx of first-time home buyers and young families.

If you're thinking of relocating to Detroit, the best time to do so is in the fall. Spring and summer are peak moving seasons and that's reflected in the rates of Detroit moving companies. While some companies offer discounts during the winter months, Michigan's unpredictable weather might cost more in headaches than it saves in dollars to relocate during the winter.

Weekends are busier moving days than weekdays. If your schedule is flexible, inquire about reduced rates for mid-week services, especially in the middle of the month.

Rates depend on multiple factors, such as pick-up and drop-off locations and the size of the load. If you're moving locally and pack yourself, you could spend only a few hundred dollars. Most Detroit movers charge between $25 and $100 per worker per hour, but that doesn't include additional fees.

Ask your company how much extra it costs for:
  • Packing supplies
  • Packing labor
  • Travel to pick-up location
  • Moving bulky items
  • Stair navigation
  • Elevator fees
  • Furniture assembly

When hiring a Detroit moving company, inquire about all potential fees before signing a contract to avoid any surprises when the bill comes.

If moving between states, make sure the company you hire is licensed for interstate moving. Some Detroit movers only do in-state moves. The Michigan Movers Association is a great resource for general moving tips and filing a complaint if something goes awry.

Finally, if you're moving to Michigan, check out Michigan SOS for information about changing your driver's license, vehicle and voter registration. The state tourism organization Pure Michigan has a roundup of inspiring places around The Great Lakes State to get you excited about moving here.
