How to choose movers in Nashville

Nashville Skyline

Nashville's population grew by 45 percent from 2000 to 2017, resulting in an economic boom and thriving music, healthcare and tech industries. After experiencing a 10.6 percent increase in residents from 2010 to 2017, Nashville is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Residents moving in and around the city rely on moving companies to safely transport their belongings across the city.

The months of June, July and August are traditionally the busiest times for moving companies. As such, rates are typically higher. In Nashville, students also move into area colleges such as Vanderbilt University, Middle Tennessee State University and Belmont University. Due to this seasonal increase in residents, moving companies tend to be booked for the majority of the summer.

Moving quotes in Nashville are dependent on a variety of factors, including the seasonal demand. To provide customers with a quote, moving companies consider factors such as:

  • The number of movers necessary to complete the move.
  • The total number of hours the job will take.
  • How many rooms need to be moved.
  • The average total weight of all objects being packed and moved.

Some Nashville moving companies offer quotes based on a flat rate. This rate is calculated by multiplying the estimated number of hours for the move by the company's hourly rate. The American Moving and Storage Association notes the average cost of a local move is $2,300. This estimate is based on four movers at $200 per hour based with an average total weight of 7,400 pounds.

It is possible to lock in a low moving rate or quote. Here are some tips for finding the best moving rate:

  • Provide moving companies with clear and accurate information. This information should include your home's floor plan, square footage and additional features.
  • Be flexible with your moving timetable. If possible, schedule your move during an off-peak season or around the lowest rates.
  • Donate, recycle or toss unnecessary items. This will reduce the total weight movers will need to pack and haul.
  • Ask for a written, in-home estimate for an accurate quote.
  • Compare estimates from at least three different Nashville moving companies.

In addition to finding the lowest rates, it is important to partner with a moving company you trust with your belongings.
