Three-bedroom house plans are popular among many homebuyers, from young professionals and families with growing families, to people transitioning into retirement. Three-bedroom plans provide plenty of room for guests, family members and/or home offices.
Outside a 55+ community, having an extra bedroom may add value when selling the home; however, it may not be essential for buyers in your target market.
Costs for Full-Service Moves
Professional movers tend to charge higher fees than when packing on their own, as full-service moves involve packing, transport and unpacking services and are billed by the hour.
Experienced movers can give an estimate based on the size and layout of your rooms; however, they will most likely need to perform a walk-through at both your current residence and new one in order to give an accurate quote. They’ll also factor in weight (household goods are often weighed before and after the move) as well as mileage if moving long distance.
Consider the costs associated with rental equipment like trucks and moving containers if necessary, as well as storage services that range from $50 – $300 monthly depending on whether it’s portable storage unit or warehouse space. Don’t forget budgeting for moving insurance either!
Costs for Standard Local Moves
Local moving costs typically run anywhere from $80 to $100 per hour for two people on a team, including packing, transporting and unpacking charges. Additional services like assembling or disassembling furniture or specialty items may increase this total amount.
Experienced movers can provide an estimate for the moving process based on factors like home size and number of rooms in the house, weighting your belongings to get an even more precise estimate, location and peak season costs being significant factors as well.
If you have a budget in mind for your move, be sure to request an “not-to-exceed estimate.” This will prevent the crew from spending longer than necessary finishing the task and charging additional labor charges that weren’t planned in.
Costs for Long-Distance Moves
Distance can have an enormous impact on moving costs. Reputable movers will provide an estimate before you relocate based on typical weights for homes of your size, which will include mileage charges that typically come together as one figure.
Truck rentals offer the most cost-effective solution for long distance moves. Expect to pay a daily rental rate plus charges for mileage and fuel.
Although homeowners and renters can relocate themselves, hiring professional movers is usually more convenient and stress-free. To get a clear estimate from various moving companies and factor in any additional expenses such as specialty items, stair fees or packing supplies that you might need. Compare options before selecting one that meets your budget requirements – you might be amazed how affordable a move can be!
Costs for Bonus Rooms
Moving a three-bedroom house costs significantly more than moving an apartment, as these larger structures require much more work to pack, load, and transport.
Consider additional expenses such as cleaning fees, change of address fees and utility transfers as these can quickly add up.
Take into account the cost of packing materials when budgeting for shipping costs. Boxes, tape, bubble wrap and other essential supplies can quickly add up.
If you are on a strict budget, renting a truck and cargo trailer might be your best bet; however, this could be risky when moving with family and pets. Furthermore, maintaining such large moving trucks is costly; therefore professional movers may make more financial sense for your home move – this option will also reduce stress levels while saving both time and stress for everyone involved in the move.
