Local Moving Cost Calculator
This calculator will estimate the cost of your move, but it can’t offer an exact quote.
For the most accurate quote, please call Walsh Moving at (310) 320-4660, or request a quote via our Contact Us form.
Drive time: Estimate the drive time between origin and destination. Remember, Walsh calculates time in 15 minute increments.
As a general rule:
1 – 10 mile drive may take 15 minutes
11 – 25 mile drive may take 30 minutes
26 – 40 mile drive may take 45 minutes
41 – 60 mile drive may take 60 minutes
Carry: Estimate the distance (in feet)between where the truck can park and your door. Most homes with a front yard have 50 ft. carry. If you are in an apartment complex, we may have a 50 carry before entering the complex. **Hard time measuring, the average step for an adult is around 2 feet. Count the number of steps walked and multiply by 2 to estimate the distance in feet.
Flights of Stairs: How many flights of stairs between the truck and your door.
Elevator: Will an elevator be used during the move. If we are using the elevator, you do not need to enter the amount of flights of stairs.
Bedroom(s): Enter the number of bedrooms you will be moving. This calculation assumes each bedroom has:
- 2 night stands
- chest of drawers
- 10 medium boxes
- 4 wardrobes boxes.
Living room(s): Enter the number of living rooms or dens.
This calculation assumes each living room has:
- love seat
- coffee table
- 2 end tables
- small TV stand,
- medium-sized TV
- 10 medium boxes
Kitchen: Check yes if the kitchen will be moved.
This calculation assumes the kitchen has:
- small kitchen table
- 4 chairs
- 7 dish packs
- 3 medium boxes
Dinning Room: Check yes if the dinning room will be moved.
This calculation assumes the dinning room contains:
- buffet cabinet
- dinning room table
- 6 chairs
- 5 medium boxes
Office: Check yes if the office will be moved.
This calculation assumes the office contains:
- file cabinet
- computer with monitor

Boxes: Enter the number of additional boxes. This calculation assumes the boxes are medium size (3.0 cube) boxes.
Sofa(s): Enter the number of additional sofas.

Bookcase(s): Enter the number of bookcases.
Check yes if you have any additional items, like:
- Entertainment Center
- 2nd Refrigerator
- Piano (Note: most pianos need at least 3 men on the job)
Select the Number of men you would like to help move your goods. If the move takes longer than 9 hours, try increasing the man power. When changing the number of men, you will notice the cost of your move will be around the same price. However, the more men on the job, the less time your move will take.
Total Time is the estimated time the move should take. Remember, this is a crude tool. Actual time may be different. Double drive time is already included.
Estimated cost is based on the estimated time multiplied by our hourly rate. There are no additional charges or fees.
