Local Moving Cost Calculator

For a guaranteed moving quote, please call Walsh at 310-320-4660, or request a quote via our Contact Us form. With a guaranteed quote, the price is set. You won’t be charged more than the amount of the quote.

Also, for long-distance moves (more than 50 miles), please contact Walsh directly.

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:

  • bed
  • 2 night stands
  • dresser
  • chest of drawers
  • 10 medium boxes
  • 4 wardrobes boxes.

Living room(s), Family Room(s), Den(s): Enter the number of living rooms, family rooms or dens.
This calculation assumes each living room has:

  • sofa
  • 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:

  • refrigerator
  • microwave
  • small kitchen table
  • 4 chairs
  • 7 dish packs
  • 3 medium boxes

Dining 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:

  • desk
  • chair
  • bookcase
  • file cabinet
  • computer with monitor
  • 10 small boxes

Check yes if you have any additional items, like:

  • Entertainment Center
  • 2nd Refrigerator
  • Washer
  • Dryer
  • 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.
