        knoxville skyline

        There are many reasons why someone would move to Knoxville — from its affordability to its family-friendly attractions like the Museum of East Tennessee History. Knoxville is also an excellent place for retirees on a fixed budget who want to live in an area with cultural attractions and a low cost of living. Regardless of your reasons for moving, you can find a dependable moving company with our helpful list of the best moving companies in Knoxville.

        How much do movers cost in Knoxville?

        The average cost of moving locally or long-distance to Knoxville ranges from $700 to $3,000. Most companies base the price on distance, individual demands and the size of the required workforce.

        It’s not uncommon for pricing to go down during times of low demand, which is typically from January to March.

        Local moving cost in Knoxville, TN

        The average cost for a local move in Knoxville is about $500, but moving companies may charge you either a flat or hourly rate as well as truck fees. Because of the different pricing structures, it’s essential to get the specifics of your moving costs before signing a contract. Since popular Knoxville neighborhoods like Old City and Fort Sanders are suburban areas, additional fees for things like maneuvering small alleys or double parking aren't common issues.

        Long-distance moving cost to Knoxville, TN

        The average cost for long-distance moves to or from Knoxville is $2,835, with prices usually determined by mileage and weight. Here are a few examples of what to expect when estimating the cost of a long-distance move for a one-bedroom residence:

        Starting cityDistanceAverage cost
        San Diego, CA2,200 miles$3,100 - $4,272
        Portland, ME1,025 miles$2,310 - $3,102
        Richmond, VA435 miles$1,833 - $2,394

        Moving services in Knoxville

        There are several services offered by Knoxville moving companies. The level of service you pick — whether it's a local or long-distance move — affects the price. Some relocation services to choose from include:

        • Pod-based moving services: The moving company delivers a storage pod to your home. You pack your items in boxes and load the pod, and the company is responsible for moving it to your destination.
        • Packing service: The moving company packs all of your items. Packing service is typically added to basic moving jobs and costs anywhere from $300 for a studio upwards of $1,000 for a large home.
        • Specialty moving service: Specialty moving services are usually charged by the item or weight and used for items like pianos, antiques or fine art.

        How to pick a moving company in Knoxville

        When you’re picking a Knoxville moving company, it’s crucial to understand what moving services you require. Some moving companies specialize in services that others may not provide. Before requesting a quote, ask yourself questions like:

        • Do I only need a few people to help me move, or do I need a full-service provider?
        • Do I have any specialty items, such as a piano or expensive art?
        • Do I need to store my items before moving into my new residence?

        Next, do some research before hiring any moving company. By looking at customer reviews and speaking with friends and family about their experiences, you increase your chance of finding a company with excellent customer service. Researching companies is especially important for long-distance relocations or specialty services where the company is moving something of value.

        Protection from moving scams in Knoxville

        Tennessee does not regulate intrastate moves, and local movers are not required to be licensed and registered. Because of this, it is crucial to research any company you are thinking of hiring to avoid scams. Also, be sure the company has the proper insurance to protect your belongings.

        If you're moving to another state, check that the company is licensed through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. You can also file a complaint if you experience safety, service or discrimination issues with an interstate moving company.
