The Issue

It seems like we’re living in an increasingly expensive world. In the years following the 2020 pandemic, the United States economy faced many new challenges, and one of those new challenges is finding an affordable moving service. Moving rates are increasing, but what are the drivers of these increased rates, and how can the average person navigate the market to find a moving service that fits their budget?

One of the lasting hurdles left over by the pandemic is the shallow labor market, and while many indicators signal that this is improving, the lasting effect is that there are fewer people willing to work for pre-pandemic rates — movers included. This means that the prices you could expect to pay for your next move have already gone up dramatically.

And that's not all

Not only has labor gotten more expensive, but additionally, the market has seen a huge increase in demand for professional movers. During the height of the 2020 pandemic, the US had over 15.9 people changing residence. This was mostly sparked by a majority of Americans making the shift to working from home, allowing them to more freely take residence in more rural areas as opposed to high-risk cities like New York City or Los Angeles. Basic economics will tell us more demand means higher costs.
