  1. 134B Hall St., Concord, NH
  2. 211 Gay Street, Manchester, NH
  3. 407 West Main Street, Tilton, NH.

We give you a database average for generally similiar moves. It is best to consider this a thinking tool. However, please note: your final cost is based on the hourly rate and mileage above.

The size, volume, access, weather conditions, and logistics of your move including the distance truck to entry way, all play a part in the cost of your move.

Long Distance Moves (outside of NH)

For long distance moves we offer a Binding Estimate of Cost based on an inventory list, either provided by you or obtained by our on-site inspection, your description of the logistics of the move (what floor, distance to exits, unusual circumstances, etc.), or a combination of all the above. In any case, you wind up with no surprises, assuming the final move is substantially what we both understand it to be, verified by our agreement with you and signed prior to your move.

"This organization is excellent. From the beginning with a quote to the end with the final move. Everyone I encountered was nice, thorough and seemed to truly enjoy their job. Whether it's answering the phone, providing boxes or actually moving my belongings. The team that did the physical move was AWESOME! Organized, efficient, careful, respectful, polite. Just an incredible team. Thank you Starving Artists for making a very stressful move just a bit better!"
