How much should it cost to hire professional movers to move a 1 bedroom apartment to the building next door?

We have a rather large 1 bedroom apartment with the usual furniture and 2 persons worth of stuff and an upright piano which needs to be moved.

The last time I moved, it cost around $400 + tip. Be careful when you look into these companies, as some have a minimum number of hours and, even though we finished moving, I still had to pay for an additional hour (at $80 per hour!)

It seems to me that since you are only moving down the street, it shouldn't be as expensive as a cross-town move, where you waste a lot of time sitting in traffic and parking.

I just helped my son move out of the Arlington area and we brought the furniture to my storage and home in York, PA. I packed everything, movers arrived (1 hour late), but after they arrived the total move was one hour. Drive was 3hrs (because of traffic from VA through DC. Unload was 45-60 minutes. They charged me for 10% gas, drive time, load and unload. This move was based on time + gas. But the men that they sent to me us were wonderful!!!!! More than made up for the one hour late. You should write down what is important to you use reviews of others and be firm with the company before you choose and sign contract. Because when they arrive you sign a lot of stuff that you really don't have time to look at the moment you move. Have them email these docs to you prior!!!!
