26 of the best Moving Companies Dallas has to offer!

What is the Cheapest and Best Moving Company Dallas has? 

If you’re new to Plano or moving inter-neighborhood or within the city or maybe to Frisco, Allen, McKinney, Allen, or further away.

Maybe you’re moving to DFW for the first time from out of State or even another country and looking for the best-moving companies Dallas has to offer.

Whatever your reason for movers, it’s the start of a journey full of joy, excitement, and new adventures that are coming ahead if you are planning for a relocation.

Regardless of how far your long-distance moves are, whether you are just moving a few boxes of equipment/ furniture across town or moving a whole household across state lines, you need to get the job done right by the best local moving companies!

Cheapest doesn’t also equal best when it comes to Dallas movers. But we often want both.

Moving Companies Dallas

How much does it cost per hour to hire a Moving Company Dallas?

You’ll want to get a moving quote. Most movers will give you a free quote.

Usually, there is a minimum of $250-$300 for any move, and could be anywhere up to $2,000 – $3,000. Per hour you may be looking somewhere between $85 – $150 per hour for a crew and truck.


A way to save money is to rent a truck with a car hauler. Always rent the largest truck, the cost difference isn’t much.

Hire professional movers (not Craigslist guys) to load and unload the truck at each location.

Professional moving companies are trained on how to wrap and stack belongings in a truck specifically to avoid damage from truck vibration on the road. You’ll notice how well they did this when you start unpacking.

Whoever you use, make sure to do your research and be sure you get the pricing and expectations set out upfront. Local moving companies may be a good place to start especially if you’re moving within the area.


Our favorite moving Tips:

  • Clear out anything you’ve collected over the years that you don’t need
  • Start packing early to make the experience more stress-free and avoid doing it all closer to the time. Collect some packing materials (either by purchasing them yourself or asking your moving company to provide them to you or to provide packing services)
  • Scope out your new home to ensure everything will fit and figure out where your new items will go.
  • If there’s a gap between leaving your old home and moving into your new home, be sure to plan for storage services or if you using a corporate relocation, ask for their help with securing storage.
  • Ensure the boxes are labeled according to the room they’ll be unpacked in
  • Collect boxes from Neighbors or buy them from Home Depot or Lowes.
  • Keep all the daily things you need in one bag to save you from packing something by accident (phone chargers or power cables are a good example)
