Office moving firms may base their prices by the square foot or a combination of the total area, number of employees, number of truckloads or the type of materials moved. The amount and size of the materials moved also affects the price.

Typical costs:

  • Moving the contents of a 1,500-square foot office costs $750-$4,500, depending on the amount of materials moved. A legal or accounting office with many files or an office with modular units that need to be unassembled runs at the higher end of the scale. A virtual paperless company with little furniture will cost less.
  • Packing and moving a 3,000-square foot office averages $1,500 to $9,000 for spaces with large amounts of files and furniture.
  • Moving a large, 10,000 square-foot office starts around $5,000 and runs up to $30,000 for companies with numerous employees and workstations that need to be moved.
  • Office moves based on the truckload average $500-$1,500 per load depending on the time it takes to load, the difficulty and the number of movers. Average truck rates are around $100 per hour per truck with three movers or $150 per hour for a two truck with five movers.
  • An office move based on the number of employees costs $50-$250 or more per employee.

What should be included:
  • An office moving service should dismantle, transport and reassemble modular and cubicle furniture.
Additional costs:
  • A move consultant, who helps plan the move, may charge $450 for a 1,500 office space to $3,000 for a 10,000-square feet one.
  • Long carries or shuttling boxes and equipment through elevators will take more time and cost extra.
  • Packing and reconnecting voice and data lines by an IT firm runs about $150 per hour. An extra day is taken to run computer and phone cables to each desk for around $200 per hour. Cabling and moving charges for a 10-person office are about $4,000.
  • Because tipping policies vary by moving company, ask whether tipping is expected when getting a quote.
Discounts:
  • Tip: Save on office moving costs by eliminating unnecessary files and unwanted furniture first, according to Movingguru.com.
