Movers In Nairobi Prices. How Much Moving Companies in Nairobi Charge
The cost moving will vary depending on a number of factors; distance involved, the size of items you are moving, where you are located and the movers in Nairobi you decide to choose to help you with the relocation process.
If you are moving within Nairobi County, movers in Nairobi prices will be between Ksh. 10, 000 to Ksh. 50, 000 for house moves and from Ksh. 12, 000 for office moves depending on the above stated factors.
Here is the breakdown of how moving companies arrive at the cost they charge you during a move:
1. Distance involved.
Let us say you live in a one bedroom house in Kilimani Westlands Nairobi, and you are moving to Syokimau still to live in another 1 another one bedroom house. The approximate distance between the two areas is 22KM – 30KM depending on the exact locations. Most moving companies will charge from Ksh. 13, 000 – Ksh. 18, 000. The bigger the distance to the destination the more you will pay because longer distances will consume more fuel.
2. Size of the Move.
What is the size of your house or office? A bigger house or office means a bigger truck will be required, more labour will be involved in the move and higher risks as well. Also if you are moving from 1 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom house, you are likely to pay more than a person moving from one bedroom to another one bedroom house. The assumption is that if you are moving to a bigger house it means you have acquired more assets that can fit into the bigger house you are moving into. Therefore you will be charged based on the size of your destination house.
3. Nature of the move.
The logistics involved in moving an office are very different from house moving. Most movers will request for a pre-visit before quoting for an office move, unlike a house moving where they can give you a quotation based on the size of your house. But if a house is bigger than three bedrooms, they are more likely to request for a survey as well. Office movers tend to be more costly than residential moves.
4. Your location in the building.
If you live on 3rd floor and you are relocating to 7th floor and both buildings do not have a lift, most movers in Nairobi prices will factor this in. You are likely to pay more in buildings without lifts and when relocating to higher floors than when you are moving say from 1st floor to 2nd floor.
5. Additional services.
This another factor that will determine movers in Nairobi prices. Addition services including such things as TV Mounting services, DSTV installation, plumbing, electrician, chandelier hanging etc. You will be charged less obviously as compared to someone who is solely seeking these services. For example in the case of TV mounting and DSTV installation you may have to part with an extra Ksh. 1500 or more depending on the size of your TV. The best thing to do is to always disclose this information to your moving company in order to avoid extra charges later on.
