Household Moving to Dover, Delaware
Dover is a city in, as well as the capital of, the U.S. state of Delaware. It is also home to a population of over 36,000 residents, making it the second-largest city in the state, after Wilmington. This makes it a lot easier to find both auto transport and household moving to Dover, though Wilmington, which is larger and easier to access, is more popular for both. That said, you shouldn’t have that hard a time finding moving quotes and services to or from Dover, especially if you keep reading and learn more about it.
So…household moving to Dover isn’t all that popular?
It’s not that it’s not popular, it’s that the city is small and simply doesn’t attract much traffic, either for car shippers or household movers. Moving is much different than shipping a car; it requires more time, more money and more energy, and it’s a lot more expensive. But still, moving companies have the same basic pricing structure as car shippers. That is, they still price based on where you’re shipping from and to and what you’re shipping. Weight still plays a role in your price, though with household moving it’s going to be a lot more expensive. They also try to stick to the fastest routes possible, and those areas that are harder to get to tend to be more expensive.
Is it really that hard to find household moving to Dover?
No, but at the same time there are a lot of areas that are more popular than Dover. This includes Wilmington, to the north. However, moving companies can’t just meet you an hour or two from your house like a car shipper can. They have to get to your door, and if they can’t they’ll have to contract with a local mover with smaller trucks. Chances are Dover won’t have this problem, on account of its size. Still, though, the carrier has to get there, and they’re probably going to increase the price considering they have to drive into the depths of Delaware. It won’t be impossible, but expect prices to be slightly higher than average.
