Is it cheaper to buy new furniture or move it?

For a local move, it is much more cost effective to hire a mover. If you are moving out of state, expect each pound you are moving to cost about $6. So, if you are moving a table that is 300 lbs consider replacing it if no longer is worth over $180. You also have to consider that furniture delivery is taking 4–8 weeks and you still need to pay to have delivered furniture shipped. Our short answer — unless you have pressboard furniture it’s cheaper to move it.

Can you move a dresser with clothes in it?

Yes, your movers can remove the dresser drawers when they arrive if need be. Dressers should be wrapped, packed and protected with drawers in during a move. Find other Boston moving company information here.
