Ask your mover

  • Places like high-rises and managed apartments will often require a copy of your mover's insurance and elevator reservation on moving day.
  • Check ahead with any neighborhood, community, or HOA rules on moving to ensure a smooth move.
  • 40Ft Moving Truck, One Day. City Cost $60 Please note this permit is only available in metered areas and we will need the meter numbers to get the permit.
  • To ensure that in-state movers operate safely and reliably, moving companies in Alabama must have a registration number issued by the Alabama Public Service Commission (APSC).
  • Movers assume liability at 60 cents (or less) per-pound per item. Thus, a lightweight five-pound item valued at $500 only pays out $3, if it's lost or damaged. Some moving companies offer expanded valuations, such as declared value or lump sum value protection, which offers a step up from released value protection. You may inquire about these options with your preferred moving company.

Work with your movers to ensure all these items are taken care of before moving day.

Average cost to rent a moving container in Montgomery, AL

The containers are delivered, you load everything into them, the company picks it up, and it gets put in storage until you're ready for everything to be delivered to your new place.

Naturally, the advantage here is storage. These things will buy you time if you end up with a weird gap between leases.

Here's roughly what it's gonna cost:

  • Storage Fee: $69.95 per 30 days
  • Damage Coverage: $10 - $350 based on coverage level
  • Parking Permit (if necessary): 40Ft Moving Truck, One Day. City Cost $60 Please note this permit is only available in metered areas and we will need the meter numbers to get the permit.
  • Door Lock (if necessary): $10 - $15
  • Equipment Costs (if necessary): Dolly, straps, blankets (optional)

So, storing everything in a one-bedroom will end up costing somewhere around $80 - $460 door to door. Still, you might want to factor in a little extra in case you end up paying for labor.

Each large container holds about 3 rooms until it's completely full. You might end up needing more containers, but keep in mind that your cost will essentially double with each container you add.
