Surely, there are simple and smooth ways to do it. Though, is it expensive?

Furniture transport – does route length matter?

To give you a glimpse of potential transport costs of exemplary furniture I have looked into online transport offers within the UK and this is what I found out:

  • Desk transport:
    • 1-50 miles: between 16 – 80£
    • 50-150 miles: 32 – 96£
    • 150-300 miles: 40 – 136£
    • 300-500 miles: 64 – 152£
  • Armchair transport:
    • 1-50 miles: between 16 – 48£
    • 50-150 miles: 32 – 72£
    • 150-300 miles: 44 – 104£
    • 300-500 miles: 64 – 120£
  • Sofa transport:
    • 1-50 miles: between 20-56£
    • 50-150 miles: 48 – 80£
    • 150-300 miles: 56 – 120£
    • 300-500 miles: 64 – 128£

The prices above depends on the size, type and complexity of the particular furniture. The distance surely influence the cost, but it seems like its has a smaller impact on the price than the factors mentioned earlier. It’s also popular to move table with chairs or sofa, chairs and electronics together in one transport – in the end it’s cheaper than sending each furniture separetly. Would you like to get some more great tips on transport costs?
