Are you looking for an efficient mover in Kenya to take care of your moving needs? You are right to take the process of choosing a mover seriously before hiring a house moving company. We all know the internet is littered with numerous unprofessional individuals who are bent on taking advantage of your situation. 

That is no different in Kenya, where due to the accelerated rate of growth in the country, there are a lot of moving firms to choose from. While this gives you the chance to select the most competent out of a quantifiable sample, it also makes it hard to pick the right company for the job. 

Nairobi, Kenya’s largest city, is home to thousands of packers and movers. While a majority of these firms are reliable and offer high quality services, there also exist a large number of fraudulent movers in the city in the sun. In this review of the best movers in Kenya, we are going to round up the best movers for local house moving, continental movers, and international movers.

Cost of moving within Nairobi

Moving within Nairobi should not be so much of a fuss even if you are moving for the first time. It will not only save you time but also lessen the cost of the entire process. The charges for packing and moving your belongings to a different house will depend on a few factors. 

  1. Volume of Goods

The volume of goods to be moved implies the space and weight of the items you need to move. The more the volume of goods the higher the cost for transporting them is going to be. To cut down on costs, it is recommended that you get rid of all the unwanted items in your luggage. 

  1. Distance

The distance between the two locations you need to transport your items between is critical to determining the cost. However, the per-kilometer charges differ from company to company. Movers with more and better-trained employees charge more. If you intend to move from one county to the other, it is best to book movers and hire packers in advance to avoid extra costs. 

  1. Size of the House

The size of your house is also a primary factor in the determination of your moving cost. Most movers in Kenya base their moving charges on the size of the house. For instance, it will cost you an average of Ksh. 15,000 to move items from a one bedroom house in Kahawa Sukari to Imara Daima (approximately 25 Km away). In contrast, it would cost you approximately Ksh. 25,000 to relocate a 2 bedroom house for the same area and distance. 

  1. The timing of your move

The timing of your house moving is essential in determining how much it will cost to move. In my experience, it is best to schedule your shift for mid-months and mid-weeks. That’s because during these times packers and movers are not clogged with work as most people prefer moving on end-months and weekends. Roads in Kenya are also less crowded in mid-weeks and mid-months.
