Moving rate of Nittu

10 English friendly moving companies in Japan

If you are single, the moving rate starts from around 30,000 yen. Averagely, requester’s quote is between 40,000 yen and 60,000 yen regardless of a normal or busy season.

If you don’t distinguish your stuff between discarding items and carrying items systematically, your moving quote easily exceeds 100,000 yen.

Counting on cheap moving rate with quote negotiation too much is not really good. Making sure if you have something to discard before moving is one of the ways to reduce the moving cost because a major moving company sometimes lack flexibility in price negotiation.

Nittu is said the moving price is different between a quote and actual payment. Moving price of your actual payment is 10,000 yen to 20,000 yen less than the price written on the quote.
