Whether you are looking for a professional mover for an international relocation or you simply want to move within the country, this guide will help you understand what the Italian market looks like and how you can choose the moving company that best suits your needs.
Italy’s landscape for moving companies is characterized by three main types of businesses:
- A small number of large firms operating nationwide
- Hundreds of local moving companies mostly serving their regional areas, and only occasionally operating across the country.
- Quote comparison platforms that partner up with hundreds of moving companies, both domestically and abroad
Please note that this guide mostly focuses on private house moves, if you are organizing an office move, head over here to learn how to plan it best.
Who should I choose for international relocations?
Given the average high cost of moving to/from abroad, it goes without saying that you should base your choice on two main factors: the quotes you receive (make sure to compare at least 3 different ones) and reviews (read everything you can about the company before finalizing your choice). The links below are some examples of well established, experienced international movers, but you should ultimately look at a wider amount of options, and keep in mind that higher prices don’t necessarily mean a better service.
Moves within Europe are normally carried out over ground transportation (almost always a truck) whereas relocations overseas or to further destinations are often done over freight shipping. A faster, more expensive way is through air transport, which is mostly a good choice for either urgent moves or those with a limited amount of goods to transport (less than 10 cubic meters).

Movers for domestic moves
While we advise to compare quotes from the pool of qualified companies we work with, we also wanted to list a few companies that you can get in touch with based in Italy’s biggest cities. Some of these companies also provide international moving services, but not all of them, and we have not vetted all of these solutions, which may or may not be part of the network we work with.

Pro tip: while representatives of the moving company may speak English, that doesn’t meant that the movers doing the job on the moving day will, so if that’s a challenge be ready to either get in touch with the company over the phone or rely on technology to smoothen out communication with them.
How much will a moving company cost me?
For moving services, prices in Italy are slightly higher than the European average, as factors that impact this are the high prices for gas and the urban landscape, consisting of old historic centers where it is often a bit more difficult to perform a house move. The table below can be used as a rough indicator of how how much you might spend on your move.
