How to choose movers in Kansas City

kc moving companies skyline

The cost of living in KC is one of the lowest in the country, which is why millennials are starting to call KC “home,” especially around River Market and Westport. Those moving between Kansas and Missouri shouldn’t expect to pay an extra fee for crossing state lines, a representative from PurpleHeart Moving said. According to them, price is dictated by mileage.

Kansas Missouri
Income tax 3.95% 3.75%
Sales tax 8.15% 7.58%
Property tax 1.29% 0.91%

When choosing which side of State Line to live, it’s important to know the tax differences. Though the variances are small, taxes make a big impact once a year. Because the metro area is booming with jobs, many people work in the city on the Missouri side but live in the KC suburbs. Moving could either simplify or complicate your taxes, depending on where you work.

KC housing market

Houses here are selling fast—same-day fast. For buyers, it can be overwhelming to tap into the hot market. Experts say that buyers must be prepared to see a house and make an offer immediately, often over asking price because four to six other buyers will be doing the same thing.

The hottest areas of the city include Westport, Waldo and Brookside. These neighborhoods are mostly older or renovated homes and buyers won’t be charged extra fees from moving companies. If you move to the Downtown or River Market areas, which have mostly high-rise apartment buildings, you may run into unexpected “stair fees” and “long carry fees” if the truck has to park away from your building.
