every site I go to they want my email before they'll give me a quote and I don't want to give out my email or other personal info.
I just need a rough estimate if anyone has used a mover to move a one-bedroom, locally.
I'm having a neighbor move me, and I need a guide as to what to pay him.

I'd estimate between $300-$400.

Get a "One" user GMail account, then after you got your quotes never use it again.

I have a junk email, but these places want my phone # address and want me to agree to receive phone calls from various tel-marketers.

thanks Kyle, that's about what I was thinking. I don't have as much furniture as most one -bedrooms , eg. no couch,
but do have a lot of boxes.

there were only 2 quotes I found online which were just there, and did not require information.

one was $248-369.
the other was $1200!

I agree with Kyle. Pay a little more if you have heavy things and stairs involved. Pay closer to $300 if it's ground floor and an easy "out the door to the parking lot" sort of route.

Most local places will charge by the hour, depends on how much stuff you have. Could take all day or half a day.

Moving "locally" can mean a lot of things... it depends upon how large your city is, and how busy the moving companies are. They charge more in the summer, for example... But a good ballpark figure for two guys and a truck to move a one bedroom is about $500.
