No, it isn't just leaving your comfort zone to set your life down among new people and surroundings, but the move itself. Luckily, there's a way to make moves of any distance as easy and stress-free as possible. That's where we come in.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

What is Long Distance Moving?

In contrast to local or intrastate moves, long distance moving falls under federal regulation for transporting items from state to state. Companies that perform long distance, or interstate, moves must also have insurance policies that help to protect the items transported and the customer.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Do Long-Distance Movers Cost?

The average cost of a long distance move is $3,500. This is based on an average weight of 7,000 lbs. (7 rooms) and a traveling distance of 1,000 miles. Obviously, there are many factors that go into calculating moving costs, so the best bet to know the true cost is to fill out an Instaquote or call 800‑689‑8684.

What Should I Look for When Selecting a Long-Distance Moving Company?

A full-service mover can provide assistance in your long-distance move. Here are a few points to ponder when choosing a long-distance moving company.

  1. Does the Moving Company Provide References? Don't hesitate to ask the company for recent references and the types of experience they've had. Also, check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). A BBB accreditation means the business is in good standing and is trustworthy.
  2. Does the Company Provide In-Home Quotes? A moving company may be able to give general pricing over the phone or online, but a company that shows up and inspects exactly what type and how many belongings will be transported is a better bet. The quote process will be more exact, eliminating surprises with the bill later on.
  3. Does the Long Distance Mover Have Proper Licensing? Relocating across state lines requires special permits and insurance coverage to protect you and your belongings. Ask if the company has current permits and licenses. Shy away from any mover that hesitates to answer these questions.
What is the Best Way to Long Distance Move?

Moving cross country may seem like a daunting prospect. If you've never done it before, it certainly is. However, there are steps that you can take to ensure your journey and that of your possessions, are as smooth as possible. There are 3 primary ways most choose to move cross country:

  • Hiring a professional moving company
  • Using a container service
  • DIY (do-it-yourself)

Read our cross-country moving guide to learn more.

How Far Is A Long Distance Move?
A long-distance move is any move that travels more than 400 miles. Local moves are moves that go within 50 miles of your current location. A cross-country move is any move that crosses state lines. An interstate move is any move that goes across two states.
How Do I Hire Movers?
As with anything in life, not all moving companies are created equal, and some are better than others at providing this service. Some tips to consider: read reviews, get multiple estimates, get referrals, check experience, and check their licensing.
