Long Distance Moving Costs

Long Distance Moving Costs (Interstate Moving Prices, Long Distance Moving Quotes)

The average cost of moving to another state is $5,630, according to the American Moving and Storage Association, which uses 7,100 pounds of possessions, the average for a four-bedroom home. Another source, Worldwide ERC, a professional relocation service, reports the cost for an interstate move to be closer to $12,459. In comparison, an average in-state move is $1,170. Because of this great discrepancy, it is important that you do ample research months before your move to get the best moving deal. However, do not always go for the lowest price. Make sure you are getting a fair price and an efficient move from a highly rated professional moving company. Examine all charges beforehand because there could be hidden fees in the fine print of the contract. Therefore, ask specific questions, so that you do not receive a bill that is way outside of your budget.

Get every cost in writing before you sign a contract and ask your potential movers if there a "gas fee, "a "truck fee," a "stairs fee," and if there a fee for plastic bags, packing paper, shrink-wrap, and masking tape.

Typically, long-distance, interstate movers use three factors when determining the cost of your move.

  • First, the number of items and the total weight of the items that you plan to move.
  • Second, the distance between your old home and your new residence. The moving company typically chargers per-mile charge.
  • Finally, additional fees might include packing your belongings, disassembling your furniture, hoisting large belongings, and storage fees if there is a gap between the move-out date and move-in date.
