Your Long Distance Moving questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does long-distance moving cost?

Long-distance moving costs depend on the home size and the distance:

  • Moving a 1-bedroom home costs $1,500 to $5,800 for a move of 1,000 to 1,500 miles or $2,000 to $7,000 for a 2,500-mile move.
  • Moving a 2- or 3-bedroom home costs $3,000 to $8,000 for a move of 1,000 to 1,500 miles or $4,500 to $9,500 for a 2,500-mile move.
  • Moving a 4- or 5-bedroom home costs $5,000 to $17,500 for a move of 1,000 to 1,500 miles or $7,000 to $20,000 for a 2,500-mile move.

Other factors that impact the cost of a cross-country move include the season, moving insurance fees, optional packing and unpacking services, and whether you hire professional movers, rent a moving truck, or rent a moving container like U-Pack or PODS.

What is considered a long-distance move?

Most professional moving companies consider a long-distance move anything over 400 miles. This includes moves within the same state as well as interstate and cross-country moves.

How long do cross-country movers take?

A long-distance moving company takes 3 to 21 days to move your belongings from the first location to the destination. The time it takes to move your items across the country depends on the home size and amount of belongings, distance, weather conditions, and traffic.

The expected timeframe for a long-distance move is:

  • 3 to 10 days to move 400 to 800 miles
  • 4 to 12 days to move 800 to 1,200 miles
  • 5 to 15 days to move 1,200 to 1,700 miles
  • 6 to 20 days to move 1,700 to 2,400 miles
  • 7 to 21 days to move 2,400 to 3,300 miles

Another factor impacting the timeframe is whether the company combines your shipment with other customers' shipments, which adds extra stops for pickups and deliveries along the way. Ask the moving company if your shipment will be part of a "shared load" arrangement.

Is it cheaper to move furniture across the country or buy new furniture instead?

Moving high-quality furniture and appliances cross-country is typically cheaper than buying new items. Smaller and less-valuable items may cost less to replace than to ship or move across the country.

Keep these factors in mind when deciding if you should move your furniture across the country:

  • The item's monetary value
  • The item's current condition
  • Whether the item has sentimental value
  • Whether the item is a family heirloom
  • How long ago you purchased the item
  • Whether or not the item still fits your personal design style
  • How much it would cost to replace the item

Do you tip long-distance movers?

Tip long-distance movers $5 to $10 per hour or $40 to $80 per person per day. Your cross-country move may be handled by two separate moving crews—one crew that loads your belongings into the truck at the original location and another that unloads them at the destination. Tip each crew separately. If the driver who transports your belongings is not part of the crew that loads or unloads the truck, remember to tip them separately as well.

From the initial call their team has been incredible, sales to the movers. We had a lot of priceless family emblems, along with big heavy and expensive furniture. They took the time to wrap every single item that we needed to move. Their moves were professional, skilled and efficient. I would highly recommend this company to friends, family and my colleagues. Thank you Sales Rep., Wayne for such a great moving experience!

Many people had told me before about good Sharp van lines is as a moving company. I only believed it when I hired them for my move. There was nothing the movers couldn’t do. They carried huge pieces of furniture so easily. I was astonished seeing how strong and calculative those men were. Their packing skills were great. The proof came when they delivered every item undamaged to my new house. The price was quite reasonable as well with no hidden costs added in the end.

Can't say enough about the experience I had with Certified Movers. I recently moved from Basking Ridge to the Jersey Shore. It was a stressful process to begin with, between getting all the calls, estimates, and appointments. However, that stress was greatly relieved after I met the team at Certified. They were thorough, honest, and above all, amazing workers. My move went off without a hitch, and I fully recommend Certified Movers to anyone looking for a great service at a reasonable price.

Friendly, courteous, professional and fast. That describes my entire experience with the movers from Bluebell Relocation Services. From the time I submitted information for an on-line quote, through on-line scheduling, and on to the moving day, all was seamless and perfect. The movers themselves did all possible to make the move a pleasant one. They were thorough and professional in their work, and finished the work well within the time promised. I am totally satisfied with this moving service and would recommend them to all.
