How to Move to Another State
If you’re planning to move to another state, you’re probably asking yourself how to go about it. Depending on which state you’re moving from and to, you could be in for a dramatic change of lifestyle or a minor change of scenery. Here are some things to keep in mind when thinking about how to move to another state:
Plan a budget: This is the big one. Of course, a long distance move will cost more than a local move, so once you’ve set your budget, stick to it by comparing moving companies that offer affordable prices and quality service.

Moving long-distance is very different from moving down the street. You’ve likely already discovered that it requires a lot of planning: for delivery at your origin and destination, the logistics involved with getting your belongings to you in a timely manner, the requirements of each state you’re traveling to (not to mention the authority to transport your belongings across state lines). That’s why it’s so important to look to moving companies that specialize in long-distance moving.

I think the term “one-way moving” is funny. I mean, one-way flights might be rare, but I imagine that most moves are one-way. I mean honestly, who packs up their whole house to move it across the country then turns right around and moves it back? Is there round-trip moving in comparison? (If that has happened to you, my heart goes out to you). Despite all that, because of the truck rental industry, people are familiar with the phrase “one-way moving,” as one-way truck rental is a popular option. If you’re looking at one-way moves and want to find the lowest prices, I have GREAT news for you!

I think you’ll find that U-Pack Moving is! Want to find out for yourself? Get a free moving quote. It’s easy, instant, and there’s no obligation.
Here’s something I know for certain: moving state to state is a BIG deal. If you go about it the right way, it can turn out great! If you don’t, it certainly has the potential to put a big dent in your bank account. The last thing you want to do is pay too much, so if saving money is at the top of your “things to do” list, you’re on the right track.
No one wants to spend tons of money on their move.

Excellent question. And here’s the answer: Most people find that U-Pack is the cheapest way to move long distance.
While we’ll be the first to admit that occasionally there are exceptions, in most cases, the cost to move long distance with U-Pack is significantly lower than full-service movers, and comparable to truck rental. But, of course, with U-Pack an experienced professional does the driving. That means you get to enjoy the trip in your own vehicle (sounds great, doesn’t it?).
Here’s how U-Pack works:

In an ideal world, if we were moving to another state we would know exactly when and where were moving at least 6-8 weeks before the big day. Early on we would start researching moving companies, getting quotes, scheduling the move, gathering packing supplies and packing up rooms one-by-one. Ahhh
sounds simple, doesnt it?

Moving out of state is a fairly simple process at least the actual moving part is. It's leaving behind friends, family and a life that you're comfortable with that's the tough part. Although we aren't able to do much to make leaving easier, we're committed to making moving as easy as possible.
Follow these moving tips and I think you'll find moving out of state isn't as hard as you expected:
Get prepared. 30-60 days before moving out of state, start planning. Decide on a moving budget so you'll know just how much you're able to spend for an out-of-state moving company.
