Questions about Long Distance Moves
What is considered a long distance move?
Every company will define long distance moving differently, but it’s typically considered to be moving more than 100 miles and across state lines. Long-distance moves are also referred to as interstate moves.
What companies offer these services?
The three main options for long-distance moving are:
- Full service. Includes packing, loading, unloading and transportation.
- Truck Rental. Includes use of the equipment for a certain number of days/miles.
- Self-Move. Includes transportation, and allows for significant cost savings.
How much does a long distance move cost?
Prices depend on how much you’re moving, how far you’re moving and the move date. Full-service companies are usually the most expensive, but rates will vary. Some companies base costs on equipment size, while others use weight or space. Take a look at how these differences play out in this long-distance mover price comparison.
How long will it take for my items to arrive?
Most traditional long distance moving companies average 10-14 days for delivery. If you’re renting a truck, it will largely depend on how many miles you drive each day. U-Pack offers quick delivery — averaging just 2-5 business days.
