What Counts as a Long Distance Move?
A long distance move takes a bit more planning and prep than a local relocation. Here’s what sets your long distance movers apart from local movers:
Local moves: These are short-distance moves. Anything within the same state and a 100 mile radius from your point of origin counts as a local move. Local movers usually charge per hour, per mover (and it takes about two movers per room).
Long distance moves: Anything over 100 miles or across state lines counts as a long distance move. These are charged by distance traveled and the weight of your stuff. Long distance movers also need to be federally licensed to handle interstate relocations.

Long Distance Moving FAQ
A long distance move will typically cost between $1000 and $8500. We’ve seen some that are cheaper, and some that are more expensive. The biggest factors behind your final price are the distance of your move and how much stuff you’re hauling. Moving a studio apartment just across the state line is going to be much cheaper than moving a 5-bedroom home across country.
In the moving industry, local moves are defined as anything under 100 miles and within the same state. Long distance moving is anything over 100 miles or across state lines. Because they operate across state lines, long distance movers need to be certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
As a general rule of thumb, long distance movers won’t want to transport anything that could potentially damage their trucks. This means nothing flammable, and nothing pressurized. For legal reasons, long distance movers can’t transport plants, animals, or firearms. Check in with your long distance moving company to see their full no-go list.
A DIY move with a rented truck is always going to be your cheapest option. Whether it’s actually worth it is another question. Once you factor in the price of gas, lodging, and those missed hours from your regular 9-5, hauling your own stuff may actually be the same price as hiring full service movers - and full service movers are a lot less stressful.
Book your move early. Two months in advance, minimum. This gives you plenty of wiggle room to pack at your own pace, and the added flexibility may net you some sweet discounts from your movers. In terms of actual dates, try to avoid June, July, and August. Those are the busiest (and most expensive) months for moving.
