What Counts as a Long Distance Move?

Alternate Text

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 typically takes between 3 to 14 days, depending on the distance, the size of your home, and the route.

For example, a move across state lines might take 3 to 7 days, while a cross-country move can take 7 to 14 days or more. Always consult your moving company for a precise estimate.

Here’s a link to our moving cost calculator for an in-depth estimation, but long-distance moves can range from $3,000 to upwards of $17,000.

Normally, you want to start researching and comparing quotes from moving companies 2-3 months in advance to get the best deal possible.

  • Are there any hidden moving costs?
  • What is your cancellation policy?
  • What services do you offer?

These are some good questions to ask moving companies.

It’s most common to have some pre-move preparations like final checks and paperwork. Then, the movers arrive and load the truck. Then, you’re off!

Yes, movers should definitely be tipped for long-distance moves. Anywhere for $40-$80 is a good bet.

Contact the moving company immediately and speak with their management team to understand the cause of the delay and get an updated delivery estimate.

Document all communications and follow up regularly. Inquire about compensation for any inconvenience and review your insurance policy for coverage on delays.

No, your belongings are not automatically insured during a long-distance move. The level of insurance coverage depends on the type of protection you choose and the moving company's policies.

The first step is to document the damage. Take clear photographs of the damaged items, the condition of the boxes, and any other relevant details. Also, create a detailed inventory list of the damaged items, noting their condition and the extent of the damage.

Most long-distance moving companies do not transport pets due to safety, regulatory, and comfort concerns.

It’s typically better to arrange for a pet relocation service or transport your pets yourself.

Some specialized pet moving companies offer services including transportation and care for pets during the move.
