As a moving company, we are here to move you whether it’s across the street, across the state, or across the country. Local moves are typically less than 50-60 miles away and within the state you’re already living; these are also sometimes called intrastate moves. Long-distance moves are longer than 50-60 miles and if they’re across state lines, they are called interstate moves. Whether you are moving locally or long distance, fuel costs are commonly a factor in the price of your move. So, that means that the longer the distance you’re moving, the more expensive the move will be.
Whether you’re moving locally or long distance, one factor of the cost of your move will be the amount of stuff you are moving. The more you move, the bigger the truck you will need and the more of a moving crew you will need as well. If you are moving locally, you can cut down on this cost by moving some smaller items yourself. If you’re moving long-distance, you can store some smaller items in your own vehicle as you relocate, or you can sell or donate items that you don’t need anymore.
When it comes to a long-distance move, you will also want to think about how you will be making the move yourself. Will you be driving or flying? Your own personal mode of transportation will greatly affect your move as well. Create a detailed plan and schedule to help you map out the move each step of the way.
