Long-distance moving FAQs

When looking for a professional and trustworthy moving service, first make sure you understand the type of moving services you need, and make sure they provide clear upfront rates without hidden fees. High-quality, trustworthy, reliable movers offer a customized move plan with clear pricing and a stress-free moving experience.

Also, check online reviews for the company. Read customer reviews on Google, Yelp, and Foursquare to see what kind of moving service experience past long-distance moving customers have had.

Most long-distance moving companies typically need several weeks' notice to book. However, if you book with Bellhop, you can book long-distance movers and obtain an accurate cost estimate in as little as eight days before your move.

Average long-distance moving costs vary according to size and distance to travel, but according to the American Moving and Storage Association, the average cost of a long-distance move is $4,300. This total was calculated after accounting for the cost of moving resources such as supplies and accommodations (hotel costs, etc.)

Customers can find cost savings by comparing quotes between companies, using a pod storage container, or using a labor-only moving service such as Bellhop.

Long-distance and cross-country moving checklist

Whether your move follows an in-state or interstate moving process, one of the most essential packing tips is to store belongings inside boxes and storage bins. You can have a few loose items, but the vast majority of items should be packed in cardboard boxes or plastic containers. This will make it is easier on the movers who will be packing, loading, and unloading everything from your home.

It also helps to label each portable container and indicate the room it will go in at your new home ("kitchen," "bedroom," etc.) for easier unloading. For any special items requiring the utmost care, be sure to label them as fragile items.

You should also bring a packing list with you so that we can help match your belongings to the right box of items when they arrive at your new home. This will make unpacking a much faster and less stressful experience since everything is identified from the get-go.

If you need help packing, movers such as Bellhop offer specialty services including packing supplies, kits for DIY packing, and partial or full-pack services.

You should find a local moving company who offers long-distance services like Bellhop. You can start booking online or just contact one of our helpful customer service agents. We can then connect you with our team of movers and rental trucks in your area.

Establishing a timeline with the movers will help you stay organized. Also, have them give you a ballpark estimate of the cost of your move and price options that include a mixture of services. Don't forget to ask about additional cost factors like fuel costs or per-mile charges that are in addition to their standard quote. This way, there won't be any surprises when they come to your house on moving day.

Ensure your delivery company quote includes a comprehensive insurance plan and, if needed, options of additional protection plans through insurance companies that offer reliable insurance services. An insurance requirement should stay top of mind for larger moves and is worth the additional cost.

The fewer boxes of belongings and the easier the moving process goes, the less you pay. When packing items, prioritize what fits in the new home and prioritize your most valuable belongings first. Once done, filter down from there. Think about it carefully. Every bit over time helps. For instance, if you don't have a lot of space in the new home for a decorative item or all your clothes and shoes, remove unnecessary items. Additionally, if your current appliances won't fit, sell them before you move so they don't take up space on your truck. If not, you may end up storing more than one box with items you will never use.

Be sure to do any decluttering before the move to allow for a clean entrance and hallways. All combined, this work can decrease the number of days for loading.

When you find the perfect house in a new town, you're excited, but also nervous about how it'll work out. One of the most important things to consider for residential and commercial moves is how far away the house will be from your office or school. Will it take too long to commute? Are there stores nearby that have what you need? Is there good public transportation nearby?

When looking for a new house, learning the experiences of trusted friends and family is important. Ask them what they think about it, if there's anything you need to know or worry about, and how long their commute was from where they lived before. It also helps to look at some schools in that town too. Are they good? Are they overcrowded? How's the public transportation in relation to your house and work/school?

Ask friends and family for advice

When looking for a new house getting input from your friends and family is important. Ask them what they think about it, if there's anything you need to know or worry about, and how long their commute was from where they lived before. It also helps to look at some schools in that town too - are they good, are they overcrowded? How's the public transportation in relation to your house and work/school?

Make sure you feel at home

The final thing you need to do when looking for that perfect new home is to make sure it's a place where you can really be yourself! It might seem like an odd choice on this list but there'll come a time when you need to make the call between a job or staying in your current location and it's not worth having that stress on top of everything else.
