Amazing experience all around. From scheduling to payment, Bellhop made my long-distance move so much less stressful. I won’t use any other long-distance moving company again!

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, check out their customer service reputation, and make sure they provide clear upfront rates without any hidden additional costs. High-quality, trustworthy, reliable movers will also be able to provide a customized move plan and a stress-free moving experience. Also, check online reviews. Read the customer reviews on Google, Yelp, and Foursquare to see what kind of moving service experience their past long-distance moving customers have had.

When scheduling most long-distance moving companies, you need to give them several weeks' notice to book. However, if you book with Bellhop, you can book long-distance movers in as little as eight days before your move.

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

Pack your belongings in storage bins. You can have a few loose items, but the vast majority of your packing should ideally be 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.

You may find it helpful to label each box with the room it will go in at your new home ("kitchen," "bedroom," etc.) for easier unloading.

You should also bring an inventory list with you so that we can help match your belongings to their respective boxes and packing containers when they arrive at your new home. This will make unpacking much easier since everything is identified from the get-go.

You will need to find a local moving company who offers long-distance services—like Bellhop. You can either start booking online or just contact one of our helpful customer service agents and we'll connect you with a team of movers and a truck in your area.
Establishing a timeline with the movers will help you stay organized. Also, have them give you an estimate of the cost of your move. Don't forget to ask about additional costs like gas fees 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.
This may seem obvious, but we see many people forget it. When packing up your items, be mindful of what is going to fit in the new home and if it's necessary for your new location. For instance, if you don't have a lot of space to store clothes or shoes then get rid of any clothing or footwear that won't fit in the new home. Additionally, if there are any items that can't be used at the new location (such as appliances) then get rid of them before you move so they don't take up space on your truck. If not, you may end up having to pay for a storage unit or temporary storage for items you aren't even using.
